He is the Lang Lang type of pianist. You either love him or hate him. He has amazing technique, but some say he plays only the notes and much more.

Never heard of him, eh. What planet are you from ? Oh yes I see, Australia :P . But you do have Google there, haven't you ?

No he's not 'the Lang Lang type of pianist' - whatever that is. Just look at his recorded repertoire, listen to some samples on the Hyperion website, and read some critical comments, to see why I am saying that. His combination of sheer virtuosity, intellect and musical curiosity is unparallelled in this age, and puts him in a completely different league than, say, Lang Lang or Volodos (and I mean no disrespect to either of these gentlemen).

That's Paul Wee. IMO the greatest virtuosos on this site are him, Hotaik Sung, Dejan Sinadinovic (and Hanna Shybayeva maybe). I'm only talking about virtuosity, not musicality. There are some extremely musical pianists on this site as well. But I think that these have the best technique, or at least showed the best technique.

I highly doubt that. It'll be very difficult to play the level he's at right now.

no, I don't think so. horowitz is good that is what I must say but hamelin has a very very very good technic. I think you like horowitz or you don't. I don't like horowitz that much. but hamelin I love!

No. But Horowitz is more musical, etc. Hamelin is just a magician who can play however he wants, but not always with the "real music" people like Horowitz have.

Franz Liszt maybe, but he is dead. Technically speaking, Hoffmann and Rachmaninov also make good chance, but they're dead as well :( . Then maybe Arcadi Volodos, of the younger generation.
