    I'm not quite a fan of Cziffra, but his toccata of Schumann is a work of a genius. Cziffra conjuncted obsessive percussion with real poetry. In the octave passage you really hear his gipsy blood pumping through his body. You can hear and see him at work on http://youtube.com/watch?v=NncHj0BKCps . Just mindblowing.
