    By 'parody', do you mean it's a fake, or you don't like his interpretation?

    If you listen to the electric recordings of SS and compare them to the available reproductions of his piano rolls, you'd think that's a different pianist is playing. What emerges from that piano roll is not even an 'interpretation', it's something totally distorted and artistically meaningless from my point of view.

    It didn't seem incredibly distorted to me, but I suppose we could argue about that ad infinitum and not get anywhere. I imagine you'll take it as a sign of my inferior sensibilities, but I suppose there's not anything I can do about that, either.
