Sorry but that recording is copyrighted.
I'm sorry your right. I was forgotten that
Argerich is the greatest living classical pianist. Bar none.
agreed bahaha :lol:
no I don't think so.
I think she you can compare her with nelson freire. But What about lang lang or kissin?
I have no problem with declaring the greatest composer of all times (it just has to be Bach... who else) but I do not believe there is a 'greatest pianist', whether living or deceased. There are many great pianists, they are all different and have their own unique strenghts and weaknesses. Comparing is a risky game, let alone designing one 'the best'. It's just what you look for in a pianist.
Argerich is good for Chopin, indeed, but who else does she play that well? Who else does she play at all?
rachmaninov - I find Kissin quite good, specially for Rachmaninov's stuff, and I haven't heard Lang Lang that much to judge. What do you think about him?
Still, I'll stay with my statement - Franz Liszt is the greatest piano player of all time! Unfortunately I don't own a single recording to prove it
I think kissin is to slow for rachmaninoff. Gilels and lugansky are my favo's for rachmaninoff
berman has the perfect rachmaninoff piano concerto 3 recording!
Yes, I think Gilels is good too. But still, when Rachmaninov comes to question, the pianist I prefer is Sergei Rachmaninov himself (although the recordings are very old). And the third concerto is the best one
yeh, well okay, argerich mite not be the best pianist of all time...of course how can anyone be compared to liszt, bach (woh i wish i could hear him play his own pieces), rachmaninov....has anyone heard recordings of debussy playing his own music? its funny because he totally disregards his own markings haha :lol: obviously he can cos he's debussy and its his compositionfs
I'll listen to the art of Martha Argerich next week in Hamburg
Then I'll tell you about my experience...
Unfortunately nothing from Chopin, but a lot of other nice things

Lars, which day, which location and time in Hamburg? Still tickets available?

there has been told me that rachmaninoff couldn't play his ossia from rach 3 hahahaha
Donnerstag, 02.11.06, 19.30 Uhr
Laeiszhalle, Großer Saal
There are still tickets available, e.g. at ticketonline dot de
Thanks, but we are on the Isle of Ruegen this day, that's too far away for me (I hoped it is Saturday so we could have an intermediate stop on the way back home).
Schade für mich, jedoch wünsche ich Dir einen wunderschönen Argerich-Abend!
That's gotta be b/s. The ossia isn't that difficult, and if he could play the rest of the concerto, he could surely have played the ossia if he wanted to.
hmzz I heard that the ossia needs to be played in the same tempo as the concerto. Most pianist don't do that. I only know that wibi soerjadi does that.
Well, if you play the ossia cadenza, that is the climax of the first movement. If you take the opening of the concerto at the tempo Rachmaninoff took it, then playing the ossia cadenza at the same tempo would probably sound like musical nonsense. (But then again, if you can pull it off in a convincing manner, all the more power to you.)
