Yes I posted this earlier in the thread.

Nobody acknowledged it at all.

 

It is in fact awesome as well.

that is the problem with having concentrated all discussions about classical in this single 80-page thread. But it is good to see there are other headfiers who like modern and contemporary classical

Yes and yes.

 

I've considered starting a thread dedicated to modern and contemporary material but the lack of enthusiasm toward that sort of thing on this thread has discouraged me from doing so.

Truly remarkable performance of Le Mer 

conducted by a tragic figure of the 20th century.

 

Recorded sound is not the best but it's worth it.

Maybe it could bring some interesting people out of the woodwork...:smile:

It is the music that counts, not the degree of visual distraction..

 

Just sayin :wink_face: 

ha ha - conductor as dictator!

Talking about piano, I just recently discovered Mr. Perahia.
He is the one playing at Immortal Beloved movie while Gary Oldman makes some funny faces.

For Autumn last year BBC Radio 3 invited Peter Donohoe to do a series entitled "Fifty Great Pianists". Clicking on the HERE on this blog page of his opens a pdf file containing some of his thoughts behind his choices :

Included is a list of the selections he made as well as a number of those he would have liked to include...

I recently bought the big black Perahia box (because it was just insanely cheap over at importcds.com) and I'm already finding it a more rewarding experience than the Rubinstein box (sorry, Arthur).

I have both of those and they are both amazing.
