    Yes Mr Ptr
    You are right. This is the best recording of Rachmaninov's Vespers I've ever heard and I've heard a few.
    An incredible piece of music is sounding even more wonderful than normal playing on the best Hi-Fi in the house.
    Music simply doesn't get much better than this.

    Heard Aimard play it live @ Gothenburg Concert Hall in 2007 (about the time this CD was released me thinks), magical recital, played Alban Berg's Piano Sonata and the Apassionata before the interval and the Concord after! One of the most memorable piano recitals I've heard live!

    I was listening on the radio, and they were utterly divine. Unfortunately, the announcer neglected to say what they were called.

    Franz Schubert - Piano Sonata in A Major, D. 959 (Christian Zacharias).

    342702_1_f.jpg

    This disc just came in. Zacharias has a very 'agile' touch, somewhat reminiscent of the way Elisabeth Leonskaja plays these sonatas. However, I would say he delves less into the melancholic aspects of the music and focuses more on structure and dynamics. He has a very brisk and fluid sound, I'm definitely enjoying this .

    I have been listening to two sets of the Scriabin piano sonatas back to back: Ruth Laredo's (Nonesuch) and Igor Zhukov's (Melodiya). I come back to this music time and time again, and it can't help but change, with time and each different interpretation. But the feeling I get now, listening to the two (early 70's) recordings is that Zhukov has more "punch" and it makes for a more dynamic performance.

    I just wanted to thank all of you so much for your heartfelt condolences and thoughts for me and my family. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend my mother's memorial service but I am at least in a position to help with the expenses. Thanks again everyone it was very special for me to come here and see all the posts. If I missed a like on a post so you knew I had seen it I apologize.
