    I'll start with...Richard Clayderman.

    And now I have to back it up...Okay, I've read somewhere that he brought piano playing to the masses, and some people learned to play the piano by listening to Clayderman. Well that's all good...until you start looking for some music. I find his style too monotonous, repetitive, boring, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz................Hey. Nothing wrong with playing Gounod in sixths, changing the rhythm, and adding some percussion, but if you play the first four measures over and over and over again, it's gonna annoy people.

    Lightbulb hmm

    Atleast he's not playing Mahler in tritones

    I cannot say she is a bad player, but I think Du Pre was an overrated 'cellist. Yes, she did popularise the Elgar 'cello concerto, and I'm glad she did. Now there is practically a 'cellist on every street corner playing the Elgar . But her tone seems rather harsh to my ears. As though she trying to set the 'cello on fire through friction burns
    Also, jazz saxophonists who play classical. They never have the right tone.

    Du Près is for me best cellist ever...such a natural and emotional tone, the music lives,....and I felt also in love with the Elgar because of her...

    I don't like Cziffra or Hamelin...you only hear finger, superb technique yes, but I cannot hear the "music"...

    Haa. Clyderman, it's funny. I didn't know you can even mention him in a classical music forum. How about Yani ?

    Sarah Chang, BLECH, I don't get it. So not musical, so boring so passionless, even when she's beating up her violin going for that enormous sound.

    Maxim Vengerov. I only recently became so fed up with him. It was his Saint Saens no 3 recording. UGH, what the hell went wrong there? He's abused his instrument to the point it can hardly produce a nice ringing tone without cracking in the most horrid places and didn't anyone tell him this is a juicy bit of lyrical genius not the Shostakovich? HORRID player.

    Sting. I'll not list the reasons why; suffice it to say, everything about him.

    But what a huge ammount of music she has produced prior to running away...

    I've seen her live doing Prok's 3rd, and counts as one of the most exciting experiences in my short life.

    After watching Lang Lang taking a master class with Barenboim, on the Appassionata, I think I won't like Lang Lang at all. To the point that I've never bothered purchasing his recordings (not even downloading them for free).

    Actually there is one musician that makes me want to gag and that is *Yawni*(Yanni). What he delves in is pure and smarmy unctuousness - YECH!!!!!!!

    Nigel Kennedy..?!?

    What's with the weird edgy look? And why does he have to add stupid little eccentric ornaments to Vivaldi's music to make it sound original? If you don't like the good old stuff, just play modern stuff.

    If you don't like the good old stuff being played as modern stuff, just skip it.
