    my favourite three: Kempff, Richter, Rubinstein



    I think there are so many great old-time pianists. maybe it is impossible to list every one here.


    is there anyone who likes one or more of the following pianists?

    Katchen, his Brahms collection is my favorite

    Lipatti, his Chopin

    Solomon, his Mozart, Beethoven

    Fisher (Edwin), his 3B

    Gieseking, his Debussy, Ravel

    Cortot, his Chopin

    Francois, his Chopin

    Brendel, his Haydn, Schubert

    Pogorelich, may be not old time, but his Ravel is soooooooooooooooo good!

    You can get to know all of them, ff you optimized the use of your time. For example, stop spamming.

    Where's Hofmann??? And Rachmaninoff??? They were greater than many of these peoples' noses! In fact, I heard once that a reporter once asked Rachmaninoff who he thought the greatest living pianists were. He thought awhile, then said, "Well... there's Hofmann..." then paused awhile longer, "And there's me." He wouldn't speak anymore on the subject. each of them thought the other was better. I voted for Horowitz because Rachmaninoff wasn't here, but now I know that the options can be changed... darn!

    Interesting to see how different it is now. Now Richter always emerges on top.

    This thread appeared to be a fan club for Gould and Perahia nether of whom I like much at all.
