    My teacher whose name was Sue has a cousin who was related to the man that knew of Brian Bates who played trumpet for the the Sherborne P.O in the 50s the director at the time was Inkle van Platterkopf who was responsible for developing a way of playing tacit in complete silence.

    Both are my favorite pianists.
    For Perahia my best loved performance is his Schumann Fantasie op17, particularly the last movement.
    For Arrau my vote goes to his performance of Liszt Sonata.

    Beethoven studied under Christian Gottlob Neefe, whose mentor was Johann Adam Hiller, who learned the organ with Gottfried August Homilius, who was taught by Johann Sebastian Bach! Talk about six degrees of separation...
