    Oh hell yes!

    Gary Graffman's sound can be heard in Lang Lang's technique, since he taught him at the Curtis Institute. This method, among other things, is the aspect which attracts me most to Graffman's playing, and regardless of what you think of Lang Lang (I'm sympathetic, minus the Liberace-like gestures), is what I hear in Lang Lang as well. This is a thing more known to the Chinese, which is "chi energy."

    In Graffman, I hear a tremedous amount of 'chi' energy in the way he attacks the piano. This was my first vinyl exposure to Graffman, and I've had to wait for this "Complete RCA and Columbia Albums" 24-CD box set to get this recording, my favorite. He sounds so modern, and is perfect for Prokofiev.

    Rock and rolling, pants-leg-flapping virtuosity! Play it LOUD!

    this choir is incredibly precise

    Cherubini is VERY GOOD all around composer. He isn't participating a lot to our presentations and this is unfair for such a great personality of the music. I hope to see more of him. Bravo for this post!

    Listening to this would he have been better than Mahler or/and Bruckner. Who knows? But a super version of the works
