Did you know about this pianist?
Raymond Trouard is my new discovery.
Listen to this. How sublime is his playing! Amazing pianist and definitely overlooked!

I got the idea from that "pianist knockout" thread that was posted recently, so I hope this isn't too similar for people to respond to. Anyway...
Make a list- who do you *personally* feel are the most overrated and underrated pianists to have recorded music?

I am a fan of French pianist Cécile Ousset and for a long time I have been looking for video footage of her. I found her playing Prokofiev's 3rd piano concerto on YouTube, but that's it. Along the way, I learned that the BBC made a documentary about her for their Omnibus series and released it...
So while listening to Beethoven's piano concerto No. 2 In B - Flat 3rd Movement I realized it sounds a little familiar to Mozart's Piano Concerto K. 482 In E Flat Major 3rd Movement. Especially the first notes being played :lol: .

A friend of mine who is a pianist as well just started a new blog. I've looked into it and thought it's still quite at the beginning I found her first post very interesting indeed, on a topic which today in my point of view is badly needed. I thought I would share it here because she...
I saw once on the TV a wonderful Documentary of Gyorgy Sebok which took place at Ernen, but I can't seem to find it anywhere....Does somebody know where I can find it? I'm really very much interested!

Is anyone familiar with the piano piece played in this video, , and know if it's based on or similar to any song by a famous pianist? I'm not asking where the entire song is from, I'm asking about the piano part.
Ervin Nyiregyhazi was a romantic style composer and pianist whose work is little known and, in my belief, the compositions are worthy of performances and recordings. I've set up a playlist at YouTube for all the recordings of Nyiregyhazi's music there which I have been able to...

I recently saw the BBC documentary "Imagine Being a Concert Pianist" and there are a few excerpts in there which are very haunting but unidentified. So I am just curious if anybody here can identify them. This will help me sleep at night. :-D
