    Of Chopin performances, I'm only familiarized with Cherkassky, Richter, Zimmerman, Arrau, Pires, Horowitz and Rubinstein. Of the ones mentioned above, I pretty much prefer Cherkassky, unpopular as it may be. I really enjoy his colouring and refined tone, also tempo and gestures are never...

    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? Please avoid discussion of...

    I found a few minutes of Alexander Siloti (1863-1945) on a Pearl CD of a few bits and pieces by Arthur Friedheim (1859-1932). Both of these were pupils of Liszt and both were highly regarded pianists of the early C20th, but Friedheim recorded very few commercial recordings and Siloti recorded...

    Watching a documentary about Yudina on youtube, this thread idea came quite naturally. The title pretty much says it: who would you choose, if you were to focus on the recordings made by only 5 or 10 different pianists? And based on reasons such as their recorded repertoire, playing style...

    Say you have tickets for a full season of piano concerts at you local auditorium. Imagine that for every concert the pianists play the same pieces, on the same piano, tuned the exact same way and placed at the same position on the stage.

    Any pianists and/or anime music fans heard of this man? He's one of the best Japanese pianists in the world, and whenever he's not playing classical music, he makes supervirtuoso arrangements of anime music. Morishita specializes in Alkan, and is probably the best Alkan pianist I've ever heard...

    I've recently added to my collection recordings by the late Annie Fischer, the Hungarian pianist who in my opinion was one of the really great pianists of the last century. How do others feel about her and what recordings can you recommend?

    Based on comments from this forum I've ranked "the best" (or favorite) pianists for each composer. As a newcomer I'd like your help in discovering the greatest pianists and their recordings. Let's have some fun! Copy my list, then modify it as you see fit. Enter as few or as many pianists and...

    Hello, For awhile I've found myself looking through the forums on this site as a guest, as I've recently been trying to recall a particular pianist's name and have struggled immensely to do so. He's previously been one of my go-to performers for modern performances of Liszt piano works on...

    Just to put out there, a beautiful recording of a live concert with Joachim Achucarro at 8o odd years of age... Full concert and then three biggies for encores, all such pure music, rare in these times of flying fingers and empty hearted playing ... This took place at Accademia Musicale...
