Whatever the outcome of the 'controversy' this is an amazing piece. I recently attended a concert by John Lill (UK's best pianist?) when he played this for his finale and blew the audience away. I thought the Steinway was going to bounce off the stage!

I would have liked a little more made of the climaxes in the first part, where the RH and LH start far apart and then move towards each other. These sound just a bit too casually tossed off and could perhaps make more of an impact.


Chris,

I've forwarded your comments to Martha Argerich. :wink:

She promised me she'll try to play the piece better next time. :D

Hihihihihi, just keeeeding. :P

Ah great, thanks ! :D
It is important she knows that I don't always agree with her interpretations. Technically she's ok though (sure she'll like that compliment from PS's most feared critic :lol: )

When you are at it already with Martha, tell her about the wrong note she play in the Chopin prelude no.16 (bass note in the first couple of bars).

Well, possible. But she would need to re-record some stuff first ;).

8) In bar 5 a 6, she plays F on the lowest key while it should be the even lower B-flat. But someone, she recovers in bar 7 from this mistake and from there, nothing is wrong. I noticed this when I studied the prelude years ago. For sure, she must know this herself as it is not easy to hear so probably, she thought she would get away with it ;).
