Wonderful! And you are also such a great live performer!

This recording reminds me on a CD recording of the Kreisleriana by Wilhelm Kempff I own, similar style, similar quality. Great!

[quote="Setrak"]Schumann, Kreisleriana Op.16,Recorded Live 1981 Setrak setrakian Piano

Recently I prepared and purposed to my friends a "Kreisleriana compilation"
whith the same extracts played by 16 pianists, without telling their names.
My friend (and I too) liked more : Pletnev, Kissin, Margulis, Sokolov, Horowitz (I recording),
then Sofronitzki (preferred by me, as usual in all he plays), Hofmann, Kempff, Cortot, Argerich, Anda then the others (Pollini, Grimaud, Perahia, Perlemuter ).
I don't know if your interpretation win in this contest, but I'm sure it will be classified
among the first 4-5. And it is a live recording, as not all the others.
Your style, to make a comparison, is near to the richness in phrasing and microdinamics
details of Pletnev and Margulis (another pianist extraodinary IMHO), with a conception
very poetic but a little more "concrete", less oniric than these ones . More a point
of wiew from the high than a dispersion IN the story(not a fault or a value,
only an impression).
The robustness of technique in the colour's variety is very near to Sokolov's one, as the general
conception.
In my modest opinion, nearly at the same amazing level of your Beethoven, while the
3rd Chopin's Scherzo seems to me only excellent.

Thank you,
Sandro.

Indeed extremely well played all the way through and amazing live performance! Just whished I was there. Unfortunately, the sound quality is not very good and it sound like it has been first coded to a low quality as 32 or 64 kbps and then after wards recoded as 128 kbps. But the playing was magnific!

The recording is up on the site.

Thank you to all,

It be nice to prepared "Kreisleriana compilation" I think Pletnev, Kissin, Margulis, Sokolov, Horowitz ,Sofronitzki ,Hofmann, Kempff, Cortot, Argerich,Pollini, Grimaud, Perahia, Perlemuter all are in the first class, they deserve to be, and I wish to be the last, for me is not to be number, just I am doing my best in music.

> It be nice to prepared "Kreisleriana compilation"

..that was only a play. But very enjoying and interesting. Without knowing the names (only at the end), one call evaluate each interpretation without preconceived ideas.
And above all one can more easily reflect about the problems of musical interpretation.

I do not agree with the last your consideration. I think there is not a precise quality border between "names" and less famous names. And your example help me in this idea.
No borders, but grey zones.....

Best regards,
Sandro.

Thnaks for another great recording, even though the reording sound is not as good as most of your other posts. I enjoyed it and am waiting to hear the Ginastera. Have you started it yet?
