She has been a completely unknown pianist in Korea. I hear a Baroque orchestra in this performance of a phenomenal young pianist.

Very nice! lol...I hate that stupid finger-switching technique. This is why I don't play Scarlatti. I listened to her Chopin also. She has a very strange way of observing the Chopin rubato - you can tell that it's important to her to stay more or less in tempo, but she has wild surges, both in tempo and in dynamics. And she also has a thing for adding extra bass notes when she feels the written notes aren't powerful enough! :lol: But she is a very expressive pianist, and I enjoyed listening to her. Her tempo on 10/4 was simply breakneck, pushing Richter, so it's no surprise she missed a few notes!

haha, do you do that too? :lol: I think she did it on both 10/3 and 10/10.

Yes, I do it too. But only if I've heard one of the pros do it. Lang Lang does it in the 27/2 video and de Larrocha does it all over in Granados' music. Once I've heard it, I can't go back to playing it in the normal way. I just love all that bass.

After I read your response, I listened to her some Chopin, too. (Before that I hadn't.) I don't like her Chopin... Her emotion is too much, quite unrestrained. I think that leads to that strange rubato. It is a pity that I cannot find that subtle and refined way from that Scarlatti there.

Anyway I listened to that Scarlatti a lot of time and got never bored. I just love that performance! I found her La Valse (Ravel), too and my jaw dropped. I never saw such a crazy power and technique. I don't know Rach well, but her Rach sounds much better than her Chopin. More subtle, more natural, more colorful. I read somewhere her next program is Bach's WTC. (The current or last one was whole cycles of Rach's Etudes-Tableaux and Chopin's Etudes on a single evening. I'm wondering how the young and thin girls like her or Alice Sara Ott (who played all the Etudes d'execition transcendante plus Waldstein sonata in a recital) have the stamina to play such a big program :?

I had heard Friedrich Gulda adding some notes playing Mozart. He even changed the rhythm into a jazz style :lol:
Actually I'm interested rather in pianists who simplify the original music through leaving out some notes, because I'm the member of SPPC :lol: Volodos does it. I haven't confirm that myself from hearing, but he said in a recent interview (after the recital in Wiener Musikverein Saal) that he leaves out many notes not only in concerts but also in the CD, "like all the professional pianists". Is this a truth? :o I mean, do many pros really do that? Anyway encouraged(? :lol: ) by it I started a piece in which I must leave out several notes :roll:

Very interesting :!: As another member of the SPPC, I am very encouraged by that :wink:. In fact, I have done it a few times on some Chopin mazurkas but did not mention it (and no one caught it). I'm also doing it on a Mompou piece right now - these guys had large hands - didn't they know who may be playing their music one day? :lol:


p.s. Happy Birthday, Samuel Barber (I just had to say that somewhere today)
