imephisto walz: he brakes a string haha
Not that it matters. I've listened to several of his recordings at the Sultanov site but this was my first hearing of this. The finish and beauty of his playing is unbelievable, he never makes an ugly sound. I didn't even hear the string break. And of course his technique is flawless. I think one of the things about him that's notable is that while his technique is effortless (or seems to be) he never uses it just to show off, although the playing is "flashy" with all the allure of a virtuoso technique he isn't showing off, he is there for the music. In this respect he reminds me of another brilliant pianist who died too soon, William Kapell.
I'll be listening to more Sultanov and will post my impressions here...
