Sarah, that recording is easily to buy, but someone has uploaded that on YT (which I've just found):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZcuKyaBk2o

Thank you very much for the link, Hye-Jin! I really appreciate it. I just listened to the first movement of the concerto- Limpatti makes it come alive! He plays it so sensitively, and I love how the interactions between the orchestra and soloist are seamless. I'm off to listen to the other two movements. :wink:

Thanks, Avguste, for Katz's rendition of the Schumann concerto. I listened to it today. He is an amazing young talent!

It's my great pleasure, Sarah! I really LOVE that recording. Some people mention the Michelangeli's as the best recording of that concerto, too (I mean, among the "historical" or "legendary" recordings :wink: ). I came by that CD, too, but already forgotten how it was, because I already fell in love with Lipatti's :)

I am surprised that nobody noticed Rami's reply earlier in this thread. His version is honestly one of the best renditions I have ever heard, and I have heard quite a few!
Rami is a world famous pianist who I am happy to have aboard and we could probably have a very interesting discussion of this piece with him as he knows it inside out. I promise, he does not bite ;). Have you listened to it?

I don't think that I had listened to it before, so I listened to it this morning. Really beautiful performance, from a slightly different perspective than I've heard before - very vigorous. It would be interesting and informative to hear what he has to say about the concerto.

Whew, I'm glad. :wink:

Thanks very much, Robert, for the good words.
I've been busy writing my piano fingering book...
Best regards,
Rami

I would gladly participate in a discussion about the piece, but there's got to be one going on...
In the meantime, here is a little funny story from a concert with Barenboim and Mehta doing the Schumann concerto with the Israel Philharmonic:
Mehta, as he does often, walks on stage waving his hands for the orchestra to start before even stepping on the podium, thus taking Barenboim by surprise, as the concerto starts with just one orchestral "chord" before the piano solo.
Comes 2nd movement, which starts with 4 notes piano solo before the orchestra follows with 4 notes, Barenboim takes his time throwing off Mehta's attention, making believe he's wiping his hands with a handkerchief and then in "retaliation" hardly puts down the handkerchief and starts the 2nd movement without any warning, which caused Mehta to jump out of his skin to signal the orchestra in time... Lucky for Mehta, the orchestra doesn't really need a conductor to know when to come in...
Regards,
Rami

That is priceless :lol:

I suppose these two are old pals and used to pulling each other's leg. And especially when playing on home turf they can get away with anything. I'd love to have been there.

I suppose your assumptions are right.
I also suppose that it could have been in LA or NY, just as well.

Rami

Thank you for sharing this delightful story! I would have loved to have been there for that hilarious interchange. :D

For some reason, I'm having trouble getting my postings to show up... this is the fourth time I've submitted this comment.

That is hilarious...sounds like Barenboim took a page out of Victor Borge's book... :lol:
