...I'm pretty positive I'd also find a way to smuggle in op.95....

Sorry, it was not meant to imply that. :) And given that I'm a cruel man, it's only fair that I allow only one recording per work. :D

I thought it mightn't. However, the wording of your initial post doesn't exclude that possible interpretation if one were inclined towards it (did you really think we weren't going to exploit every loophole in order to get as many recordings as possible on the island?).  0:)

Cruel does not begin to describe you, vile sir!

Vile he may be, but he does kindly leave his pronouncements open to interpretation.   8)

Tut-tut, lawyers weren't those originally concerned with definitions and loopholes, nor necessarily the most qualified to address such issues. ;)

Oh, do you mean those mathematicians who don't need waste paper baskets?

Yes. Loopholes are our specialty.  $:)


...concerned with definitions and loopholes...

(See the Emil Gilels thread. >:D)

You mean something like this?

"Gilels = Genius. That is all."


No loophole out of this one.  0:)

For the present, and despite my ingenious(!??) attempt to call upon noble ancestors Socrates and apprentice-of-Socrates, supreme masters of loopholes and definitions, respectively, I must admit my appeal to authority has been cleverly foiled. $:)


(More off-topic yet: I have a very close friend studying Law in Athens, Wanderer!

Rather, two of them - but the latter does not really care for the discipline and only chose it for bragging rights, leading to my eventually being called to deliver a most satisfying "I told you so" concerning the wisdom of that decision. ;D)


Now let me end this digression, as well, before I risk creating yet another one out of acquired habit! :o ;)

I should without doubt bring the 32 with me to the desert island. And I would take the Kempff mono or the Backhaus stereo, probably the former - chosen among about 45 sets.

My aquaintance with the 16 is rather new, - I decided half a year ago to investigate them more throughly, and for that reason I acquired all in all 16 different complete sets. I am not sure, that I at the moment would be able to choose between them, even if the Vegh stereo is a strong contender by now.

It's better to act today than to regret tomorrow.
