Quote from: Herman on September 06, 2009, 01:22:38 PMBaffling. Perhaps you're trying to say you like modern dance better than ballet. It's a bit like saying it's too bad Schumann didn't write for flute. Balanchine is arguably the greatest ballet choreographer of the twentieth century. DBT is a beautiful work of his, it's just not from his best years.
Quote from: Mandryka on August 28, 2009, 04:42:11 AMI enjoy Gieseking's recording a lot. In fact, it's probably my favourite Giekeking performance. He never bangs even in the more bouncy pasages, and the lyricism in some of the dances towards the end -- 14 especially -- is beautiful.
Quote from: Herman on September 16, 2009, 04:59:39 AMI have the Cath Collard Davidsbundlertanze too. I got a copy from longtime GMG member Ezodisy.It's a fine version of this piece, just lacking that essential touch of madness IMO, as do most.
Quote from: ccar on September 16, 2009, 03:02:13 PMSome madness (specially if combined with talent and taste) may be a fascinating ingredient. But, as you said, a very rare one.
Quote from: Bulldog on August 28, 2009, 05:51:51 AMMy eight favored versions: Gieseking, Cortot, Backhaus, Schein, Zacharias, Cooper, Kempff and Anda. I pefer Backhaus most; he's entirely wild and unpredictable. For the modern route, Ann Schein on Ivory Classics takes my breath away with her transcendent representation of Eusebius.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 12, 2013, 07:36:31 AMAre you sure the Backhaus recording on Piano Library is genuine? It seems to have only ever been released on Piano Library as far as I can see, I can't find it on LP. I don't know how reputable Piano Library is.It doesn't sound like anything else I've heard from Backhaus, but I'm not a Backhaus expert. far from it.By the way, whoever's playng it's a remarkable performance.
Quote from: Sammy on February 12, 2013, 07:57:11 AMI can't even be sure that you're genuine. It is a wonderful performance, but I wouldn't bet my life that it's Backhaus.
Quote from: Agent Leo K. on February 12, 2013, 12:48:17 PMUchida is my top recording.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 12, 2013, 09:21:27 PMMy own listening to this has focussed recently on a live record by Pollini, from a concert in Salzburg in 1984.
Quote from: Octave on February 12, 2013, 09:44:42 PMIf this is the one I think it is, it is a storied recording. I only know it as a release of the Exclusive label from the ~mid-90s; does anyone know if it's been reissued since? I would like to get a hardcopy of it, but of course I am have no intention of paying $80 for the privilege.[asin]B00008G29S[/asin]
Quote from: val on February 13, 2013, 01:01:08 AMAfter all this years, Geza Anda still remains my favorite. But Karl Engel has here one of his most inspired performances. And there is Gieseking in his version of 1947 with an imagination unique but also a very bad sound.What a pity Yves Nat didn't record this beautiful work.
QuoteMandryka Are there any other Gieseking recordings?
Quote from: val on February 16, 2013, 12:58:28 AMI don't know. But that one is the only I know.I hope that one day Jonathan Biss records this work. With the Fantasiestücke opus 12. It would be a very beautiful CD.
