Quote from: George on April 06, 2007, 06:00:36 AMEtudes: Richter's my favorite here, but he didn't record them all. Ashkenazy has more refinement, but still is intense. Perahia is a bit less intense, but very poetic.
Quote from: rubio on April 08, 2007, 11:04:43 AMWhich discs would you recommend with Richter's Etudes?
Quote from: George on April 08, 2007, 11:54:49 AMI agree, Simon. With that you get the stellar Debussy preludes as well! However, the Praga etudes are spectacular, better than any other recording he's made of them IMO.
Quote from: SimonGodders on April 08, 2007, 11:57:20 AMThe Praga - do you mean the one with the Scriabin? I always found the Chopin on there to be a little sloppy....
Quote from: George on April 08, 2007, 12:01:49 PMThat's the one. In spots, but the Op.25/11, my goodness...worth the price of the disc alone.
Quote from: SimonGodders on April 08, 2007, 12:47:25 PMBut a toss-up between Richter and Cziffra for the top I think...
Quote from: George on April 08, 2007, 12:56:47 PMSo you prefer the BBC disc perf to the Praga? I thought that's what we were discussing.
Quote from: SimonGodders on April 08, 2007, 01:05:29 PMThe Op.25/11 isn't on the BBC Disc, I was just comparing the Richter/Praga Op.25/11 with all the other Op.25/11's I have...
Quote from: rubio on April 08, 2007, 01:16:42 PMThank you for this discussion. I ordered the Praga disc as they tend to go OOP. And if the Richter 25/11 is as good as Cziffra's I really look forward to receiving this disc!
Quote from: George on April 07, 2007, 08:34:15 PMGot that one!I need to revisit...

Quote from: rubio on April 09, 2007, 12:31:20 PMI just listened to Casadesus' studio recording of the Chopin Ballades from 1950, and I liked them a lot!
