Quote from: George on April 08, 2007, 04:09:25 PMSweet! I got these last night! No, It's Moravec.
Quote from: Poetdante on April 11, 2007, 07:38:11 AMMoravec's Nocturne is my best choice~!You have a really good picture.
QuoteMy favorite piece of Chopin is Prelude op.28Sokolov, Pollini, Cortot, Francois, Kissin - Great performances.I've heard Stephen Vladar's playing recently, that was not bad.
Quote from: George on April 11, 2007, 08:31:41 AMHow do you like the Francois set, if you have it?
Quote from: Poetdante on April 11, 2007, 09:03:08 AMCortot is a 'MASTER', isn't it?
Quote from: George on April 09, 2007, 03:29:49 PMFunny, I bought a Pearl Casadesus CD recently, but it wasn't that one. Mine has Beethoven, Haydn and Scarlatti. I haven't opened yet.Can anyone report on his Chopin?
Quote from: orbital on April 11, 2007, 02:04:54 PMI have no Casadesus CD's but I will be watching this : http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Casadesus_First_Family_of_the_Piano/70023990?trkid=90529DVD next week. I will report back if you are interested.
Quote from: rubio on April 22, 2007, 08:49:38 AMSo what is the best recording of "Introduction and Polonaise brillante for cello & piano in C major, Op. 3"? I have just heard Argerich/Rostropovich which was really good. Any other alternatives?
Quote from: Michel on May 01, 2007, 12:04:41 PMFor anyone who actually wants to know about Chopin, I would suggest speaking to Herman, who no longers posts here, for he is an expert.Sidoze may also be able to help, as he is great too.
Quote from: rubio on May 01, 2007, 12:00:40 PMI wonder what do you think about the Ballades played by Cortot? Should I sample them? And if so, which recording/CD?
Quote from: George on May 01, 2007, 12:42:11 PMIf they came out on Naxos, that's where I'd get them from. MDT online has some Cortot on Naxos, last I checked. I own the Preludes and the Waltzes, but would need to hear them again before giving an informed opinion on them. BTW, who else do you have in the Ballades?
Quote from: rubio on May 01, 2007, 01:02:00 PMSo far, I have Perahia, Cziffra, Casadesus and Moiseiwitsch (Appian) + different individual recordings spreaded around. I definately like the Perahia recording best, but some aspects of the Cziffra and Casadesus are also exciting. I see that they have the below 1929 set of the Ballades at MDT, but I know he re-recorded them in 1933 (so I wonder which is the best).
Quote from: Steve on May 01, 2007, 01:55:46 PMHow much of the Chopin ouevre did Cziffra record?
