Quote from: Todd on April 20, 2019, 05:26:35 AMI should note that of the specific names you mentioned, I've heard Hamelin (and may again next season) and Moog in person, and both were simply remarkable. Hamelin was ill and still delivered a technically remarkable Gaspard, and Moog was unnervingly poised, playing with an imposing efficiency and a volume where his mezzo-forte was forte and his forte was fortissimo, all without a hint of edge, and all under perfect control at all times. On a Steinway B. His recital was the only one where the loudness became uncomfortable. Only Behzod Abduraimov has compared in that regard, and then only fleetingly. (Not coincidentally, both pianists played a lot of Liszt in their recitals.)Hearing Volodos in person is a bucket list thing. I can actually see travelling great distances to hear him in person.
