Quote from: George on September 21, 2010, 06:23:51 AMThanks. I hope that she records it. The youtube sound is atrocious.
Quote from: Herman on September 21, 2010, 10:53:27 AMI don't get this hang-up about "sound".

Quote from: Mandryka on September 20, 2010, 11:18:01 PMRichter for me is a bit too smooth in II (both EMI and Prague) -- he makes it all sound a bit too easy. I want to hear a struggle.
Quote from: George on September 21, 2010, 10:56:12 AMIt is the medium by which we experience music. I honestly don't get how you can not be turned off by the sound on that youtube. It's great that you don't, though. I sure wish it didn't bother me.
Quote from: Ten thumbs on September 21, 2010, 10:58:42 AMWithout making any specific recommendations, the following works ought also to be in your collection:Op. 14 Sonata No.2 in F minor (Op. 22 is No.3)Op. 21 Noveletten
Quote from: Mandryka on September 17, 2010, 11:43:27 PMThere are lots of names I haven't heard in Schumann : Schliessmann, Karnavichius, Okashiro (good Sdcriabin I think) , Varjon. It would be nice if you could sell them a bit -- you know, their style, idiosyncrasies . . .
Quote from: Bulldog on September 21, 2010, 03:32:48 PMBurkard Schliessmann - Sort of a combination of Gieseking, Cortot and Moiseiwitch, but in state-of-the-art sound. He fully captures all the tension that's the result of the myriad of dysfunctional personalities involved in Kreisleriana. I think the coupling is the Symphonic Etudes, also superb. If I had to live with only one Schumann piano recording, this is it.
Quote from: ccar on September 21, 2010, 12:16:33 PMMandryka I appreciated your vivid evocation of the struggle between Eusebius and Florestan. And I understand Richter probably takes a more reflexive and mysterious view of this piece than others. Probably there can be some more strongly expressive Florestans. But when Richter assumes Eusebius "the poet speaks" as profoundly as ever. And in some versions (from at least 7 commercially available) Richter is also an unexpectedly strong (almost violent) Florestan – just relisten the fiery contrast between Durchaus energisch and the entering Langsam getragen in Budapest 1980 (Doremi DRH-7786).
Quote from: Herman on September 21, 2010, 12:38:49 PMThe F sharp minor sonata (nr 1) is opus 11 (and it's F sharp minor).The G minor sonata, opus 22, is nr 2.Why change nrs and keys, just to make it more complicated?
Quote from: Ten thumbs on September 22, 2010, 10:16:12 AMThe F minor sonata, opus 14, surely must be nr 2. This is an entirely different work from opus 11 and yes, I do have scores of all three sonatas
Quote from: Drasko on September 22, 2010, 10:38:28 AMAs I understand op.14 was never published as 2nd Sonata. Originally in five movements, Schumann initially dropped both scherzos and published three movement piece under title Concert sans orchestre op.14. Much later he revised the variations, added one of the scherzos and published it as 3rd Sonata but kept original opus number.
Quote from: Mandryka on September 21, 2010, 11:42:15 AMWhat? All of them?
Quote from: Bulldog on September 18, 2010, 09:16:03 AMSorry - it's the Moiseiwitsch cd.[Kreisleriana]
Quote from: Dancing Divertimentian on December 06, 2010, 08:26:34 PMMore excellence from Connoisseur Society. Raim's Schumann recital set is nothing short of amazing:
