Quote from: Mandryka on February 11, 2022, 03:42:46 AMSomeone I know, quite a well known composer, says it's the best Goldberg Variations he's ever heard. I saw him play it in concert. It wasn't the best Goldberg Variations I've ever heard.

I'd be surprised if you didn't find something good to say about it, even if it doesn't turn out to be a favorite. I think he does SOME things you would like. Let's see if I'm wrong. His playing reminds me a bit of Maasaki Suzuki. Perhaps it's a bit pretty at times though. ETA: there's a lot of inventiveness in Rondeau.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 11, 2022, 07:26:13 AMWell maybe, but I've listened to Rübsam, Swiatkiewicz and Booth over the past two days. I'm all Goldberged out.
Quote from: milk on February 11, 2022, 03:33:49 PM I find it harder to approach GBVs with fresh ears than other Bach.
Quote from: Que on February 10, 2022, 11:43:58 PMBelder II was already on my to do list.
Quote from: (: premont :) on February 11, 2022, 04:04:14 PMIs this about the music or the performance?
Quote from: hvbias on August 09, 2021, 08:13:19 AMI haven't really found anything to keep me captivated with the Goldbergs since discovering Andrew Rangell's recording. I've listened to this a couple of times, I'm not sure what to make of it yet. In general it seems a bit drier (less expressive) than David Buechner's.
Quote from: Selig on February 11, 2022, 04:44:13 PMI think the recent one is Belder III
Quote from: milk on February 11, 2022, 06:06:45 PM I've listened to them so many times. Plus, variations seem to get tiresome easily for me. I find the WTC to be the deepest of Bach's non-organ keyboard music; I get less tired of it. GBVs was the first classical music I fell in love with and it got me into classical. But I have to stretch myself to approach it now with a blank slate.
Quote from: milk on February 12, 2022, 07:40:30 AM yes there are so many versions on the market that it's impossible to narrow them down to a handful, maybe ridiculous. I'm on a jag, I feel like I'm hearing the music again and I don't want this one to get lost in the fray. Duration: 01:41:36
Quote from: hvbias on February 12, 2022, 08:20:37 AMThe more I listen to this the more I feel like I share a kinship with Busoni in thinking the Goldbergs need to be cut down. As for the rest of Busoni's alterations I don't think they're that radical, most pianists take plenty of liberties anyway. And making a correction to my post, that was not meant to be dead naming Sara Davis Buechner, I only realized the error after that post and reading her book on Busoni/piano practice. (meant to quote the post not edit the old one)
