Quote from: Holden on March 29, 2008, 03:55:03 PMThe Tragedy is that I don't have a copy of what I believe is the most coherently conceived recording of this work - Claudio Arrau on Philips from the 1970s(?).
Quote from: Holden on March 29, 2008, 03:55:03 PMUgorski's is the worst recording of any piano piece I've ever heard.
Quote from: Sean on March 29, 2008, 07:11:27 PMAlong with Goldberg, and perhaps Strauss's Don Quixote it's the greatest set of variations.
Quote from: Todd on March 29, 2008, 05:52:06 PMWhen it comes to the Diabellis, I often prefer a more interventionist approach. I can't quite explain why, but when a pianist obviously tinkers around with the tempi (especially) and dynamics (less so), I often enjoy the results, though not always. Perhaps that's why unlike Holden I find Piotr Anderszewski very enjoyable. Olli Mustonen is at least as interventionist, though he tends toward fast tempi and some repeat omissions, and I like him even more!
Quote from: Brian on March 29, 2008, 07:38:03 PMReally now? Where can I find it? Since your piano recommendations are always so well-considered and often spot-on, I'd rather like to hear "the worst recording ever". Is it so bad I might derive a perverse pleasure from it, or ... is it just bad?Beethoven Op 111
Quote from: fl.traverso on March 30, 2008, 02:31:51 AMGive me a fortepiano recording anyday! Paul Komen comes to mind.
Quote from: Holden on March 30, 2008, 12:51:59 AMI try to think things out before I post

Quote from: Todd on March 30, 2008, 06:37:59 AMArkiv has it as part of their ArkivCD program. They also have his Op 111, which stretches out to almost 40 minutes. Perhaps that hints at why Holden has a low opinion of Ugorski's Diabellis.
Quote from: Wanderer on March 29, 2008, 10:48:29 PMThis thread reminds me, I've been wanting to acquire Demidenko's recording for quite a long time. Anyone here heard it? Reviews have been most favourable.
Quote from: Sforzando on March 30, 2008, 06:38:01 PMDon't give me a fortepiano anyday! (Unless the fortepianist shows the musicality of the great pianists of the past.)
Quote from: fl.traverso on March 31, 2008, 03:43:04 AMOh give me a fortepiano recording anyday! And rest assured that Komen has more musicality to spare than your generic "great pianist of the past"! Those interested can check out Edmund Batterby's double (modern steinway vs. Graf fp) recordingon Naxos.
