Quote from: Mandryka on August 06, 2022, 07:10:10 PMThe piano was the domestic instrument par excellence in the 19th century and most of the 20th century.
Quote from: (: premont :) on August 07, 2022, 02:09:52 AMThe grand piano was rare except in the upper class, whereas some different kinds of upright pianos were more common in the middle class. And there is no intimacy in Messori's performance.And BTW the music was written before 1730, long time before these noisy pianos became common.
Quote from: Mandryka on October 12, 2022, 11:25:25 PMI know this is what you need like a hole in the head, another Goldberg Variations by a young unknown. However, I think Tianqi Du's pretty good and worth a chance - strongly anti virtuosic, that's why. He's reflective, humble, and poised.(I really like it, it's touched something in me this morning.)

Quote from: (: premont :) on October 24, 2022, 09:33:59 AMI am sad to say that I find Diana Boyles AoF to be one of the most misguided interpretations ever recorded of the work. In that way it is unique.

Quote from: amw on December 30, 2018, 03:57:43 AMThe Barto is not an accurate reflection of the Busoni edition on any level—the notes are closer to the Bach original, the nuances entirely Barto's. Tanski seems to be the only "proper" recording of the Bach/Busoni.
Quote from: Mandryka on December 30, 2018, 04:15:17 AMWell done for making that clearer, when you look carefully at the recording it doesn't say that it's the Bach/Busoni, it says "after the adaption of Ferrucio Busoni", and the section in the booklet about Busoni speaks only of the organ "adaption." I think it's slightly contemptuous of the public that Barto didn't put anything in the booklet to explain what he's done. If you're right the CD is very misleading, there are a couple of reviews on the UK amazon which just assert (as I would have done) that he's playing the Bach/Busoni, and I remember Don Satz, who has like 1,000 different sets of Goldbergs, telling me that it was the Bach/Busoni. Pretty poor show on Barto's part. Sara Davies Buechner has recorded the Bach/Busoni Goldbergs, I expect it's a pretty good performance, I haven't heard it but I remember she did the Bach/Busoni Well Tempered Clavier rather well. https://www.youtube.com/v/3ApC9ziaH44
Quote from: SurprisedByBeauty on December 30, 2018, 04:58:10 AMIt's not on Tzimon Barto that the liner notes are what they are -- except, perhaps, not caring enough to make sure they aren't generic standard notes. That's on the label. But yes, it's really not the Busoni version but for all practical purposes the Barto-version hiding behind the Busoni. That said, I love the recording.
