#391

I do have a soft spot for Grieg. Playing a selection of lyric pieces in few months, love playing them.
Andsnes’s ballade is a great rec. He did scare the shit out of me when I had to play the cuncerto in a master class for him and he clapped his hands and goes “now for some Norwegian music” :tired_face:


#392

I happen to love Grieg’s 88 m*zic too, played quite a few of the Lyric Zongz. Little gemz, and so well written for the inztrument.

#397

I think I’d go for Godowsky as well, but there are many excellent pianists who have played it. I have (listed):

Godowsky
Joyce
Rubinstein
Bolet
Farrell
Mustonen
Andsnes

I don’t remember his recording but at least Farrell should be worth taking a look at as well. Like the young Lupu he played like an angel, which I can imagine would suit this.


#398

There’s also a recording of Cor de Groot, heard it once and I remember I liked it a lot.


#399

Mustonen and Grieg :nauseated_face:
Bull in a China shop…


#400

No I don’t believe in that either. Nor Rubinstein - mysticism wasn’t his thing, which I think plays an important role in this work.


#401
