Strange, isn’t it? I recognize the name so well, but his playing…?
This is the best recording of the song I’ve heard.
I’ve heard from multiple people that Demus was a gigantic prick. Never liked his playing much either, so I have no feelings about his passing.
They say one shouldn’t speak ill of the dead, but a shocking fragment of a masterclass I saw could confirm that statement.
Heard him live once and it wasn’t memorable at all - I prefer Badura-Skoda by far.
My one memory of him really is that a friend raved about a Bach recording he had come across with him back in ca 2003, which he said he “died when he heard”.
I also remember that my reaction when he sent it was about …? however, so maybe it’s not surprising I haven’t looked in to him. But I’ve never heard anyone speak about him since either.
I remember checking out his Schumann series posted to YouTube. Meh… and his toccata made barere’s pulse seem as steady as da Rubinstein
We’re not giving him much of an eulogy…
I will try to listen to something with him tomorrow. Since I recognize the name so well I’m sure he must have left something good.
I don’t think I’ve even listened to any of his solo stuff.
firzt barz I thought it wuz zum rhythmic genzui
den he sudenly remebah da DOUBLE BEAT theory
His Schumann is far from great so I’ve been told. I know him mainly through the recs with dfd. Also a terrible Mozart 88duo CD.
Also he fingered the haydn I’m playing atm
AHAHAHAHA fuckkkkkkk diz precize review

Haha dat literal-minded mofo playin n rolling all da 10ths in da shoe tocc
Dat needs a rewrite in spots
mannnnnn da OBITUARY ZECTION of da SDC
When a famous person dies or when a famous tourist attraction collapses, it always brings about a large amount of hypocrisy. Not on Da SDC though.
Take the Notre-Dame for example. Instead of haven taken care of a good basic fire alarm system and tackle negligence, da Macro is shouting “we will rebuild this togethah in a grand mannah”. Rich dudes cuntribute cash and they collect hundreds of millions. While some of the Paris Métro stations and less-known historic buildings are rotting away and while there is wide-spread decay/detoriation in many French cities…
ahahahah da PEARMOFO tryin to elevate da level of dizcuzzion in diz thread ic
ma only queztion iz
y iz dere ztill no MACRON 88 vid?
cuntzidahrin derez even DIZ zheeyat on da tube
“Believe me, the Republicanz don’t want anothah piano playah in da White House.”
Wait until announces hiz candidazy for da 2020 prezidential erections.
He understands like the rest of us that Notre Dame is a symbol, not just of Paris, but of France. The Paris Metro is a toilet, but it’s not neglected; they are constantly doing works on it, and they’re even adding a bunch of new lines (presumably for the Olympics). And nobody cares about any other French city other than Paris.
