byron janis is 83

heard it on the radio and i know some of you mofos like him. so there!

damn… he is still teaching in MSM?

no idea, they just said he was 83 today, and talked about his arthritis and then played him performing somebody’s blue danube arrangement which was pretty gay! (the piece, not the playing). i heard a nice chopin 1st ballade by him the other day on radio too.

Good pianist, strange mofo.

I like his playing, haven’t heard more than a few cds worth though. One of the best Rach 1’s (both versions) for sure.

he has a pretty fantastic totentanz also
