Cziffra stereo as a set, individual ones by Horowitz.

The greatest single performance of a Hungarian Rhapsody is by Bugs Bunny.

Randomly, if we had to assemble a compilation of different pianists playing the whole set (like so), which ones need to be in there?

For me:

6 Early Argerich
9 Gilels
10 Freire
12 Barere
13 Busoni
15 Volodos / Horowitz

Spanish Rhapsody: Barere

Wild on 4, Kocsis on 5, 3 did gekic do this good? 1 Cziffra

…I’m usually good at this, but I honestly don’t remember which recs I prefer of these. The only ones I’m reasonably confident in are:

8. Cziffra
13. Horowitz
17. Richter
Spanish: Hough

My first port of call for any others would always be Cziffra, but I know he wouldn’t win all of them.

Agree with most of the above. Would add Cliburn in n.12

not ma fav perf ov diz piece but az alwayz da PLATE bringah a gensui unique approach

How has the oragemofo not tubed any of these sheeyatz!

I think it’s Cliburn for me as well, but that’s maybe the Rhapsody with toughest competition of all. Loads of pianists have played it very well indeed.

10, 11, 12 for me
After listening to dis CORPZE in his prime, one may change opinion about him having lack of tech/precision


Chris Brown - if only because the joke had to be made.
