Da 🍽 learns a classic Chop noct

His Hoff/Rach wannabe modernist phrasing always sounds unnatural and stiff imho.

Pretty wikid playing here tho, sounds like he is fuckin around - I admire it but also consider it sum whut wtf and “cult”

Not piggo level of cult tho :wim:

Idk. His playing after 2006 mostly turns me off.
Certainly more mannered tho.

Pletnev was always a little strange. Somehow his eccentric stance over last several years doesn’t seem like a false posture to me even when I am waaaay out of sympathy with it. I think partly because he still a real pianist underneath it.

Tis the sort of thing I can lose myself in for 6 minutes no issue. Couldn’t take a full rectal of it. A full rectal of chop nocts would alzo be to blame. :ghey:

Nah. I didn’t dislike it, but it also didn’t do much for me.

I’m definitely in to the Nocturnes however if that’s the question. I was even toying with the idea of tubing a series of them just now this weekend, with standout performances from the past 100 years, but I think I decided against it in the end.

Yeah that comes across here to me. This isn’t really the kind of loose, whorey and ultra melancholic interp I like in the middle section. I always go w/ Tipo. I like the '05 live Ivo too. Pianists always play that section too quickly

Pretty self-indulgent, mannered, over-the-top rubato IMO. A bit like Hofmann could play sometimes in his last period, out of boredom. Still, a great pianist with his own sound.

I still think this is unequalled in 62/2

Vlad is one of the 3 or 4 most artistically intelligent people I know. We often have different priorities or preferences as well, but not once can I think of an occasion where I haven’t thought he’s had a point with what he says. It’s just that with him what it’s all about is artistic expression, and he grasps, connects with and can make sense of even the most fine-grained and esoteric emotions and thought processes put in to a performance. With that level of musicality where it’s at is the Pletnevs, the Pogorelichs etc in the music world, whereas listening to a ziff rhapsody is just boring.
