It wud appear dat da - if a poll wuz made - iz da moz hily REZPECD penizt on diz forum
He fo zhor makez ma top 10 but only juzt, and diz iz fo a couple reazonz
He iz hit n mizz fo moi - and da bewildering amount ov recz out dere mean dat I haf not fully explored all dere iz
Hiz Chopin iz, broadly zpeaking, not az colourful az ma fav Chopiniztz, ezpecially rubato-wize. But zelected repertoire have really imprezzed me lyk da PoloFant etc. and he haf da bezt Ballade 2 evah.
Alzo I feel hiz pozt 1980 recz are a zhadow ov da formah zelf. I know he wuz old and mozt peniztz get mo zheeyat, but zumhow da HO and a few othaz ztill had zum unique gensui in old age
Hiz iz outztanding and one ov ma favz in diz rep
Zcrib6 obviouzly unmatchd
Dvorak conc legendary
Bra 2nd conc legendary tru
Lyk I zay - he iz in ma top 10, but fo many ov u mofoz he iz in yo top 5, n even numbah 1. N I want zum pointahz to rize him up mah rankinz wizout hafin to lizten to every rec evah
Actually wuz imprezzd by hiz zcherzo n march, very undaplayd piece
Probably easier if I list the Richter recs that I think are NOT world class. Much shorter list.
Hahah diz iz one ov ma fav Zcribetz and hiz iz da bezt I’ve heard it played
The only rec I can think of is that weirdly fucked Chopin G major noct from 1950.
Hmmm if I had to show a mofo a vid, juz a quick one datz easy
Az fo juz a in yo face savage zheeyat?
Datz also eazy pick fo me right now
He zhowed zum rezpec to Glazunov, alzo wiz da firzt concerto
I uzed to hate da GLAZ fo fuckin up da ROCKzymph 1 premiere
but he wuz a wikid compoza tru
Im pretty sure I rezpec Richter more than everyone else really.
Now I might not be educated enough to know WHY exactly, many many othah mofoz certainly have their moments
But Tru da fury I guezz. Where az da HO might be worried about hiz bowtie, Richter iz like here: hold my sheeyat
Anyway, I agree with TM on prick 2. Um…definitely his op111, but datz a no brainier right?
prick 7th n 8th zon r juz heartztoppahz, zpecifially zum of tha live recz
tha otha prick zonz
any brotha zon
all rocketz he playd
az well az tha…
Tru, esp da first movement
Wait…so wutz da point of da thread?
Scriabin 5 & Rach from Prague, some zonz, some obscure Liszt. Tru I love him as a person but don’t listen to him so often.
