Hailed by The New York Times as quite simply one “of the best pianists in this or any other country,”
The New York Times hailed his Liszt Transcendental Études recording by saying, “Several impressive recordings of Liszt’s Transcendental Etudes prove that these audaciously difficult works are actually playable and triumphantly pianistic. But none make Liszt’s visionary understanding of what the piano could do more palpable and exciting than Russell Sherman’s extraordinary recording.”
suddenly da MTz ‘ztunningly fluid reading’ dun zound zo imprezzive
diz iz sholy one of da most disgraceful threads ever in da SDC history. i rate his FF (0/10) and his mazeppa (-10/10). I wonder how he unleashed happy farmer. Throughout mah life, I experienced some bad sheeyat, but damn da sherman broke all da records. Even sight reading cant be this bad. This is absolutely trashy. Well, good thing that i lizten to diz sheeyat in 2005 because this year iz about to end, so all bad sheeyat suhd be buried. My last comment towardz da unlegendary Sherman is that he should start learning da 88 all evah again. there iz no bettah way torturing ur soul, life, zpirit and earz dan liztening to da sherman’s playing.
Have you guys even heard both his 1973and 1989 recordings?? I have only heard the 1989 version and I love it. I think you guys should give it a chance. I like Sherman because he’s not a middle of the road interpreter, he has something different to say. Plus the man’s insane and he’s a legend at the New England Conservatory. Marc-Andre Hamelin is a disciple of Sherman; they both play repertoire that is full of lots of notes.
