ok I am going to be the asshole here and say that Berezovsky would be a better pianist still if he stopped eating so many buttered croissants.
The Melnikov is sure to be unlistenable.
The grandiloquence of the Tiempo title and its story make me feel dismissive.
Damn Santa didn’t hang around for long over here.
It’s certainly a great range of piano recordings, and the good news is they’re still being made. The practice of classical pianism is a live and well when you see all the sold out halls and concerts everywhere.
I have secretly been hoping for a complete Hambourg survey from APR for several years, so seeing this compilation disc is a bit of a mixed blessing, but I’m looking forward to it nonetheless. The transfers will undoubtedly be better than what I have, and he’s one of the most wacky pianists I’ve encountered. He never really hits the mark, but he’s always lots of fun to listen to.
Berezovsky is off my list since many years ago, but Tiempo will be a little fun too. Didn’t Pollini promise to retire?
