Clara Haskil - Ludwigsburg Castle Recital in April, 1953
“This recording contains all the items from a recital given by Clara Haskil at Ludwigsburg Castle in April, 1953. Schumann’s Op. 99 and the encores have never been previously released” … cital-1953

The Melnikov is probably the studio version of what I heard in concert (but extended to four pianos).
Not sure how interesting it will be though.

I was expecting Melnikov to continue his Prok Sonatas cycle in 2018. The first disc is superb.

The Haskil will be a treat - it’s always worthwhile to hear her play unreleased things!

Hopefully the epic Gieseking box from melo and those Lipatti private acetates on Marston.

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?

I posted this already in Youtube section, but it deserves to be here as well, in expecting his new CD:

Islamey from few days ago:

He can be damn good when he is in the mood.
The dude is no fraud

I still haven’t decided what to do with the ticket I’ve got for the 12th of Jan.
Any tapers wanna come to Paris that night and go in my stead? 8)

Personally I would dump the Berezovsky after hearing the Scriabin in that recent recital. My opinion.

Yeah, I’m not going but I can’t resell the ticket (they’ve been selling it at a 30% discount).
I think I’ll give it to one of the Mexican girls.

Whut Mexican girls?

(I prefer Latinas over white chicks because they look more Asian 8) )

hahaha lmfao Is this like guys preferring trannies over men because they look more ‘feminine’?

I have all variety of latinas in my extended social circle:
Mexicans, Columbians, Spanish, Dominican.
The Mexicans are good fun, they like to have a good time so we get along famously.

That’s why the put trannies on TV. To make real women obsolete and end natural human reproduction

Gonna be a brave new world
Only with more trannies

Let moi illustrate

Welcome to the future.

hahaha well at least he kept the finish-on-muh-glasses glasses

man I’d love to date a Mexican :ho: :doc: :zhreddah: :orgy: :orgy: :orgy:
