haha grynyuk must’ve run out of coke money again. :gav:

I know Sasha Moutouzkine–terrific pianist.

i remember seeing moutouzkine do probably the most furious corigliano etude fantasy ever. dude has a lot of power in his touch. got a little reckless, but it was fun to listen to.

haha but this is the wrong grynyuk :stuck_out_tongue:

oh really, I just assumed Sasha was short for Oleksandr.
or are there two sasha grynyuks?

Sasha is short of Alexander. They’re talking about Moutouzkhine, who I also really like. He has some stuff from the 2004 or 2006 e-comp that are really good. Also there is a La Valse on youtube of him that is very good as well.

Dmitri’s in this eh? I went to CIM when he was there, funny guy.

Ridiculous technique.

Probably one of the fastest I’ve heard.

Babayan students rock :ho:
