    Horowitz and Richter surely must be playing live somewhere.

    So did your friend meet her? And did you?

    George don't you think you should get to know her face-to-face first? ;)


    Same here. I also have the piece with Argerich and then hubby Dutoit, but I think I prefer the Grimaud/Boulez just a bit more.

    I would, if she'd only answer my emails!

    I have both, but haven't played them in ages. The last version I listened to is Géza Anda's interpretation with Ferenc Fricsay/Radio Symphony Orchestra Berlin, but that was also a long time ago.

    One had to be careful with the wolves prowling around the room.

    All American (Fiedler/Gershwin) music while watching the U.S. soccer team. The disc finished in the second minute of additional time. Portugal scored a tying goal two minutes later. Should have put it on repeat.

    I know you were dazzled by her eyes, her smile, but what about her hands? Artistic, pianistic, etc?

    One doesn't grip too tightly for fear of a career changing injury.

    (I actually felt that way when shaking the hand of a somewhat elderly John Lewis a number of years ago.)

    What a gentle and charming person. Thank you for this interesting video. Listening to her Liszt b-minor Sonata on YT.

    Yeah - in the 1980's I heard the MJQ in concert twice, and got to go backstage (and meet all 4) on one occasion. I was a huge fan, and as usual for me in such situations, had absolutely nothing to say except, "I like your music."

    It was at the 92nd St. Y. The band members said they liked it, because it was as large a hall as they could play without amplification.

    My wife loves Milt Jackson. On the subject of meeting musicians & songwriters, I have met a number here in daily life, away from musical situations, and all were gracious and easy to talk to.

    I think they are quite good. I have those recordings in my Nielsen collection ...

    Can anyone recommend me a good Chopin set, preferably on period instruments? By "good" I mean that it covers most of his works/genres, and that it has decent sound quality.

    Specifically, I'm looking for nocturnos right now, but I would like to explore his other works as well. Thanks.

    I noticed that you're in Europe. I don't know if you speak/read German; if you do, this German-language site might interest you: http://www.alte-musik-forum.de/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=111

    Not period instruments, but complete, in very good sound and excellent performances. And only $40.
