RE: Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No 1....Martha Argerich
I've been working on getting this back to where I used to have it. Best part starts at 4:08. (I need to let my hair grow REALLY long to play it right Big Grin )
(Our poor neighbors Sad )
BTW, it's played too fast ... the Hungarian folk song is lost at this speed.



Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Do you play the piano? I'd love to hear you play. Grow your hair long super fast and play that damned piano for us Bucky.Big Grin

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I'm a classical pianist and I have idolized her all my life. I attend the Jacobs School of Music and studied abroad in Vienna last fall, where heard her perform the Schumann Piano Concerto. Spectacular. Got to meet her too, she's fiery. This is perhaps the most famous recording of Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 and the Tchaikovsky international piano competition can't help but to compare the competitor's performance of the concerto to hers. I would recommend also listening to her performance of Ravel Piano Concerto in G. This is a new one!

Guys. Art Tatum.

Hmmm... Art Tatum was indeed awesome, but so is Argerich. I'm not sure how you could compare them when the styles are so different. It's like comparing Andres Segovia and Joe Pass and Jimi Hendrix. Who was better? Beats me.

I've been a huge fan of classical piano ever since college. I play the piano and am always inspired by pianists like this.

Art improvised. Not comparing styles. It is very different when one must read and another can compose on the fly.

Celebrated drummer, Bill Bruford, mentioned a trumpet player who he hired for his first album. The guy was a classic player and demanded the music be written out. He could not improvise a solo. I believe Allan Holdsworth wrote the solo for him.

Just a difference. I play both classic and jazz music. I hold Art in higher esteem. Just as I do Charlie Parker. Because they composed on the spot. With Parker, often at 220 bpm.

Just mentioning Art because I like him to be remembered. Smile

No worries. I love Tatum, and Charlie Parker too. Parker in the late 1940s was like a bottomless fountain of melody. They could do 5 or 6 takes of the same tune, and he would play a completely different (and completely awesome) solo on each take. I've heard many great improvisers, but none better than Charlie Parker.
