Performer: Great Pianists of the Twentieth Century. Audio CD (October 26, 1999). Sadly, this is not the case with the Great Pianists reissue, all the more surprising because Phillips is a well regarded Classical label, whereas BMG (formerly RCA) has long been thought of as a dinosaur. The documentation in this series is slipshod and often plain inaccurate. On the Paderewski set, the performance of Liszt's La Leggierezza, is not actually by Paderewski.

Discussion in 'Pianists' started by BrokenFingers, Jun 21, 2010. In fact, Hofmann was a great advocate of staying true to the composer's intentions, devoting many pages to the subject in his books on piano playing. I don't see anything contradictory to Chopin's intentions(Of course, I don't know his intentions!) and certainly nothing drearily predictable in this recording, so I don't know maybe you could tell me what bothers you about it. I do agree, though, that many pianists from this era receive praise that is somewhat based on the fact that they are old/legendary. Funny, I remember his recording of this from the Golden Jubilee album as being more "presentable" so I hope this isn't the same one. Here, he sounds a bit rambling and unsure in places. Still, what color and control!
Josef Lhevinne Sadly, his complete commercial recordings fit on one CD. A marvel to listen to. Beautifully rounded sound, rhythmic solidity, with grace and nobility. Dinu Lipatti One of my all-time favourite pianists, whose precision and ability to breathe life into crisply defined musical form is unparalleled. Radu Lupu I heard this legend in Lucerne and he was like the reincarnation of Lipatti and Haskil (he studied with Lipatti’s teacher). Earl Wild One of the greatest pianists who somehow never got the reputation he deserved. A tremendous technician with a wonderfully polished sound and a Romantic temperament.

Classical and Baroque periods of music history definitely increased the popularity of the piano and almost every genre of music in today’s culture also uses it!

It is also an instrument that once learned, makes it easier to learn other instruments and is popular among young music students. This list features the all time greatest piano players, includin, Frédéric Chopin, Franz Liszt, and Sergei Rachmaninoff.
