hahahahah, thanks

gotta love the pathetique....this work was truly revolutionary...think about how damn negative the emotion is compared to other music of that time


beethoven was indeed the purveyor of romanticism

yet he was also IMO the ULTIMATE classicit - as far as form goes

Schnabel was like Brendel of his time, a Beethoven freak, but it's kinda hard to find his recordings here, has anyone heard any of his recordings?


Aren't there a lot of them on Naxos?


Are they?


naxos historical


The sound is rather very gritty and not good, though its price is very good and the playing is exquisite and perfectly suited to Beethoven. One of the greatest Beethoven interpreters.

There are also some on "The great pianists of the 20th Century" series by Philips. I think the sond quality is fine and the playing is superb.

yeah and the great pianists of the 20th century series is very overpriced as wel...one CD for 20 USD? :shock: I think that's a bit much, but otherwise if you have a lot of money I suppose it's worth it.

Did I mention that I have the/a Good(e) recording?

It's very good sound quality, since it is relatively new so that good equipment has been invented, and it is very good playing. Very Beethoven-ish.

Yes this movement "rocks". I like it a lot also, enough to try to play it when I was not really ready, so in effect I butchered it and can't play it anymore. Maybe I will learn it in the future when I really AM ready. I played the second movement also which is lovely and the third I yet to have tried since it is hard.

Eh, I think it's $20 for 2 CDs which is not too bad. And I can get them from the library, so... :P.

Is it really 2 CD's for $20? I only thought it was only 1 CD. Maybe that is a good price then.

I never heard from that series before, though it is very famous. Do they have compilations, or do the artist record specifically for the series?
