Prelude in G major, Op. 32 No. 5

This year many records by Benno Moiseiwitsch appeared on youtube This one is absolutely miraculous https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovwLWA5_1Ek The light in every sound. Benno is a great poet! I guess no one can play this piece better than he did. Nowadays pianists can not make the piano sound this w...

Hope you like it. If you know the same kind of records of this period, I wil...

Re: Nerves

I am not that good historian of SVR's life and habits, I've met few mentionings that he was very "special" while on the stage, very serious, very concentrated, sometimes they write that his face was absolutely pale. I can translate only 1 piece of memoirs from Russian - E. K. Somova recoll...

Re: Nerves

Thank You, Zane, for this post! I would rather say that this question is quite complicated. But whether this is true or not, I think it doesn't have to be discussed. I might say the thing that would not be pleasant to hear, but it is very very true - Americans very often tend to speak about physiolo...

Re: Rachmaninoff playing in movie, does exist any?

Hello, Fernando! I've heard that such a record exists. That some conservatory teacher in Moscow showed such kind of tape to his students in 50-s, or 60-s. I've also heard that some collector in Caucasus has got such a record but keeps it for himself. I haven't seen such a record yet, but I hope it e...
