I like the way Yundi plays Chopin as well.. Cortot, too.
And these random Russian, Czech, and Polish pianists' I have recs of (can't get the names now because I'm at school), & Dubravka Tomsic (I had some more recs of hers.. it's all a matter of finding them).
Sadly, my knowledge of pianists is still relatively limited >_o I'm slowly gettin there tho ^-^''

Rubinstein: Well, many don't like his interpretations, because they are less romantic and display less of what Chopin's era was like and stood for, but I mean, the man learned every piece written by Chopin, give him some credit! :)Also, I don't mind hist interps, they give a neat view at the pieces and let you decide how much of what you're going to put into your own interpretations.

What are your views? :)


Huh? Rubinstein is well-known for the most romantic Chopin player ever.

I don't feel anything for him, simply i don't think it's special at all.

Rubinstein.
Lipatti.
Rachmaninoff, I you are able to tolerate the noise of those old recordings, his playing of the 2nd piano sonata is unforgettable.
Some inches below Cortot.

Just wanted to mention Dang Thai Son, who is according to me also amazing, but hasn't got so much reputation.

Of course those who are mentioned in this thread are better :)?

For sure, he is quite amazing. I think that he lives in Canada, too. :)

In terms of Nocturnes.........Idil Biret but she studied with Cortot and I think Ruberstein.... in this biography it said that Cortot thought she was the best interpretor of Chopin in the 20th Centuary! She is my favourite!!
:D
So close and yet so far.........
Nocturnes rule ALL!

He must have been smoking the wacky tabaccy. Just kidding, but really I don't care for Biret. I so like the other two pianists you mentioned. I love Rubinstein's early recordings of the Slavic music and Cortot in the ballades, etudes and preludes. Also about a million other pianists play certain things wonderfully.

He is popular only in Japan, which is sad. I think he is a great player. I love his playing of the Ballade very much.

Of course my other favorites are Ashkenazy, Rubinstein, and Horowitz.

I never saw anyone mention Samson Francois. How is his status in this forum?
