That's the greatness of classical music: its longetivity and freshness, no matter how old it is.

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

It's 24 dollars actually. Amazon.com sells it for 23.98. I have them all, which come in 200 CDs in total. Too many repeated tracks, I must say.

BTW, the best Beethoven's Pathetique sonata recording is played by Horowitz. You can't get any better recording than that of Horowitz's version. I have compared it with at least 20 recordings played by great pianists. Of course, Kempff, Arrau, Kuerti, Brendel, Schnabel, Backhaus, ...etc. None of them surpass Horowitz's recording of this sonata. It's generally understood that Beethoven's style of music doesn't really suit Horowitz's way of playing, but his recording of this sonata, my man, really commands respect from us.

The problem with this sonata is that the thematic material isnt as interesting as some of the others, imo.

The crossing hands part is the only thing I can play right in that movement. Everything else I just mess up.
