I find it really hard to speak French (properly), reading is quite easy though. (6 years of painful French lessons)

I'm a huge fan of Beethoven's Piano Sonatas, especially the late ones. Not so much the Hammerklavier sonata but no. 31 and 32 are among my favorite classical works.

Glenn Gould probably isn't the best Beethoven pianist of all time but for this movement he's great. Somehow he manages to play fugues and polyphonic works in general very well.

I often consider Gould as not so much of a pianist but more of a master in the art of counterpoint. It's as if instead of playing a composer's music, he was trying to tap directly into what made some of their music so great (to uneven results, maybe). In that light, I think that it that it shouldn't as a surprise why his Bach is so unisersally well liked, because of all composers, he was certainly one of those who gave Gould the most to work with.

Is there anybody who doesn't know what Furtwangler's 1942 recording of Beethoven's ninth is?

I've heard of it and its kind of legendary status but I don't own it (yet).

I like this work so much, this is a very good performance. The most unabashedly romantic that I've heard so far.

I'm still alive as well. smile.gif

I started writing music a few weeks ago, nothing amazing of course. I wrote a few chaconnes, the form is very interesting and inspiring. I might post one of them once it's finished.

Posting shitty synthesizer compositions in flac is nothing short of self-indulgent. :<

Both Chopin's Piano Concertos kick ass, especially the first movements. Overall, he did incredible romantic stuff for piano. Up to date, my favourite composer.
