RE: [F_minor] Ravel

Yes, you're right.

I was responding to everyone who thinks Gould's version of x is definitive and unsurpassable.

I may be a Gould-worshipper, but I'm a legend-breaker at heart.

Hamelin is a very great talent but there are other wonderful artists out
there who do just a bang up job of interpretation.

If you haven't heard Hamelin's performance of the Godowski Etudes of
Chopin you would never know - with all due respect - that there is life
- and genius - beyond Gould's.
