GG: Musical Tastes
I would first like to thank the people who contributed
on the Chaccone thread that I initiated. Still, I love
the Busoni transcription and regret the fact that GG did
not record it.
On a different note, I was thinking about his musical
preferences, which there is substantial information about.
But, some things are hard to accept: his total rejection
of magor composers such as Chopin ( well except Sonata #2 ),
Schumann, Liszt ( except Beet. 5th & 6th Symph ), Rachmaninoff
etc. Maybe it was just an impression that he wanted to generate in
( Hold it, I'm a true Bach & GG addict )
I can just imagine him playing those wonderful Chopin
Nocturnes late at night when everybody's asleep...
I always thought that someones CD collection is the most true
of his musical tastes. If you love it you will eventually aquire it.
So, the point is, is there any info out there about the contents
of his Record / Tape / CD(?) collection ? Not just comments and quotes
the real Truth...
