bob, you have just mentioned one of the great ringers. absolutely astounding
pianist. i remember his first recording , the chopin first, after he had just
won the chopin competition in '60, i believe. he has the most noticeably liquid,
effortless and gorgeous sound you'll ever hear. never ever harsh, tasteless or
incompetently showy like so many. he made his judges look sick, i'm afraid.
and he's still around, thank god.

J & R is trying to hose the contents of my wallet with a big classical music CD
sale, and one CD wooing me is Book 1, The Well-Tempered Clavier by Maurizio
Pollini. Anybody have opinions about Signore Pollini, or his Bach?
