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?
