Out of Later Years, Vol. 1
4.7 out of 5 stars with 129 reviews
The Bach Fantasy in C Minor, S. 906; Brahms Intermezzo, Op. 116, No. 5; and Beethoven Rondo in C, Op. 51, No. 1 already exist in Sviatoslav Richter performances in Philips's Authorized Richter Edition and other Live Classics releases. Philips's Beethoven Rondo boasts richer sound and crisper articulation in the pianist's downward runs. Conversely, Richter's concept of the Bach Fantasy is broader and more intense here. Purists will take issue with the pianist's distinctly un-Baroque sonority and
Dame Myra Hess: Live From the University of Illinois Vol. 1
4.9 out of 5 stars with 65 reviews
Like many pianists of her generation, Dame Myra Hess was a performer rather than a recorder. She simply shined in front of an audience, singing out Chopin's F Minor Fantasy in rolling, assertive paragraphs, and delivering a carefully selected Schubert Dance set with twinkling generosity. Her Schubert B Flat Opus Posthumous Sonata is more congenial than searching, yet always singing, and without the strain of her BBC version recorded a decade later. --Jed Distler.

Yevgeny Kissin is one of the most successful pianists of his generation. This disc, recorded live at a Carnegie Hall concert, demonstrates why. Kissin is one of the best Chopin players alive. His playing of the big Fantasy is among the best performances I've heard, catching each mood of the music and playing with flexible rhythms that never deteriorate into anarchy. The Nocturnes sound like very private meditations, while the Scherzo is a big public statement. All of these fine interpretations
Sergio Fiorentino: Live in Germany
4.3 out of 5 stars with 125 reviews
Emerging from a long obscurity, Sergio Fiorentino gave a concert tour of Germany. These discs come from decent amateur recordings along that tour. The Chopin Second Sonata, full of poetry and passion, is one of the greatest performances of that work I've ever heard, and so is the Schumann Fantasy. In both works, coming from unedited concerts, the pianist's technique is amazingly strong. He also shows a wide range of musical comprehension throughout this varied program. Even on the basis of
