Best Pianists of All Time
The Contenders: Page 7
The Greatest Pianist of the last 100 years!
One of the top ten 20th Century classical pianist. Go to You Tube and query his recording of the 3rd Movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, realize that he already had the tremors of Parkinsons Disease in this which was one of his last performances.
Most of us know him for his exercise books. But did you know he was considered one of the greatest pianist? He studied and worked with Beethoven. He had a student you might have heard of: Liszt. If you ever face a difficult time with your ability to play go back to his exercise books for the 4th and 5th finger, and his one for the left hand.
He is from India. He holds the record for the highest scorer in piano 8th grade exam conducted by the Trinity College of Music, London. He achieved this milestone at the age of 17. He is one of the fastest pianist in the world. Check out in YouTube. He is amazing... !
The World's Fastest Pianist according to the Guinness World Records
Just lookup his work and YouTube videos. I really don't know who made this list. Lots of names have been put here just out of sympathy.
Pure artistry. very difficult to compare one artist to another, all are unique, Rubenstein, Hess, Argerich...
Lots of hype about Rafal preceded my hearing him perform
Bach, Beethoven and Chopin two nights ago in San Francisco. Kissen and Ashkanazy WERE my #1 and #2. Rafal
Is now #1. Listen to him play, you may agree with me.
His technique is astonishing!
Has anybody ever heard of Back to December or All too well? Come on!
