Snooze Button #634 28 Oct 2009

Piano Wednesday! Halloween offerings continue with two spooky pieces (Schumann and Liszt) played by Sviatoslav Richter; a hellishly difficult etude by Charles-Valentin Alkan played by Marc-Andre Hamelin; an incandescent recording of Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Paganini with pianist Earl Wild and conductor Jascha Horenstein; Prokofieff’s “Suggestion Diabolique”.
