I don't find her playing offensive or anything.

Care to educate me on why you say "Eww Biret YUCK" about this pianist? [/b]
I find her playing completely passionless and her phrasing, especially with Chopin, leaves much to be desired. It's just so... boring. It's like she learns as many pieces as she can without worrying about how they sound.

I believe it was a forum member here who said that "There's quality and quantity and Biret only has one."

I'm so glad someone else does not approve of Biret. I agree with your comments valarking - I find that she hops, especially in her album of Chopin's waltzes. (I don't know if anyone knows what I mean by hopping; in my opinion it is when the pianist plays rubato to such an extreme that the piece sounds almost in compound time, somehow. She does this perfectly in one of the waltzes, I forget which one). She also plays everything far too fast and seemingly with no emotion whatsoever. And she has scary hands.

Beautiful CD! You can check out the
Program Notes and listen here to a sample from Verdi's "Ave Maria"


"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that
we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."-- Theodore Roosevelt

I just signed up with Listen.com (LOVE IT!) and I'm listening to all the CDs that I've wanted to try, but was afraid of spending money on them. Diana Krall, Joan Armatrading, Julia Fordham, etc. Last night I was listening to "Beethoven's Last Night" by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

I see. I am learning Chopin currently and was just looking for reference material for ideas. Not a good choice I take it.

Do you have a suggestion for a pianist for the Chopin Preludes or Chopin in general?

Thanks.
