LAZAR BERMAN - LISZT Transcendental Etude No.8 Wilde Jagd

I saw Berman play this piece live, from the front row in St. Pete Bayfront Center. Do you think this is amazing?? In person, up close, it was truly transcendent and magical. He played a series of eight warhorses, Tarentella, Dante Sonata. Just as with our first recital--in Tallahassee, four months before---the sounds that he made come from the piano seemed impossible, like some incredible, powerful magic. He seemed to be possessed, enchanted, throwing himself completely and utterly into each piece and creating music that has never before nor likely since been heard, except by those who experienced him in his prime. At the end of each piece he played the last notes and then sprawled back against the piano, eyes wide as if he'd just challenged the devil and just escaped with his life, and starting with the first, the entire audience, as one, leaped to standing as if drawn by an irresistible force. We applauded with manic enthusiasm, as you might applaud someone who made someone who had just opened new dimensions of knowledge and mystery before your very eyes. I have seen many pianists, and am a pianist myself, and can play this piece---but I have never seen another pianist like Lazar Berman.

I love the way he plays the beginning.

All the performance is a monster.... From 0:00 to 4:45 is the best moment....

Wow. That was amazing. I'd previously preferred the solo piano version by Lisitsa, but watch?v=tOarLZFc9Fo .

I have the Melodiya Russian Piano School Vol. 8 recording of this. The sound quality isn't quite as direct as this. Where is this from?

Is this case, i must say Kissin's is the best... Actually I consider Berman an astonishing pianist (his mazzeppa is the best in muy opinion), but here he's ONLY A STEP under Kissin's

@jbccaldas Hi, be sure to check out Richter's performance circa 1950 and Evgeny Kissin's live performance.
