    I have FINALLY found out how Brendel became the great pianist he is!! Could never find out anything about how he got started! To be 'largely self taught' and to have reached the level he has is truly amazing. LOVE his playing and his quirky intelect!...his poetry is truly amazing! He also likes strange native masks and odd people...

    Hmm. He's still alive? I guess I can bump him from "second-ish favourite pianist, maybe 1.5th" to "favourite living pianist" then -- the No. 2 spot never seemed quite fair.

    I think he's the best interpretator of the Schubert's sonatas. But that's just my opinion...

    Seriously hot shit. If Wikipedia is to be believed, pretty much self-taught as well. Utterly, utterly disgusting that he can be this good...

    His recordings introduced me to Haydn's pianos sonatas, for which I'm eternally grateful.

    I must say, his recordings of Liszt's Annees de Pelerinage are simply genious. :)

    similar artists: glenn gould, horowitz, argerich, richter, rubinstein. I'm flabbergasted.
