  1. Jazz musicians that played chess.

    There's a lovely photo somewhere of Braxton playing chess with Misha Mengelberg at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam. I believe Michael Vatcher plays very well too...
  2. Many of the Nancarrow player piano studies would fit the bill, I guess: some amazing canonic writing! ...and I'm not sure if I'm always a fan, but some of Sorabji's fugal writing is pretty remarkable, I guess..: A student of mine has just worked on a prelude and fugue by Rodion Schchedrin as well...super austere Soviet writing, but really crafted stuff...
  3. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    ...including one of the most singular and brilliant Gaspards I've ever heard...
  4. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Incredible versions IMHO!
  5. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    I enjoyed it! Apart from the Siloti, the arrangements were new to me (Kabalevsky - who knew?!?), and I suppose some inevitably convince more than others. But the playing is great - real clarity! The C Minor Passacaglia, for instance, is really wonderful playing imho.
  6. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Yes...almost shocking in many respects...what a master.
  7. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Yes! One of my favourite op.111 performances...
  8. Happy Birthday, Alexander Hawkins!
