    Kempff was absolutely one of the greatest, if not THE greatest of the our time.



    I don't think anyone else plays it quite so perfectly. And that German Steinway sounds like a dream.

    Also, click on his rendition of movement #3 to see some fancy finger work.

    thanks guys... I came across it while looking for examples of piano for my son who is taking a liking to music. It didn't get many views before it dropped off the map, so I thought I'd give it a bump..

    I think there is posted someplace on TB a version of this where Stu Hamm plays it on his bass during a pro-longed solo.

    thanks Sam. Good to see you. That guy is a heck of a musician. I've heard the song many times before, but the way he played it, the song really "spoke" to me. Very soulful and moving.

    That's just it, the guy made the otherwise ordinary, extra-ordinary..

    I mean what more could one ask for than Beethoven played thru a Hamburg Steinway Model D by Kempff??

    Wow, gorgeous. Makes the versions I have on CD sound hamfisted. Listened to the 2nd and 3rd movements too.

    Thanks for posting.

    bump for an amazing recording, by an amazing musician of an amazing piece.

    Pointedly Teutonic, even Lutheran!
