Is it just me, or does the tempo of some of the Handel on his celebrated baroque recital run right away with him?

The recordings I've heard by MP sound like he's asleep at the keyboard.

Agree in part - not about his Mozart or Chopin, but certainly about his Beethoven concertos. His problem with the Handel (try the F major Suite again, Ted!) is at the other end of the spectrum though!

I often find the sound of apiano unattractive. Whenever I turn on the radio and hear a piano sound that appeals to me, 9 out of ten times its Murray P.

I was interested to hear an interview where he said that during his 4-year enforced rest (through his thumb injury) he took the opportunity to find out what made music tick by studying the works of Bach.

I would love to hear a recording of him playing the 48. I've become cheesed off with Glen Gould's version.

As a special treat I'd recommend you try Edwin Fischer's recording of the 48 - you will never ever hear the piano more seductively played. Fischer's is an interpretation of astonishing humanity and depth and everybody should own a copy.

Years ago I heard Edwin Fischer on the radio performing one of the Bach keyboard concertos. There was an immediate appeal to it - if a performance could be characterized as smiling, it would be Fischer playing Bach.
