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.
