Directly from the cd's booklet:
"...all of us who saw and heard him perform have our indelible memories of this - difficult - , autocratic, arch-perfectionist of the keyboards. ... for Maurizio Pollini, who studied with Michelangeli shortly after his triumph in the 1960 Chopin International Competition on Warsaw, he represented the - absolute peak of piano playing - ... today, dazzled, provoked and unsettled as we listen to this playing wich, backed by a technique "like steel and mercury", sweeps music clean "of the dulling patina of familiarity", we can only marvel at qualities that challenge our preconceptions at every turn, forcing us to reconsider music we knew intimately, even completely."
Get this cd because Michelangeli's live performances are beyond description!
