A great pianist
Freddy Kempf is one piano star. However, is the banging really necessary?
I have this album and I really like how he plays, except for the banging. I think if he records on more high quality pianos like Bosendorfer, Fazioli, or Steinway, instead of sometimes using a Yamaha, the banging will no longer be necessary to achieve the fortissimo he desires. Although I am not completely satisfied with the acoustics of this album, Mr. Kempf is still a great pianist.
What a highly neglected pianist. His interpretation of the Apassionata is possibly the best in the last decade. And I agree with the comment below, if he used something higher than a Yamaha, then this would sound incredible.
Absolutely, incredibly, fantastically amazing.
