    I don't think I've ever heard of her before!

    It's hard to say something constructive about something I find tedious when played for extended periods except maybe as background music...I'm just glad of the day when multitonality was invented

    Not "old style" whatever that means, but Wendy Carlos -- and still some may say that she does not fit the criteria of what you're looking for in your second request either...

    Graceful Ghost Rag by William Bolcom. I like this version - it's interesting to listen to the different interpretations on youtube.
    You seek a great fortune, you three who are now in chains. You will find a fortune, though it will not be the one you seek.
    But first you must travel a long and difficult road, a road fraught with peril.
    You shall see things, wonderful to tell. You shall see a... cow... on the roof of a cotton house. And, oh, so many startlements.
    I cannot tell you how long this road shall be, but fear not the ob-stacles in your path, for fate has vouchsafed your reward.
    Though the road may wind, yea, your hearts grow weary, still shall ye follow them, even unto your salvation
    .

    My other Bolcom fave: Song of Black Max (as told by the de Kooning Boys) So Sinister... I really like her interpretation (but you will need to turn up the volume.)
    You seek a great fortune, you three who are now in chains. You will find a fortune, though it will not be the one you seek.
    But first you must travel a long and difficult road, a road fraught with peril.
    You shall see things, wonderful to tell. You shall see a... cow... on the roof of a cotton house. And, oh, so many startlements.
    I cannot tell you how long this road shall be, but fear not the ob-stacles in your path, for fate has vouchsafed your reward.

    I've been watching the performances from the 2001 Van Cliburn competition and I have fallen in love with Olga Kern's performance of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3. It is perhaps one of (if not THE) most difficult pieces to play, and captured my breath in many segments. The end is absolutely phenomenal, as well. You can feel the emotion, the swift breath of anxiety, and the tension as Olga and the conductor exchange glances before the finale.

    Enjoy.





    Fun Fact. There were two 1st place winners that year. Here was the other winner, playing perhaps one of my all time favorite pieces- Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1

    And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for you?- Matthew 6:30

    Meraviglioso.

    Dear Subteigh,

    May I humbly submit this video which is perfect in so many ways:

    You seek a great fortune, you three who are now in chains. You will find a fortune, though it will not be the one you seek.
    But first you must travel a long and difficult road, a road fraught with peril.
    You shall see things, wonderful to tell. You shall see a... cow... on the roof of a cotton house. And, oh, so many startlements.
    I cannot tell you how long this road shall be, but fear not the ob-stacles in your path, for fate has vouchsafed your reward.
    Though the road may wind, yea, your hearts grow weary, still shall ye follow them, even unto your salvation
    .
