Good grief, bloody hell. Rubinstein's octaves over Argerich? What are you smoking? There is a lot I admire about Rubinstein -and those treacherous octaves in the Chopin F minor Fantasy are well addressed- but in general Rubinstein's octaves are the Toyota Camry compared to Argerich's BMW 3 series.

Watch this interesting interview with Sir Charles Groves. There is some great footage of Argerich's octaves (they are really awesome), also her priceless English: 'I am not afraid of speed on the contrary, on the contrary that is my problem.'



Poor old Charles, waiting for the camera to stop rolling. Standing there wondering if he's gonna find out if her reputation is just reputation.

Maybe overall as a composer, because I've sung some of his music in choir and it is AWESOME, but I'm having trouble getting into his piano music besides the Variations Serieuses.

I would love to have got to know Sir Charles. He seems so lovely.

You can visit his ashes in the crypt of St. Paul's Cathedral. They're in one of the chapels. Stanford -and I believe Parry- are in the floor.
