Watts is a fantastic pianist and musician! I feel like he was even better when younger, but I saw him do the Grieg concerto this summer and it was still rocking.

In my experience, at least, Watts has always been more exciting in concert than any of his recordings I have heard.

Memories -also- of a very kinetic MacDowell D minor. That piece takes no prisoners -Rachmaninov was loftily unimpressed (but imagine how he would have played it?) -yet in the hands of a Watts it comes to life in concert, and makes one realize that some music simply thrives in a real-time environment.

MacDowell's A minor concerto, totally conventional and predictable, only comes to life when the performer truly believes in it and sheds any self-consciousness. (And the 2nd subject in the 1st movement? Who could not be moved by such heart-felt emotion? I love it.)

Leslie Howard. Coupled with his performance of Totentanz, the disc is just stunning.
