While that is undoubtedly true, does it have any significance?



Great significance to me, at least personally.

Certainly. Makes you wonder how the world of the piano would look without that Lisztian tree, had the man never devoted himself to teaching. Comparing with Chopin in this sense, it's rather difficult to say how much of his teachings that actually carried through his pupils and to their various pupils. Raol Koczalski was taught by Mikuli but it seems he didn't think much of him as a pianist. Rosenthal did study with Mikuli as well - however, while Mikuli taught him legato and touch, he eventually was to be taught by Rafael Joseffy, Liszt and others who had a different approach to piano. Liszt also commented on that Chopin was fairly unfortunate with students - fairly few of them were truly of extraordinary talent. Meanwhile, Liszt coached hundreds and hundreds of pianists...


I've discovered Frederic Lamond's Beethoven playing more and more lately. It is said that he was very famed for his Beethoven recordings in the early 20th century, until Schnabel came along and recorded all the sonatas. He has a remarkably flexible approach to tempo and character, and many here will find a lot of it disagreeable, for sure:
