I've heard other pianists play some of these pieces, and none of them can touch Earl Wild for excitement and virtuosity. This is my favorite audio recording, along with Lang Lang's, of Liszt's Don Juan Fantasy (Mozart).

There is(was)no one quite like Earl Wild. A technique at the same level as Horowitz but a greater breadth of repertoire. The elitists who stick up their nose at the fact that Wild performed Gershwin frequently and was Sid Caesar's studio pianist are giving one of the twentieth century's greatest pianists short shrift and missing out on some stunning pianistic achievements. One of my favorite anecdotes about Wild is the time Leinsdorf called him and asked if he knew the Scharwenka B minor. His response was something to the effect that he'd been sitting by the phone for the last forty years hoping someone would call and ask him to record that concerto. He did record it along with the Paderewski and proved that these two relatively unknown but very melodic concertos clearly deserve more frequent hearings.
