I just looked up Jorge Bolet's biography. He died about 20 years ago in 1990. I remember seeing videos of him playing the piano on the Music and Arts channel or Bravo.
Liszt a trashy composer? You better ask Jorge Bolet first. I have not one recording of his and I ask myself why? If he was as good as he sounded through a crumby TV speaker then he would sound great on my stereo.
Any thoughts about Bolet? Am I making too big of deal about him? Is he a forgotten master? Or should he just be forgotten?
