Music Composers Unite!
Pianist Anatoli Vedernikov. I happened to buy a vinyl of him playing mozart, Haydn and Schumann. Soviet musician, the record printed in the USSR in 1987 (I think?). Excellent condition, very high quality recording and a very clear, precise style, it is classical yet has some emotional touches to it, keeping a very good balance, everything Mozart needs and I admit, his sonata no. 11 did make a good impression on me (it's one of those sonatas by mozart that i actually like, lol). I wonder what his Bach sounds like.
I'm starting to believe that soviet pianists had developed a very distinct style-they are very different sometimes, but all share attributes like clear, bold playing, smart, and sometimes limited, use of the pedal, very era-concious every time, be it mozart or chopin.
