Sandor Vegh by Ben Lim

I love Sandor Vegh. What a personality, a force of nature.

Also pleasant reading is Steven Isserlis' writing on his time studying/working with Vegh

The pianist Sviatoslav Richter called "God" by Ben Lim

A lovely read of an interview with the pianist Vladimir Sofronitsky. Check out his recordings on youtube! Although, it must be said he referred to his recordings (with much disdain) as his "skeletons"

Chopin's Students by Ben Lim


Do take a visit to this page, plenty of recordings of Chopin's grand-students! Should provide plenty of food for thought as to how Chopin wanted his music to be played.



Cziffra, the Legend. by Ben Lim

The memoirs of Cziffra, through his life and his relationship to music through war.

It is such an absorbing read and provides valuable insight into the man, the musician, the artist.
