Still my favorite performance.

Ellsasser was known for playing very fast, that is true, but this is right at 100mm.

And you thought Virgil played it fast!

By: mjgouldini on Jan, 18 2015

Fast, yet exciting, accurate and colorful. I have heard other "slower" versions that, while equally accurate lack the vitality that I get from this presentation. And it it is Allegro Vivace! Funny, when it comes to the Toccata Ellsasser is right on with the tempo. Others are way too fast.

Much too fast. So the music looses character and expression. Sorry, THAT is NOT the way!

A shame to play this great piece in such manner.
