 The Best May 8, 2012 By Barbara E. See All My Reviews "For me, Zoltan Kocsis is the best pianist of this generation. I have not been classically trained as some. However, I do know what I enjoy and I enjoy his interpretations of these classics. The best feature of his work is his lighter than air touch to the keys. As you know, some artists will "attack" the keys. Zoltan Kocsis caresses them. I am now in the process of finding and purchasing all pieces I can in which he performed." Report Abuse
