Earl Wild, the America virtuoso pianist, died on Saturday, January 23, 2010. Earl Wild impressed me as a performer who could do everything well. Art Scott loves Wild’s Brahams CD. I love that, and Wild’s Chopin. In fact, I love all the Earl Wild CDs I own. The man was without pretension. And, that might explain why Earl Wild is not more well known. He never stayed with one record company for long. He jumped around. Over time, Wild’s recordings went out-of-print. Recently, there has been an attempt to rescue many of Earl Wild’s wonderful performances and make them available to the public again.
