    William Kapell

    Wonderful Pianist, died tragically in a plane crash, little documentary on him, thought it might be of interest.

    maybe you've heard his recording of the Katchaturian concerto, he debuted it

    I've heard of him, but am not very familiar with him. I understand there's not much video footage of him. Did he make many recordings?
