It might be odd to say this in as much as Godowsky has contributed mightily to expounding on it in a way that captures and intensifies the soul of the music. Of course they can play it. Especially Cherkassky and Backhaus who make gorgeous music out of it.
And of course, the Godowsky performance has the all the authority of being by the creator and one of the master pianists of the ages. But where are the languid sexuality, the caressing movement of the air over the skin, the wisps of cigarette smoke, the sense that time has ceased to be relevant to this or any other moment? Cherkassky comes close in his rendition. There are moments when he capture the essence. Then the pianist takes over and the moment passes. Two performances of the Albeniz-Godowsky Tango that are very close to my heart are those of two of the greatest women pianists of the 20th century, Eileen Joyce and Dame Moura Lympany.
Like Novaes, they can do no wrong. Their performances are near perfection. There are other performances by lesser luminaries, beautifully played, but often quite missing the mark.
