A similar thread was posted on PW a while back. Some of you may have responded there, but as far as I recall, there were plenty of calls for closure of the thread because of sexism and offensiveness. I’m hoping for a more open-minded crowd here.
The way I see it, visual aesthetics is undeniably a part of a performance, albeit (usually) to a lesser degree than musical skill. This includes the looks of the performer(s). All else being equal, I enjoy watching a concert by a beautiful performer more than a concert by a not so beautiful one. I don’t think this is sexist, I think this is just the way how most people are wired in almost all situations in life. If you do feel that this is sexist or offensive, please just skip this thread.
So this being a piano forum, who do you regard to be the most sexy pianist? I’m all for gender equality here, so no matter if the person is female, male, or non-binary.
For me, there can be only one.
