What are some particular recordings that you could not live without? I currently don't have too many, and would like to get some more, by other composers as well. What would you suggest? I would like to get some concertos, and maybe some Mozart sonatas...

This is currently what I have:

-Almost everything by Chopin
-A few pieces by Debussy
-Schubert impromptus, symphonies and a few sonatas
-Several Beethoven sonatas
-A few pieces by Liszt
-Mozart symphonies

Well, here's mine:

All Alfred Brendel cds that I have. All Karajan Cds. That's all, I can live without Cziffra or Horowitz sometimes, but these two are my fav. Life without them is hell for me.

That's a long list . Any Mozart sonatas or concertos? Which are your favorites?

Also add Brendel for the PCs, and Karajan is the best choice IMO.
