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. Razz 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 Smile
-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.

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