that Ashkenazy cd is awesome, unfortunately the other concerto recordings of his that i've heard are mediocre at best.

I have some other ones, but I can't think of now.

How about the Alkan concerto for Solo piano played by Hamelin? Legendary recording.


best Rach2: William kapell
best Rach3: Byron Janis

I used to think the same

I listened to all 5 (and 6 for the video) version of it

I personally think 1941 (Barbeilli) or 1954 (Reiner) are the best.

Until I have heard Janis', same technique, same electricity, more excitment.

are you talking about the janis/munch recording? i have this one and i agree that its a great version but to me it sounds too much like Horowitz without being as good. Its a little too exciting and there seems to be times when the orchestra and soloist are slightly out of sync.

I agree with SMD. Horowitz is great, but his pupil, janis, is better. I like it moret han Horowitz version.

Ashkenazy may not be the best, but it is very unique. Not bombastic, but very lucid and well done. Those other recordings are also fantastic, of course.

Ashkenazy's Rach3 is............. Evil or Very Mad

My favorite recordings are those of Walter Gieseking, my favorite modern pianist Wink. I most admire his performances of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Mozart's Sonatas, and Debussy's Complete Piano Works, for his nobility of thought and technical ease.


I agree. I love his Debussy recordings especially (though not all his recordings are my favourite of that piece).

At the moment, it's Ziff's Rach 2 - he gives the piece a real personality and passion, along with Mini Ziff.
