some education for me tonight:     cheers   mick

No SACD player, here but beautiful regardless. I think this is my favourite recording of Bach's sonatas and partitas to date  

Bach, the gift that (sometimes) keeps giving. I find that annoying because some Bach (most of his vocal settings) is hard for me to listen to. But then there is this, which puts him on a very high pedestal:

Nevermind the Tuckwells and Halsteads, this is still my reference recording. Tim Brown does a fantastic job on the valveless horn (much like the one pictured), and Kuijken‘s harpsichord continuo elevates the pieces to a whole new level or charming and authentic.

Always find this triple billing strange, even after owning this record for years.  
Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, Rachmaninov’s 6 Preludes and Prokofiev’s Toccata op.11 by 3 separate pianists.

 

But all is forgotten once I started playing this record. Probably one of the better sounding piano records in my collection.
