Classical corner

Please post specific performances to go with suggested pieces. The performance can really make or break a piece, so don't just say "I really love The Rite of Spring".

I have a ton of recommendations, but here are a few to start:


piano sonata:

Pogorelić — Scriabin 2nd, first movement
Ashkenazy — Rachmaninov 2nd, unrevised version
Rachmaninov — Chopin 2nd
Horowitz — Prokofiev 7th
Taub — Scriabin 10th and 5th

piano concerto:

Ugorski — Scriabin
Ashkenazy — Prokofiev 2nd
Rachmaninov — Rachmaninov 2nd and 3rd
Black — Rachmaninov 4th (1913)
Ogawa — Tcherepnin 5th and 1st

symphonic:

Shui — Tcherepnin 3rd
Bogunia — Dvorak 4th
Slatkin — Prokofiev 6th
Slatkin — Rachmaninov 1st
Maazel — Scriabin Poem of Ecstasy and Prometheus

Re: Classical corner



muffled low-grade Youtube sound but still nice



I still can't decide if I like this piece or not. Busoni is an odd duck. It seems overstuffed.

Horowitz, of course, has become known for it. There's a neat video of him in his very old age playing it live for the last time.
