Re: Favorite recordings of Prokofiev Violin Concertos?

For both concertos on a single disc Ms. Chung is quite outstanding, although for the second concerto alone I prefer Mullova:

Cool, George! Any idea how much bread had been tossed into the bucket?

Re: Prokofiev Piano Sonatas

Is there a nice neat list of Richter's Prokofiev recordings? I went looking for them and realized they aren't organized so as to make it easy to get. And now some that look important are out of print and have prices that are way too high. Is there an easy way through this confusion, or do I just ne...

Re: Prokofiev Piano Sonatas

Is there a way to merge this thread with the other Prokofiev sonata thread recently started? Lotsa good info, here.

Re: Schubert Piano Sonatas

As noted above Richter strides like giant in this repertoire. But another Russian somewhat overlooked is Gilels. His D.850 on RCA and Moments Musicaux (Melodiya or Olympia) are exemplary (would love to someday hear is D.784 on Orfeo). Also agree with those nominating Lupu and Andsnes. But another wh...

Re: Shura Cherkassky

How good to see Shura's name pop up again on CMG! The information regarding Volume 6 [433 652] of Decca's live series is as follows: Carnaval recorded at Royal Festival Hall, London on January 31 1988 Three Fantasiestücke recorded at the Bath Festival, May 30 1986 Symphonic Etudes recorded at St. J...

Re: The case of pianist Andrei Gavrilov

The artist, after his EMI recording contract, joined the team at DGG. I never felt the DGG recordings captured the art of the pianist in the same manner as EMI. Well, just for the record, I'm a big Gavrilov fan, too, but to me his DG output is far from unworthy. :) In fact, the one instance where I...

Re: Prokofiev Piano Sonatas

Gavrilov's DG disc is good, too. DG really needs to put together a box set for him, like they did for Richter and Argerich. Many of his DG CDs are hard to find these days. Plus, Gavrilov is a fabulous pianist. Heard his Moments Musicaux by Rachmaninoff? They are breathtaking. Hey, George. It's Don!...

Re: Prokofiev pno concerti

Yes, many people may not realize Julius Katchen recorded Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto on two occasions. The Kertesz version not only appeared in the Philips "Great Pianists" series [Philips 456 859 , Volume 2, 2 CDs] but also on the English (and/or Australian) traversal of Katchen's art (Britis...

Re: Prokofiev pno concerti

For a complete set I agree with the Browning/Leinsdorf choice. The BSO (Boston Symphony Orchesra :wink: ) play with remarkable panache. For individual concertos Paik is good on Naxos, Richter's fifth is unmissable, and for the third Argerich is good. There is however a very special recording of the ...

Cliftwood: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51bnaiISenL._SL500_AA300_.jpg This Raekallio set is the finest set of recordings I've heard outside of Richter. Great sound, too. Guy (mentioned earlier) is on the lyrical side but extremely satisfying. Gavrilov's DG disc is good, too. It's been a wh...
