Thanks for the alert, Rach3! The piano disc by Kantorow is available on amazon for free listening, so I'll try that soon.

You will enjoy this wide ranging interview with Frank Peter Zimmerman, I think. He talks about the masters and how they influenced him as a child, about performance approaches to the Beethoven VC, which he has played 300 times, and sundry other matters that are all interesting.

He mentions the Beethoven VS recordings and I'm sold on that one. BIS is a signature of top recording quality also.

As of now, my personal favorite in the Beethoven Sonatas involves Martha Argerich (again!) with Gidon Kremer, which I have as part of her complete DGG Box. Another set, equally good, is with Henryk Szeryng. Isaac Stern is rather bland in comparison, IMHO. A version I haven't yet heard is by Isabelle Faust/Alexander Melnikov, which has been widely praised.
