    I don't know what people's "obsession" with recordings is. Music is meant to be played and heard live.
    As has been demonstrated for a hundred and more years now, live, live-recorded, and studio-recorded are all valid. Music is communicated and listened to in/from all environs. It does what it does. There is no correct way. There are preferences, that's all.

    In some jest, I might add "live" is certainly good validation for guarding against the Joyce Hatto types, and too creative recording engineers.

    My piano listening experience is limited, but I've been extremely impressed by Mitsuko Uchida and Maria João Pires, mainly for Mozart pieces.
