    That's good... but Ashkenazy for the piano concerti? Why bother with him when we have pianists like Gilels, Rubinstein, Curzon, and Fleisher I'm a little curious, that's it.

    First off I'd just like to say Hi, since this is my first post here.

    Anyway, I'll just make a short list. A couple classical CD's I couldn't live without:

    Bach - Goldberg Variations - Gould on CBS/Sony 1981 Recording
    Chopin - Piano Concertos #1 & 2 - Samson Francois/Louis Fremaux on EMI
    Mahler - Das Lied Von Der Erde - Bernstein/VPO on Decca w/King & Dieskau
    Mozart - Requiem - Marriner/ASMF on Philips w/McNair, Watkinson, Araiza & Lloyd
    Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto #1 - Richter/Karajan on DG

    The Mozart & Mahler albums especially. I've listened to each of those probably 500 times going to sleep at night. Those are my 2 I really couldn't live without.

    I'll just list 5 pieces I'd love to bring with me:

    1) Liszt's Jeux d'eaux by Lazar Berman.

    2) Chopin's Mazurka op. 17 #4 by Arthur Rubinstein.

    3) Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto by Nathan Milstein.

    4) Debussy's Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune for flute & piano, by Bernold & Jacob (for some reason, this stripped-down version moves me a lot more than the usual one for orchestra).

    5) Satie's 4th Gnossienne - as beautiful as Gymnopédie #1, but not overplayed - also, one of the first pieces I learned to play.

    The CD I have seems to have been recorded in 1973. Are there several recordings by the same violonist?

    Mine is a long out-of-print recording of the Beethoven Vln Cto. with Grumieaux and Concertgebou conducted by van Beinum.

    It was my first childhood classical record, sort of like Proust's "madeline in the tea moment" and I've never forggoten it.

    I haven't heard that Beethoven concerto in a while. I remember it has a great last movement. I saw it live by Gérard Poulet in the mid-90s, very good show. He played a bit of Paganini as an encore (Caprice #17, if I remember correctly).
