It used to be available on Myto, but is probably quite hard to find now.
    The Krips/Wunderlich/DFD sounds just amazing. I have been looking out for it actually. Krips is not a conductor I count as a favorite, but I love DFD and Wunderlich is my all-time favorite tenor, especially as a singer of Lieder, so I owe it a shot. Overall, though, I think I prefer an alto in the lower role. Both are valid interpretations in my book, though. I have been thinking about DLvdE all day, ever since starting off my day with it. Such beautiful music...

    Frédéric Chopin: 24 Préludes, op.28. Martha Argerich. This is one of the recordings that first got me into classical music last year. Beautiful stuff...

    From the excellent DG Martha Argerich Collection

    Might I suggest to you the Immerseel/Bylsma/Beths. I think it's a great recording, on period instruments.

    Do you know the live Kubelik version with Janet Baker and Waldemar Kmentt? It's my all time favourite. Aside from the Haitink studio recording, there are three live versions with Baker (the others are with Kempe, a concert I attended myself, and with Leppard) but the Kubelik is something special indeed and Baker surpasses herself. The final Abschied is abolutely shattering.
