    Which album, ghost?

    Selected piano concerti: Gulda/Abbado, Haskil
    Horn concerti: Brain/Karajan
    Piano sonatas: Uchida, Pires
    String quartets: Italiano
    String quintets: Grumiaux Trio with two extra musicians I can't think of
    A lot of my favorites there, although I'll go with Perahia for the concertos. I don't know the Bernstein and Savall recordings.

    When I was a newbie in classical music, Mozart made me appreciate and enjoy opera, thanks to Sir Georg Solti's recording of Le Nozze di Figaro from the early 1980s. This recording created an eternal love for Mozart, for his operas, and for the voice of Lucia Popp, who sang the part of Susanna in that one.
    So yeah… no doubt that this 3-CD set has to be my favourite Mozart recording ever. And it is.

    Over the past few months this is the Mozart that I’ve enjoyed most I think. These little sonatas can be great fun.

    My choice is Richter's 1989 live CD that consists of three Mozart sonatas, including the A minor sonata.

    Richard Egarr's album of keyboard music on Harmonia Mundi really opened my ears...

    I doubt he'll ever live this down.

    Check out Uchida's piano sonatas and Hamelin's album with the wonderful Fantasia in D Minor on it, Mackerras' Symphonies with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Britten conducting Symphonies 25 & 29, Herreweghe's Gran Partita and Last Symphonies, Isabelle Faust's Violin Concertos, and Butt's Requiem. I actually enjoy Karajan's Requiem, too, but Butt is currently my go-to listen.
