    Default Favorite album(s) featuring a musician that is NOT a pianist, violinist, or singer?

    What is your favorite album (or albums) featuring a musician that is NOT a pianist, violinist, or singer?


    Off the top of my head I would give two:

    The Saint-Saens clarinet sonata is an absolute delight and the other works are great too. Friedli's playing is buoyant, soulful, with a clear, inviting sound.

    Thomas Steven's trumpet playing is perfect. The whole disc is wonderful, but the Hindemith Sonata is the shining star. The last movement chorale is has such a velvety depth. I consider it the definitive recording of this work.

    There's too many to put any one above another, so I could not say which is my favorite. But I like this quite a bit.

    Elliott Carter - Cello Concerto

    Ernst Kernek - Kitharaulos

    With a heroic oboe performance from James Ostryniec.

    It will be something with a cello or guitar, of course. The couplings Du Pré and Elgar, and John Williams and Rodrigo come immediately to mind.

    Maybe the OP means recital or mixed albums, not one-composer stuff ...

    So we need some clarification here. I thought that the recording couldn't include piano, violin or voice at all; as opposed to a piece that may have piano, violin(s), or voices, but not center-stage.

    if the piano (or other instruments) are accompaniment then that is in the spirit of the OP
