Hungarian Rhapsodies and other flashy pieces: Cziffra
More serious works: Bolet
Transcendental etudes and a general recommendation: Lazar Berman
Works for piano and orchestra: Zimerman
I like Jean-Yves Thibaudet's Ravel.
Oh, really? I already looked at a couple liszt cds, I put Cziffra for HRs and piano concerti, Berezovsky for Etudes. I guess I'll go look for some of those artists, too. Thanks
Here's some suggestions (but everybody will hgave their favourites)
Bartok - Concerto for Orchestra, 3rd Piano Concerto
Britten - Sea Interludes and Passacaglia from Peter Grimes, Requiem
Sibelius - Fifth Symphony, Finlandia, Karelia Suite, Violin concerto
Granados - Goyescas, Spanish Dances
Rimsky-Korsakov - Sheherazade, Capriccio Espagnol, Golden Cockerel Suite, Piano Concerto, any of the overtures
Ravel - Daphnis and Chloe, Bolero, Piano Concertos, La Valse
Schumann - Third Symphony, Piano Concerto
Brahms - 2nd Piano Concerto, Haydn Variations, violin/cello/clarinet sonatas
Wow! Thanks so much, Techneut. I'll go try to find some of those, apparently that Bartok concerto was one of Richter's favorites. Any suggestions as to the performer of Sibelius?
