    It's a bit of a cliché but the first movement of Mozart P21 really separates the wheat from the chaff for concert pianists. The best I've ever heard was Vladimir Ashkenazy who didn't miss a note and absolutely sets the high-bar for the piece, but I can't find him playing it on YouTube.

    Rudi Serkin is a close second but I'm not keen on the cadenza.

    (Piano from about 2.30):

    Also in the jazz style, get Oscar Peterson & Joe Pass' live LP À La Salle Pleyel. Not on youtube, but it's on spotify - the big track (IMO) is Just Me, Just You. So hot.

    Just discovered Horace Parlan....plays really nicely, accessible jazz, but drops some really unexpected chords
    quite a few blue note recordings in the early 60s.....im yet to check out his later recordings...died last year
    Loving this bossa style one: Congalegre - with a killer conga solo on it

    That's a great album.

    Actually a great series; well worth checking the other in the series out too.

    Just listening to some fantastic piano music on radio 3. Arvo Part Spiegel im Speigel. Waiting to hear what recording.

    That's a great piece. And when you look at the violin part, and see a page full of (dotted) semibreves, it's easy to say "Pah, easy".

    Until you try to play a page full of semibreves with a suitable and consistent tone... :hmm:

    I picked up this 1970s box set from a charity shop last week, and am loving it so far. The john Ireland is very pretty indeed.

    Anyone mentioned James Booker yet?
    Amazing piano player (....and character!!) who could play all styles from classical to stride.

    Can't post any links from phone I'm afraid.
