BEETHOVEN: “Beethoven/Liszt” = Symphonies Nos. 7 & 1 (arr. for piano by Liszt) – Yury Martynov, Érard piano 1837 – Zig-Zag Records
An excellent piano version of two Beethoven symphonies, with an appropriate piano from Liszt’s time.
BRAHMS: Late Piano Works, Op. 116-119; Bonus Conversation: Brahms and His Pianos – Gwendolyn Mok, p. – MSR Classics
Historical? Yes. But Mok finds a way beyond the archeology trap.
RAVEL: Sonatine; Gaspard de la Nuit; Menuet antique; Le Tombeau de Couperin – Paolo Giacometti, same selections on Erard & Steinway pianos – Channel Classics (2 discs)
Fascinating A/B comparison of the same repertory and same pianist, on both old and new grand pianos.
Brahms First Piano Concerto as he heard it?
