… for starters, some great Russians on Melodiya. Vladimir Krainev’s bullish and rhythmically taut set of the Prokofiev concertos (under Kitayenko), more imposing by far than his Teldec set. Samiil Feinberg in Scriabin Mazurkas, two exquisite miniaturists working for a common magical cause (Feinberg’s Bach 48 on Pristine is as unmissable), and Magda Tagliaferro (on Heritage), in Reynaldo Hahn and Schumann. Years ago these and other recordings like them would have been the exclusive property of sleuth-like collectors, but not now. I could go on and on, but who would like to add to the list? Any pianist from any era, ancient or modern.
