So far I'm a little surprised that zero is the total for each of the sonatas.  But someone actually picked the "Album".

As per today:

Carnaval
Kinderszenen
Phantasie in C
Sonata no. 1 (although I hit wrongly Sonata no. 2 :) )

But it could change next week.

My four plus today's fave performances:

Davidsbündlertänze (original edition) - Pollini

Novelleten Op.21 - Richter (Schiff for the complete opus)

Sonata #1 F sharp minor - Grimaud

Sonata #3 F minor - Pollini (the first published version: Concert sans orchestre)

Would I do that?  Not this time anyways.  And each of the sonatas now has a vote; the underdogs have risen.

Yes, it should....but there seems to be a small copyright problem we can't get around.
