I fully agree, that the Dunedin's recordings are enjoyable (Brandenburgs, violin concertos, passions and b-minor mass), but as to Butt's recordings as a keyboardist, there is a but(t) (pun of course intended), as they generally are quite unremarkable (WTC, and some Bach organ recordings as well as organ music by Cabanilles, Frescobaldi and Pachelbel). His Kuhnau btw is moderately interesting.

Not his trio sonatas?
I liked his Frescobaldi as well.

Any fans here of Alicia de Larrocha's recordings of his sonatas?  I've like the ones that I've heard of hers.

PD
Sorry, my goof, I had meant to ask about the concertos; I do have some of her recordings of them and enjoy them.

A worthy immersion piece!

It sure is, I love it, but I love all of these song cycles from Shostakovich.

Some amazing playing from Hamelin. (When is there not?)

I'd be eternally grateful to you, dear Karl, if you could explain me in no uncertain terms what is really so eccentric in preferring Mozart's sonatas to those of Beethoven's. One or two (or as many as you wish) objectively verifiable and falsifiable criteria would be most helpful.

I have to admit that Mozart's piano sonatas are for me his least interesting works. Their emotional and compositional range seem limited compared to most of his other output. Certainly limited compared to Beethoven.

That hasn't kept me from accumulating several sets, of which van Oort is my favorite overall.   I don't have anything from PBS outside of a couple of CDs he recorded for Gramola

Inbal's cycle has the same qualities, btw.

Ah yes, I have the Inbal cycle (somewhere). I should revisit some of it. He's not a conductor that flies under my radar too often.

Ah so he's the Slatkin of Mahler symphony cycles. ;) (Not that this is a bad thing at all of course.)

Inbal's cycle has the same qualities, btw.

Shibe's latest CD [Camino] is excellent.
