The famous film of the young Martha Argerich playing Chopin's Polonaise N°6. I like her duff notes - none of them matter - and how she just walks off at the end. No Nigel Kennedy "forming a relationship with the audience" guff for her!

What are your favourites?

Has to be Glenn Gould playing the final fugue of the Art of Fugue:

As well as being astonishingly beautiful, he sure does manipulate those keys in a sensuous way. =D

Haha that comment sounds as though I was saying GG was astonishingly beautiful.

Arvo Pärt - Tabula Rasa - Miguel Robies.

Unfortunately, most of the Pärt videos on youtube are accompanied by truly awful interpretive dance and/or attempts at arty video.

I've put up a couple of audio only vids of Machaut recordings.

This is an instrumental called 'He! Dame de Valour', played by the Ferrara Ensemble. I absolutely love this.

And this is the Orlando Consort singing 'Rose, Lis, Printemps, Verdure' in a very smooth stylee.

Sue (Kniphofia) | 2 comments Hands down Karl Richter playing Bach's Toccata & Fugue in D Minor. Absolute master!
