what are some of you guys's favorite pianists and their recordings? i'd have to say for me:

kissin on rach3: it's out of this world

louis lortie on chopin etudes: i like it better than perehia for some reason

watts on saint-saens 2: something about andre watts, he's awesome

glenn gould on wt clavier: in my opinion the best bach interpreter ever

stephen kovacevich on beethoven sonatas

i'd appreciate your thoughts. thanks!
