Hi Guys,

I have heard a variety of recordings now of Suite Bergamasque by Debussy, from Richter to Nelson Friere.  Does anybody have a top 3 of the best recordings/interpretations of this peice?

Thanks for your help

Richter and Freire. Weissenberg's is worth checking out, his passepied is a bit too aggressive though.

Arrau is transcendental. I also like Fergus-Thompson. Most othts are way too fast. Blechacz does the Clair the Lune in little more than 4 min.  Arrau takes almost 7min. The result is pure bliss.
