Re: my GG bias, but...

 check out murray perahia's Goldberg variations...they're absolutely beautiful. he does all the repeats too, which makes for a real voyage the way Bach intended. Real first class artistry.

Hello List,

I know that GG's recordings of composers other than
Bach deserve just as much praise, but I know his Bach
the best.

I'm interested in exploring recordings of Bach's works
by other pianists. I don't know if it's just my GG
bias, but the few pianists that I have listened to, I
haven't been entirely impressed or moved by.

Can you recommend any recordings by pianists whom you
think can almost be on par with GG?

I did say 'almost' :)

Thanks very much.
