    Default Realistic Recordings of Piano

    Do you have an album or album track on which the sound of the piano seems particularly realistic? We all have our own preferences, of course, say for the harder sound from next to the piano or the more reverberant sound from the 15th row of a lovely recording hall, but what recordings sound most like a real piano to you?

    I'll start:

    Mozart: Piano Quartets, Beaux Arts Trio
    Horowitz at Home, tracks: the Mozart sonata
    Horowitz at the Met, tracks: Scarlatti sonatas

    Add this too:
    Debussy Preludes & l'Isle Joyeuse by Maurizio Pollini on DGG 458 187-2.
    A well made very natural piano recording, imho.
