Following the first Chamber Prom, I would be interested in hearing the members’ opinions and preferences. We can talk about it in four categories:
1.Historical: you may not recommend it as the DC to buy but the performance(s) worth listening to for various reasons.
2.Recordings of currently (or almost currently) active performers. I think we can keep the question of availability as extra information.
3.On the piano: as the preferred or ‘could be recommended’ performance but let’s leave out the ‘I can’t stand it’
4.Arrangements and curiosities
All or any.
I am still holding on to Trevor Pinnock’s 1980 recording but if/when Mahan Esfahani releases his, I shall definitely buy it.
