Sorry to post this here as I can not remember nor find what i was looking for by using the search. Did you post the score to aleandrovs 14th piano sonata Alfor. It is not in the book of his sonatas i scanned long ago? this book only had sonatas 2-13.

Otar TAKTAKISHVILI
Concerto for violin and orchestra in F minor
Violin concertos are among my favourite musical genres (especially if in a late-romantic or mild comtemporary idiom)

Sigfrid GRUNDEIS (German pianist, 1900-1953, especially praised for his Liszt playing)
Liszt: Wilde Jagd
Ravel: Jeux d'eau

Denis MATTHEWS (fine British pianist; was chosen by Edwin Fischer to participate in recordings of Bach concertos)
John Field: Nocturne in E minor, Nocturne in E major "midi" in rondo form
both have a pretty nostalgic flavour

from original shellacs:
Claudio ARRAU
Liszt: Rhapsodie espagnole (rec 1933)
Rudolph GANZ
Liszt: the inevitable Liebestraum No. 3
Monique HAAS
Bach: Italian concerto mvts. 1 & 2 (beautiful, but a bit "unexiting" reading by a wonderful sensitive - but never sentimental - pianist; probably from a tape recording of the early 1950s; you may not believe it, but shellac discs have been sold up to the early 1960s!!)

Eileen JOYCE
Chopin Ballade op. 47 (from original shellac)
Born in 1912 in a tent in Tasmania to British parents, J. was one of the finest ever women pianists. http://www.mediafire.com/alfor (folder: Alfor's recordings)

Alfred CORTOT
Weber: Aufforderung zum Tanz op. 65 (from original shellac)

Like Mussorgsky's "Pictures" this piece is wider known in the orchestral version (Berlioz).
In either case I prefer the original versions (another legendary recording of the Weber
by Arthur Schnabel will be posted later)
