Additions to my list (as you can see, I've been on a  Schumann kick, with a focus on Dichterliebe):

Ten favorite SOLO PIANO recordings (for today, in no particular order):

61lNvjs0rVL._SY355_.jpg

Ives: Piano Sonata No. 2 "Concord" / Marc-André Hamelin (New World)

 

81Y7fxb2B4L._SX355_.jpg

Chopin: Nocturnes / Ivan Moravec (Supraphon)

 

71dl%2B5%2BGIKL._SX355_.jpg

Rachmaninov: Preludes / Vladimir Ashkenazy (Decca)

 

51Zm455iy1L._SX355_.jpg

Scriabin: Piano Works / Alexander Melnikov (Harmonia Mundi)

 

61wrJS7cMwL._SY355_.jpg

Schubert: Piano Sonatas D958 & D959 / Maurizio Pollini (DG)

 

51G1jG2k2ZL._SY355_.jpg

Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Nos. 26 "Les Adieux", 27, and 29 "Hammerklavier" (Testament)

 

71H8UuqkSuL._SS355_.jpg

Brahms: Piano Works / Peter Rösel (Edel)
This is a bit of a cheat, since it's a 5-disc set.  ... So if I were to pick one CD from the set, I'd likely go with Disc 3 - with the 3rd Piano Sonata, the Schumann Variations, and 4 Piano Pieces, Op. 119.

 

515nPm7PCBL._SY355_.jpg

Haydn: Three Piano Sonatas, etc. / Alfred Brendel (Philips)

 

Schumann_Anda_DG_355.png

Schumann: Davidsbündlertänze, Kreisleriana / Géza Anda (DG)

 

61EZXrfn1xL._SX355_.jpg

Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Nos. 15 "Pastoral", 29, 20, 24, and 25 / Rudolf Buchbinder (Teldec)

Well, here are ten I've listen to most in the last year. I guess do I enjoy them. I have to be considerate of what my family can tolerate, so more ugly / noisy stuff (that I enjoy just as much) is played less frequently. 

J.S. Bach - Cello Suites - Ophelie Gaillard (Aparte)

J.S. Bach - Cafe Zimmermann - Concerts avec plusieurs instruments (6-CD box) (Alpha)

J.S. Bach - Six Suites (Piano) - Irma Issakadze (Oehms)

Johann Molter - Trumpet and Clarinet Concertos (Coviello Classics) - unexpectedly good baroque composer 

C.P.E. Bach - Piano Works - Ana-Marija Markovina (26-CD box) (Hänssler) 

C.P.E. Bach - Concertos & Symphonies (two volumes) - Berliner Barock Solisten (Deutsche Harmonia Mundi)

Sylvius Leopold Weiss - The Famous Weiss. Solo Lute Works - David Miller (Timespan Recordings) - mikeweil will say these are no good, and he is probably right, but what can I do, I still love them 

Morton Feldman - For Bunita Marcus (piano) - Ivan Ilic (Paraty)

Georg Friedrich Haas - In Vain - Klangforum Wien (KAIROS)

Pascal Dusapin - Quartets 6 & 7 - Arditti Quartet (aeon)
