Maybe the best recording of this piece I've ever heard, both as a function of the musicality of the playing and the sound quality of the recording itself:

Shine on, you crazy, bowtie-loving diamond you smile.
Beethoven - Op.49 No.1 (sonata 19)
Czerny - Op.299 Nos. 5,7 (School of Velocity)
Liszt - S.172 No.2 (Consolation No.2)

Dream piece:
Rachmaninoff - Sonata 2, movement 2 in E minor

My impressions of this recording: Love the dynamics and tone, troubled by some of the tempo changes. Felt strange at times, but also beautiful at times.

That Horowitz recording is special - my favourite recording though is from one of Josef Hofmann's live Casimir Hall recitals:

One thing I think is undeniable is that these old recordings from this era have a certain charm that isn't present anymore on modern recordings. More adventurous.
