These are two of my favorites.

One serious -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pR6kpZzOGdo (the great Grigory Sokolov, winner of the 1966 Tchaikovsky Competition, playing the technically impossible "Tic-Tac-Chock" of Couperin); and

One,well, not-so-serious -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifKKlhYF53w

Have fun.

My favourite:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXCeVQgSSik

(It's only part one, but the other installments should show up next to this video.)

Just look at that effortless technique: thundering octaves, sweeping arpeggios, perfectly voiced chords, and truly sovereign musicianship. As I have said before, when the history books about great 20th century pianists are written, this pianist will be mentioned.

(BTW, she learned this concerto in three weeks, but "I didn't have to" according to a BBC documentary wherein she speaks in beautiful English. She was just a bit disorganized and didn't realize time was running out!)

Jeffrey Biegel, what do you think?

Make sure you check out Pierre-Laurent Aimard on Youtube! I am internet illiterate and just discovered youtube. Aimard is my favorite pianist, and I instantly looked him up with hopes. It looks like hes playing an entire program! Schumann symphonic etudes! Boulez sonata 1! a few debussy preludes! I was overwhelmed \:D

Just type Ivo Pogorelich in the search box. \:\)

These videos recommended by the members are gold too. Good choice.

Is my favorite at this moment. An awesome rendering by Kocsis of the Bartók Sonata in E. (Which I -not completely by coincidence- am studying now).

I suppose the piano had a mind of its own.

Search for "Kissin Tchaikovsky"--Evgeny Kissin plays the Tchaikovsky concerto: amazing!

Then, "Pollini Mozart"--Pollini plays the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major.

"Pletnev Rachmaninoff"--The Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

"Arrau Beethoven" for the Waldstein and Beethoven 5.

"Gould Goldberg" for the Goldberg variations.
"Horowitz Rachmaninoff" or "Bronfman Rachmaninoff" for two great performances of the Rach 3.
