I thought people here might be interested in this edition of Radio 3's Building a Library, where an expert reviewer chooses - in his opinion - the best available recording of a work.

The spotlight today is Freddy's Scherzi (starting at 31:00):

Do you agree with his opinions - not just of his ultimate choice, but also with his assessments of various pianists' interpretations?


"I don't play accurately - anyone can play accurately - but I play with wonderful expression. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life."

I do not know SH recording, but lack of Samson Francois is very bad, as both his Scherzos and Ballades could be called non plus ultra.

Earl Wild made a wonderful Scherzos recording as well.
