My old computer was *very slow* and I couldn't listen to any music. My new computer is quite fast and I can listen to music. I've already discovered the joys of youtube and must have more than 50 pianists in my favorites list.

But what are the best sites for recordings of piano music without videos?

Thanks!

I had paid suscriptions with two sites. However, now I only have a suscription with Naxos.

Classical archives has midi as well as live performances.

I like Naxos Radio available through the Naxos site listed above. You have a choice of several piano only channels.

Actually, he was originally asking for websites with music WITHOUT video.

I get tons of great piano, mixed in with other stuff, from the CM web radio sites, like the one for BBC Radio 3, which conveniently keeps everything online for seven days (and they recently improved their formerly atrocious audio bitrate a little, so it is somewhat more pleasurable to listen).

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio3/

And there are many many more from which to choose. Here's a site that lists many CM web radio stations.

http://classicalwebcast.com/

Plus, there are a lot of interesting live performances archived at the site of the Martha Argerich Project.

And check out Thiago Trevisan, too... (though he doesn't post here nearly as much as he used to.)

I will check out his recordings, thanks Sam.

Did you see Hugh Sung up there? He plays some really nice Chopin.

I'll have a listen to Hugh Sung, if the website will ever load on my computer! (Anyone else having trouble with Piano Society?)

If you click on Radio in iTunes, there are a number of broadcasts, not necessarily all piano, but there is a variety, sorted by genre.

Just remember that the best site for listening to piano music is from the seat of your piano. After that come your nearby concert halls or other places where you can hear music live.

I have free access to Naxos from my school. It has an enormous selection.

Here's one I'm listening to right now.

http://www.icebergradio.com/#player/40071

It can get a bit repetitious, but overall very good recordings, a nice selections, and an emphasis on Glenn Gould. There are also other channels offered on the site.
