I've been listening to various pianists play Chopin's Ballad No.1 and think this performance is my favorite.

Music. One of man's greatest inventions. And...for me, the piano expresses it best.

Incredible. He plays the opening part with such sensitivity.

I always liked Zimerman's and Pollini's performances better, but there's not such thing as a bad Richter performance. (And there are no exceptions.)
Also, Horowitz's is sometimes a bit unusual, but in certain points he has some beautiful nuances that you can't hear in any other performance, so you should try listening to it. (Never mind which one.)
