    Here are my favorites. I produced these along with my good friend David Rawn. Ilya Itin's performances of both books were mesmerizing and I have not heard better recordings... ever. they were recorded simultaneously at Quad DSD and 1/2 Tape. Currently they are available on most DSD download sites including Superhirez.com and nativedsd.com In the near future we will be offering them on 45rpm vinyl and reel to reel tapes.

    “A beautiful recording, and only the 3rd solo piano record to make this list. It has the purity and immediacy of a direct-to-disc. The recording space is well captured, including the decays. The piano sounds extremely natural, and it has plenty of inner detail. The sound-floor is very low, so the music sounds "alive" even at the very softest volumes.

    The sound is also extremely dynamic, with no compression on either low or high notes, and (most satisfying for me) it is still clean at the highest volumes, being totally devoid of the usual strain and distortion you routinely hear on other piano LPs. This record is obviously a serious contender for the designation of "the finest solo piano LP", and I have heard many. It is a "must have" record for lovers of piano music, considering everything.”

    Moravec made at least two recordings of Debussy piano music
    for the Connoisseur Society label in the 1960s. These were
    produced by Alan Silver and are some of the best piano
    recordings available, notwithstanding their age. One of
    these LPs (CS 2010) was re-mastered and reissued by Athena
    Productions in a superb sounding pressing. If you ever see
    the Athena ALSY 10002 reissue LP, get it.
