Federico Mompou - Impresiones Intimas - Played by Lazare Lévy
I found this while looking for recordings of Lazare Lévy's playing. I have to admit that Mompou isn't a composer I think of even once a year but this set of pieces is quite beautiful and it shows in non-virtuoso music what a great, great musician and pianist Lévy was.
Update: I will mention that this performance was issued two years ago on the Meloclassic label which apparently specializes in releasing recordings by great performers which were not previously released. If I won the lottery I'd probably order all of them.
