Musicweb International Recommends

The lists on the linked pages are the favourite recordings of mostly major repertoire works, as recommended by members of our reviewing team (see below). There are no supporting comments - nomination to the list is sufficient recommendation.

Because of changes in availability and reissues, we have chosen not to provide catalogue number, only sufficient detail for you to be able to track it down:
- performers
- label
- year, where more than one version exists, e.g. Glenn Gould's Goldbergs from 1955 and 1981

Links to reviews will be provided only where the review is by the nominator. Where the site's review is by another person, it can be found in the Masterwork Index.

Selections (by composer): A-H ~~ I-Z
