Thanks for the alert! I'll be sure to find those in the coming days.

My preferred Faure right now is Heidsieck over Collard, just for the record.

Heard her Goldbergs today. She's very impressive. Nuanced and energetic interpretation without too much schmalz: very honest and effective. Good tone too, nice and round with no harshness at all.

My current favorites are also both women: Maria Tipo and Beatrice Rana. Both have a bit more to say than Crochet. Rana has even more sparkle in a very special, uplifting reading that never offends. She has a wonderful, light touch.
