I've only fitfully been tracking the Hyperion Bach-***** series of piano CD's, and haven't made it to the volume played by Vlaeva. I like to play though a few of the Saint-SaŽns transcriptions myself sometimes (some of them aren't so hard), and the transcriptions of Isidore Philipp are of interest too because he was such an accomplished pedagogue. I'm sure I'm not the only one who suffered through Philipp's "Exercises for Independence of the Fingers" during my formative years of piano study! (I inflicted them on my students too!) ;-)
p.s.: interesting customer post on Amazon, comparing Dinnerstein unfavorably to Vlaeva.
