From Perotin to Prokofiev (and beyond), performed by Caruso to Khatia, it's all here.

Igor Levit's "Encounter" album

Just by chance, I was listening to part of that album day before yesterday - but the tracks I gravitated toward were the Busoni transcriptions of the Brahms Op. 122 Chorale Preludes (originally for organ), and the piano solo transcriptions of the Brahms Vier ernste Gesange (originally for voice and piano) Op. 121. I kept right on going for the Reger "Nachtlied" transcription for solo piano, which I'd not heard before and which I thought was incredibly beautiful (in the manner of Brahms).

I can enjoy Feldman's music when I'm in the right mood, but I guess the mood wasn't right night before last, since I lasted only about two or three minutes. I may give it another go soon.
