interesting that two people have mentioned hovhaness. as a kid -- and this goes back 50 years -- i was enthralled by his Khaldis Concerto for piano and trumpets, with william masselos as i recall. i still find it one of hovhaness's most attractive pieces.at around the same time, or perhaps a bit later, i discovered helmuth rilling's nonesuch recordings of schutz's Symphoniae Sacrae, selections from books 1 and 2. despite being a compulsive collector of these works, i return repeatedly to rilling. they are more energetic and expressive than many of the more recent performances, and i count that as essential in schutz. as far as i know, these performances have never appeared on cd in america or europe, although i did manage to acquire the japanese disks on a visit to wave in tokyo in the 90s. schutz is definitely one of my favorites as well.
Willaim Baines- lived a very short life, managed to survive WWI, got the flu, never fully recovered and died in his early twenties. He wrote beautiful piano pieces of which very little is recorded. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mnsi6l3gpw&feature=related
