These are as close to Heaven as I, atheist that I am, will ever get- -

L. van Beethoven: Piano Sonata in A major, Op. 101 & Piano Sonata in E major, Op. 109



Nice.  I too am a lover of those late sonatas.  Have you heard the Esoteric SACD remastered Pollini set?  Pollini is not normally a pianist you'd associate with subtlety, but the somewhat better sound lets you hear that he's actually bringing some nuance to all the power and precision:

No I haven't. Thanks for the suggestion; I'll investigate.

I think the same basic master was used for the 28-32 set in 24/96 download here  https://www.prostudiomasters.com/search?cs=1&q=pollini#quickview/album/10807

I have both, each one sounds good.

I only have a few Ricercar Consort cds - and nothing on lp - but I enjoy the cds I do have and plan to acquire additional soon.

This is now my favorite version of this group of standards.  Originally on a non US Columbia (Brit, Aussie?) in 1966.  Reissued by Hi-Q records from original masters at Abbey Road Studio.  Hi-Q reportedly has quality consistency issues, but not with this pressing. 

Andre' Cluytens  Capriccio Espagnol ,  Borodin  Steps of Central Asia,  Night on Bald Mountain, Ravel  La Valse   
Stunning sound, and I haven't yet had a chance to put it on my main system.
