2. Rachmaninov: The Piano Concertos – André Previn, London Symphony Orchestra & Vladimir Ashkenazy

“To be honest there’s only one part of this record that I listened to very very often: The third piano concerto of Sergei Rachmaninov. This particular performance -with pianist legend Vladimir Ashkenazy, the amazing London Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Andre Previn- equals perfection for me. Impossibly well played and one of the most beautiful pieces ever written.”

3. Michael Jackson – Off the Wall

“I would have a hat on my head and secretly dance in my room as a teenager.  Why? Michael Jackson. The songs, the productions and arrangements, wow.”

4. Keith Jarrett – Facing you

“The first solo piano record I heard of Keith Jarrett. It blew me away. His improvisations, technique and phrasing. Although I didn’t listen to the album anymore in the last past years, it had such a big impact at the time that it really deserves a place in my album top 5.”

5. The Beatles – Abbey Road

“The songs, the production, the sound. This album is an amazing journey from start to end. A true masterpiece. They managed to get the full 100% out of each song.”
