Best Classical Pianists – Vladimir Ashkenazy

In this video I am speaking about Vladimir Ashkenazy (born July 6 1937), who is a Russian pianist.

His recordings I really like and suggest: Shostakovich – Preludes and Fugues, 2nd and 3nd piano concerto by Rachmaninoff, Ballades and Scherzos by Chopin. Everything, that he has recorded :)
