Format: Audio CD
There is no better recorded performance of the op. 58 sonata out there and the sound is quite decent. You want excitement? Listen to the last movement! The recording quality of the funeral march sonata is horrible, but there is much to admire in the first two movements--he is flabby in the funeral march, though. The mazurkas have good recording and Op. 7 #2 is particularly fine with a percussive bass. Some do not care for Kapell's sometimes off-beat bass, a habit he learned from his teacher Olga Samarov, but the man was an artist to the core and these performances are a strong but sad testament to what we lost in the 1953 plane crash.

I'm emending my original report. Horowitz's recorting of of the Chopin op. 35 sonata is emblematic, but despite the bad sound on this recording, I have to credit Kapell.

Plus there's a killer version of op. 50 #3 Mazurka to close it out. Looks like this CD is out of current production but well worth the search.
