How about this for authenticity - Jorg Demus recorded this piano sonata on Beethoven's actual piano! Obviously, being a couple of hundred years old the tone is a little more honky-tonk than concert hall, but Demus' fantastic interpretation brings out the colours and lets us hear it as it would've sounded to the composer himself.
