Classic FM Conversation: Sawallisch & Van Cliburn - the best recordings?

We're paying tribute to two classical legends Wolfgang Sawallisch and Van Cliburn. Tell us what you think are their best recordings.

Wolfgang Sawallisch

In recent weeks, two giant figures in classical music passed away, German conductor Wolfgang Sawallisch and the American pianist Van Cliburn. Many of their works now considered reference recordings, and on Sunday David Mellor celebrated their incredible contributions to the classical record catalogue.

We would like to ask you – is there any recording from either of these legendary artists that has a personal connection to you? What do you consider their finest album? Let us know in the comments section below.
