Best Hamelin Recordings

Marc-Andre Hamelin is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest virtuosi alive, and has recorded all manner of pieces. I would like to enquire as to the personal preferences of this group with regard to this Canadian master?

My own favourite recordings of his:

Alkan's Symphonie pour Piano Seul; Concerto pour piano seul; Le Festin d'Esope.
Liszt's Sonata H-moll
Saint-Saens' Piano concerto no. 2, third movemnet.

That last piece he performs unassailably.

Hi everyone, would you help me improve? :)

Hi, musical composition is my favorite pastime but I know I do not do it very well. Could you help me improve by giving me your criticism, advice and anything else I can learn from? I would really appreciate it: D
These are my tracks :D

The Virtuoso Piano Discussion-Contest! (2)

As promised, albeit delayed, this is the second contest! I'm not calling the second "week" because I will extend the period to nearly two weeks because I will be away for a period of time, but nevertheless, the competition ensues. The contest is created as a personal quest to find challenging music (and still in the realms of playability) that is technically sound and/or emotionally charged, and also as a platform for virtuoso pianist/composers to show off their skill. Here are a few rules:

1. Instrument: Piano Solo only
2. Duration of piece: Maximum of 7 minutes
3. Style of piece that is allowed this week: Fugue and/or Toccata
4. Only one piece per person per style
5. Leave the link in the comment below
6. It cannot be a transcription (obviously).

The deadline of the contest will be on the 22/12, 1400 hours (GMT)

The songs submitted must be as hard/equal in difficulty to the songs below:

(Fugue)
Nightmare Scherzo (Piano Sonata no. 1 mov. 2) by Mason K. Ichida
https://musescore.com/masonishida/scores/4315251

(Toccata)
Toccata or "Rush Hour", from Cityscape, movement 1, by kenneth.r.t.

SCORES RATED ABOVE 4.5:
ChrisHill - Etude no. 4 in F-Sharp Minor, "Inflexion"
https://musescore.com/user/3766071/scores/5194907

Challenges of the "week" will be in the comment below, soon to be posted. I sincerely apologize for using my score as a challenge for the competition, however there seems to be a lack of hard original fugues that I think would be a good standard for the competition. I did comb through listening to a few pages worth of original fugues, and toccatas were even harder to find.

The winner of the previous week was ChrisHill, a hearty congratulations! For those who are able to obtain above 4.5 from me in this competition, his/her score will be posted as above for the next week. The score with the highest rating for the competition will win the competition!

Resident Evil 2 and 3 Final Boss Themes for Solo Piano

 Hi. I want to share my first arrange with you. I made a rearranged  version for solo piano of the "Nemesis Final Metamorphosis" and "Mr.X  Super Tyrant" themes from Resident Evil 2 and 3. I will aprecciate your  thoughts because this is my first work.

Piano, clarinet, violin and drums

Does anybody know a popular popsong that sound good with a piano, clarinet, violin and drums? I've already played 'Like I Can' from Sam Smith and I'm looking for something similar. 
If you know a song, please let me know. If you have the sheetmusic from it for a piano, clarinet and violin (I don't need it for the drums) then it would be totally awesome. Thank you in advance.
