I had the very good fortune to hear Ivan Moravec playing in a small, maybe 400 seat maximum, setting,it was a converted 3 car garage with a raised stage in the back, treated for acoustics. It was the nearest to what it might have been to be at a Salon. Look especially for Debussy's Images both books. His playing of Debussy was absolutely magical. Not certain if it is necessarily on audiophile quality but the playing is most definitely so. Walter Giesekin is also very good and his LP's of Book's 1 and 2 of Debussy's Preludes are worth listening to as well.
