Paul Bley -- Solo Piano
Brad Mehldau - Live Ten Years Solo
Oh forgot the killer classical double-CD:

Richter -- J.S.Bach Well Tempered Klavier on German CD.
The following two recordings are out of print, but may be findable.  The major work on each is Chopin's wonderful Piano Sonata No. 3, Op. 58:

"Chopin," pianist Edward Auer, RCA Japan RDCE-7 (direct-to-disc LP).

"Music of Chopin," pianist Hyperion Knight, on CD as Wilson Audio WCD-9129.  I believe it was also issued on LP.

Also, if performances on an early 19th century fortepiano meet your criteria, I would highly recommend any of the recordings by Paul Badura-Skoda on the French Astrée label.  I have several that were issued on LP ca. 1980.

ZUIO, are you looking for CD, LP, or hi-rez/SACD?
Nightfall, on the Naim label, while not quite solo, has one of the best piano sounds I've heard captured in a recording.  Very real.  You get Charley Hayden thrown in on upright bass for free. The music is a bit too much "new-age noodling" for my taste, but the piano sound is superb.  Available on vinyl, cd or download.  
One good option is to find labels where the house sound is of high quality (or at least one you like) -- that way you have lots of choices

Two that come to mind that I like are

1) Steinway, for example Bach on a Steinway
2) Hyperion, for example Angela Hewitt

Or for a more audiophile minimalist option Ito Ema Goldberg Variations on M*A recordings

Thank you all so far. Btw my preferred format is digital download.
One of the all time best in the jazz category, and any jazz fan knows it, is Herbie Hancock Piano. Prepare to be blown away. sbank above suggested Brad Mehldau which is another excellent recommendation in the jazz category.
Although a couple of these have already been mentioned, they're among my favorite solo piano recordings:

Jazz:  Bill Evans - "The Solo Sessions, Vol. 1" (on vinyl) probably my favorite for relaxing life-like piano
+1 for Herbie Hancock, Piano
Michel Camilo - "Solo"

Classical: Mieczyslaw Horszowski - "Piano Sonatas" (well recorded CD)
Frederic Chopin -  "Complete Nocturnes & Impromptus" CD  

Doubt it's on download, but the VAI CDs of Moravec playing Chopin (originally Connoisseur Society recordings) are uniformly excellent, sonically and artistically.  I'll also second the Nojima recordings mentioned above by Newbee.
The Stereophile recordings with Robert Silverman are all very well recorded. I'm not a huge fan of his playing style but the piano sounds very true to my ears. Another favorite for both sound and performance is Uchida's live Mozart recording from the early 90s--very creamy and realistic piano tone and phenomenal artistry. Simone Dinerstein's Goldbergs are pretty well done as well. And I second the Moravec Chopin which was released as a two CD set and sounds pretty darn good but the playing is superb.
Now that Herbie Hancock and Bill Evans got mentioned, let me add Keith Jarrett. Unusual and unique style, his "The Kohln Concert" (ECM 1064/65) was the recording of the month at Stereophile mag, and as any other ECM offering it is definitely "audiophile" quality!!! Obsessing with Audiophilia: Silverman at Stereophile label got mentioned, let me add Alan Gambel "Chopin and Liszt Piano Sonatas" on Mapleshade, CD 07382. I spent quite a few bucks on Mapleshade hardware after listening to their CDs! Unique sound, I daresay even better than Naim and Linn offerings.
My understanding is that you are trying to "voice" your rig. Thats how I do it also, on solo piano.
XRCDs beat SACDs in my room. Get "Emil Gilels - Beethoven: Sonaten" here:
or Richter here:
"Highest Standard of performance" is a bit too subjective: Richter playing makes me cry, Rubinstein or Horowitz kick me into a different realm. Check out "Steinway Legends" on Amazon and choose your poison! Downloadable at but usually its cheaper to buy off Amazon and rip.
