That's a really good idea, Peter.
For sheer beauty of sound I've liked the Glenn Gould recordings of the Bach violin sonatas, played with Jaime Laredo, issued by SONY.
hmmm,, let's see about finding some YouTube.
Your results will differ with the quality of your computer's speaker system, and since I own the CD's I can say that the sound of them is better than YouTube. I remember the evening when I first heard this on the radio. I was in the weekly chat room many years ago (I remember Don Mannino was there, too) and I talked with a lot of excitement about "ear candy."
I believe these were recorded in Toronto in Eaton Auditorium, and the Steinway D was Gould's favorite, before it was dropped, never to be the same again. That Ted Sambell had tuned for them at Stratford in its early days was also a bonus for me.
YouTube has added some damned advertising, which wasn't there the last time I listened.
In my opinion, the soundtrack for the movie " Nomadland" probably has the most evenly well-voiced, and exquisitely tuned piano I've heard to date. That all being said, much credit needs to be given to the recording engineers and their techniques used for this recording. There have been a lot of great pianos used by various artists which exhibit some incredible talent from our technical community. But unfortunately, much gets lost and covered in the recording techniques. On the " Nomadland" recording, pay close attention to the consistency in the articulation of each note. There is a clear, defined tonal element where all of the partials are perfectly balance. That is voicing to the highest degree.

Here's another, newly found this morning. One of my favorite pianists, Simon Trpceski, but this one had slipped past me till today. Prokofiev 3.
Very beautifully voiced and tuned. Stands up to heavy playing and stays immaculate. The octave stretch is elegant and exactly matches the orchestra, which luckily also plays very well in tune. The high end stretch makes my ear very happy while still matching the orchestra.
And the regulation is obviously excellent.
