    I stumbled upon some RussianDVD links that play complete random tracks from two CD's with Nikolai Kapustin playing his own works. Absolutely mindblowing pianism ! He gives every conventional virtuoso pianist a run for his/her money. Probably one of the most unique composer-pianists of these times.

    I forgot the links but if you go to www.ebay.com and do a search on "kapustin" you see them on the first page (with cover images of the composer). Enjoy.

    On YouTube, the Giuseppi Andoloro performance of the Jazz Etude No. 3 is excellent too.

    Though I generally like Andaloro in the romantic and late-romantic repertoire, I find his Kapustin overpedaled and lacking of clarity. IMO much better, among the less known pianists on YT, Valeria Vetruccio: http://it.youtube.com/watch?v=sN0xQL4JhEY. And I am sure you'll love this one: http://www.valeriavetruccio.com/audio/bis.mp3
