Then the DVD archive had the John Bell Young recordings.

1st saw his name at the University of South Florida on a sign for a master class, in 1997. Didn't think much of it. Saw it again on mp3.com, in 2000. What outstanding recordings he made of Scriabin & Schumann. It was a rich, relaxed sound, deep into the keys. It was disappointing more high quality recordings weren't made. Always wondered how he played Chopin Etude Op.10 #1 so fast. Perhaps he left out a lot of notes.
