Year's best lists

A couple of the year's best listings have caught my eye. Robert Gable at aworks provides a top ten list of "mind-bending recordings this year" and says Player Piano 1: Conlon Nancarrow Vol. 1. by Jurgen Hocker is "probably the best CD of the year." Alex Ross likes Peter Lieberson's "Neruda Songs" (which also gets a very strong recommendation from Donald Rosenberg at the Cleveland Plain Dealer) and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra recording of Magnus Lindberg's Clarinet Concerto, which is available on Emusic.
