Pretty cool B. That is a great idea 1hz for exactly seeing what is going on in your room. For those who don't have this cd, here are some links that might still work well for you.

Got the Nordost 2 disc CD set from a local audio shop.  Interesting test CD for speaker placement and performance.  Love the bass tracks starting at 20Hz in 1 Hz increments up to 120. Drivers really move and rear port air pressure pretty awesome

Jackson Berkey did another classical album for American Gramaphone called Sunken Cathedral. If you like Ballade, you should check that one out as well.

Jackson Berkey "Ballade" on the American Grammaphone label.  Most know the label from the Mannheim Steamroller recordings (of which I'm not a fan), but they take the productions seriously and produce high quality recordings and pressings. 
This is a compilation of Debussey, Rachmaninoff, and Satie short pieces that very well recorded.  If you've got the speakers, you can put the concert grand convincingly in your living room.  It's hard to get the lower octaves and the reverb of a big grand right, the this recording does.
And on top of that, the performance is romantic and personal... enough to make you listen to music you may be very familiar with. 
AND..... vinyl copies are cheap.  Not often can you find quality for the price of a hamburger and fries.
