I have come to terms with no complete Markevitch box.

I have these:














(Only Symphony of Psalms is Markevitch)

I have on order




(Only Apollo is Markevitch)

And I plan to get downloads of these OOP releases


(Symphonie Fantastique + some smaller works)




(Only plan to download Harold in Italy).

Maybe I can snag a copy of the Beethoven 5 and 8 on the French release.

That, in conjunction with Murphy's Law, should be sufficient to precipitate a complete Markevitch edition from DGG/Decca, I think. :)
I especially like the Honegger DGG CD.

For me the most fascinating piece on the Milhaud/Honegger/Roussel is Les Choéphores. Milhaud wrote a lot of fluff, so I did not expect such a dark and strange piece from him. Although Bernstein's recording (w/ Roussel 3rd symph) is probably better, not least because of the sound.
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

Better sound but worse singers, with dreadful French accents.

The Wien Modern series was some of the best stuff Abbado recorded.

I keep stumbling across cheap stuff - Ligeti, Xenakis, Takemitsu and Ichiyanagi (I think) on this one.

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural

Don’t forget the Berlin Phil Pathétique. Great mono sound, incredible performance.
Or Markevitch conducting the Philharmonia in a stereo "Rite of Spring". On vinyl I don't think there is many better performances.

Christmas is the season...I went to Amazon to order a couple of things, and found every vendor is now only promising shipment in 6-12 days. So no Amazon purchases until after 12/25 I guess.

I found some wonderful gifts. Or they would have been, had I found them in October ...

I always wanted to get these two Chung/Vienna recordings of Dvorak's 3, 6-8, glad to see them bundled.

certainly enticing. Chung doesn’t seem to have followed up with the remainder, so that might be all the Dvorak we’ll get from him. My fave Dvorak symphony is no 6.
