I've only recently bought the other set ... hmmmpf. Sucks if I have to buy much of the same again, but I'm definitely interested in more Schuricht.

The Beethoven yes, and it's great. Only started exploring Bruckner recently, have arrived at the second symphony, so no Schuricht there yet (but Icon is here).

I'm sure I enjoy the irony of that cover.

Thanks! Will give it a proper listen ASAP.

Quote
In addition to being one of the 20th century’s great conductors, Leopold Stokowski (1882-1977) devoted much energy to transcribing works of Johann Sebastian Bach, tailoring them to suit the very special qualities of the great Philadelphia Orchestra with which his name was synonymous. A sequence of albums for RCA in the 1970s marked Stokowski’s last recordings, and material from that period comprises the final title in this batch of Dutton Epoch SACD reissues.
1975’s Stokowski conducts Bach – The Great Transcriptions, recorded by Bob Auger at St. Giles’ Church, Cripplegate, London, includes, among others, orchestral versions of Chaconne (from Partita No. 2 in D minor for solo violin), Preludio (from Partita No. 3 in E major for solo violin) and Aria (Air on the G-String) (from Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major). Of the album’s final piece, Komm, süsser Tod, Stokwoski said, “This poignant and soul-searching melody was composed by Bach about 1736. It is one of the melodies published by Schemelli in his book of sacred songs, Musicalisches Gesangbuch. Bach edited the songbook, providing several of his own compositions and adding figured bass to other melodies. In giving this sublime melody orchestral expression, I have tried to imagine what Bach would do had he the rich resources of the orchestra of today at his disposal.” This release is completed by Stokowski’s arrangement of Brünnhilde’s Immolation, part of Wagner’s Götterdämmerung, the last of the cycle of four operas making up Der Ring des Nibelungen. Using RCA’s multi-track analogue masters from the 1974 sessions at Abbey Road Studios, Michael J. Dutton has created a superb new quadraphonic mix, and one that is a considerable improvement over the 1990s Dolby surround sound CD reissue.

  Wow, that gives me a giant flashback! My brother used to play that LP back in the 70s. Some of the first classical I ever heard. I haven't seen the cover (or heard it) since then.
It's all good...

This will be good news to those who missed out on the big EMI box that went OOP a few years ago.





40 CDs and 3 DVDs. The EMI set was 26 CDs and 2 DVDs. Curious to see what's new from the rest of the Warner archive.

Here's the link on JPC

Looks like the Takacs Quartet's Beethoven cycle is getting a remastering treatment similar to Kertesz's Dvorak.



Unlike the Kertesz, I though the audio quality of the original release was pretty good. I'm not sure how much the sound can be improved by remastering.

Still, the luxury box treatment would be nice, and very appropriate for such an esteemed cycle.

Drat, in that I bought 2/3 of the Takacs cycle not all that long ago. A year or so.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

This is an unusual gimmick:



One brother handles D. 899, the other brother handles D. 935, and then they do some duos.

Amazon.us already has it listed as unavailable.  Your posts must have caused a buy-a-thon depleting the inventory!

They're huge in the Netherlands and are actually not bad. This release is a few years old already though.

This is cool! They are terrific recordings, certainly worth the remaster and repackaging

For those who like such things. I don't think there's anything here that wasn't released the four big DG boxes over the past few years.
