The Tokyo I was aware of, but this is the first I've heard of the Ormandy. I have his Shosty 14 on LP and quite like it, but overall I would rather have seen a Szell box.

L.v.Beethoven
Complete String Quartets
Tokyo String Quartet
(First Cycle)
RCA


That was my first LvB Quartet cycle... and I think it got lost in one of the moves. Probably in a transatlantic M-Bag.
If I ever feel the need to replace it, it's good to know it won't cost an arm and a leg.

How's that Tokyo Beethoven? Comp/contrast with the harmonia mundi Tokyo Beethoven, anyone?

Isabelle Faust is completing her solo Bach:

I like some of the early quartets in the HM Tokyo Cycle, but the late ones I wasn't happy with it at all. Memory doesn't serve me well enough to remember the finer interpretative points of the first cycle, but the technical aspects were better handled. But of course part of the reason for the second cycle was that they now play on one of the two Stradivari SQ4t sets that the Nippon Foundation bought for them when the Corcoran Gallery had a bake-sale of all their musical instruments.

I have been considering getting one of these individual discs for ages, but now it looks like I waited so long that they put them all together in a set!

Be kind to your fellow posters!!

I've just been playing this. Disc 1 (in the listening thread) and Saturday disc 3 (Cramer; new to me) and a reasonably lightweight Schubert Trout (compared to more traditional, romantic versions). Great value this set (I have disc 2 as a single issue from before, so it's not a priority to play that again, but it is very fine).

I missed that! Although, the release comes out in another month in the US, so I still feel I was in the right thread at the time. But now I am stuck somewhere in between. :)

Erato, that's pretty comprehensive (includes 'La parade') although I guess I'm going to have to assume that the several very early Ravel works listed on Wikipedia (including a set of variations on Grieg's Ase's Death) must be lost.

This September, Naxos begins a series of the Villa-Lobos symphonies!



These also look intriguing.

So CPO will no longer be the only game in town.  And Sao Paulo, too.... have they moved to Naxos from BIS?

I like his complete Dowland very much (now issued on Brilliant).   This should be rewarding.

Sao Paulo moved from BIS to Naxos I think because of the conductor situation - the departure of John Neschling and the arrival of Marin Alsop.

And I actually listened to the Lindberg disc already! Click

So I saw.  I had the same reaction to the cover photo, btw.

A.) Finally. I've long maintained that, uneven as the music is, the CPO performances don't do the music justice -- and are played based on scores that -- so I've been told -- are not particularly accurate or good. Now we can see hear if that was indeed the case.

The Sao Paulo Orchestra Association (OSESP), which is much more than just an orchestra, has collected, edited, and issued the new (as for now definitive) scores of these symphonies and they long had plans to make recordings of them. Glad to see that come to fruition, at last.

B.) "Moved to NAXOS" -- it's all a matter of who is willing to release the music for them... and Brian is right: As Alsop moved down there (http://ionarts.blogspot.com/2011/02/side-notes-marin-alsop-nova-regente-em.html) it made it Naxos an obvious choice. Good as far as distribution is concerned -- they'll reach more people. Perhaps a minor step down as far as label-reputation is concerned.

Steven Isserlis and Thomas Ades have a cello/piano recital disc coming out on Hyperion that looks quite interesting to me:

Turns out that Wagner box is one of a series


(not just operas--includes a piano concerto and two chamber works for all three of which Solti was the pianist)


If you want complete listings, go to Prestoclassical and input "Solti Edition" for the search
