Thanks, Eric, for the alert. Of course, Harry's insider info saved us all from going :o! ;D It's such a bitter-sweet release, especially for ardent fans: it's all in a box -- yet still incomplete.

I do not understand, I was told it would be complete when I told of this release several months ago :o

From what I remember, you told us the extant recordings were all going to be boxed up. Had you actually mentioned that they were planning to complete it, wouldn't we have see Gurn jump up in joy? ;D ;)

Noticed while browsing the JCP website last night (although I didn't click to find out the details) a listing for release on October 15 (in Germany, obviously)

Beethoven:  Complete String Quartets, Vol. 1
Belcea Quartet

So it looks like we have another cycle on the way....

You're welcome, Navneeth. Actually, Harry announced this re-release several months ago.  :)

Well, these are all the Haydn symphonies recorded by Hogwood, who has not recorded all the symphonies composed by Haydn. Hopefully, he will do it some day.  :)

As I see from the advert in Amazon France, it shows just 32 disks, which would mean that they still haven't put in the disk (now on BBC) with #76 & 77. Yes, Navneeth, you would  see me jump for joy. Might rattle a tectonic fault or two, but what's an earthquake vs that  :D

Right now, Brüggen & Co. working out on Schubert's Bb (2nd) Symphony. Nice little box here. :)

33 CDs according JPC: Symphonies Nos.1-75, 94, 96, 100, 107, 108. I think these are his complete recordings on Decca.

Astonishing that they would come so close to finishing the cycle, and stop (especially after most of the least-popular symphonies were already in the can).  I can only assume the Decca was teetering so close to insolvency that the extra sessions would have sent them to the liquidators.

Clarinet Quintet in A K581
Quintet fragments K581a, K580b, K516c
in completions by Robert Levin and Franz Beyer

Colin Lawson - Clarinet
The Revolutionary Drawing Room

Quote
Mozart created the medium of the Clarinet Quintet K581 by means of a process that involved a number of preliminary experimental fragments, all of which can also be heard on this disc. Like the Clarinet Concerto, the Quintet K581 was intended for Stadler’s basset clarinet in A, which was furnished with an additional four semitones at the bottom of the compass. Colin Lawson’s boxwood basset clarinet (modelled on Viennese instruments of the period) was especially created for him in 1988 by the Cambridge maker Daniel Bangham. For the Allegro in F K580b he plays the more brilliant clarinet in C and is joined by Michael Harris (basset horn). The Allegro K516c features the extremely rare Bb basset clarinet used elsewhere by Mozart only in the virtuoso obbligato to ‘Parto, parto’ from La Clemenza di Tito. Colin Lawson, described by BBC Music Magazine as ‘the doyen of period clarinettists’ explores Mozart’s original sound world in partnership with his colleagues from The Revolutionary Drawing Room.

Saw this one on the GMG 'Releases this Week' banner:



Looks very exciting indeed! Weilerstein's performance with Barenboim and the Berlin Phil of the Elgar I remember as being one of my favourite performances of the concerto, so I really look forward to hearing a recording of her performance!

Hogwood has the best #76 & 77, such a pity they did not include these!

I agree, it seems to be an excellent recording, Barenboim is a fine elgarian interpreter. I remember that performance you mentioned very well, Alisa Weilerstein is spectacular there indeed.

It was one of the ideals deals I considered for about 5 seconds. Memories of Barenboim's horrendous Elgar recording with his wife on the big fiddle gave me the willies!

New on Naxos!



The booklet of the Rihm CD includes an interview with the composer.

And on friends of Naxos!



The Mozart is 31, 33, 34 plus an early sketch of 31's andante. The Dorian CD is Weill's Violin Concerto, Ibert's Cello Concerto, and Berg's Chamber Concerto.

I'm definitely getting that Weinberg recording, Brian.
