Antonin Dvorak--Complete Symphonic Works {Box Set} featuring the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra led by Vaclav Neumann.

I have that on order too! I'm excited for it. Just so you're not disappointed, although the box has the complete symphonies, it does not have the complete music for orchestra. So we won't be getting the Slavonic Dances, Czech Suite, and various other things. But there are 8 CDs of goodies!

@ Brian, I am very excited for the both of us. I really only wanted his complete symphonic cycle anyway.

Went by the in-mall CD/DVD store (FYE), which has both used CDs and new ones, and got one of each.

Czech psalms originally written for voice and piano by Dvorak and orchestrated by someone else,  Sheherazade, and Ruckert Lieder



Naturally, I've already played this one.  Like the Ninth; the 10-Adagio is just okay.

And I got an email from Amazon finally that the Dvorak set and the new Naive Vivaldi release (the Op. 1 Trio Sonatas) now have an expected delivery date of 16-24 May.  The third item on the order,  Biondi's CD of concertos from La Stravanganza,  was finally shipped a couple of days ago and arrived today via Priority US mail.
Every kind of music is good, except the boring kind.

For some reason ArkivMusic, Presto, and MDT are all having massive Hyperion sales at the same time. So I supped plenteously, and added a couple more bits and bobs.







The hard-to-read ones: Raphael Ensemble's Schubert string quintet; 'Casals encores' with Alban Gerhardt; Dorati's Kodaly, Beaux Arts' Schubert; a 7CD Vivarte box of Haydn symphonies featuring Tafelmusik and Bruno Weil ($24 at Arkiv!).

Just placed the following small order with an Amazon MP vendor this morning to fill in some gap in my Haydn collection ...

I cannot believe you would not want the Slavonic Dances!

That was a genius move on Supraphon's part, I think. It includes enough to make it a mandatory purchase, and is cheap enough for you to consider buying Neumann's slavonic dances seperately :-*

I bought this set many months ago, but have only finally started ripping it. And to my delight, each booklet is in the box!! Remarkable! The CPE Bach cello concertos that start the box off are excellent. I don't know if JPC still have this at a good price, but so glad I jumeped on it! Thanks Harry!

Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

It's a great set and the booklets are most welcome. BIS did the same with the four boxes of Suzuki's cantata cycle - vols 1-40.  Now that vol 50 has been released I hope they'll issue box 5 with vols 41-50.

Honestly, I'm not all that familiar with them. I'll take your hint/advice and listen to them on Spotify to see--or rather, hear--exactly what I've been missing. Thanks for the heads up on this!

Stück - Tirannique Empire... / Novelli, Marzorati, Les Lunaisiens - Alpha


Great less-known french composer of almost Clérambault's caliber in my opinion!  8)
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening. Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural and less tiresome in headphone listening.

I would turn that "almost" to: not by a long stretch...  ::)

Wasn't terribly impressed by this disc myself.

I bought the CD as well simply because I have never heard of the composer.  Exploring works by relatively unknown baroque and early music composers has been my latest interest ...

Mine too! :D And it's worth the risk of an occasional dud.

I just happened not to get stuck on Stuck. ;D

Indeed, it is a risk worth taking at $10 (was already discounted at MDT) so I did not pay anywhere close to full price ...

Just placed the following order with ArkivMusic but could have saved a few dollars had I placed the order with Amazon yesterday, then I would not have to pay for sale tax and shipping.  Amazon price was virtually identical to ArkivMusic ...
