What kind of a Szellian are you?  :-\

I know, I know...but I was trying to get the most bang for a buck, and with the Kubelik disc we get two great symphonies.

Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

1st pick - Dvorak Symphony 9 - Sir Charles Mackerras/Prague Symphony

2nd pick - Mendelssohn VC - Hilary Hahn/Oslo Philharmonic

3rd pick - Copland Appalachian Spring - Orpheus Chamber Orchestra

Okay, hornteacher makes the Kubelik redundant. So, my third pick: Dvorak Cello Concerto, Szell, Fournier, Berlin Phil.

Got it--let's stick with CDs but my interest is piqued in the Jacobs/BBC you mention.

I can't imagine being on a desert island without the Janowitz/Karajan Vier Letze Lieder. Just gorgeous.

I also would be heartbroken not to have anything with Kirsten Flagstad singing on it. Even some old highlights cd.
