I have the former but not the latter. Cheers.  :)

Enjoy, my friend!

Dueling Op 7s.  Oppitz is stern, efficient, and never plays less than commendably.  Levinas is fleeter, lighter in feel but not in weight, is far more expressive in the Largo without resorting to histrionics, and generally just obliterates Oppitz in this work. 
The universe is change; life is opinion.   Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Now:



I’m listening to this whole recording. It doesn’t matter what part of this recording I go to whether it be the first work, the next to last work, etc., it’s high quality music and this is an essential Ives recording that no Ivesian should be without. It’s OOP, but I imagine it can be tracked down for a good price.

This morning: act 2


I don't know if Kleiber had been assisted by some recording artifices, and I don't care. What he's doing here with the orchestra is absolutely stunning. The most gorgeous music in a sublime recording.

Second time through my Jeanne d'Arc...

This time I watched it on Amazon Prime, with subtitles. Quite a different experience when you know what they're singing about.

This is really an amazing discovery for me.  Highest rating.

I'm sure I'll be playing it again soon.

By the way, if anybody is a little foggy on the Joan of Arc story, this is a quite decent guide:

You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.

I'm kinda ashamed to say that I've usually ignored this recording....every time I listen to it I notice a kind of magic that can't be heard in any other recording.

Been asking myself the very same question, ever since it was released ... and more recently again when I was at the local alpha distributor and held both in my hands (I bought so much that day, I didn't feel I had to make up my mind there and then, luckily).
