Can you please stop criticizing so many of my posts? It's getting really tiresome. And I'm not really sure what Nielsen's concerti have to do with Atterberg's...

 :) That is a problem here as far as I'm concerned. It's always the same few people and you begin to miss arguable criticisms among irrelevance. It makes you want not to post anything.  ::)

For what it's worth (probably not much): I don't think he thinks of it as criticizing your posts... just sort of talking out loud with no harm intended. (Although it's good of you to speak up, so he knows how they might come across.)

Rather decent 1995 performances of rather interesting repertoire.

All of HvK’s Sibelius recordings are mandatory listening for the Sibelian as far as I’m concerned!

Unless TSATF are going to do another Pipelaere, I have no more of their recordings on my wishlist.

Q
That Pipelare album is something else! Listening now.

Definitely an original composer, he reminds me a bit of Antheil. When I’m done with this series I’ll listen to the Holmboe SQ box. This will be daunting ! :o

No, no, he'll just draw you right in!

Definitely!   :)

I'm going to look for a separate nice period recording of the Caprices, that are here incorporated in the concertos.

Just for the fun of it and because they are fascinating pieces.

But other than that, I'm good on Locatelli - this set is highly satisfactory.

You would not be able to do that. Add Hyperion 66721 (3 discs) to your archive and thank me later. ::)

Well, Atterberg is your avatar, so it seemed pretty relevant to me. ;) I’m not criticizing your posts, Kyle. I’m merely making an observation. I just found it unusual to make comparisons between concerti and symphonies when they both strive for different goals. Since I see I touched a nerve, I’ll never comment on any of your posts again if that’s how you’re going to react each time I say something to you that doesn’t agree with your opinion. All the best to you in your future endeavors!

I wish HvK had conducted all of the tone poems. He would have done a great job with the orchestral songs as well. Not to mention Kullervo.

Focusing on the chamber music there. A fine Voces Intimae recording.

That is a fine set. I gave it to a friend of mine as I was snapping up those Sibelius Edition sets and it was redundant to own it. This set would certainly make a fantastic introduction to anyone who wants to get into Sibelius and a get a broad sampling of his oeuvre.
