To my great horror, one of my classical friends sent me the complete organ box with the music of J.S Bach on 15 CD'S, played by Molardi of the Brilliant label. He wants a in depth review, and he did not agree that I ignored Molardi's approach. I warned him that I could say really ugly things about it, but this threat did not convince him. So I will listen to it.
Since he is a dealer in High res stereo also, some equipment came with it too, and he will sent my thoughts about this box to some editors of classical magazines he knows in the world.
I feel pressured :)


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.

Bought via aDE, I'm rather confident ... they say "8 in stock (more on the way)":

Not shipped yet and I'm off on vacation next week, so it'll be here (with curses from the missus, as there'll be several other packages arriving during my absence) upon my return.

We're talking at cross purposes here, I meant to comment on the Duphly/Royer set. Sorry for my misunderstanding, I was out of my depth.

Priced 11.26£, but only 9.38£ in the checkout section. Excellent value. Suitner is one of my favourite conductors.

Okay, and no problem ... I wanted the Hahn anyways.

So you mean the Royer/Rousset? I have the Ambroisie one on my piles, but only played once I think, and the Oiseau Lyre in the baroque box - and unplayed so far.

My visit on Tuesday to La Boite à Musique in Brussels turned into a little piano feast:

This was what I was actually planning to purchase (the store is related to the Pavane label):



And these two were heavily discounted:

I've read wonders (here on GMG and elsewhere) about this set.

Mainly for the Étude retrouvée that is included.

Awesome! Spring Fire is one of the few Bax works that made a great impression on me. Enjoy!

Respighi: Belkis, Queen of Sheba (suite); Metamorphoseon (Moxi XII)
Philharmonia Orchestra/Geoffrey Simon

Quite a short disc (under 50 minutes), but two works that have been on my radar for a while now.

I think that is a superb disc, one of the best Respighi ones there is.

Very interesting. Are they all good performances? I actually only have Orfeo (Gardiner, very happy with it), but have been looking to add Poppea and the others would just be a bonus. And do you know if there is a full libretto for all of them?
Be kind to your fellow posters!!

These are among the most highly regarded performances of these works.  :)

I have not heard every one of these recordings, but I hold this version of L'Orfeo to be among the three finest on record (the other two being Parrott/Taverner and Alessandrini/Concerto Italiano).

One of the most striking things about Garrido's Monteverdi recordings, is the very vibrant continuo.  Singers and instrumentalists read like a who's-who of today's period specialists.

I have the box added to the wishlist and plan to purchase it soon.  Hat tip to north star, who first posted about this set on GMG.  ;)
