Thanks! I already had the great piano recital "Kurtág's Ghosts" and some of the Lachenmann discs ... and I admire the label generally, so I ordered some items that I'm totally ignorant about, just because at that price you can't really go all too wrong, I hope! (Don't know a tone by Furrer, Ablinger, Mantovani, Kyburz ... know little by/about Neuwirth, Mundry).

Latest purchase:



Profil's revised Bruckner Collection - it's pretty similar to the old edition apart from a few of the Symphony recordings being replaced by Gerd Schaller versions (which sounds good to me) :).

If you don't know it yet, start with Helgoland (disc 20). Local islanders defeat Roman armies, send invading fleet to the abyss. Thrilling !

I need some more string quartets

This south korean SQ has a gorgeous sound



and since I do not own any recording of Anton/Antoine Reicha





A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.

Symphony 10, trio, etc (2 discs).



This is a live 1953 concert, not the tamer (but still very impressive) 1951 studio release on Berlin Classics.



Apart from the gorgeous String Sextet and multiple discs of film music, I know nothing of Korngold's oeuvre.



The Goldbergs transcribed for 2 pianos in 1883 by composer Josef Rheinberger, to which Max Reger later added his own dynamic, articulation and tempo markings.

Hey Andre,
I listened to Helgoland a few years ago but I don't know it at all if I'm being honest - thanks, I'll give it a spin again soon :).

Helgoland: I listened to the performance in that set and, frankly, do not recommend it. It's far too fast. Barenboim's 2 readings are almost as fast (which is bad) but his orchestras provide a lot of weight (whis is good). If you can find it, try Wyn Morris' grand, grand, grand performance, usefully coupled with the little-known but lambently beautiful Liebesmahl der Apostel by Wagner.

Seems it's your day of luck: Youtube has it, complete with the text. Just compare the first 15-20 seconds of the opening and you'll hear the (huge) difference:

The interesting thing for me is that I know nothing about the composer nor have I heard a single note of the composer's music.

Oh? Well, I think you’ll enjoy the composer’s idiom very much. Post-Sibelian goodness from start to finish. Although, the earlier symphonies are much more influenced by folk music a la Bartok. Either way, you’ll dig Holmboe. 8)

I ordered some Kairos from JPC too, due to Harry´s info about the current low prices:

- Sciarrino Orchestral works 3CD (9.99 Euros!)
- Bruno Mantovani - Sette Chiese for piano and orchestra
- Furrer: Nuun for 2 Pianos & Orchetra etc.
- Olga Neuwirth - Akroate, ensemble works

Also a recording of Rebel´s Les Elemens coupled with a Rameau suite, in a recording by Gaig that compared favourably with my old Hogwood LP, I think (7.99 Euros)

Thank you; I am really looking forward to surveying this cycle. I have seen it so often here that it already seems like an old friend  :)

I'm pretty sure that was me before I bought the symphonies box myself. I'd just read things (mostly things in the Penguin Guide).

And then I started with Symphony No.5 which they had suggested as an entry point, and... over time, I became the slavering Holmboe-obsessive you see before you today. 179 recordings of works after that first batch of 14. Still trying to hunt down a few...

Thanks André - It's alright; I'm usually not too fussy about different performances (assuming the playing and SQ are basically OK) so I think the Helgoland in the box will be fine.
I'll check out the link you posted though for comparison - cheers! :).
