I think you are easily bored.

This is a really unnecessary comment. Your position was already perfectly clear. No need to get personal just because somebody disagrees with you over a recording.

  His [Bostock's] Nielsen cycle with the RLPO is a case in point - perfectly good playing because its a very good orchestra but can anyone here really say with their hands on their hearts that they would choose Bostock in any of those symphonies over other versions - surely not

I have first and formost been occupied with Bostock's Espansiva. It is a very lyrical interpretation particularly the second movement. I think it captures the Danish spirit rather well, and it is among my five preferred recordings of this work, the others being Schønwandt, Frandsen, Oramo and Bernstein.

Harry -   I accept the Nielsen is competent because the orchestra is a good one.  Follow the scores of the Bax / RVW etc and you will find that the performances are generalised at best in interpretative terms.  Also the actual quality of the orchestral playing smacks of a 2nd tier orchestra playing unfamiliar repertoire on too few rehearsals.  That is an objective and not subjective comment.

A bit of a rarity. The composer Arthur Lourié will be new to me.



I know and love his piano music ... unaware of this Kremer disc had to order it, too - thanks for the pointer!

Just bought:



You can never have too many recordings of Janáček’s piano music. This set seemed like a safe bet considering how impressed I’ve recently become with Páleníček’s pianism.

Turns out that Momox aka Medimops.de screwed things up by jamming the entire order in a big padded envelope that was NOT properly closed. ...

By the time it arrived to my home, everything was lost, except for three remaining items: the Van Asperen, the Sei Voci Fabri and the Ronsard Poems...

A major dissapointment, and so unnecessary..... ??? I just sent them a furious email.....

Q

I had some major issues with them some time ago, also relating to inadequate packing of the items. I refrained since then ordering with them.
I am very sorry to hear this Que. Very annoying indeed.

Fortunately FALSE alarm!  :)
Though Momox indicated there would be a single package, DHL was just on my doorstep to deliver two more envelopes with the other items.
The condition on the Telemann Ino is pretty bad though... I need a replacement for that.

Recently, I just had some problem with them too.  It may have to do with the shipping process.  I am still waiting for a partial order.  If it eventually comes, I will still use them because they  collect OOP cds and resell them for a modest price.

I just played the Telemann double CD. The "Gerichts" is stunning, Ino not so much.
