I LOVE the accordion. (And not bec. it was the first instrument I played... I think.)

These are some of my favorite discs:


Satie




Scarlatti




Janacek





Bach

MDT in the UK are offering free delivery to UK addresses which broke down my resolve - but I'm pleased to say I only ordered three items (9 discs in total)

Ordered today at JPC de.

The first one after a positive recommendation from Que.

Two wonderful works indeed. Enjoy your listening when you eventually get to hear it.

Deal at Amazon.fr

Quite curious about his live Bruckner!

https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B06XPYVS8P/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1




I don't like catch-all sets, but that sure contains a LOOOOOOT of goodness. Indeed, greatness. The live Bruckner - esp. Berlin but also Hamburg. The Berlin Schubert. The NDR Schubert 5.
I think I have all the recording except the Schumann, I think... and it's quite something. (Though I do prefer the studio Brahms over the live recordings, if not by much.)

The Gardiner/LSO A Midsummer Night's Dream incidental music, with generous amounts of Shakespeare (the whole is 55 minutes long).  24/96 download from eClassical.



But I should have checked the Hyperion site, where it's a little cheaper:

What do you think of it? (I've found Gardiner's Mendelssohn the most anemic I've ever heard.)

Very charming.  The robust parts are suitably robust; I don't hear anything anemic.  On the other hand, I was only interested in this particular recording of the MSD incidental music.  The only other recording I have of MSD with dramatic readings of Shakespeare is Leinsdorf, which only has a smattering of rather precious line readings.
