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.

I like Gardiner’s Mendelssohn, too. Nothing anemic about it to me. Quite lively performances. I haven’t listened to his whole cycle, though.

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

Thank you. What more could I want? Beautiful works performed by my favourite violinist and orchestra.

Oh dear...I wish you well, Peter. ;) He’s a composer I just can’t get into and, boy, have I tried.

And..you are a persistent listener!  We'll see how it goes. I liked the more famous tone poems!  :P

:) I’m especially persistent when there’s an appeal there in the music, but I haven’t quite got grasp of it, but I’m continuously lured back into the music somehow.

Just arrived in the mail today, Monday, 21 MAY 2018.

 A 2 CD set, The Chicago Principal in which first chair CSO soloists play concerti. First off, it has four classical concerti, all conducted by Claudio Abbado--the Haydn Trumpet Concerto with Adolph Herseth, and three Mozart concerti--the oboe concerto with Ray Still, the bassoon concerto with Willard Elliot, and the Horn Concerto 3 with Dale Clevenger. Then there's the Schumann Konzertstuck in F Major for 4 horns & orch. with Dale Clevenger, Richard Oldberg, Thomas Howell, & Norman Schweikert, Daniel Barenboim conducting. Then, three 20th century works--the Vaughan Williams Bass Tuba Concerto with Arnold Jacobs, Barenboim conducting, Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn, & Strings with Dale Clevenger, Robert Tear, tenor, and Carlo Maria Giulini conducting, and Ravel's Bolero conducted by Georg Solti.

Anyone remember when movie theaters had advertisements that were paintings of the main poster and/or characters... and they were always 'photo-realistic', except not quite?

Great buy and, yes, horrible cover art.
