Arrived today:



Mine has the American cover, a butterfly on white background. “Travel back to a simpler time,” urges the promo blurb on the rear insert. This is surely the most dubious HIP in my collection. The Strauss and Barber pieces were written well after modern strings and playing style became the norm. But it was cheap and might be interesting to hear.

I like the Smithsonian Players directed by Kenneth Slowik.  I would like to hear these works with gut-strung instruments.  Thanks.

Similarly cheap, as I recall. I don't know if it is still in print.

If you are thinking of terms in SQ this set is too dated, even if it is in early stereo (1957!!). But the interpretation makes it unique. Similar questions could be raised about Schnabel's Beethoven and the Busch Quartet's recordings and many other historical recordings.

I quite like Kraft in the ~complete Bach, and don´t mind the sound there. It´s much better than those earlier recordings, of course.

When did you order?  I am still waiting.

  I ordered October 10, 2017.  I received notification of dispatch a few days later.  The set is very impressive.  Great liner notes, laminated.  They sound superb, most were recorded no more than 4 years ago.

Basically my thoughts too. I’ll try to post my impressions in the next few days.

An operatic rarity which I had been after for quite a while. I spotted a new copy very reasonably priced at a B&M shop close to home here in Madrid.


As close as we get to an opera by Mahler?

Das Klagende Lied is a good approximation of an opera.

Arkivmusic is running a one day sale tonight and tomorrow. I picked a couple, and added on some new releases.

Yes, that may well be true. My problem is that I find DkL insufferable (and the subject matter downright unpleasant). IMHO an adolescent and overambitious attempt to emulate Wagner, where glimpses of Mahler's future genius are but few and far between...

Not particularly cheap, but brand new and and not over the regular retail price.
Looking forward to it. :)

Yesterday I was reviewing my "confirmed but not yet delivered" orders and I noticed this Koechlin set. I was sure 200% that Ii had ordered the other Koechlin box with his instrumental/chamber music instead. So I'm set to receive something I didn't really need/want. Oh well... ::)

I liked the Reger piano set more than the organ sets, which augurs well for you.

Before I order this lot I would like to invite some comments from people that know them or have knowledge about performers.
Thank you!

No one reacted so I guess you all think them marvelous...right ordered then.

4 boxes in total from Ricercar.
