The blind comparison isn't dead, I just don't wanna do any more of them myself, but I'm happy to watch and make fun of you guys for eliminating Knappertsbusch's Ring in Round One

I'm up for possibly hosting another one. I was thinking of Haydn's 45th, Farewell Symphony. I think I currently have 15 recordings of the work, and what I believe would be interesting is to see how the mix of modern and period instruments fare in the comparisons.

Would anyone be interested in a comparison of recordings of Schoenberg's Violin Concerto?  I have several and could get one or two more to facilitate comparison, but I have to know that there's some level of interest before I jump in.

But are there enough recordings to warrant a blind comparison?

I have four on hand, and I could easily get a few others.
