Started the day with the 10th disc of Vernet's Bach cycle, it includes the Trio sonatas. Vernet is playing the Treutmann organ in Graufhof-Goslar and the Thomas Schott organ in the Klosterkirche in Muri, Switzerland (pictured).


Now on to Mozart's German Dances by Bruno Weil, I had forgotten how much fun these are! :D



It is now included in a cheap Vivarte Mozart/Weil reissue - you guys better hurry! :o :D It's too late for me - I had already gathered all the items in that 4CDset... ::)

This will be my last post for a few days - my flight for Rome leaves late this afternoon. Will be back next Saturday. :)

The set was tempting, but I have multiple performances already, so I let this pass me by. Some CD'S less to move when I get to my new house. ;D

No. 2 right now.


Can't believe I've been overlooking SQ's (in general) for so long. And these just flood my heart with joy & awe.

Yes that too Que, but I reduced the space for all my CD'S with 65%, by putting them in space saving sleeves from Jazz Loft. So yes, the house is much bigger, but I need less space. Its a better and bigger listening room for me in this house.......

Well, whilst I was pottering around quietly minding my own business in the morning sunlight to the soaring, godlike, angelic music of Ligetis Requiem,  :o  the postman delivered this:






It all arrived from Columbus, Ohio.  Utterly brilliant.  Thank you Cato.  I must listen to Reger first, as he is a composer I have no idea about... :D
Dear Kees Bakels
What the fantasias were you thinking when you took a job in the Orient as a conductor all those years ago instead of staying over this side of the World so we could hear you Live more often?  I am well pissed with you over the matter.
Kind regards anyway.

So yes, the house is much bigger, but I need less space.
Or you need more cds! :)

Now listening to a perennial favorite - Vorisek and Arriaga Symphonies.

Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

The money will now go primarily in renovating the house, so my ordering will be as low as possible. That said I will have space enough for another 25 years in the new house, if I stick to the SSS.

That recording on Hyperion is also a favourite of mine. :)
