Fantastic, underrated PC's.

Yes, I must agree, even from the little I have heard of the Hummel concerti.

Liszt ~ PC's Phillippe Entremont/Ormandy/PO  Essential Classics

I'm warming to the Liszt PC's, but I'm sure theres a better version out there?

I don't know the recording you're listening to, so I couldn't compare.

But I like Cziffra in these a lot.

Tried the Richter/Kondrashin, on Philips? :)


Coincidentally, I'm listening to the Kondrashin/Moscow Philharmonic Shostakovich 5th, on Melodiya: "the way it's meant to be played!"

Oh, and Muriel, I've no doubt you're hot. Women who are a little older usually are. The young ones have got real firm bodies, the more mature ones have got real estate. I know which turns me on more. ;D

 What do you have your eye on Mark,the hobby farm on Saltspring Island or the castle in Spain.

Berlioz
Overture to Beatrice et Benedict
BSO
Charles Munch


This one's from 1949, and the brass are distressingly dodgy in ways that they are assuredly not in the rest of the box.  At casual glance, this seems to be the earliest recording in the box, so the dodgy brass are circumstantial evidence of the beneficial effect Munch must subsequently have had on the BSO  8)

Are they going to war?

I just had a Koussevitsky-Sibelius early evening. Pohjola's Daughter, Tapiola and the Seventh Symphony. Not perhaps Sibelius for every day, but invigorating listening regardless.

If you mean the piano version of "Pictures", hop over to the early pages of the Broadcast Corner thread - I think there's a link to Richter or someone like that playing the Pictures live.


Thanks to all those that chimed in on this.

Might this be the one Brian?
