Oh yes, while we're at it: Ivan Moravec recording anything that he hasn't recorded yet.

This is one of those questions that make our (musical) hearts bleed. We all  have our preferences & dislikes and hope that some recordcompany "discovers" those very special composers.
sean, I would like to see a comlete Wagner ( and Mozart,Verdi...) operaset of DVD's "as he imagined "them himself - as some kind of reference. I have no problem with abstract- or late 19th century Wagner or Aida clad in a rock&roll gown, but would definitely like to see & hear it with all the original trimmings...

National radiostations could do much more in uncovering& promoting their archives or- as in Denmark,Great Britain & Finland- just be proud of their heritage. A museum of sound, easily (and handsomely) presented. It just might work as antidote to overconsumption of Karajan, Beethoven, Bartoli etc.

PS : Belgian composers deserving a CD : Albert Huybrechts (1899-1932)- lovely ,late impressionism
Raymond Chevreuille ( 1901-1976) a great mix of French charm & stravinskian spikiness..
Lodewijk De Vocht : championed & conducted Honegger and Milhaud in the 1920-1930 ies ,wrote however extremely lovely ( tonal) musiv . His choral symphony (1935- vocalising chorus & large orchestra) is some kind of "Art deco" paean...

I wouldn't mind a Ring Cycle with Placido Domingo singing Siegfried. It would have to be a studio recordings since there is no way he has enough stamina to sing it on stage. This would probabaly complete Domingo's traversal of Wagner heldentenor roles.

I would also like to have a Havergal Brian cycle. Marco Polo seemed to have abandoned this guy after two or three CDs.

i wish boulez would/could record some of stravinsky's 3rd period stuff...it's some of his best!

and maybe a disc of pollini performing liszt's 12 transcendental studies, perhaps years of pilgrimage too.

The aim of music is not to express feelings but to express music. It is not a vessel into which the composer distills his soul drop by drop, but a labyrinth with no beginning and no end, full of new paths to discover, where mystery remains eternal. - Pierre Boulez

Robert Hill and Pierre Hantaï recording Bach´s English suites and Partitas.

The above would be great.  I'd also like to see David Cates record them as well.  His set of the French Suites is as good as it gets.

I would very much like to have a recording of the violin concertos of Castelnuovo-Tedesco. Heifetz did one of them (but try and find it) and the other one is unrecorded, AFAIK. They have been played in concert though and are reputedly excellent. Undecided

Hilary Hahn needs to record the violin concertos by Dvorak and Tchaikovsky!

Also Martin Frost needs to record the Brahms Clarinet Quintet.

The posthumous Book of Madrigali a 6 voci by Don Carlo Gesualdo, by anybody. A complete Josquin edition would also be nice...

I agree! There's not a lot of belgian composers' works on record. A couple of nice discs on the Discover label, but precious little sense of the bigger picture. Lekeu was a genius whose work is still discovered piecemeal.

Among the most egregious blind spots in today's discography: the spanish or iberic-influenced music of 1750-1800. There's still lots of music to be recorded by Scarlatti and Soler, for example, even though these two are generally thought to be quite well covered on records.

I don't know whether I care about the Dvorak, though I would probably buy anything she records. I would like to seee a recording of hers of the Mozart and Goldmark concerti. I have heard her play those live and they were superb. What i would kill for is her playing the Brahms sonatas. I heard some of those live with her as well.

Beethoven's Early and Middle String Quartets by the Busch Quartet....do they exist?

Also, did Serkin complete all of Beethoven's Piano Sonatas?  I thought there were a handful missing.
