Not that there are ants in my pants, but I'm curious if Mitya can sell me on the Borodin b minor symphony ...

A CD featuring Chopin's PC1 only? That's a 30-min long CD at most. Who would pay for that, I wonder? :o

It has an encore as well.

It can be streamed for $0/€0/¥0 marginal cost.

Sure. It's just that I don't frequently see such short-timed releases.

Most Chopin PC1s approach 40 minutes, not 30. 20-odd for the first movement then close to 10 for each of the last two.

Of all the Chopin that I want in my life, I have to confess the concertos are somewhere near the bottom.

Yes indeed, Sonoda is quite excellent in the Brahms Piano Concerti (Jiří Kout/NHK Symphony), and I should carve out some time to hear him in the Schumann.

I've not yet been listening to the Mitropoulos set because the shipment has been a Comedy of Errors, starting with it was released on 22 April, but initial supply was apparently low, and apparently I was not a priority recipient. Latest is: the lady at Sony told me delivery was expected yesterday, but the parcel is still sitting in Indiana, and when it gets to Massachusetts, nobody knows.

For perspective, and mine is not at all any serious complaint, of course, my publisher observes:
This sounds typical for today's times. Friends with medical shipments weeks late. Amazon packages lost or mis-delivered. Hordes of airline flights canceled.

The Mitropoulos box set has some fascinating repertoire, but the dated fidelity would definitely keep me away from it.

Looks like a lovely box set. My only wish was all of the recordings had a new digital remastering, then I might consider it. The Handley symphony cycle especially is in need of it. This would be a great set for someone who likes RVW and wants to explore more of his music beyond the usual suspects like The Lark Ascending, Tallis Fantasia, Five Variants on 'Dives and Lazaurs' et. al.

It would seem 90% or more of the recordings in this set are the ones used in the old EMI Collector's Edition.  They even retained "Sir Adrian in Rehearsal". The main upgrade is therefore the packaging.

The old Edition had Barbirolli's mono version of the Tuba Concerto. His name is not listed here so I assume a newer recording was used.
Not mentioned at all are chamber works, which account for about 1 1/2 CDs in the old Edition. Either Warner included them but didn't think them worth listing, or they've been replaced by works not in the old Edition.

ETA: just realized the back cover blurb mentions chamber music, so it seems the only different recording is the Tuba Concerto.

Yes, this does indeed seem to be the case. Oh well, for the newcomer, it would be most welcome I'm sure.

I just want to add that the cover says Brahms All Symphonies.
