I'm not the one planning to buy the box! But I guess it will be on streaming somewhere...

Those images are somewhat misleading - the full size versions here and here reveal that the boxes are 23 and 22 CDs each, with most of the covers just not displayed. Full track lists are at the Eloquence website.

That is some lame marketing. I think of Paray as an utterly superb interpreter of French Music. I would put some of his recordings of Debussy orchestral music at the very top of my list.

But oddly, when I look at the listing of CDs, I seem to thing, I've got that, and that, and that, etc. There must be a lot of mono stuff that is new to CD, as well as core German repertoire (Beethoven, etc) that they left of of the previous Mercury collections.

Seems like a must buy, except, wow, $150 each.

How can I reconcile this with getting the Ashkenazy box, released the same month. I noticed that importcds.com is listing the Ashkenazy box for a very low price, but there shipping surcharge for the 23 lb package (!) mostly nullifies the price advantage over amazon with free prime shipping.

How much do you like the combination of clarinet, cello, and piano? Enough to buy a 7 CD box set of the nearly complete repertoire from the 1700s to present day, including Weinberg, Kahn, Rihm, Part, Norgard, Ireland, Schoenberg, Lindberg, Beethoven, and more?

Featuring the principal clarinet of the Vienna Philharmonic with a cellist from the Berlin Philharmonic and a pianist who is also accompanist to Thomas Hampson and Bernarda Fink.

  Right up my alley. I just got a download of this. Gorgeous sound (kudos to the recording engineer), cool repertoire, and fabulous chemistry in the playing.
It's all good...

September releases by Hyperion:


I hope Hyperion has Takács record the full cycle. Their op. 76 is up there with Auryn Quartet, even Takács less than ideal concert hall like acoustics (IMO not suited for chamber music) can't keep me from playing it.

Attention Willaert mavens. Did you miss Dionysos Now! I did. They have two CDs already chockablock with Willaert masses, all called Adriano, and a third in the pic above is in the pipeline for September.

Interesting, I'll definitely give them a listen!  :)

Luckily the recordings are available in physical form... on vinyl...  :P

Hmm. Well, if my Mosaiques Haydn never emerges from the aether, including op.77/103, then here's another option...

This ensemble may be an acquired taste. Which of the three CD's would you recommend as an appetizer?

The first is the only one I've heard with any attention and I thought the mass was very enjoyable.

Can't remember if Ormandy in Minnesota has been posted before.



Sign me up.









This is the second volume.  I missed the first.  Nodaira's LvB cycle is quite good, so I may end up going for this set when done.





Knapik as pianist compels.  I wonder if Knapik as composer does.

WTF? ??? Ummm...I don't know what to make of this one. I'm a Martinů fanatic as you know, but Norrington? Ugh...why?

Presumably not HIP  ;D ;D I am very curious about that too. Who knows what it'll be. He did a good Holst "Planets."

This sounds pretty exceptional to me!

May and June have been bumper months. It's as if all that pent up creativity which covid blocked has exploded onto the world.
