Free to a Good Home
« on: October 07, 2009, 09:11:41 AM »
Going through my collection these past couple of weeks, I've found a number of boxset casualties which I'm happy to post to anyone here:

   



A couple of older style Schütz recordings (from the 60s and 70s). I find them beautiful in a spare, stark way - not sure if that's the music or the interpretation - but I love listening to them in the middle of the night (which, quite frankly, probably says more about my personal life than Schütz’s music :P). I don't, however, have anything with which to compare them nor do I know the music well, so the interpretations could be hopelessly out of date for all I know. The pictures aren't clear, but they're both with the Dresdner Kreuzchor, the Lukas-Passion (Mauersberger) and the Matthäus-Passion (Flämig):

   


Some Marcelle Meyer. I really like her Chabrier, but again don't have anything else for comparison. I haven't got the CD case for the set on me, but do have the booklet. I can send the case when I get it out of storage if I remember where it is:



I haven't listened to this in a while, but Rosbaud's Sibelius hasn't left as much an impression on me as his other works (Mozart, Haydn, 20th century repertoire). :-\ It has been a while though, so I don't really trust a) my memory and b) my earlier assessments. :P But perhaps someone else might like to try it:




This was my first Mozart disc and it's one of the best. 8) I think there’s been a few mentions over on the favourite Szell recording thread. Mine is an older incarnation with a different cover:





Durch alle Töne tönet
Im bunten Erdentraum
Ein leiser Ton gezogen
Für den der heimlich lauschet.

Drasko

Can anyone play? I have extra copy of Eugen Jochum's Dresden Bruckner 9th on EMI. Who wants it can have it, free of course.

I'll take the Meyer off your hands, thanks! No need for case.

What is the status right now? I am very interested in the Schutz, Mozart and Sibelius, special emphasis on the first two.
Do what I must do, and let what must happen happen.

I'd be interested in the Bach and Schütz.

I also have some CDs I'll be happy to give away, will post them later.

I'm definitely interested! :) Let me know if they're still available!

Also, to the OP, if the Mozart symphonies (Szell) are still up for grabs, count me in!

Still there. PM me with your address and it's yours.

Also available is a Mravinski's Bruckner 9th:



To another forum member other than Joe please, I just want to be fair to everyone else.

For anyone who's interested, this one's still here:

This one:



If you want it PM me with your address, preferably inside the US only and for someone other than Joe or Keenum.

And Joe, your Harnoncourt cd was shipped on Monday.

I have this one and it is some of the best Schumann playing I've ever heard. The Papillons and Fassingsschwanck are non pareil IMO. The Fantasy is already regarded as one of the legendary recordings. I bought mine for $AUS10 brand new. It's an absolute giveaway at the price.
Cheers

Now it's my turn to give away some CDs.  (Don't get overly excited, these selections likely won't knock your socks off).  :D  If I can't give these away, I'll donate them to the library.

*Already have two other versions of the 'Fantastique'.  :)

Handel

Messiah

London Philharmonic Orchestra & Choir

Madacy

*This one is one of those super bargain CDs (no liner notes, just the track listing, as is often the case with these bargain CDs).  Not into the Messiah, and not into Handel.  It must go.  :)

Haydn

String Quartet, Op.103
Quartettsatz "Der Greis", Hob.XXV C:5

Great performances are never expendable! Or possibly I'm just a pack rat.  ;D
