Dvorak.  I'd love to hear a lot of different symphony cycles, string quartets, operas, chamber music, choral works, and concerti just to hear what other artists do with them.

Prokofiev.
I think if you count a 3-disc opera as one "CD," then I could get the rest of his recorded works in around 20 CDs. That's actually waaaaaay better than it sounds.

Shelf? ???

Sorry about that, Marc.  I meant stacked teetering in unopened condition for no less than a year and half next to where you typed your response. ;D

It has to be Mahler or Bach for me.

Hmmm. Well I don't think either eRikm or Tetreault has twenty CDs that I don't have, so since they both play with Otomo Yoshihide, as do Sachiko M and Katsura Mouri, I guess my choice would be

Otomo Yoshihide

Beethoven - 20 discs would be a couple more piano sonata cycles, and I certainly could use a couple more.

I'm hard pressed to think of another major composer that my collection is so deficient in who would merit 20 more discs at one pop.

Same here.  I'm ashamed of my Haydn collection.  My Bach collection is decent... but not for Bach.  Bach alone warrants a couple hundred cd's.

 :o ;D

For me, Handel or Prokofiev.
Veit Bach-a baker who found his greatest pleasure in a little cittern which he took with him even into the mill and played while the grinding was going on. In this way he had a chance to have the rhythm drilled into him. And this was the beginning of a musical inclination in his descendants. JS Bach

Ah. :)

Instead of shelf,
because of decreasing wealth,
I was thinking more of floor
or right behind the kitchen door,
or even in my bed
or wherever I lay my hat.

And I have 67 discs queued up too.  :D
James, now don't make me frustrated or jealous! ;)

Good thing that this integral is available. But about 12 years ago, I made a vow to be loyal to Suzuki, and I will stick to that promise. Besides that, I already do have half-a-dozen of Koopman volumes and also the Easter & Christmas boxes.
Both Suzuki & Koopman are delivering performances of high level, IMO.

Thanks for this great pic, which of course does not in the least apply to myself, which is why I immediately downloaded it for my background screen

Should have read this healthy post 10 minutes earlier. I just ordered another Bach box .... by Fritz Werner et al. :P

I will store it on my balcony.

Would have to be the composer who already takes up the biggest slice of my collection, Bach.  It seems that, with Bach more than any other composer, new interpretations yield new insights into the music.

Hmmm...someone just posted a purchase that would get me ten new Mozart discs in one go if I follow suit.

...and 5 Bach CDs, at higher total cost.  I think this is my forth complete WTC obtained in the past month or two.
