Quote from: mc ukrneal on January 24, 2012, 10:59:33 PMThe easiest and cheapest way (I would guess) to get his works would be to get the set on Brilliant (which was the set on BIS).
Quote from: Scots John on January 25, 2012, 08:06:42 AMWell John, you have woke me up to this composer again, and I will play some of his stuff in a wee while to refamiliarise myself and re-instate him in my listening scheme.

Quote from: Scots John on January 25, 2012, 08:06:42 AMThere sure are some deep and very old cultural ties between Scotland and it's Northern neighbors.
Quote from: Mirror Image on January 25, 2012, 08:11:52 AMActually, the Brilliant and BIS sets are different. Brilliant is one disc short of the set from BIS. I never understood this and which is why I never purchased the Brilliant set and the BIS set is out-of-print and expensive. But it's okay, I wanted the Serenade from Jarvi and I got it for a good price used. I'm not too interested in exploring the symphonies and other works just yet. I want to hear this work again before moving on.
Quote from: eyeresist on January 29, 2012, 04:11:57 PMYes, from the samples I've heard the Serenade is the standout of Stenhammer's opus, and I'd like to get the Jarvi recording, the only one to include the "missing" movement. Just waiting for the price to drop a bit!
