Quote from: George on April 06, 2007, 05:54:08 AMThought it might be nice to have a thread where one could post a recording that one was considering and get some input from others about what they think of the recording.
Quote from: Don on April 06, 2007, 01:28:40 PMMy sitaution is that I always acquire recordings I've been considering. The time lag is usually about 2 minutes.

Quote from: Steve on April 09, 2007, 11:12:05 AMAnyone familiar with the Kremer DG Collector's Edition boxed set. It includes violin sonatas from Beethoven, Schumann, and Brahms. I've just sampled op. 24, and was pleasantly surprised with the lovely articulation of that jubuliant opening. Any comments on the rest?

Quote from: O Mensch on April 11, 2007, 10:52:19 AMOur old friend M praised this set to the heavens, but I haven't heard it yet.
Quote from: George on April 11, 2007, 11:42:56 AMI don't know who else you have, but I very much enjoy my only set: Boehm/DG. Great sound, price and performance. Its got it all. You surely could get some opinions about the Harnoncourt at rmcr. M is there too!

Quote from: PerfectWagnerite on April 11, 2007, 11:50:51 AMrec.music.classical.recordingsIf you going for a complete set the Muti is pretty hard to beat in terms of price and performance. Originally release by EMI it is now on Brilliant for only $13 or so. The performances are fabulous with arguably the best Schubert orchestra in the world. Warm, romantic, lush performances that are lithe and flexible. You will return to it time and time again.Other excellent sets are Kertesz/VPO, Wand, and if you want period instrument Goodman. The Kertesz and Goodman are also cheap. Wand is cheap in Europe I think but is a bit pricey in the US.

Quote from: Choo Choo on April 19, 2007, 10:06:59 AMSaw this on offer at JPC for just 25 Euro:That's 11 CDs for just 17 of our quaint British pounds!Anybody have any opinions on this?My (very patchy) Chopin "collection" includes Pollini, Ashkenazy, Sokolov, Sofronitsky, Lugansky, Solomon (+ 1 or 2 others) but the only Rubinstein is a couple of CDR copies of the Nocturnes.
