Thoughts? I know absolutely nothing of the composer except that he's a major name in early Baroque (or would it be late Renaissance?) keyboard music, but this is going for very cheap.

Well, back in 2009, I started a thread on Frescobaldi HERE - up to 5 pages now, so might be a good start - interestingly, my image posts on that opening thread were of the first two Brilliant volumes; since then, I've added Vols. 5 & 10, the latter in your post above.  I'll have to explore those other volumes - now have just those 4 sets.  Dave :)

ADDENDUM: Loreggian's 'Complete Frescobaldi Edition' has been available for a while and was just wondering why I had collected only 4 volumes (V. 1,2,5,10 - corresponding to CDs 1,2,3,4,7,8,14,15 in the listing below); well, the Masses, Madrigrals, and other vocal works were not of interest to me.

Me too, it has some polytextual motets. At the same time I ordered this, which I hadn't seen either. I have no idea what it is, but it was less that £5 delivered!

That is a fine set if one was interested in those areas of the composer's music.

It's a liturgical play as written on the cover. I have ordered it too (12 Euros delivered).

Hi Aligreto - agree completely, i.e. a great box set!  I just don't listen to a lot of vocal stuff from that era, just prefer the instrumental recordings, BUT have absolutely no objections to those who praise the other works.  Dave :)

Cheers, Dave. Yes, not everybody's cup of tea.

Quatuor Danois in Debussy and Ravel's String Quartets - anyone have any thoughts? I can't find a place to stream/sample this. Thanks.

I found the Debussy unusual; a constant high wire nervousness throughout, not a great performance, just came off as under rehearsed if not off the mark.

A famous old series:


I’ve considered a buy, but I think I have 2/3 of its contents on individual discs. And those have excellent notes, so I wouldn’t buy the set and sell the separate discs. Decisions, decisions... ::)
