It's a great site, with so much that's cheaper than elsewhere - cataloguing/metadata is just a bit hit-or-miss; you may have to be prepared to search for things in several languages (French and German mostly) to find them.

Quote from: Lisztianwagner on December 02, 2022, 03:52:21 AMI haven't got many Szymanowski recordings and I would like to improve my knowledge of his piano music; I saw some members had this one, which actually looks intriguing as Zimerman is an excellent pianist; is it really worth buying or there are better recordings for Szymanowski'piano music?
Quote from: Todd on December 04, 2022, 08:46:18 AMIt is an outstanding Szymanowski recording. The main draw is the Masques, recorded almost thirty years ago, which is one of the very best Szymanowski recordings available. Zimerman also makes the Op 10 Variations on a Polish Folk Theme sound like a near-great work.There are other discs to consider, with images below. The Anderszewski disc, now around twenty years old, may be the single best Szymanowski piano disc in existence given the works and playing. Sinae Lee's complete set is the best of the three I have listened to (Jones and Roscoe being the other two), though I hope that one day someone else undertakes a similar project with up to date recorded sound and playing more like Zimerman or Anderszewski.

Quote from: SimonNZ on December 25, 2022, 06:55:25 PMAnyone heard the Huelgas Ensemble doing Rihm?Ordinarily I'd just snap up a HE disc I hadn't seen before, but this seems like possibly a hard turn for them.
Quote from: Jo498 on January 06, 2023, 11:58:22 AMIs this from the 1975 Chopin competition or a studio recording?
Quote from: SonicMan46 on January 23, 2023, 07:42:26 AMSO, how is this set packaged and how many discs are contained? Thanks - Dave
Quote from: Brian on January 23, 2023, 07:52:50 AMI have some 5 CD Brilliant Classics box sets in double jewel boxes like that. The way it works is that the "back cover" (where CD 4 goes) is a swivel hinge with another disc on the backside. It's like a hybrid of the old double jewel boxes with the new slim 2CD jewel cases used by labels like Hyperion.Come to think of it, I think I have a 6 CD box like that, with swivel hinges on both inside covers.Edit: oh and it's 5 CDs.
