I have that on my list. It looks fantastic, so I hope your reports will be in that vein.
Be kind to your fellow posters!!

Trying to be less confused.  ;D
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Just bought:



Both are excellent discs, but I prefer the King of the Mountains, a delicious repast of folk dances and nature scenes. I love the Summer rain bit. This recording of the complete ballet is 80 minutes long and not a dull moment is in sight.

Good to hear, Andre. :) From what I've heard of this Alfven work (namely the suite), I enjoyed very much. Can't wait to hear the work in its entirety.

My expectations are high. I'll be sure to report back. I know the one recording I have heard, 106, was superb.
CamelCamelCamel alerted me to a used like new copy. Useful service, but dangerous.

I now have 4 complete sets. Time to sell Leusink I think.

May take some time. Postal service is s..l...o....w these days. I'm still waiting for the Liszt (Années de Pèlerinage/Lortie) I ordered May 18.  :-\

Big hat tip in Que's direction, for alerting me to this disc's existence ~

Finally hit a reasonable price-point for me. . .   ;)
Wise words from Que:

Never waste a good reason for a purchase....  ;)

Andras Schiff's new Schubert release inspired me to program my own little Shubertiade.  I figured I might as well throw in a few other items for fun.  (The two new Pictures will be compared to Maurizio Balini's recording.)

I have that Gevetadze CD someplace or other...I got it when it came out.  I remember the non Pictures items to be interesting.

Great!! :)

And I am hoping to do the same for the disc "Non e Tempo d'Aspettare", that you pointed out to me... :)

Urgent business took me to Brussels last Thursday, and for once I decided to stay in Belgium through Sunday. I thus missed Mahler's Sixth under Bychkov that I was looking forward to here in Madrid, but I had a great time (my daughter joined me for the weekend).

Well, all this introduction to say that in Bruges I stumbled onto what the blog On an overgrown path asked in 2008 whether it was the best record shop in the world ( here ), Rombaux. I can't answer that question, but it surely is one of the best I've ever been to.



Here's the result of my (totally unplanned and unexpected  ::) ) visit to that charming store:


Cherubini's pioneering "rescue opera" in a long OOP recording...


I had the Documents label's poor man's ersatz version of the complete Marcelle Meyer, but seeing the real thing at an affordable price was too much of a temptation to resist. The Documents set already has a new owner :) The beautifully produced "hommage" from Tahra, on the other hand, has this wonderful pianist doing things not on the EMI set (e.g., Casella, Petrassi, the Emperor concerto...)


Two OOP issues of Emmanuel Nunes, a recent discovery for me who's music is not easy to find.


Charles Bruck's pioneering Frencha-language recording of Prokofiev's superb opera, based on the (posthumous) world-première concert performances of the work.

That was Bruges. In Brussels, the shop at La Monnaie / De Munt is (temporarily?) shutting down due to renovation works at the opera house, and their vast inventory is being offered at discounts of 20% or more. Well, I luckily found volume 3 of Masaaki Suzuki's traversal of J.S. Bach's cantatas (also OOP in this format) at half-price. Now only volume 4 is missing from my collection  ;)

No more Concertgebouw anthologies? I despair of ever finding volume 3...

I guess it all depends on how much you want to pay....    >:D  0:)
Why not go for the full RCO collection? It is a gem!

I already own five separate volumes, otherwise I would consider it. Duplicating whole 14-disc sets is a stage of CDCDCD I don't ever want to reach...

(The whole thing came up because, if I remember correctly, the Brussels shop was where ritter bought some RCO anthologies at a really low price)

Should have posted this over the weekend.

The new Schubert Schiff CD, the same posted by Todd yesternight, plus these




Hat tip to Harry for the last one.
