But that small order was preceded by a much larger Amazon order...

Two of them were tips from vandermolen








I'm sure you'll enjoy the Kurland Sounds CD Jeffrey - it is a favourite of mine as is the BIS American symphonies CD.

Classicalgeek--just remember that there's a concertos CD that completed the Gilbert cycle--I think it's the best of the four by several degrees.

Nice! Who played the Clarinet Concerto, do you recall?

Unfortunately, BRO didn't have the concertos disc, or I'd have picked that up too! Karl, to answer your question, the soloist in the Clarinet Concerto was Anthony McGill.

I haven't ordered from Berkshire Record Outlet in at least ten years, so in my reacquisition frenzy, I had to pay them a visit.



Given my ongoing exploration of George Lloyd, I ordered some of his symphonies and concertos. The score to Brian's 'Gothic' is now available on IMSLP; I like to listen with the music in hand (or on my computer screen), and Brabbins' is a better performance than the Slovak forces on Marco Polo. I'd heard good things about Gilbert's Nielsen cycle, same thing about the Brahms chamber music on Hyperion. And of course right now I'm really into Koechlin's orchestral music, so I was thrilled to find this Hanssler disc cheap! I hope BRO gets the other CDs in Holliger's Koechlin series in stock.

It will take some restraint not to place an order in the next few weeks... I'm still eyeing several of the big conductor boxes (Muti, Mehta on Warner or Sony, Previn) as a way to get some core repertoire relatively inexpensively. Must... resist...

Some superb stuff there! I give my seal of approval to each of them.

The Parry (from the Lyrita one) and the whole Rota are marvelous.

Sure. Googled it, and spotted it at La Boîte à Musique. Now hope they deliver.  :)

With the threat of Naxos prices going up in October, taking advantage of one last clearance sale from Europadisc.



The Scarlatti recital is from Benjamin Frith. The Lutoslawski is a very longtime personal favorite I play every year for the season, but up to now, it's all been streaming. Including shipping, these average out to the old price of $9 each. (The English cello miniatures disc is only listed for $3.50 so that's just something cheery to play in the car on the way to get takeout meals.)

Plus Europa had a few more things on sale that I grabbed.



Blurry Orfeo stuff is Sandor Vegh Haydn 101-2-3-4.

Also grabbing this off Amazon to finish off my Naxos list.

Seems to be a respectable company. Do they accept payment via Paypal?

The Soler and Respighi look interesting. I have the Guarnieri and Duarte and I like them a lot.
