Amazon MP had two used copies listed. One for $13 including shipping, the other for $60 including shipping.
I'll give you two guesses which one I ordered, and the first does not count.

The Chicago SO web store is having a sale (50%-60% off), so I snagged a few recordings that looked interesting:



Thanks for the tip, John! Of course I had to jump on that same sale. ;D I ordered the following:





I've heard good things about both these recordings!

GREAT choices, classicalgeek! 8) Both of those recordings are top-notch. I think Muti's may very well be my favorite recording of the Babi Yar now --- even surpassing my reference Haitink/Concertgebouw.

An Amazon MP vendor dropped the price on this to $91 including s/h, so I ordered it.
[Supposedly their only copy, but Amazon itself and a couple of other vendors are offering it for under $100 if anyone else is interested. ETA: just noticed Rarewaves is offering it for the price I got.]

Enjoy! I hopefully have some more Daniel Pinkham cued up for next week.

I was happy to get them at a discount! Sometimes recordings on a orchestra's own label can be hard to get, or pricey, or both - so I couldn't resist. I've especially heard really good things about the 13th with Muti, so it's nice to know it lives up to its reputation!

I've developed an interest in old performance tradition, particularly French orchestras going back to the Mono Era. I've added two sets. The complete Charles Munch/Decca, and the complete Desormieres/Decca.

Some duplication with stuff already in my collection is inevitable, but other stuff is absent (e.g., de los Ángeles' second --stereo-- recording of La vida breve, the Dutoit El retablo de Maese Pedro, El amor brujo under Giulini, etc.), and the price was a seal at amazon.es:



Does this set include all or most of Falla's music?

Most, but certainly not all. Off the top of my head, it’s missing some early songs, small chamber and piano pieces, the incidental music to Calderón’s El gran teatro del mundo, the Balada de Mallorca for chorus (based on the andantino from Chopin’s Ballade No. 2), the ballet Fuego Fatuo (also on themes by Chopin). All this has been recorded by other labels, but is mostly OOP (and isn’t essential Falla by any means —perhaps the incidental music for Calderón’s play is the most interesting— ). There’s also an early zarzuela, Los amores de la Inés, which was revived in Madrid some years ago (and was almost unanimously received as a very weak and utterly boring work —I didn’t attend any performance— ) and has never been recorded AFAIK.

OTOH, in this set you get, next to their final versions, the original conceptions of El amor brujo and (as El corregidor y la molinera) The Three-Cornered Hat, which are very interesting. It also brings Atlántida, Falla’s final, incomplete work, back to the catalogue. The end result is a piece one could say was “co-composed” by Falla and Ernesto Halffter (IMHO an excellent composer in his own right, who devoted some 40 years of his life to complete his master’s swan song). I find it profoundly beautiful and endlessly fascinating…

There's not much of it to be begin with, but, yes, it looks complete or as complete as it could be. So much of his music exists in different arrangements whereas the bulk of what he wrote in small.

The last disc is music from British composer/singer Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian, which is a new discovery for me.
