No. It had generally very good receptions, but some critics noted an overuse of percussion, so I made other priorities. But with the new issue I decided to dip my toes.

Wait, are those recordings no good?  I was thinking of getting this collection, but I don't remember any warnings about it.
Don't worry, they are good recordings. Copland conducting Copland is fairly self-recommending, although you won't want to throw away your Bernstein/NYPO, Orpheus CO Appalachian Spring, or Slatkin/Naxos type albums.

The Poulenc disc is great. I recently played it again.

I also ordered these:

Yeah, I've seen you mention it before and I like these Poulenc works anyway. Have you heard this Debussy disc?

Have not, but I have really liked everything from Immerseel/Anima that I've heard (Schubert, Haydn, Berlioz).

Well from what I've heard of this Debussy disc so far, you'll really enjoy this one, too. The first movement of La Mer is what I sampled and it sounded absolutely fantastic. Such clarity in all of instruments and when that climax towards the end rises up --- it's a thing of pure wonderment.

Pounds the table! I really wish more of Giannini's music was recorded. Are you familiar with this excellent Naxos disc?

This just arrived.



And I'm thrilled to bits.  It's a 1980s compilation of 1970s performances, I think from when Previn had a TV show. I had it on cassette years ago, and I used to play it to death. I spontaneously decided to see if I could get a CD copy a week or two ago.

Whoever was responsible for the sequencing of this deserves a medal.  Especially for the first half.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Surprised to see this purchase from you, Karlo, but if you didn't own any of these ballets already, then they are, IMHO, essential acquisitions anyway.
