Pounds the table! This has become two of my favorite performances of both concerti. Enjoy!

Just bought the Warner/Tower Records hybrid SACD set of Klemperer's Mahler:



I have an older French issued EMI set of this partial cycle and adore it, but figured this would be a nice upgrade.

They look very nice but I stick with my old EMI CD's.  :)

I recently listened to Klemperer's M2 and the sound quality was out of this world!  I thought it must have been a fresh remaster, and this seems to confirm it.

Definitely looking forward to it, guys. I have a new remaster of Klemperer's Das Lied von der Erde and I'm quite happy with it, so I'll be interested to hear how it compares with this Warner/Tower Records remaster.

Great to know John! I'm looking forward to playing it. I like both concertos (concerti).

Boy, CDCDCD must've kicked in pretty hard for this purchase, Jeffrey. ;) Not that I'm not guilty of this myself. :) I just bought the last installment of the this Elder series yesterday (Sinfonia Antarctica, Symphony No. 9).

From Foyles in London (where I’m on a short business trip):


This will be my first serious exposure to Elisabeth Lutyens music.


For the Malipiero and the Ghedini concerti, but also for the orchestral version (I know the version with piano accompaniment) of Casella’s Notturno e tarantella, which is not even mentioned on the front cover.

And used (Foyles has a small section of secondhand CDs):

There’s some superb recordings of Ravel’s “second” (in terms of popularity, that is) opera, with Maderna (on Testament) and Rosenthal (on INA Mémoire Vive) standing out IMHO, but Cluytens is a favourite conductor of mine, and somehow I expect Denise Duval to excel as Concepción (plus the presence of that great tenor is Jean Giraudeau is an additional bonus).

And ordered from Amazon Spain yesterday:

The correspondence between Argentine aristocrat, publisher and patron of the arts Victoria Ocampo and Ernest Ansermet. The conductor was Ocampo’s protégé in Argentina, she performed Honegger’s Le Roi David under his baton in Buenos Aires, and they remained lifelong friends.

Landed today


My inventory of Takemitsu probably doubled with this, and a heavy dose of Messiaen,  but there's also 3 CDs of Chopin and Beethoven's Opus 61a, several Mozart PCs, two recordings of BWV 988, and what seems to be a Buddhist oratorio by Peter Lieberson (King Gesar).

This, alluded to by Brian, seems like pure gold.



Actually, I recall that I have one volume from this set, containing the arrangement of A German Requiem.
