Thanks for the interesting comments , Tassos. Much appreciated.

This was my reaction when I listened to the PC4 earlier this year:
I'm not sure I finally made it to listen to the VC-turned-into-a-PC. Should do so soon (sonce, like you, I really enjoy the work).

Regards,

Thank you for your thoughts on that recording, Rafael. The deviations from the published score are, as you said, interesting and I agree that they do not add to the intrinsic quality of the work - it really shows how distilled and marvelous and inevitable/definitive the published version really is. I hope that that second listen yielded more positive feelings overall regarding the interpretation; though not essential, I did find it a worthwhile reading. And we can never have too many recordings of Op. 61a! 😎

It is the first and only set of Planets I listened to in one sitting, having never been convinced by that work before.

Very glad you discovered this! It is my favourite version of The Planets. And Grainger's The Warriors is an inspired companion piece (in an equally superlative rendition).

Holst: The Planets (Chicago Symphony Orchestra / James Levine)



I bought this 2004 release so I can compare the sound of it to the original 1990 release.

I've become obsessed with this symphony - especially the ghostly night-ride of the finale and the beautiful hymn-like passage which ends the work.

His finest essay in the genre, no doubt.

You might want to try his take on Die Schoene Muellerin, it's in the form of a six movement string quartet (a chamber tone poem so to speak) and much more optimistic than Schubert's.  :)

Not a purchase, but I received the Dresden Jochum Bruckner set as a birthday gift.  I used to own and treasure it on cd before it was all streaming.

They are, and all on period instruments.  :)

I'm kind of picky in  Schumann - sofar my Golden Standard in Schuman is Sviatoslav Richter.

Tobias Koch's approach is different, but I quite like it.

Yep. 2 bucks:



More expensive and much less music.
I call that price gouging.
