Possible, but my brain keeps pushing Stephen Collins's name at me.

Cut him some slack.  He's in is mid-forties.  The difference between 40 and 45 is scarily large!

I just went looking and found that.  Somehow I thought he was ten years younger than tha.  And somehow I thought he was blonde but he isn't.

There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Must be bioutiful, no doubt. But how many Bach integrals does one need ? My last one is Chapuis', and I sincerely hope it will be the last.  :P

I like this album -- especially the Missa fors Seulement. A very dark piece. Much more so than the Requiem or the Missa Prolationum.
Beethoven's Op. 133 -- A fugue so bad that even Beethoven himself called it "Grosse".

One more than one has.

This is likewise the answer to many similar questions.

Well, I do seem to suffer from CDEWCD - compulsive dissociative ex wife collecting disease.

Duty. Decided I needed new version of this music





I now have about 160 discs on order, so I need to stop, and turn myself in to the CDCDCD police.

I hope this doesn't mean that you've never heard Kocsis play the Sz. 80 Sonata before...

I did some comparative listening on YT when I was learning this piece a couple of years ago and I don't remember enjoying anyone nearly as much as Kocsis.

Will do! Looking forward to listening - wasn't quite convinced by "Alleluia" initially (she needs to train the pronounciation of consonants!), but I fell in love with the bell-like clarity of her voice nevertheless. The recent Pergolesi disc pairing her with Jaroussky is magic (and conductor Diego Fasolis promises another disc with more in the booklet!) ... so I knew I'd eventually have to get the Rossini disc. I don't have many Rossini aria discs yet anyway, Callas, Joyce DiDonate - I think that's it ... guess Bartoli might be worth a try?

Is it true that, despite the "complete" claim, there are two missing Ravel works?

Anyway, it has become my rule of recent years to ignore box sets of which I already own at least 10 CDs worth. And, since this one follows the "original covers" philosophy, with the corresponding shorter running times per CD, I suspect that I own considerably more than 10 of those CDs...
