I have one of those Mintz Vivaldi MHS CDs, although I think a different group of concertos. It's nice in an I Musici sort of way.

I love the cover of the Janacek piano works one!

I'll have to see if I can find some piano samples from that one.

Some Spanish (or Spanish-related) stuff, from specialised dealers in used CDs in Madrid's Rastro —the flea market held on Sundays— and in El Escorial:


José Cubiles enjoys an almost legendary status (at least locally) among Spanish pianists, but his recorded legacy is very scant. This CD, released by Spanish National Radio and Television, uses 1960 studio recordings —previously released on LP by RCA—. Only four numbers of Iberia are included —fortunately Almería is among them—, the rest of the CD being "minor" pieces from other collections by Albéniz.


Curious arrangements with cello octet accompaniment of some great Spanish songs (tonadillas by Granados —including the extraordinarily moving El majo olvidado—, Guridi's Six Castilian Songs), recorded by Teresa Berganza towards the end of her illustrious career, with the Cello Octet Conjunto Ibérico under Elías Arizcuren. The CD also has a purely instrumental (eight cellos) version of Falla's Love the Magician —the point of which I fail to grasp—.


My umpteenth recording of Master Peter's Puppet Show, with Carlos Álvarez under José Ramón Encinar. We also get Ibert's and Ravel's Don Quixote song cycles, and a purely orchestral piece by Guridi on the same character.


Music for string quartet and Las musas de Andalucía (for various instrumental combinations —with or without solo vocals—) by Joaquín Turina.

And from Amazon.es:


I was aware of Pablo Casal's Catalan-language Christmas oratorio El Pessebre (and of its 1972 recording from Puerto Rico under the composer) since my childhood, but had never gotten around to buy it until now (I didn't even know it had been transferred to CD).

Buenas noches, Rafael.
Me temo que no.... A first superficial listen to this CD (in the car during the drive back from El Escorial) left me unimpressed (but I still haven't tackled Las Musas de Andalucía, which is the major work on the CD).

OTOH, I am increasingly falling under the spell of Granados' music, which you may recall I tended to dismiss as too salon-bound (compared to Albéniz's). Errare humanum est... And even if Granados hailed from Catalonia, his Goya-inspired pieces are the musical expression of a certain idea of Madrid, of its esprit de lieu.

A minor piece of trivia: the man at the bookstore where I got this CD (and the Quijote one) in El Escorial, which I had driven to in order to buy a beautiful leather bound 1947 edition of selected works by Leopoldo Alas "Clarín", told me all the CDs he had were from the collection of Teresa Berganza herself, who died there earlier this year.


Buenas noches, Andrei, y un abrazo.

Quote from: Harry on December 03, 2022, 07:07:28 AMHat tip to Christo, he constantly showcasing this recording and telling how wonderful it is, I finally succumbed, and put it on my order list. And he is right by the way, Boyle's music is indeed wonderful.

Patience is not my strongest point, if it comes to music. I paid 39,95 euro for the Dvorak set. But it has no booklet, but the covers have all the timings, and I have a book about Dvorak's works, so the info is already provided for. The single discs through Ebay were in this case a liability, and even worse I would never had got them together for under 14 euro's, so in the end this is the best bargain. But apart from this I appreciated your search effort, and never took your search for granted. :-*
