Quote from: Roasted Swan on October 23, 2019, 02:00:15 AMI was sad to read of Raymond Leppard's death - although I was also quite surprised to realise he was in his nineties. There are so many of his recordings that have enriched my musical listening life. All Bax admirers will be forever indebted to him for:&It might be a case of "1st love" but I'm not sure his Nos. 5&7 have ever been beaten. But so much else besides. They might have been superseded but I remember at college playing his performing edition of Cavalli's La Calisto. The first time I'd ever encountered baroque opera - a genre that to be honest does not interest me a lot - but I loved the exuberant colour of Leppard's instrumentation and continuo parts. Obviously for many years his ECO/Phillips recordings were the competition for Marriner/St Martins on Argo and I enjoy - and still enjoy both.
