These are the ones I am narrowing down to (and I'm leaning towards the 10 disc Italian box set, or the Alto recording, a combination of Rafael and Britten SQ ensembles).




I do believe I am going to get that Venezia String Quartet box.  Other than Verdi's string quartet and Puccini's Crisantemi, I am unfamiliar with any of these, but the addition of Boccherini, Bazzini, Respighi and Malipiero string quartets sounds enticing, and we'll be a surprise in a box to these ears.

Found it for $65 Canadian at Presto for the 10 disc set.  Pretty decent.  Thanks, Karl, for the hot tip.  8)

I have three recordings (Hagen/DG with Crisantemi and some opera fluff, Artemis with Brahms #2, Vogler with Lyric suite) but frankly, I don't care so much for the piece. Still couldn't decide to get rid of any of these recordings as they seemed all very good to me, though.
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

How about this one? The Brodskys rarely disappoint and you get the Wolf and Puccini too, along with some fun fillers.
