Some new CD'S, and a few I had to reorder, because somehow the firm did not send them.

John Bull was recommended by Que.
Gustav Jenner, was an unknown to me, but his music is gorgeous.
Eklund came recommended by Jeffrey, and rightly so.
Schreker is a new series on CPO, with a promise to record all his orchestral works. the samples sounded spectacular. Love his music.
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.

Glad you liked the Eklund Harry!
Must give it another listen to.

As far as I know, the Rhapsodische Symphonie and Sinfonietta Capricciosa are works by Paul Juon, not by Kabalevsky. 😁

Quite right, Cesar; I had the same thought. Which reminds me, I’ve been meaning to give those works a listen. ;)

My British retailers seems to not carry the Eklund (yet) and I try to avoid amazon. Meanwhile, from presto, another in an ever dwindling number of orders:

Time to become more selective and actually listen to stuff.  ::)

Cascade of approving octaves

This is the 8th (I think) complete Chopin set I acquire, but given the rave reviews De Maria got here on GMG by knowledgeable people I just had to have it. And if a 9th appears, I'll probably get that too. One can never have too much Chopin. :)
