What a coincidence! My father too saw Böhm conduct Così at Covent Garden in 1979. He also reported how frail the conductor appeared, but was also fascinated by the performance.
Good evening, Iota and Olivier!

Good evening, ritter! And thanks for sharing, what a nice coincidence!  :) I was young and it was that night I fully fell in love with Cosi, and remained so ever since.
Thanks too for your, as usual, interesting background information. I hadn't realised the pioneering role Bohm played with Cosi.

I have nice memories of Plasson's Perichole, which I had on LP as a teenager, and of course I already have a recording of Hoffman,  but otherwise all these works will be new to me.

First purchase in a couple months.  Some dirt cheap Evidence downloads, and a nicely priced download of Fluffy's 52 Tristan.

…which is a superb performance! The early days of “New Bayreuth” at its best. Hope you enjoy it.

Good evening to you, Todd.

This performance has received high praise as long as I've known about it, but I just have not bought it until now.  All of Karajan's Wagner that I've heard is excellent - or better.  I can think of no better Parsifal or Meistersinger, and his Ring is bested only by Krauss.  His studio Tristan is quite fine.  I do have high expectations for this.  (I should probably get the other operas pretty soon.)

Landed today (and markedly earlier than expected)
Oh, and it was priced at $27.79 when I ordered it. Now it's been hiked up to $65.64

Arrived today; unfortunately, the first disc seems to be defective (won't play at all).

In a recent audit of my collection I found that I owned six different recordings of Mahler's 10th, and only two of his 1st. Had to try and level the playing field a bit and expand my options so picked up what seems to be generally accepted as one of the best...

I like the way that Kubelik and his way with woodwinds helps to bring out the Bohemian/Czech origins of early Mahler. This is also true of his Fourth - you can hear Dvorak in the background.
