Glad you enjoyed this set.  :)

I sure did, Ray. You came up trumps once again with your recommendation  ;)  8)

nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.
His only competition was with himself. — Françoise Gilot

Symphonies & String Symphonies - ending up my perusal of recordings in my Felix collection and over the years of culling have ended up w/ duplications of the genres shown below - looking on Amazon there seem to be a lot of other (often partial) options but I've been happy listening to portions of these boxes today - attached reviews are quite good also for those interested.  Please respond if anything in recent years has emerged in these orchestral areas -  8)  Dave

Here's a recent performance by yours truly and the fantastic pianist Érico Freire Bezerra of Mendelssohn's rather underrated Sonata for Cello and Piano no. 1 in B-flat. It's full of Mendelssohn's trademark pulsating energy and life-affirming spirit, not to mention gorgeous melodies and tight motivic construction: https://youtu.be/KrgPn8Yi0u4
