The Santoro symphonies should be right down my alley. Hopefully they will not overlap with the BIS discs.

Don't fear, they do not:

The two Santoro symphonies on Naxos do NOT overlap with the two Santoro symphonies previously released on BIS (4 and 9). Naxos says that this begins a complete cycle of all 14 symphonies.

Obviously, when they complete the full cycle of 14, there will be a bit of overlap - but not a lot! A really enormous amount of unrecorded music, there.

Brian: there was blood and a single gunshot, but just who shot who?!

So that's a buy for you?  ;D ;D

Oh, yes!! Excellent news! I’ve been waiting for more recordings of his music ever since the BIS recording of Symphonies 4 and 9 years ago!

MORE MARCH



I'm not sure how close he is to completing the series. I'd probably be quite keen on a box set...

A very important April Big Box:



69 CDs (nice!)

And - no offense - a very unimportant April Big Box:



70 CDs. Of probable interest: Prokofiev and Liszt concertos with Michel Beroff, the complete Liszt tone poems, and uhhhh I'm not sure what else.

His Teldec recordings of Mahler and Shostakovich, his EMI Mendelssohn cycle...

I actually have enough of the recordings in that set that I don't need it.

How much of the Mitropoulos box is mono and how much stereo?

Amazon.de doesn't say, so I hope one of our resident history buffs knows the answer. By the way, my PM box is no longer full (subscription was processed).

I have Masur doing the Liszt tone poems.

I’m fairly sure it’s Liszt that bores me rather than Masur…

An apparent alternative cover.



More from the Francescas.  Here's to hoping they record all core rep.



Now that's a cover shot.



And that's pretty good, too.

Mitropoulos did not live long enough to make many stereo recordings.  At his best, the intensity of his conducting makes up for the lack of stereo.

I'm hoping these are all new remasterings, up to the standards of the other Sony historical boxes.  I was disappointed in the Shostakovich (Syms 5 & 10) and Berlioz (Symphonie fantastique) CDs I got from Japan.

FWIW, the tone poem that I very recently chose to reacquaint myself with, Héroïde funèbre, may be one of the more boring ones.

I seldom am, but when I am, it's probably the harpsichord suites.

A very welcome release indeed! I didn't know that Santoro had composed more than 10 symphonies, and if Naxos wants to record all of them is because is worth the investment.
Music is life, and like it, inextinguishable.

I love the vast surface of silence; and it is my chief delight to break it.

Me too - those are really nice...  :)

But I think we're covered, with many good interpretations available.
