    I also have this box but keep getting diverted. Some nice things inside that I want to hear.

    Who's his mom? I like Jonathan Biss, I have enjoyed his recording with the Orpheus CO where he plays Mozart 21 & 22 numerous times.

    Biss' mother is Miriam Fried, and his father is Paul Biss. Both are violinists and are on the faculty at Indiana University. Jonathan was born in Bloomington in 1980.

    Now Listening To

    Schubert. Piano Sonatas in G and C (incomplete). Alfred Brendel.
    Two late sonatas of Schubert. Very good sonics.

    Heads up for those with Sirius XM and an interest in Yuja Wang: I heard an announcement a little while ago that an interview with her will air on the "Symphony Hall" channel (no. 76, at least on my system) tonight at 6:00 PM Eastern. Evidently topics to be covered will include recording with Gustovo Dudamel.

    ...and his grandmother was Raya Garbousova, a celebrated cellist for whom Samuel Barber wrote his concerto. Quite the musical family.

    A wonderful fall morning with Schubert's works....
    How do you all like Quartet Mosaiques (if at all...)
    Any recommendations beyond their Haydn recordings?

    Which reminds me, except for his famous Adagio, I have no Barber on my shelf. :shake:

    He was singer, something of a rarity among composers whose output is not predominantly vocal. Of course, he did compose a substantial amount of vocal music, too, and he can be heard as the singer in his own "Dover Beach" with the Curtis Quartet, originally issued as Victor 8998, a 12" 78 RPM record.

    Barber is by no means my favorite composer, but I have around 20-25 of his works on records. Most, to be honest, are by lesser-known performers, but there's at least one notable exception: no less than Vladimir Horowitz championed Barber's piano sonata on Victor. And the song "The Monk and His Cat," which I mentioned playing a couple of nights ago, has been a favorite ever since I first heard it.

    Franck - Symphony in D Minor, Munch/BSO

    One of a half-dozen RCA Victrola reissues of Living Stereo albums I picked up for a buck each at the local thrift a few weeks ago.

    Speaking of broadcasts, the new Bayreuth Ring production with Petrenko conducting started on NPR's Opera of the Week today. (It may still be playing in some cities.) The conducting by Petrenko is exemplary, the best Wagner I have heard in many a year. The opening scene with the Rhinemaidens and Alberich was dramatically cogent and Alberich was sung excellently. Unfortunately the singing went downhill from there but Petrenko didn't.

    I decided against the box when I looked at the disc listing and realized I probably have 95% of the CD's as singles in my library and there are a few I really do not care much for ...

    I am really enjoying this CD, the singing is heavenly and I can finally listen to the music on the best sound system at my house after I replaced the NAD amp with the Conrad-Johnson amp a few days ago ...
