    Going out of my mind on yet another Saturday trapped indoors by bad weather/some sort of freezing precipitation.....

    Been going through some NM mono DGs I picked up a couple of months ago. Particularly enjoyed this one:

    That's too bad that you have crappy weather....here's it's just the opposite. Simply a wonderful spring like day. 16 C ( 60 F) , sunny...awesome. So I haven't listened to music much but now we're home and I am going to indulge :goodie:

    On the TT.....:tiphat:

    I found a couple of those a few years ago Borodin, Straus, Mozart and Liszt. I had never seen them prior to that.

    The weather here is always very unpredictable ...the proximity to the Rocky Mountains is the culprit. We have a saying here....' if you don't like the weather....wait 5 minutes'.
    I remember a lyrics by Genesis.....When the evil of a snowflake in June can still be a source of relief'....
    I never understood what that meant and found it a bit absurd, until I moved here. Snow can come down ANY month of the year. It's unusual - but it happens!

    I hope your weather improves soon. Spring is very much needed, at least for me. I enjoy the outdoors so much.....and besides hopefully the 1 CAD record sale will start again :D.....can't wait to find more treasures and add to my collection.

    Hahaha...so is Glenn Gould!! Well belonging to any nationality / country is definitely not a guarantee to be liked but everyone. Ms. Hewitt has many fans and followers....I am just not one of them. :tiphat:

    These old tulip label recordings are so nice to own....there is something truly special about them. I have found only one so far during my digging. Several other tulip label, but with the more modern covers/ artwork etc...

    Well, sir, they've outdone themselves, then, on #2; the orchestra just shines throughout the entire work just brilliantly. I haven't ordered the complete set yet, but I could not find a new set from Europe for that $30 price mentioned above either.

    She played here a few months ago. I thought about going, but based on the recordings I had heard decided against it.

    All my sprouting tulips were wiped out by the last snowstorm, i.e. buried under 10" of snow ... :sigh:

    She has to have her fans or else Hyperion would not have requested her to record WTC's twice ...

    I have found these Beethoven Piano Sonatas by Lili Kraus to be quite good or do I need a hearing test? Your thoughts, George? :winkgrin:
