    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:

    On the turntable this evening. Something I enjoy about this performance is the energy and unabashed romantic approach of soloist and orchestra...there is none of the sort of "classical restraint" here, it's "heart on the sleeve" and dramatic music making, and I never tire of listening to it.

    IMHO, the Jochum RCO combo is quite competitive against the Bohm VPO combo when it comes to the Beethoven 6th ...
