    Well, that's just it--I don't think there is a pattern; it's more a matter of serendipity as one or another of the "lesser lights" surfaces on some (usually) small specialist label. Of course, I suppose it's just possible that I'm mistaken... ;)

    Off to work. Have a great and musical day, everyone!

    (As one of my high school teachers liked to say, "I made a mistake once. I thought I was wrong, but it turned out I was right after all.)

    Lucky you! Where's the "I'm jealous" emoticon thingy when you need it? :)

    My house is in the crowded DC suburbs, cheek-by-jowl to the not-always-quiet neighbors either side (but at least detached!), and even in the dead of night I hear trucks barreling by on the Washington beltway a mile away. I've done what I can to keep noise levels low (low noise furnace/AC system in our music room addition, for instance), but in a semi-urban setting there's only so much. Maybe I just need to take the "fight fire with fire" approach and stick to things like Glinka's "Travelling Song," Honnegger's "Pacific 231" and Glass's "Short Ride in a Fast Machine"?

    Argerich playing Schumann Piano Concerto from the Complete DG Recordings box. Slower than what Schumann marked on his score, but still enjoyable. Richter/Rowicki remains my personal go to.

    Last night I listened to Schmidt Symphony No.4 by Mehta and the Vienna Philharmonic from 1972 on Decca. Excellent recording.

    Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini is one of those pieces I've heard just too many times, like Tchaikovsky's 1st piano concerto. I don't really like listening to it anymore.

    I hear you, but Mikhail Rudy was quite exceptional in these Rachmaninoff works ...
