My latest arrival....Bach..can't go wrong...And nice smooth and sonorous playing....
Just recommended this to another member and figured I would give it another spin.
1962. I think this is Rampal's best version of the Bach Flute Sonatas. The sound is excellent. disc 5 of the first Erato Rampal box set.

On Sirius XM today, I heard segments of Schubert's A Major piano sonata (no. 20) performed by one Shai Wosner (as the announcer had it; the SoundHound application on my phone identified it as being by Jeno Jando). I must say, what I heard caught my attention; while the pianist did not capture the force of the more dramatic passages in the way my benchmark Friedrich Wuhrer did, presumptive-Wosner's general sound world was right on the money. Anybody here familiar with his work more generally? I'll confess to having heard nothing else played by him, at least not knowingly.
Haven't heard him, sorry.
Eisner has some interesting looking recordings. Shai Wosner, Piano - Recordings
Jando was a Naxos regular a couple decades ago. I have his complete set of Beethoven sonatas. Reviews were lukewarm.
London Symphony Orchestra
Franck: Symphonic Variations for Piano and Orchestra
I saw Watts play Todtentanz and the 5th Brandenburg when I was a lad, many years ago.
Jenö Jandó (born 1952) has recorded practically every composition for solo piano that has ever been written. Well, that's probably a bit exaggerated, but he comes close
Shostakovich - All Symphonies (110th Anniversary Edition)
Listened earlier to:
Symphony No. 4 in C minor, op. 43
Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra
Conductor: Kirill Kondrashin
Recorded in 1966
And just as this great sprawling symphony ended, my next-door-neighbors took advantage of the lovely weather and indulged in some outdoor recreation, accompanied by recorded popular music with Spanish lyrics, played at a volume to be appreciated by the neighborhood at large. Even with my headphones on, I had no refuge, though I'll admit that at least some of the music was enjoyable. Rain came, the party ended or perhaps migrated indoors, and my listening continues.
Symphony No. 5 in D minor, op. 47
USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra
Conductor: Evgeny Svetlanov
Recorded in 1977
Symphony No. 6 in B minor, op. 54
Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra
Conductor: Yevgeny Mravinsky
Recorded live at the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, 27 January 1972
Now enjoying Rachmaninoff's second concerto, played by Kemal Gekic and the Czech NSO, conducted by Libor Pešek.
Does anyone have a favorite vinyl pressing of The Planets that I might want to be on the lookout for?
New or vintage?
Here's my favorite, on a 1971 DG pressing.
My favorite is by Ozawa and the Boston Symphony on Philips from 1980.
I would be open to new or vintage.
My favorite of the many in my collection is the MHS pressing from the early 80's. On translucent vinyl at that!
Dmitri Shostakovich – Symphony No.10 in E minor Op.93
— WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln – Rudolf Barshai (Brilliant Classics)
