    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.

    Jando was a Naxos regular a couple decades ago. I have his complete set of Beethoven sonatas. Reviews were lukewarm.

    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

    Does anyone have a favorite vinyl pressing of The Planets that I might want to be on the lookout for?

    My favorite of the many in my collection is the MHS pressing from the early 80's. On translucent vinyl at that!
