    Does anybody know the artist/title of this music?

    RIP Warren Miller.
    The music is contemporary. Good luck in your search for who the composer is since it does not look like there was a soundtrack released for this one of his films.

    I can use Shazam later to see if it can figure it out. I’m on my phone now and can’t do YouTube in the background.

    I didn’t know he died. That clip sure is a blast from the past. Boy have things changed.

    Gathering Crowds ("This Week In Baseball" Theme) by John Scott. So a TV theme song from the 70s.

    I pre-ordered the 2nd volume of the DG Jochum set from Amazon Germany, as it was the cheapest price at the time. It was supposed to arrive last month but never did. I contacted them and they said they would reship. They did and I got a message it would arrive tomorrow. Today I checked the tracking and it had been returned to them. I checked my order on Amazon.de and it said a refund would be given. But I never received notice of this. It seems an odd way of doing business.

    Now enjoying the Fantasie for Piano and Orchestra from the above box. The pianist is Ciccolini. Earlier, I very much enjoyed the Scriabin concerto from the following CD (with big thanks to @Rose River Bear for the recommendation.)

    And I plan to finish off the night with La Mer from this CD:

    Awesome that you like the Scriabin performance. I think I have some of the Debussy Martinon performances on single discs.

    No, I love it!

    I picked up this Brilliant Classics box back when they were reissuing everything under the sun for cheap.

    @George P any favorite recordings of Davidsbundlertanze? This multifaceted work seems to be quite tricky to find someone that plays all the small pieces with the contrast it requires.

    Try and find one of Gieseking's recordings of it.

    This is a wonderful recording. The performances are excellent and the recorded sound is great. Gabriel Schwabe is a master in my opinion.

    I ordered this a few weeks ago, but they were sold out. It arrived yesterday. The review in Gramophone hints that this could be the top recording of these works. That is easy for me to believe.

    Great! Always nice when one of the best recordings is also one of the cheapest!

    I was only able to find one PD label recording on Andromeda for online sampling (I did like what I heard), if you know of a specific disc I'll keep my eyes open. I'll post up what I thought of a few different interpretations later this weekend.
