And certainly more frequently than I reach for Karajan! I'd forgotten the earlier Mackerras Mozart recordings were on Telarc. Don't have any from that cycle of the syms. (my "complete" set is the old affair by Leinsdorf from Westminster, reissued as bargain-basement "double decker" releases by MCA fairly soon after CD established itself), but I do have and greatly enjoy Mackerras's Telarc account of the "Posthorn" Serenade. In general, what I see emerging is that Telarc was like just about any other label--it had its winners and losers. With the exception of Mackerras, the former appear to have been in the nature of "one-offs" more often than not. Maybe even Mackerras wasn't an exception; did he record anything for the label besides the Mozart cycle? Anyhow, even if the balance was tipped more to losers than winners, that doesn't take away from the good stuff. Thinking back on it, I'm fairly certain--and somebody please correct me if I'm misremembering--Telarc started off as a limited distribution label available only in venues like "high end" stereo stores. I wonder what percentage of the records we've been citing as "winners" come from that era as opposed to after the label became readily available in regular record shops?
