    I get that....I don't dislike, hate her in any way....but I wouldn't go out of my way to include her interpretations in my collection.

    I know! It's pretty cool and I certainly feel very lucky!

    I will be going as much as I can, during the week after my bike rides - treating myself with just a few I can carry in my backpack (no more than 10) - ,on the weekend with husband and car.

    This Fragonard painting was used as a visual/color reference for the Disney movie Tangled. A representation of it later appears in the Disney movie Frozen. :)

    She was excellent in the Spanish repertoire. I have a couple of her Schubert and Schumann recordings on vinyl. She also had excellent Decca sonics on most of her issues. I don't think she was ever considered an A list pianist though. As I mostly listen to solo piano I can't really comment on recordings with orchestra.

    This entire disc! I love Mussorgsky's own orchestration of Night on Bald Mountain in Reiner's hands.

    I do not have any singles by her. Whatever I now have came with that Colin Davis RCA Legacy box ...

    My only de Larrocha recording is this one included in the Decca Sound - The Analogue Years box.

    The two bonus tracks are Faure: Fantaisie Op. 11 and Franck: Variations Symphoniques which seem out of place on a "Spanish Concertos" album.

    It would have made more sense to replicate this CD tracklist.

    Whew, he's quite a fine player. "The Firebird" almost defies belief!

    Actually, I haven't gone out of my way. I have 16 of her CDs , including a 7-CD Decca 'The Art of Alicia de Larrocha' box, all of which I came across in the used bins. Maybe that means others didn't think they were worth keeping, but I'm glad they recycled them.

    What is A list, anyway? Most of the reviews I've read of her work were highly positive. I have 11 CDs of her Decca recordings & 5 of her later RCA work.

    Good for you. If I find a LP this summer of her Spanish composer interpretations....I will get it and see what I think of it. Mozart definitely not .

    Is that based on hearing her Mozart? I'm not trying to argue taste (we all know it can't be done), just curious.

    A fine recording made for Reader's Digest, 3/31/67, Walthamstow Town Hall, London. Producer: Charles Gerhardt. Engineer: Kenneth Wilkinson. This 1980 reissue was supervised by Teresa Sterne & remastered by Terry Dunavan. I also have this in a 3-CD Reader's Digest Beethoven box. By the way, I didn't violate my $1 limit; got this in a 25-cent sale.
