    I bought the SACD when those MLP discs were in print.

    I have those RCA performances. It's been years since I've played it, I went to the MLP for not only its performance but its excellent recording quality. I'll play the RCA set the next time I want to hear them.

    Yeah, it's weird how Spotify lists the artist as Johannes Brahms, Amadeus Quartet, Karl Leister, Christoph Esencbach. Amadeus Quartet would have sufficed.

    Another great LP from Philips featuring Arthur Grumiaux, dated 1966 and made in Holland. Performance and sonics are both superb.

    G.F. Handel: Six Sonatas for Violin, Op.1, first published in Amsterdam in 1724.

    Arthur Grumiaux, violin, with Robert Veyron-Lacriox, harpsichord.

  8. I have these recordings in Sony Classical's complete set. I picked that up in Avignon, France for €20, one of the biggest bargains ever. I love his recordings of concertos #15, 17 and 21.

    Good for you! That's awesome. Now you'll have another memory of that beautiful city....:sigh:

    He is still one of my favourite pianists for Mozart. I think he has a great understanding of Mozart...

  12. Yes, a wonderful city indeed. Lots of great memories and many excellent CDs, some from the street markets but most from the Fnac in the Rue de la République. Still worth a visit last time round (April 2016).

    This overpriced ($35) Speaker Corners remastered LP certainly sounds good, and the playing is phenomenal.

    I love that cover! How does the sound and performance compare to the Karajan/Richter/Oistrakh recording? (If you won both.)

    Thanks. It's an old collection-- that is, I don't add much to it these days, especially being retired. Records are shelved all over the house in 3 rooms, 3 closets, and in the basement. Finding something can be a challenge, as I don't have any of it cataloged on computer-- just a basic by-period/by-composer shelving system... and my memory.

    And, oh, the memories sparked by the music and the physical albums. I could never get that from downloads...

    Hey! I love this performance. I prefer it to the Richter/Oistrach/ Rostropovitsch under Karajan.
    But it is also really good.

    On the TT.....:tiphat:

    This EMI Electrola German pressing sounds nice too.

    Personally, I prefer Third Stream artists like Jacques Loussier

    Jacques Loussier Trio-Pastorale in C minor

    That's so cool! My small collection is also filed like that. Period, composer, solo, orchestral.....

    Here's the photo of where I have the classical music. The IKEA shelves are getting full.

    I had to migrate Opera and opera boxsets to this unit that holds a few books as well.

    [​IMG]

    And in this unit I have classical boxsets and a small collection of rock/ jazz stuff (just a few of his various multiples I got from my husband, don't even know why, since I mostly play classical/ opera on my TT and love to hear that other stuff on his TT ). Notice my Time Life 'Foods of the World' cookbook collection. Near mint and for only $ 10 CAD a piece! Very, very proud of that. Another amazing lucky find in our local used books store.

    Forgot to mention....I also don't enjoy downloads. I do own a tablet and an iPod, but that's only to work out or bike - or to stream to the boombox when I am cleaning our bathroom/kitchen. I need the physical thing of an LP or CD to make me happy completely.
