    I have not. My surround set up is in storage since the living room in my new house is not ideal for surround speakers and my man cave is too small.

    I am so NOT a Tebaldi fan, so that just won't do, Mr. coop. Nope. You need at least a couple of recordings from that Greek-American soprano we were talking about.

    Yes, I'm obsessed. Yes, I'll look into finding a support group. No worries.

    Oh. Well, OK. I honestly and truly thought you meant a "clique," Bubba. Like in this Wiki excerpt:

    "Members of a clique often isolate themselves as a group and tend to view the clique as superior to anyone outside the clique."

    My bad.

    I don't know if you knew, but there is vintage Géza Anda documentary on Youtube.

    In the second half, you see him recording Schumann's Davidsbündlertänze in Vienna in 1966 for Deutsche Grammophon. Looking at DG's discography, that means producer Karl Faust and Karajan's sound engineer, Günter Hermanns, are also in the film. Amazingly relaxed atmosphere in the recording studio (starts at about 44:00): they smoke cigarettes, listen to playback, discuss the philosophy of splicing tape and then kind of reluctantly decide to do another take. :laugh:

    Here is a Symphonie fantastique more to my liking, with much better sound than the 80s Muti/Philadelphia recording I posted recently.
    Symphonie recorded 11/28/59, Cass Technical High School, Detroit. Others recorded 3/24/58, Old Orchestra Hall, Detroit. Recording Director: Wilma Cozart. Musical Supervisor: Harold Lawrence. Engineer: C. Robert Fine. 1993 CD transfer supervised by Wilma Cozart Fine.

    Until you mentioned it, I had not thought about little one hears the name Géza Anda today.
    Back in the day, if you went into a record shop that carried Deutsche Grammophon, they had something with Géza Anda.

    Thinking about Géza Anda, I'm going to play Mozart's Concerto No.24 from the box below.
