    A funny thing just happened. I didn't see the picture in your original post of this, so I 'examined' the web page code and copied the link to it, and opened it as a web page. I saw the picture. Then I closed that page and returned here. Now I can see all your pictures. Weird. :)

    Similar thing happened to me. I couldn't see his images until I quoted his post, then it appeared. When I went back and refreshed the page, all of the images now showed correctly. Weird indeed!

    No my wife’s family is here. We only come here when a game isn’t on.

    Chopin Nocturnes Op.9, 15, 27, 32, 37 (CD 1) by Rubinstein. These were recorded between 1936-1937 and transfers were by Marina and Victor Ledin. I can't say I have any strong thoughts on early Rubinstein Chopin Nocturnes vs the later ones he for RCA in '65 (or was it '67) performance wise other than the RCA are superior recording quality.

    And also played Brahms Piano Sonata No. 3, Op. 5. My favorite Brahms solo piano piece magnificently played by Julius Katchen. I will never tire of hearing this performance.

    I bought the Itzhak Perlman Complete Warner box. I have a handful of Perlman CDs though I wouldn't really consider myself a big fan (IMO he can play a bit loose in some of his later recordings), the box was attractively priced and like many of these performer boxes they record lesser known works they like.

    I can see the Katchen/Brahms image, but the other one.

    Thanks. Strange, now I can see it in the quote in my post above. Spooky... I wonder what's going on, leftovers from Halloween?

    Well, that picture of Rubinstein does after all look like Dracula from the old movies...

    A thrilling performance and great sound from the Analog Productions remastering.

    I bought some interesting LPs today at a thrift shop — Vols. 2, 3, 6 & 7 of Beethoven’s String Quartet cycle performed by the Quattor Schaffer (umlaut over the a). So far, these performances sound really good, but I have not been able to find out much about this quartet, other than a brief mention by Tully Potter in The Beethoven Project that says “ and the Schaffer Quartet did a splendid cycle for the French Musidisc label“.
    The personnel of this group is Kurt Schaffer (violin), Franzjosef Maier (violin), Franz Breyer (viola) and Kust Herzbruch (cello). Maier’s name seemed familiar and he was a principal of Collegium Aureum a while back.
    So, that’s it. Anyone know anything more about the Quattuor Schaffer? TIA
