    Appreciate it! We probably won't get to it until the Spring, but I've been urged to find more such trails.

    This is my favorite...I like Reiner's tempos, his ability to get so much charm out of the Game of Pairs, and the thrill of the Finale.

    This morning I'm reminded of how lovely the Adagio is in Mozart's Violin Sonata No. 27 (KV 379). Have several versions of this but I always come back to Podger and Cooper. The tempo is just perfect.

    One of my most favorite pieces of music ever in an appropriately full blooded, high contrast, hyper-Romantic performance--

    Johannes Brahms: String Quintet No. 1 in F major, Op. 88

    Bravo! I ended up buying the complete box set (which is sadly not SACD) but I'd love to have the individual titles. A terrific collection.

    Really? I bought all the individual SACD's in the series. Why wouldn't all the SACD's be released in a single box? :confused:

    A fine haul indeed and Happy Birthday from me too ...

    I have the Brendel which is a really lovely lp, enjoy ...
    The Bartok re-issue looks interesting - 100% analogue is always a good start.
