    On the TT this evening: Chamber music of Ravel -- Sonata for Violin & Cello, and Trio for Piano, Violin & Cello.
    This is an EMI/Pathé Marconi LP, recorded and manufactured in France.

    I have the first 2 MLP boxes, so whatever is on there.

    Any particular reason you mention them, his performances on Mercury contradict what I said about his playing? Or just a general recommendation :)

    I like the Szeryng In Concert box as well:

    Nice picture, looks like steam off the water since the fog is so low to the water.

    Too late, you already did. Steve Hoffman Forums discourages talk of politics and the like. :)

    As my post shows I'm well aware of that, so there's no need to tell me. I was just saying that some things are universal, that's all. Back to the music and conversation.

    First listen to "Rosa Ponselle 1897-1981 - Volume 3" on Nimbus.

    Recordings From 1920-1939

    These CDs are produced by playing the 78 records using an acoustic horn gramophone, and recording the sound. :)

    There is a lively dispute here in the U.S. about monuments to the soldiers & statesmen of the late Confederate States of America.

    It fell from 60 here at midnight to 29 this morning at 9. Fortunately the freezing rain & ice that we feared did not materialize & we only got light snow. It's not supposed to get above freezing again until Monday.

    Not to mention that it is most likely a UK Decca era RCA pressing. Which also means better mastered and on quieter vinyl more carefully plated and pressed than a USA RCA Victor White Dog original pressing. Which equates to much better sounding Artur Rubinstein playing superb Chopin works. Which for me is McLover Approved. Less noisy, sounds better, and classical at it's best. Powerful and Poetic. The original US RCA Victor White Dog pressings when well cared for and pristine sound great, but a bit hissy.

    I've probably gone too far with this easy-listening classical, but I don't care. It's so pleasant, so relaxing. Too bad a tape is missing.

    Beautiful photo. And very nice AR XA. I like AR XA (in my case with Shure M75EJ) and classical vinyl. Enjoyed that combination for many years. Always sounded nice, and made me want to play more music. McLover Approved!!! I miss mine!!!

    Ginette Neveu playing Sibelius Violin Concerto. I like this performance for her strikingly beautiful playing during the opening first movement and other more poignant moments of the concerto. Is this one of those cult albums on vinyl that sells for a lot? Am I going to read about it from Electric Recording Company :) I could see it being one of them if it wasn't pressed in large numbers

    Szeryng has the prolific discography but it includes little real audiophile recordings like Mercury LPS. That’s why I did.

    It has been relatively warm today and is still in the low 50's, though it has rained most of the day. It will be sunny tomorrow and the high will be in the low 50's again. Temperature will then drop 30 degrees by Sunday and ice or snow may follow ...

    Is this a duplicate for you?

    This must be an older EMI LP. I bought a bunch of EMI LP's in the early 80's and their jackets look decidedly different in how the EMI logo is displayed ...

    Spinning this fantastic sounding disc in multi channel. Some better performances out there but this sounds amazing.
