I have that as well on regular redbook. Sounds great.
I've been slowly but surely picking up the various L'Oiseau-Lyre boxes regardless of what I already have. I'm not sure about this particular disc.
Actually I take that back. I do have the SACD of the London Symphony. However, the SACD was botched. I have the redbook as well.
You must have quite a few Chandos recordings by Hickox. I only have two, one is on Chandos and the other on same unfamiliar label (IMP Classics) that probably had licensed the recording from Chandos. Looks like Hickox only recorded for Chandos ...
First listen to CD 3 from "Haydn - The Piano Sonatas" performed by Walter Olbertz on Berlin.
What a cool cover.
I wonder if it would have been like this after a duel ? Was the woman in question worth taking some foe's life?
Sorry, I just started fantasizing about some romantic, passionate and (for us ) senseless situation. His expression is partially disdain and partially tragic surrender to whatever destiny will bring. Great photo - whoever captured this depiction of an epoch.
I switched over from LP to CD pretty fast starting in the mid 80's and that is why my DG Archive and L'Oiseau-Lyre are mostly on CD ...
I have every SACD on Chandos by Hickox.
You must have enjoyed his conducting if you have all his Chandos SACD's. Just googled him and he passed away a number of years ago at a relatively young age ...
Hahaha!! I got a totally different 'feel' from that cover. I hadn't read your comment before writing mine.
The cover totally transported me to the romantic era and how people of a certain class lived - sometimes consumed by their build up passions- always on the verge of overflowing.
There were so many rules, social norms and taboos; restrictions and standards, barriers.... all meant to be broken - at least once in a while - even if it meant doom.
The risk was worth it.
Art, music and literature of that time contained so much of that build up need for intellectual, sexual and emotional release.
That's why women would faint when listening to Chopin or Liszt.
He did pass away at a young age. I actually have a dilated aorta which is similar to what he died from. They are keeping an eye on mine. It got worse over the past few years. I have to go for a ct scan next week.
I was fascinated with the story of Jack the Ripper. Even after over a century, his true identity has remained unknown. Here in the States, there were the Hillside Stranglers, who were busted by the police ...

Unfortunately I've never been to London (or the UK for that matter)....but it's definitely on our list of 'must visit places'. I lived so many years in Europe - but never went to the UK. I regret that.
So many amazing buildings and structures - but THAT thing I find utterly hideous!
Best of luck with your CT scan.
You have to try that famous (or infamous) blood pudding ...
Unlike my brother-in-law who lives in NYC but has a 50-acre ranch in the mountains of Telluride, CO, I live in CT and it is flat as a pancake ...
Hahaha. No blood pudding or haggis for me. I'll stick to the fish and chips. Or Prime Rib.
On the TT...
I worked with a Brit for many years and he told me the American (probably the Canadian too) beef tasted much better than the English beef ...
It did help a man trapped in a walk in freezer....
Trapped butcher saved by black pudding
It's great cold or grilled packed with Iron.
No Haggis??? Hoots Mon!
It's consumed quite a bit in my house!
I just read that article an hour ago. That butcher was a very lucky man ...
Hahaha!! YUCK. I wouldn't eat that if they'd paid me!!
But then again I am the typical finicky eater. No tripe, liver, brain, kidneys or prairie oysters for me.
I do eat the occasional gusanos de magey.
