    I have the Kubelik's DG LP box for the Complete Dvorak Symphonies with 9 LP's but single composer tend to be the rule back in the day ...

    Well after a couple of weeks of work I have my my ITunes collection in order, both Classical and Jazz/pop. I've been enjoying some of the jazz and enjoying it. But this morning I decided that it was time for classical. I never realized that Olli was such a controversial performer before I looked at some of the amazon reviews for this disc. Apparently there is one gentleman who can't resist reviews with little substance. Anyway I enjoyed this disc of Scriabin.

    Hi guys, it’s the first one. Sorry for being so mysterious. I wasn’t at home and couldn’t post a pic.

    P.S. The top one is the first edition, also the one I have. The blue one is I believe the third edition, with cheaper packaging. And the bottom one is from the series of boxes that DG brought out for its 75th Anniversary, called “Die Welt der Symphonie” (World of the Symphony). They also put out a large book with the same title, which I managed to get hold of not too long ago.

    I have the Japanese SACD of that. Can't go wrong with those Bernstein recordings from that series.

    I think someone posted this one recently. Now I have my own (for 50 cents!) & it's a dandy. Recorded 3/70 (Tchaikovsky) & 2/71 (Debussy). Producer: Rainer Brock. Tonmeister: Günter Hermanns.

    Lovely Dvorak from Ancerl, a Czech Jew who was sent to Auschwitz and lost his family there. His style is very Czech in the tradition of Tallich. I have one other of the Gold Edition and wish I had purchased more.

    Awesome! It looks in nice shape, in spite of that little mishap.

    But what's more important is what's inside. Did you enjoy the performance?

    No time for music this evening/ night. My daughter and I filled out and check-listed our applications for Canadian Citizenship. Bureaucratic matters require focus and concentration!
    I can't believe it's finally happening,we are eligible now. So happy and proud to have the chance to call this wonderful country my true new homeland. Canada has been splendid and generous to us, of course in large part thanks to my beloved husband who made this possible by sponsoring me and my daughter. I have felt home since the first night I stepped out the airplane March 21st 2009. The beauty of this province, the warmth of its people - how welcoming everyone has been and given me the chance to work, prosper and become a productive member of a modern, humanistic and progressive society. No one ever discriminated me because I came from Mexico or because I am a middle aged woman.
    I decided to send my application off via courier service Canada Post on Valentine's Day. The Day of Love and Friendship. What better omen can there be? :love:

    On the TT...a very appropriate :winkgrin:

    My favorite First on record. No one handles that amazing chromatic rise (Andante lugubre) just before the Allegro Vivo in the final movement like MTT does on this recording. Excellent recording.

    (CD Deutsche Grammophon "Galleria" German Press 419 056-2) 1986 ..... recorded 1975 .... Rafael Kubelik for sure knew how to make the Symphonie Orchester des Bayrischen Rundfunks delve deeply into Dvorak`s music and partially sounding even like a slavonic folk band .... beneath Sejna + Czech Philharmonic Orchestra (Supraphon) the most moving (in both senses of the expression) recording of this Dvorak euvre .... very nice sounding early Deutsche Grammophon "Galleria" edition ....

    I've been finding it difficult to get a recommended vinyl recording of this symphony but this could fit the bill nicely ...

    Great news! Canada would do well to accept you! (And the Klemperer/Beethoven 9th is the perfect celebratory album!)

    That's a very handsome set. I'm sure you will get many hours of enjoyment from it.
    I couldn't help noticing the small split along one edge of the cloth-bound box. I have many such DG/ Archiv/ Telefunken boxes with the same issue -- some far worse. Do you (or does anyone else) know a good method of repairing these?
