    Thomas and DG really knocked this one out of the park. An essential recording, IMHO.
    I have both the CD and the vinyl; the former is fine, but I highly recommend you continue to look for the LP. Comparing the two, the CD is a bit too bright and lean in the bass.

    Ah that's excellent to know, thank you, I will get a copy for sure.

    Am I right in thinking that Thomas didn't record a 'Little Russian'?

    One of the better complete sets in my opinion. Took me a while to find a copy, finally got the first CD reissue for a nice price a few years ago.

    I don’t know if there is a cure other than trying to find an cloth-based adhesive tape with a similar colour and texture and repair that bit by sticking it on top. Still, you will always see the repair. Another thing I thought about is sewing, but I don’t know much about that, and I don’t know if there’s a method that will stay invisible.

    A beautiful set. An exciting time, the Fin de Siècle, with the Wiener Secession and all that happening.

    I recently purchased this. I had never heard any of this music before and I rather like it. Andsnes plays with his usual sensitivity. The recording which was made in Berlin is a bit reverberant, as is common in European piano recordings, but not excessively so. The clarity of the recording is very good without sounding like the microphones were placed right inside the piano.
     
  14. Congratulations! Beethoven's 9th is indeed a very appropriate piece of music to celebrate. Have a nice valentine's day!

  15. I bought the first symphony from this cycle a few days ago. It will no doubt end up in this thread somewhere in the next few days. Too busy with my Mozart set right now.
