Yes, that is the new packaging.
Is this the old packaging or is it a totally different recording?
Not sure what that is, but it's not what I was referring to. The old packaging:
More early music, now playing this CD, which arrived from MDT last week for a first listen ...
Indeed, this box set I bought a few months ago contains no Scriabin works
That Nielsen box is the bomb.
What does Lazar Berman play on that disc? I never saw that disc before.
There are two versions of Pictures at an Exhibition on this CD. A version by Karajan and the BPO and the Piano version by Lazar Berman ...
Ching Ching goes the cash register!
A wonderful combo at a wonderful price ...
continuing this Bruno Walter-led Mozart set with Symphony No. 38,"Prague".
recorded 12/2/59,American Legion Hall,Hollywood.i believe this hall is still in
use for concerts.
Got my copy yesterday Stuart!
Absolutely spectacular as usual for Ann4. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
A well spent $7.95 shipped Used Like New purchase on my part for sure.
Piano Concerto No. 1 Op. 35
Piano Concerto No. 2 Op. 102
Piano Sonata No. 2 Op. 61
Elizabeth Leonskaja, piano
St. Paul Chamber Orchestra
PC No. 2, written for young son Maxim is tons of fun.
Concerto No. 2 is great ballet music. Used at least twice to my knowledge:
Concerto - choreography by Kenneth McMillan
Concerto DSCH - choreography by Alexei Ratmansky (I saw that one last month)
And Hugh Wolff once played piano for a cabaret review I put together.
I didn't know that. The beautiful second movement (Andante) must make for some very graceful ballet...
Do they try to tell a story, or is it all abstract?
Generally abstract, but much of it is quite funny.
Looks like this has one disc from the fforte and Gemini 2CD reissues and another of different recordings. I have the Gavrilov on orig. WG EMI, btw. Can't say I've really spent a lot of time listening to it, though. Scriabin is a work in progress for me, I bought it because I like Gavrilov. Sad what happened to the guy, he completely fell apart around 1993.
I've owned that box set, along with original Six-Eye issues, mix-seventies LP boxes and this version, a German transfer from 1991. I happen to think the sound of these transfers is quite nice:
One of the few stereo Walter/Columbia SO sets I own. Great old-school 'big-boned' Mozart. I have Mahler 2, too. I wanna hear the Bruckner 9.
Jim, I am glad to hear you enjoyed this CD.
Now playing this CD, which arrived from Presto Classical early last week for a first listen ...
Today I listened to Beethoven's Opus 18, nos 1-4 by the Quartetto Italiano. Lovely music, sound and performances.
Now playing this new CD for a first listen ...
the sound quality of my set is quite good.i am missing only the rehearsal
of Sym 36,& all of 37.(i know,it's mostly by M.Haydn.)i also have the earlier
Columbia mono recordings of 25,28,29,35,39,40 & 41.
by the way,my CBS & Sony cds nowhere even mention that these are
Columbia recordings.always seemed wrong to me,and odd.i read that Sony
obtained world-wide rights to "Columbia" (except in Japan) in 1991,so
why not use it ? (i realize they used it later on-but why not from the time
they had legal rights?)
String Quartets, Op. 18
No. 4 c minor
No. 5 A Major
No. 6 B-flat Major
Budapest String Quartet
(with the ill-fated Jac Gorodetzki in the second chair)
Excellent SQ for 1951 mono.
