    I've been listening to several Pinnock and Hogwood recordings with their respective groups in the last few days and they were all wonderful, without exception. I slightly prefer Pinnock's English Concert because the band sounds tighter and technically a bit better, though I admit that it's really comparing apples and oranges, given the various recording dates.

    I assume you are playing CD's from this box. What a massive box?

    Yes, I believe it's 142 CDs & 2 DVDs. The only really large box I own.

    At just under $400 on Amazon, it is quite reasonable ... :agree:

    I think you may have mentioned a 78 group in the past as well--at least, somebody has. Thanks for the invite; I wish I had time to say grace over more than the CMC!

    I sat through all 5 Carter Quartets a few years ago--that was an endurance contest for all involved.

    At under $1 per CD, it was a better bargain ... :righton:

    Mine was around half that. I already had like 1/3 of the set, but for that price, I could not say no.

    Listening to the Schumann Symphonies from this set...Kubelik treats this music very well, IMO.

    How's the sound? Not too loud? Any NR?

    I had (& still have) quite a few of the 50s & 60s recordings on CD. I took them to one place to see what I could get but they weren't buying any classical.

    Schnittke's 3rd Symphony is a bewildering away of "quasi quotes," as he calls them, blended into a sometimes chaotic haze of sound. I think I like it...Anyway, there's no question about the demonstration-quality sound, though--wow!

    I think I would be quite happy not having this CD in the box ... :agree:
