    I wonder who make up Les Musiciens. I have a disc by them with the Mozart clarinet quintet and clarinet trio.

    Thank you. And the Technics 1200 KAB+Denon DL-110 cartridge compliments it very well too!

    Here is another outstanding and highly virtuosic performance provided by the Avison Ensemble. Th SQ is mighty good and crystal clear playing through my vintage audio system in the guestroom where the only modern equipment is my Yamaha universal player ...

    I just got back to LP listening a few months ago after a long hiatus. I doubt I will resume buying LP's since I already have some 4000 classical LP's, though my classical CD collection is now much bigger. Space is no doubt the primary consideration ...

    I was added on the FB group a few weeks ago, but so far am just looking & have been too lazy to post any of my LPs.

    I think most people would consider a wall of quarter tones to be dissonant! I, too, find his music thrilling and would love to hear a large orchestral work in concert some day.

    Introducing Missy Mazzoli and her chamber ensemble, Victoire. This piece really soars at the 1:35 mark!

    Daedalus I haven't heard it all.....

    I have a good amount of the old Philips LPs as well. Excellent sound/performances on all of them. Prompted me to get the Philips Sound box set on CD. Some duplicates for me there but most were new to me.

    I still would much prefer seeing the Philips logo than the Decca logo ... :righton:

    Kind of reminds me of working on the Sony lot in Culver City. It WAS MGM, one of the great classic Hollywood lots. The only remaining evidence that it was MGM is this one overlooked manhole cover that has the old MGM logo on it. Such a lack of respect for history in the corporate world. Just because they bought it doesn't make it theirs to crap upon.

    Thanks for the info! I wasn't aware of that newbie. Kuusisto is always a pleasure to listen to.

    This very same advice was also given to me in one of the previous Classical threads when I began asking about opera. It was advice well received. For some reason or another, Sunday mornings/afternoons have become 'Sunday's With The Arts' for me. Today I FINALLY opened my DVD of The Marriage Of Figaro and I must say that I am thoroughly enjoying it so far! I can see the logic of 'seeing' the opera before listening to a recording of it. I will be able to 'see' the action in my mind when I listen to an opera after viewing it. It will definitely increase my enjoyment. Thank you and all here for your wonderful advice! If you will excuse me, I must return to my viewing of Le nozze di Figaro. :)
