    The LP jacket has a matted surface, which is quite classy IMO ...

    Same here. It's now already over 20 years of efforts but just impossible to say that I like Bruckner. Well, I don't even much respect his symphonies because he didn't respected the orchestra. ('There are some good moments but awful half-hours...') That simple-minded orckestrations he did, imho. It's just totally different with Mahler. But hey, he was a conductor, after all.

    Now playing the following LP from my Tchaikovsky collection. To be honest, I am no longer familiar with Gary Graffman bell even though I bought this LP some thirty years ago. I do not expect clean sound as it is a Columbia American pressing ...

    (CD Hänssler SCM 093.027.000) - simply superb brass playing by the Radio-Sinfonie Orchester Stuttgart and Kurt Sanderling manages to unfold the unrestrained beauty of Bruckner`s Symphony 7 - this gives me some consolation on a rather sombre day......

    Bruckner was much more than a conductor ... :evil:

    Have this one, an unexpectedly beautiful rendering of the score.

    I have been listening to the "Ein Heldenleben", an older recording, not great sound, but good performance...

    Indeed, no other conductors recorded 3 Beethoven cycles with one label, i.e. DG. Had he lived longer, he might have recorded another Beethoven cycle with Sony, as Akio Morita was visiting Karajan's home on the day the latter unexpectedly suffered a fatal cardiac arrest ...

    Instead of the usual keyboard instruments such as harpsichord or piano to go with the cello, van Asperen actually performed on a chamber organ ...

    Yes. I especially like the Debussy and Shostakovich works.
