    My favorite Bach cantatas are 51, 80, 140 and 147. To be sure, there are some really nice ones that I cannot quite readily rattle off their BWV numbers. But for a JS Bach diehard, I cannot think of a bad cantata.

    Thanks. That's great. He is a terrific critic IMHO. I laughed when I saw the reference to how many Mahler Seconds does a collector really need. I have around twenty myself. :laugh::laugh:

    Bill, I completely agree. Our local classical FM's just keep playing the warhorse works. If one is just starting out in classical music, his local classical FM may not be a bad starting point.

    His fantasy of having rock & roll production on LPs in the seventies and onward resulted in many surrealistic distortions of orchestral sound on record: Fleetwood Strauss. And, yeah—that whole Nazi Party affiliation thing makes for an easy villain. But hey—he joined the party twice, just in case anyone was in doubt. Good idea to keep your paperwork in order, these days . . .

    I have around 3600 CD's but also close to 4000 LP's and maybe about 150 tapes - open reels and cassettes. These are all classical music. I have another 600 or so CD's and LP's that are non-classical.

    I was collecting LP's through the mid to late 80's before switching over to CD's. I do think I have a number of collectible LP's.

    I think it will be an interesting research in classical music to determine all the one-trick pony composers, i.e. one that composed a warhorse work and did not have a large volume of output. Holst appears to belong in this category.

    I have seen this recording before but never bothered to look for more details about it. It may be worth checking out.

    Phase Eight: Senility—You develop an unhealthy fascination for Benny Andersson's solo projects. You play Wartime Nazi recordings of Bruckner backwards in order to hear the encoded spy messages. You own all of Offenbach's Operas in eight different formats. You have become convinced that the only truly honest reproducer of orchestral tone is the Parsons-Short Auxetophone. You own a rare Bulgarian edition of The Complete David Helfgott. You have a hot poster of the pre-talk show Charlotte Church on the wall of your "Listening Room."

    I only have 25 Beethoven cycles and doubt they will go much beyond that number ... :winkgrin:

    Hey Bax isn't that obscure! I only have 163 classical CDs and two of them are Bax...

    George what happens when you hit 10K posts? Do free DCC's and AF's start raining from the sky :)

    This probably is her last SACD on the PentaTone label. I thought she signed a new contract with London/Decca, part of UniversalMusic last year.
