    Now enjoying this 2CD set. Transfers are by Mark Obert-Thorn and are, as always with him, superb! This is the first I have heard of this pianist. After a few tracks, one thing is clear - she could play! Recommended.

    Speaking of which, is it okay to mention I started a thread in the forums to discuss versions of the Four Seasons? It's made it to four pages to date :cool:

    No idea how to link it :confused:

    Hi Tony,

    This thread is intended to be a catch all for classical music discussion, so there is certainly room in this thread for discussions like you describe. I'd prefer that visitors to this thread not be directed away from it.

    What I sometimes do is paste a link to this thread when I see a classical music thread come up in the main forum. To do that, I just mention this thread, suggest they post their classical music question/topic here and paste this link in it: Classical Corner - Classical Music Corner

    I found this very strange copy of Fiedler's POPS CAVIAR, RCA LSC-2202, today at a thrift store and had to buy it (for $1). I'm posting about it here because some of you folks might understand what I'm even talking about!

    They've made this a stereo copy (from a mono cover slick) by placing a specially-printed sticker over the mono catalog number and RCA logo, upper right. You probably can't tell from the photo, but it's a sticker. The cover graphic slick has been cut too high and cuts off the photo credit and "Printed in U.S.A." that should appear on bottom, but from the materials and the vinyl, it appears to be a U.S. copy.

    The back cover has the graphic layout of the 1959 originals (which was changed with the 60s reissue version), but the label is the "white dog" label, used in the 1960s. LP is an Indianapolis pressing.

    Maybe they were using up leftover graphics laying around the warehouse?

    I wonder why there is so little about serious music on these pages ie classical and jazz? So many threads about various pop genres though. Is it that people who listen to serious music don't frequent forums like this as much? These days I feel a bit lonely a s someone who listens 99% to serious music.

    I will be dipping into this box set( as well as continuing to explore the mega Karajan , etc) in the next several days! I was very happy to be able to secure this archival collection from an excellent conductor who may virtually unknown outside of Russia unless you are a student of historical Soviet/Russian classical music performance.[​IMG]
