    When I ripped these to JRiver, some of the auto-tagging says "remastered", so do not.

    I like Searle's works. Just wish I had more recordings of them.

    @J.A.W. So you are ready to pull the trigger on this big, definitive Bruno Walter big box?

    I'd try the Lyrita CDs but they're in mono. I've heard No.2 by Krips is a good performance.

    Mono in classical recording is fine. At least you are not getting fake stereo ...

    Oh yes, sure, the more so since I don't have that much Walter. I'm just hoping for a lower price, the current 300 euros price tag at JPC Germany is a bit steep, but I probably can't wait too long as other pretty recent big Sony boxes (Szell, Rudolf Serkin, to name but two) are already OOP. I get the feeling that these big boxes are getting more expensive, especially the ones Sony put out.

    I know, I was rather critical of Backhaus' post-war stereo Beethoven cycle at first, but his performances grew on me and the above set with his pre-war Beethoven is a must for everyone who appreciates his playing. A historical document, just like the two Wilhelm Kempff sets APR released a while ago.

    I got that Nonesuch box recently for a dollar or so & enjoyed the LPs I played before I got diverted onto exploring my Naxos CDs.

    Do you have a good number of recordings by La Reverdie? I only have one so far ...

    I have most of them; 10-13 as a rough guess. Love listening to La Reverdie. :)

    A program of Russian favourites performed well with the Philharmonia at its late 50's peak that also shows how well he had molded the Bournemouth forces to the point they could equal that of the London orchestras.

    I may pick up the British Symphonies set on Lyrita at some point. Four discs for around 20 dollars. It includes the Searle / Krips performance and many others.

    Her Majesty's Marines - is that a brass band? How does that sound in combination with a symphony orchestra?

    As kind of intimated in Wugged's response, it is the full band, -woodwind, brass, drums etc - of the Royal Navy who have made a number of recordings over the years comprised of members of the Royal Military School of Music connected to the navy.
