    Mahler music is still more listenable than those by Berg or Bartok though it would take me longer to get used to ...

    Works by Bartok and Berg are worse IMO ...

    Carl von Weber: Oberon (highlights). Schuchter, Thomas, Bamberger Sym. Eurodisc

    Signed by Jess Thomas FWIW. Weber sounds like early Wagner occasionally.

    You do know that they're both 19th Century composers, right? Were you thinking of someone else?

    I got a little mixed up there as I thought about the recording of Farrenc by Eickhorst on CPO ...

    I love that performance. I have the recent Decca vinyl reissue (I'm too lazy right now to take a picture :cool:).

    I quite like the Tatrai recordings. On the strength of listening to the above on Spotify and reading an article praising Hungaroton vinyl, I bought the complete quartets on LP. We'll see.

    I have recently listened to Symphonies 1-4 from this set, i.e. the first two CDs. The playing style is very much informed by Mackerras' HIP experience, even though modern instruments are used here. Strongly recommended!

    This LP issue was not available for long. RCA was excited to discover the stereo tapes of this performance, until then issued only in mono. But even though RCA Victor made the original recording, EMI had paid for the sessions and still owned all the rights. The big companies' vaults (as Steve Hoffman has reminded us in another thread) have plenty of tapes for which they no longer have rights to issue.

    Tatrai's performances are among my favorites for the Bartok String Quartets. This was a random purchase at some music store years ago, I'd never heard them play other composers.

    Have you heard Takacs? This group is not usually to my taste, I have been meaning to revisit this cycle (never gave it more than a single listen) since it was what was included in the Bartok Decca box. I could see their style being more suited to modern music.

    Really like the Takacs Bartok, they were recorded after one of their members had died there is real feeling here, but most of their awards have been in Beethoven and Schubert.
