    Enjoyable accounts of the Triple Concerto by L von Beethoven and Brahms's Double in a disc I had since the early 90's that got misfiled a year back.

    For decades, this has been one of my very favorite LP's. As far as I know, it has never made it to CD (maybe in Japan?). I transferred it to cassette and also to homemade CD-R years ago. Narciso Yepes is of course well known and well recorded. Whatever happened to Ms. Monden? Discogs shows only this and 2 or 3 other recordings.

    She is so good, her 90s Bartok was the first I heard, don't think she has put a foot wrong since.

    Got a new washing machine so had to move a rack to get it through and found this, on top with loads of slip cases.
    It is wonderful. By the way it's Janet not Jessye in The Song of the Earth.

    I remember seeing this LP when it first came out (way before the internet!), and I had no idea who she was and there not any easy method of finding out. (I still can't find much about her.) At the time, I didn't care for his solo playing, but I saw this in a record store yesterday and figured for $2.98 it was worth a gamble! I appreciate his playing more these days.

    I’m not a huge opera fan, but I do rather like Strauss’ Elektra, Salome, and the, at times, Wagnerian Die Frau ohne Schatten.

    Daphne is late some thirty years after Electra, think more Four Last Songs that superb writing for the female voice. Some say it's not his greatest.
    For me it holds all those Strauss thing I love.

    I’m not a huge fan of Strauss’ music, but Four Last Songs may very well be the greatest piece he has written.

    She is generally not my go-to violinist when it comes to baroque works. I have her recordings of Beethoven and Schumann ...

    My favourite recording of those Bartók works. I like it more than the Steinbacher recording on Pentatone which is so revered.

    In addition to fantastic playing, the SACD audio is superb, too.

    I don't know much about her early music recordings, more her Romantic and modern stuff Jolilvet ,Berg and Egk, but her Bach Sonatas and Petitas is about as good as it gets.
    Her Mozart Violin Concertos are very special.
