    She kind of reminds me of Viktoria Mullova, who is generally more associated with classical works than baroque but nonetheless excels in baroque performance ...

    :edthumbs: Dominique Vellard for early music is like Emma Kirkby for baroque soprano singing ...

    Yeah I'm going to pick up listening to the rest of it this evening on speakers, what I heard was excellent.

    Rest of my lunch time listening was Brahms- the first two Sonatas for Piano and Cello (Fournier, Backhaus) and Four Pieces For Piano Op. 119 (Rudolf Serkin). This is by far my favorite performance for Op. 119. The recordings of the Diabellis are also exceptional and in much better sound quality than the one he made on Columbia. For the Diabellis my two favorites are Igor Levit and either one of the Rudolf Serkin recordings, I need to compare the two Serkin recordings at some point. All three of these performances treat the pieces like the dance like pieces they are, with graceful accelerandos and tempi instead of playing them with a heavy hand, too many pianists play it more wrong than right.

    This box by Paul van Nevel is great!

    Paul van Nevel and Peter Phillips are both great, though van Nevel is probably stronger in continental European early music while Phillips excels in early English early music ...

    Two thumbs up for including Berg's Violin Concerto, I will definitely sample this one too! Thanks for the recommendation.

    That has to be a great feeling :D I bring boxes of CDs from my parents house whenever I visit them and am surprised by some of the recordings I'd bought and forgot about. Max Reger's cello/piano music being one of my recently found discs I've had in my heavy rotation.

    When we post what we're listening to or what we like we're not asking you to buy it you know.
    Besides, enough already of the ad nauseam "I don't like Bartok" posts.

    Probably not the thing for those who don't go for 20th Century music, except perhaps the Rozsa & Korngold. The sound of this skilled Quartet is pretty astringent, making even the pieces by R & K sound less romantic.
