    On the turntable: Bruckner Symphony No.9. CSO/Barenboim.

    Lots of recorded competition for the Bruckner 9th and this may not be at the top of the heap, but still a very strong performance. (Confession: Barenboim's later Bruckner cycle with the Berlin Philharmonic--on Warner Classics CDs--is perhaps my favorite of all Bruckner cycles I've heard.)

    DG LP / Made in Germany / 1976 (my copy has a "6/78" date on inner sleeve)

    What fantastic presence this 38 year old German conductor has. He hasn't yet been seen much in the studio but it won't be long. This is an excellent recording.
    His live Mahler's 4th on Monday night in Stuttgart, was a sensation.

    On the turntable this evening: Mozart Piano Quartets. Performed by the Amadeus Quartet with Walter Kline, piano.
    This 1982 LP from DG is my favorite recording of these delightful works.

    Spinning in surround. A great surround mix. Highly recommended.

    Quite a few Martinu symphony cycles out there. I have a couple, but not the Capriccio set.

    I was curious how you rank this among the many other performances of the concertos.
    I have to say that he is amazing to watch, however, I saw a performance of his on BP Concert Hall and his performance of a Prokofiev sonata was almost unrecognizable to me. Very exciting to watch but, his stylings seem over the top to the detriment of the structure of some works.
    I will watch any of his performances for his showmanship but I was unsure whether to buy any of his recordings.

    Another pianist I have never heard of. You folks @coopmv @DeepFloyd11 have collections that are a lot deeper than I thought.

    Yes, I got both & posted them here recently. We've been on a trip to Alabama since last Friday & I have found no CD or LP bargains with the exception of two jazz CDs.

    I’ve probably listened to this work at least 50 times now since I’ve received this recording of Tabakova’s music. Some of the most breathtaking music I’ve heard from a younger composer. The slow movement, Longing is especially moving.

    Amazing performance by a 91 year old pianist, straight from memory ...

    Guiomar Novaes is almost forgotten today, but she recorded many albums for Vox back in the '50s and '60s. I didn't start buying classical LPs seriously until 1970, but at that time I encountered many of her Chopin albums in the bins-- mostly on Vox, but also on their budget labels, Turnabout and Yorkshire. She recorded quite a lot of Beethoven, too, but I wouldn't be surprised if she recorded all of Chopin's solo piano works.
