    A new recording, to be released in the EU on November 15. Looks very interesting.

    I'm not in the habit of ranking recordings per se, but I like this new one very much. Since he's playing with an orchestra, he has to rein in his waywardness a bit! It's full of spectacular playing. My favorites are Matsuev/Gergiev, Gavrilov/Lazarov, and Berman/Abaddo, but Trifonov's belongs in the list. If forced to choose just one, I'd go with Matsuev--his powerful playing and stunning virtuosity are second to none.

    Rubinstein playing the Chopin Waltzes ... but I’ve programmed them in the same sequence Dinu Lipatti used to play (starting with 4 and ending with 2).

    This is the second Chopin collection box I bought. It is an excellent value for the money ...

    The Soviet Union in the 1950s and 1960s was not a barrel of laughs and he was persecuted for years. I think he and Galina got out in the 70s.

    The 25 euros price tag of the Pierre Monteux Complete Decca Recordings box on Amazon Germany was probably too good to be true - no price is mentioned now and the box is "temporarily unavailable". Some other Amazon sites still list October 25 as the release date. My order hasn't been cancelled (yet) by Amazon Germany, so here's hoping...

    The same here and thanks for the heads up. I placed my pre-order on Amazon Germany and received the confirmation. So far so good as I also have not received any cancellation. Looks like it was another case of mispricing on Amazon ...

    I have owned the Handel keyboard Suites I for years. But it is better late than never getting Suites II.
