    I don't know this one but you reminded me of when I worked in a second hand record shop, 90s. Once a week I would go to another store to buy in Hi-Fi . I hated it, but there was this girl in the basement who introduced me to Zorn. All on her own downstairs playing odd stuff.

    Very cool. This work is one of many string quartets he wrote. Zorn has been a long obsession with me that started in my early teens with discovering Naked City and The Big Gundown. From here, I went in a multitude of directions. I probably own around 200 Zorn recordings at this juncture.

    Thanks for the input! I will put these aside as well then for listening. Several of the Turnabout albums were by Carl Nielsen.

    I live in an apartment, for about a year I have had no one above or below, maybe Covid, now I have to find after an input of others if they can handle my music. Hope they are cool.

    1st Listen Beethoven Symphony No. 7, Franz Konwitschny & the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, CD 8, Box set (thank you @HiResGeek for the suggestion):
    [​IMG]
    My first thoughts listening to the first movement (Poco sostenuto) are that the recorded sound does not sound bad but it could be a little better. It's not state of the art by any means. These recordings (from June 1959) were remastered in 2017 (not in this box) and I am curious to hear if that offered sonic improvements (over what I am hearing here). I hear tape hiss, so this is not the version of this recording that was run through a no-noise filter (the version that came out on Berlin Classics). I am trying to listen through the recording quality (to identify details of the interpretation). I hear nice interpretation of the rhythms in the first movement.

    I like the change of mood in the 2nd (slow) movement (Allegretto). I hear elements of tragedy in this movement. Brahms wrote a "tragic" overture but I hear a great deal more tragedy in this movement. I like the way that Konwitschny and his Gewandhaus players handle the rhythms.

    The rhythms in the 3rd movement (Presto) stand out.

    I also hear sprightly rhythms (and a sense of excitement) in the opening of the 4th movement (Allegro con brio). My foot's tapping (a good sign).

    Overall, this sounds like quite a traditional approach to the interpretation of this symphony.

    Glad you gave it a listen. I hope you liked it?

    I wonder how that Scribendum box set sounds compared to my set on Berlin Classics; I always thought the sound was more than acceptable given the vintage.

    The interpretation sounds fine. The recorded sound...could be better. I have ordered the 2017 remaster...this one:

    Looking forward to hearing if the recorded sound has been improved.

    This 2-SACD set arrived today (If had been released today, it would be a single disc). Very good, idiosyncratic, playing, and better than usual piano sound from DG!
