    Last night I listened to some Haydn sonatas played by Alfred Brendel from the Complete Philips Recordings box. I love the way he plays Haydn, especially the later sonata.

    Haydn: Piano Sonata No. 33 in C minor, Hob. XVI:20
    Haydn: Piano Sonata No. 59 in E flat major, Hob. XVI:49

    It’d be nice if Sony got around to reissuing this recording. I mean, to my knowledge, this is the only time Craft conducted any of Berg’s music.

    I have two or three LPs of music by this conductor and think them mostly good performances.

    First listen. Alamire is a fine ensemble, and this release appears to continue a string of fine performances.

    Yes, indeed. Two of them I had on vinyl as a youngster back in the early 1970's, thanks to US Columbia licensing them from Erato and releasing them on their budget Odyssey label: the Bach Flute Sonatas and the (juvenile) Mozart Sonatas K 10-15, both with Rampal accompanied by Robert Veyron-Lacroix. I imprinted on both of these, and though I now know better versions, these still have a special place in my musical heart!

    You must be referring to the following LP. I have that as well. Apparently, it was available on Erato but I did not know ...

    That's the one! :love:

    Here's the Bach Flute Sonatas on Odyssey, also licensed from Erato. Pretty sure that in the early 1970's, Erato was harder to find in the United States, thus their willingness to license to Columbia.

    Many of the MHS recordings were also licensed from Erato ...

    Daedalus I haven't heard it all.....

    A rarity on the TT this morning. This is the complete opera. This is an absolutely beautiful piece of music-undeservedly obscure in today’s world. It was championed by Toscanini and Beecham but.....[​IMG]

    I had both of those and his Handel sonatas of the same era. Imprint versions for me as well. As I recall, I had an album for flute and harp and one with 20th century music (including the Poulenc and Prokofiev sonatas, IIRC).
