    The String Trio is certainly one of my favorite Schoenberg chamber works. Never fails to intrigue me.

    Well, this SACD finally arrived. It definitely sounds better than the Qobuz streamed version.

    First listen, inspired by @john greenwood 's mention of Rampal's recording. I'm going to see if I can track that down in my Rampal EMI boxes, and give it a listen as well.

    Josef Suk performing Martinu’s two violin concertos and the viola rhapsody. It’s wonderful to visit the sound world of Martinu.

    The inner sleeve of this compilation LP is dated 8/84 & the back cover shows the cassette catalog number, the same as the LP but with a -4 suffix instead of -1. German pressing.

    The jacket of this 1975 LP is left-handed, open on the left instead of on the right. I think this is the only LP like this that I've ever come across. Recorded 4/9/74 & 12/20/74, Columbia 30th Street Studio, NYC. Producer: Andrew Kazdin. Engineers: Bud Graham & Ray Moore.

    From the following set of Alicia de Laroccha's Complete EMI Recordings, which I found on Qobuz thanks to @HiResGeek, replacing an earlier box I had that just had too much tape hiss to my liking:

    This box mostly contains De Larrocha's Hispavox recordings, which were owned by EMI and now Warner.

    Suites 1-3. I didn't used to care for her playing too much, but now I like her very much.

    Today, a double bill of Rameau CDs this afternoon....

    And a Beethoven double bill of vinyl tonight. The Beethoven 9th is Ansermet with Joan Sutherland et al.

    Can't say I enjoyed the period instrument performance of the triple concerto, though:

    And now, before bed, it's the Franck Symphony from this box:

    Which commanding pianist and which composer? Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see anything.

    I have that as a single layer SACD. At the time, it was pretty much the only Baroque SACD I could find.

    Really enjoying this Romantic take on Bach from Karajan in the Karajan 1970's set.

    Bach: St Matthew Passion, BWV 244
    Herbert von Karajan: Berliner Philharmoniker
    Wiener Singverein, Chor der Deutschen Oper Berlin, Knabenstimmen des Staats- und Domchores Berlin
    Peter Schreier & Horst Laubenthal (tenors)
    Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (baritone)
    Gundula Janowitz (soprano)
    Christa Ludwig (contralto)
    Walter Berry & Anton Diakov (basses)

    It is rather long though, almost 3 and a half hours compared to the sub 3 hour version I have in the Complete Warner/Teldec Bach box.
