    Currently listening to this set in the order of composition, which involves dotting around between the discs a bit.

    [​IMG]

    Joseph Haydn - String Quartets Opus 64 - Quatuor Festetics

    Still trying to decide if I should be holding out for bargains on these, or just hoovering the discs up before they disappear completely. Still narked the box set is out of print!

    Listening now

    Dvorak - Symphony No. 9
    Fritz Reiner - Chicago Symphony Orchestra

    One of the LP I mentioned some days ago, newly bought. I waited to have my mono switch completed before listening to this one. Works like a charm and was funny to build.

    Again, it doesn't need presentation.

    For me Mahler is best done by Otto K, Pierre B and Bernard Haitink. I had recordings of Haitink at the Proms (the 7th) and Edinburgh Festival (the 3rd) from the mid 90's that were my go to recordings until the VHS and the TDK D120 cassette wore out. The Prom 7th was with a European Youth orchestra, all under 20 yrs old. He seemed to get great performances from orchestras he had little time to rehearse with.

    I'm looking for a reasonably priced set of his Concertgebouw cycle, as I've foolishly passed on box sets of it at least twice in the past.
