    Now listening to Jaime Laredo Plays Brahms on Spotify - so far I like the piano accompaniment better than Laredo's playing. No idea who's playing the piano.

    I always seem to find moments of serendipity in this thread.

    I, too, was listening to that Giulini Brahms recording earlier, and right after that, Paillard conducting Debussy:

    Is this available on CD somewhere ?????
     
  22. ...and... tonight too, on the turnable, I'm discovering Paillard's Brandenburgs with the version below. I'd say quite a wonderful recording and performance by the superstars. The room they recorded in has lots of reberb, and I'm not sure if I don't prefer some drier versions I'm more used to (namely Karl Richter's on Archiv), for this kind of music. One of the slow movements (I think the one from #5 in D major) is really slow for my taste... Otherwise, I'd sure recommend it.

    Paillard's own liner notes are very rich in musicological details and technicalities, which the connoisseur (= not me!) will appreciate.

    I have the following twofer. IIRC, Solti did not record that many Tchaikovsky Symphonies ...

    Very few guitarists attempt Haydn transcriptions, mainly because they are incredibly difficult, but nothing seems difficult for Galbraith!

    I haven’t spent much time with the last two PCs from Prokofiev, I needed to rectify this tonight. This is quite a good concerto --- there is some haunting music within it.
