    It took me at least a month to receive my Grumiaux box. Looks like the US Customs was particularly tough with German imports ...

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

    I was going to say( prior to seeing your edit) that the box could be in limbo and then magically reappear with a subsequent scan.

    Rough day yesterday from chronic back pain, I listened to Mravinsky's Tchaik 4th, a couple discs from the Ravel Martinon set and Ansermet's Petroushka on London. Feeling better enough to post today so starting off the morning with some Gina Bachauer, a record I had thrifted awhile back but had yet to revisit. Some great playing here

    I'm sorry to hear about your back pain. I had surgery almost 9 years ago. It corrected the problem, but the damage was so severe that I couldn't walk for three weeks afterwards.

    [​IMG]I don't have the foggiest idea as to why a CBS Masterworks recording ended up in this box. I thought CBS Masterworks is now owned by Sony but Erato is part of WarnerMusic ... :confused:

    Even Liszt isn't so sure he can play these transcriptions! Mr. Marin certainly can, though.

    thank you I am glad to hear it helped. I'm hoping this isn't that severe but sciatica on both sides is no fun, I've had a recurring problem since my early 20swhen I was filling vending machines with no regard for what I was doing to my body, it flares up every couple years now. I am going back to the doctor tomorrow

    When it comes to Sciatica, it is equal opportunities. I learned it the hard way as office jobs can lead to sciatica as well when you sit too much ...

    Spotify Premium. Senior moment-when I saw this on Spotify I thought it was by Respighi. :shrug:
    That's okay; I like Boccherini.

    Apparently Barenboim's Berlioz on DG had its own unique art.

    Stopped by the thift store while grabbing some ibuprofen, unfamiliar with the conductor but only have one other performance, the Mehta on London so I figured I'd take home this orphan and a few other strays. Does anyone have a favorite Schubert "The Great" I should check out?

    Personally can't stand his videos or most of his opinions.

    But happy he is out there doing his thing for classical.

    Scary back pain experiences.

    I'm wondering if getting up and down every three minutes or so to flip / change an opera 78 is better or worse for the back than every 78 minutes for a CD? :cool:

    Stay well everyone!
