    Not sure whatever has happened to the Gaudeamus. I got lucky as I have all 9 volumes of these works of Byrd by the Cardinall's Musick ...

    Disc 5 from the Brilliant Classic's Haydn Sonatas set on Pianoforte. I'll spare you the generic cover with an inappropriate modern grand piano, here's the back:

    [​IMG]

    Joseph Haydn - Piano Sonatas XVI:7, 47, 23, 27 & 52 - Stanley Hoogland, fortepiano

    As much as I like Bart van Oort's ensemble work, I think Hoogland's discs are the highlight of this set.

    ASV, and their Gaudeamus imprint, were ultimately acquired a few years back by Universal. A lot of their releases are available on streaming services, and are listed as 'released by Decca (UMO)'. I'm hopeful that at some point Decca/UMG will go through this catalog, and release some of it as inexpensive CD box sets. :love:

    Inexpensive CD box sets? Not necessarily as I paid almost $50 for the following box before tax and the CD's were remastered from the original Westminster recordings, not exactly a premium record label back in the day ...

    You've asked this question before and it was discussed and answered at the time.

    [edit] Just noticed @sherrill50's answer upthread.

    TonyACT Boxed-in!

    Don't forget box 3 which was Vocal Works. It's the one I have and is also excellent. Around 1/3 of the box contains alternative versions of works from the first two, which suits me as I don't have those.

    I got the Symphony Edition used earlier this year, only to find out that 6 CDs are missing. The seller refunded me, but still... I tried to find the missing discs, but no luck. Sony couldn't help me either.

    The LP-sized packaging is a nuisance - move the set a bit and the discs are all over the place.

    I preferred the approach in the Menuhin box. Large box so the coffee table book inside is a wonder, six smaller boxes inside which sit nicely on the shelf.

    Corrected my post, it was Sony who couldn't help me with the Bernstein Symphony Edition, not Universal, of course :) I don't have the Menuhin box, so I can't comment on that one.

    And below is the latest big box that arrived yesterday ...

    An opera box with some modern sound. Since I have already owned quite a few of her Handel operas on Erato, I am familiar with her.
