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

    Edit: re: Prokofiev War and Peace. The Bolshoi version conducted by Mark Ermler was the shorter version, not the Bolshoi conducted by Melik-Pashayev, as I wrote above. Anyway both are very good versions.

    Thanks for the link, I'll take a look and probably post. As for the box set, there's actually a new expanded edition coming out from Hanssler late this year

    I have a tiny 2 blade swiss army knife with one very thin blade which is perfect for slicing the sleeves open.

    TonyACT Boxed-in!

    Forgot to mention I have both of those versions in an EMI Mahler box (which is why I didn't get that particular Klemperer box).

    I haven't listened to his 'Das Lied' yet (I'm working through the box sequentially) but I really liked the 2nd symphony - both the sound and the performance. The remastering appears to be from 2000.

    I promise I will not bring this up again-but I should have stuck to my original memory-the Melik-Pasheyev and the Ermler are Both the shorter versions. I read someone else’s review and thought my recollection must have been wrong but no I checked against the Lp timings. And of course this shortened version was the version the Soviets had decreed. Well anyway after all of this the bottom line is that you should check one of these versions out( and there are some others out there) if you are not allergic to opera and are unfamiliar with one of the pinnacles of Russian opera( even though it was created during Soviet years).

    His version of 'Das Lied' is one of the best version ever.

    That Harnoncourt is actually a SACD and RCA ended SACD production in the mid 2000's like Universal ...

    Another pickup from last week, Tulip label but a US Pressing. The classical collectors I know locally totally write off all US and Italian pressings but my experience thus far is not that bad, it's a little thinner and less low end than usual but still enjoyable especially for .50. I love this work and I love Karajan and it was in nice condition so seemed worth the plunge

    Can't say no to any Cliburn on a shaded dog for .50. Condition was a little rough but still very listenable. Not sure I like it as much as Wild's performance but it had it's own nuances that will get it more plays in the future.

    Haven't played this in awhile, but I have a soft spot for it and I'm on a Dvorak kick lately. It was among my first few records I bought when I first decided I wanted to get more into listening to and collecting classical records.

    This has always been my favorite recording of the Walton, too.

    I'd imagine that is fairly rare, Orion was a pretty unsuccessful company I have heard some recordings sold less than a couple dozen copies. I think the only thing I personally own is some Grant Still works for violin and piano

    Seems to be. It's sold only once on Discogs, for around $15, it looks like. Someone is asking about $18 for a copy. Nice performances and it's in great condition, aside from a bit of fraying and discoloration around the edges of the jacket. A nice little thrift store surprise. I'll be posting more in the coming days. Picked up 16 discs today.

    I thought the painting looked familiar. It's used on the cover of this Tchaikovsky recording as well:

    Continuing with more Dvorak, was just looking at a red stereo at work today then I saw the $100 price tag! I think my late 60s Tulip set me back $7 or $8 as much as I'd like to hear the difference it's a little rich for my blood. Beautiful record though, maybe I'll get lucky thrifting one day.

    Did we already talk about this and I just blissfully don't remember? :)

    Breaking out one of my most prized records. Original pressing (cover unfortunately has some light water damage in one corner, but this disc is EX to NM). I don't collect many soundtracks but it's among my all time favorite movies and took me a long time to hunt a copy down. Great stuff from Wendy Carlos, Ligeti, Bartok and Penderecki, fit the movie perfectly.

    BTW, I actually prefer the Brahms Requiem over the Mozart Requiem ...



    I actually have this DVD on Unitel, a DG label.
