    This SACD arrived today. The main work is the Piano Concerto No.1--a big, neo-Romantic work that while perfectly enjoyable, won't replace Rachmaninoff's Concertos! The other works are also enjoyable. The sound is superb--I'm glad MDG is still making SACDs.

    There's a digital only release of this (kind of a sequel disc) that is Mendelssohn only and it's fantastic! Been waiting for a cd release of it but it doesn't seem to be in the works.

    Beethoven No.2 and 23. I like her playing but the piano is a bit bright/pingy. It’s on the K & K Verlagsanstalt label(16/44.1 FLAC).

    Below is the first digital recording I bought in the early 80's. It sounded real good to my years. I did pick up a small handful of digital recordings on LP before I switched over completely to CD once the prices of CD started to drop by the mid 80's ...

    I chose this download too, most of the Brahms solo piano collections I have only feature the 3rd Sonata.

    I ended up going with the Choral Music as I only have two of the pieces on it and it has had good reviews.

    I checked my lists and have two different versions of the Sonatas. I also have piano versions of the Dances, but only a few orchestrations, so purchased this one:

    I guess the newsletter achieved its purpose :)

    She has compiled a complete edition, available on Spotify as "İdil Biret Brahms Edition". I think she has a couple of them available, one on Naxos and other on her own label, IBA, an acronym for İdil Biret Archive, I suppose? I deeply appreciate her IBA album releases as it is the only we can listen to her out-of-print recordings with European orchestras and also various radio recordings. A true national gem, which we (the Turks) sadly -as we do with everything- take for granted...

    I wonder how many times Menuhin recorded that piece? There are three (one on video) in his big Warner Menuhin Century box set, but not that one.

    Was there a female pianist boom in Turkey in the 60s and 70s? I have this fine box:

    So that makes three wonderful female piano players.

    The state used to be much more attentive to young talents, encouraging them to study with prominent musicians across the globe. Biret was one of those prodigies in the 1940s who got to study in Europe through a special law that the Turkish parliament enacted. But times change, and so do state policies. There are many young talents flourishing (even getting picked up by some solid record labels) but government support is only reserved for what it can make money on...

    This kind of reminds me of how Argentina gave two incredible pianists more or less around the same time.
