    In addition to Sanderling's Dresden Brahms cycle, I am also extremely partial to his (Berlin) Sibelius set:

    Philips 6500 860, issued 1975. Recorded 5/16-19/74. I like this ensemble & it's good to hear them venture into this repertoire.

    Although I love Brendel's Schubert cycles, Kempff is also right up there for me. Very beautifully interpreted and played, lots of emotion and thought. Brendel can be a little too jaunty at times.

    Schubert: Piano Sonata No. 4 in A minor, D 537
    Schubert: Piano Sonata No. 2 in C major, D 279 (fragments)
    Schubert: Piano Sonata No. 1 in E major, D 157 (fragments)

    Wilhelm Kempff (piano)
    1968

    One of my favourite Mahler Das Lied von der Erde is this one from Kurt Sanderling.
    [​IMG]
    When people are talking about Mahler conductors, Kurt Sanderling is not often mentioned but in my opinion he is a real Mahlerian.
    Also have his symphony 4, 9(2x) and 10.

    But also have this CD with Bruckner and Shostokovich which is great.

    Speaking of Kurt Sanderling-for those interested in learning more about his conducting career-Music Web International has a 2 part career over-view which is comprehensive and available to access on the internet with no paywall. It is written by Dieter Barkhoff.

    I just got an email from my friend Lani Spahr. His release of Elgar in America received a Gramophone Editor's choice award and his mastering was singled out in the review. Congrats to him!

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

    This morning I curated a playlist of recordings featuring Franz Konwitschny as conductor to play while doing a hike. I guess he should be added to the list of interesting under the radar conductors- everything I heard was extremely enjoyable. I was listening to orchestral Wagner so far although I have added works by other composers to the list.

    I have that recording in my playlist but didn’t reach it yet. What did you think about it? I am also wondering if that is contained in the DG mono box-if so I have heard it ages ago when I got that box.

    I liked it, i found it a very energetic performance, also i am a lover of the tone and violin playing of David Oistrach.
    It is also part of the 111 Years Of Deutsche Grammophon The Collector's Edition Vol. 1, i believe you also have this boxset, so you probably listened to it then.
