    Thank you for mentioning Giulini in Mahler's first symphony. I have never heard this performance before but I have it in the Giulini Chicago EMI box, I've made a note to hear this the next time I want to hear this symphony.

    My favorite Giulini album:

    I went down a street that I had never been down before in Manhattan this afternoon and discovered a new record store. I ended up buying these classical titles (amongst other genres):

    Nice haul, and I wish there were some options down here for retail purchases, but very slim pickings :cry:

    I have three of the four (excepting the Telemann); some decent performances there - I particularly like Bartoli in the Rossini.

    It was serendipity. I was craving for a particular Indian dish (called a Thali) this afternoon, so I googled Indian Restaurants in Manhattan. The record store (Generation Records) unbeknownst to me was right next door to the Indian restaurant (Ananda). So, I was able to (accidently) enjoy my two favorite pastimes, eating out and shopping for records!

    Spinning in the CD player: This arrived in the mail today. Taking a break from my recent thrift store haul. Was interested in this because I REALLY liked a piece by José Evangelista on a disc I recently did get from a thrift store.

    Del Sol String Quartet - Gabriela Lena Frank, Lou Harrison, José Evangelista, Reza Vali, Elena Kats-Chernin – Zia
    Sono Luminus – DSL-92164

    “Prism IV”, Danish SQ. An interesting concept; Bach‘s Prelude and Fugue > Beethoven SQ #15>Mendelssohn SQ #2. Great sounds via ECM.

    Apparently my paternal ancestors passed through Amsterdam on their way to the Dutch colony in what is now New York State. They only passed through New Amsterdam on their way to a settlement up the Hudson River. Their starting point was on the North Sea near Husum, a town now in Germany.

    This is the only version I have. The pairing with Weber makes a good disc. I'm not a big fan of AAM as an orchestra but really enjoy this chamber disc.

    This Gramaphone Review suggests there are lots different approaches to playing the piece.

    Would be interesting to know why they chose (had to?) sail from what was a relatively small port quite far away from Amsterdam, with at least a dozen much bigger ports closer by.

    There’s a wonderful novel by David Mitchell called The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, revolving around the Dutch presence in Nagasaki Harbor. Mitchell is best known for his meta-novel Cloud Atlas, but Thousand Autumns relies on a more traditional narrative style.

    I also only have one version by the Berlin Philharmonic Octet on Philips. On CD it is paired with the Sextet.

    I am pretty sure this recording is included in the following box, which I am perhaps one-third of the way through listening as of early last year. The box has many recordings by her so it is good I have the box since I did not have a single recording by her ...
