    I love Gardiner's recent recordings of Brahms' symphonies on his SDG label, so I decided to get the new recording of the German Requiem - even though I have his previous recording on Phillips.

    I am a huge fan of HIP recordings, and decided to purchase the second album, as I have really been enjoying Mozart as of late, and I had read many good reviews of the treatment his string quartets get from the period group Quatuor Mosaiques.

    Argerich is marvelous in Chopin. She is what she is, probably our greatest living and still performing pianist. Looking forward to her annual Lugano Festival CD box, when it issued shortly.

    Spent about $50 on second-hand CD's at my local bookstore. Currently listening to this:



    Beautiful. It's marvelous how much real . . . well, *music* . . . Bach could wring out of a solo stringed instrument. Of course, it doesn't hurt when that instrument is the cello, and played by Yo-Yo Ma.

    Bach's Cello Suites are among my favorite things in the world. I have this one, which I don't know what they mean by "inspired by Bach". They certainly sound like the real Bach to me.
