    55 CDs. I'll be in Haydn for a while.

    OK, I lied--I wasn't finished giving myself Christmas presents. But at local secondhand store prices, who can say no?













    God bless us, everyone!

    Thanks. I was especially happy to snag the highly rated Tilson Thomas Mahler 4th, which I'd had my eye on for a while. The Rachmaninov recording may be the least distinguished of the bunch, but I can always upgrade later on should I feel the need.

    After receiving another Amazon gift card for Christmas, I've gone ahead and checked off another item from the Classical Music Wish List Thread:



    Also, to complete the set (as much as possible, anyway):



    OK, that's it, no more Christmas! I promise!

    These are the classical music CD's I picked up from the secondhand store last week, along with fifteen operas. An expensive visit, but at those prices, a worthwhile investment.

    I have just become a fan of his after listening to an '08 concert he did of Berlioz "Symphonie Fantastique". Plus I also became a fan of his wife Kristīne Opolais after her turn as Manon Lescaut in the Met Radio Broadcast of "Manon Lescaut" with Alagna.......

    One of my friends turned my onto this. Reminded me of what would have happened if Schoenberg collaborated with Debussy on "La Mer" Very Interesting

    And since I now have a 6 month old newborn cousin, there can be no further delay in starting his Music Education & Cultural Enlightenment. Why not start with a little Lennie and the NYPO doing Prokofiev, Saint-Saens, with a little Britten thrown in like a good dash of paprika

    I figure I'll have him discussing Schumann, Schubert and Mahler in about a year or two.......
