I thought it might be nice if we had--as do our sister forums of MIMF and TC--a section devoted to what our members have recently purchased in the way of classical cds.
I'll start, then:

Just received from Amazon today:

Aaron Copland--Appalachian Spring, Rodeo, Billy the Kid and Fanfare for the Common Man, featuring Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic.
Jean Sibelius--Complete Symphonies, performed by the Vienna Philharmonic under the baton of Lorin Maazel.

@ Elektra, As a big Shostakovich fan who is still looking to buy a complete cycle of his symphonies, I am very glad for you on your Jansons purchase. Could you please let us know your opinion of his interpretations once you have had time to listen to this set? BTW, Congratulations, he has struck me as a fine conductor with some of the other composers I've heard him do, such as Sibelius.

@ Festat, How many cds comprise that Mozart set?

Festat

Is someone looking for a Shostakovich symphonies cycle? Vladimir Ashkenazy, 12 CD set comes with other orchestral works, such as Festive Overture. It is a budget priced set from Decca. A strong set.

I don't know if I could stand the she can middle my bow or tinkle my ivories jokes for too long. In all seriousness, I wasn't a massive fan of her Beethoven concerto but the Britten concerto is so good that it has made me re-evaluate the work. For a concerto it sounds very dramatic and dare I say operatic.

I made two recent purchases:
340

and

341

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.

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.

Strange experience. Listening now to the harpsichord concertos, which I thought I didn't know. So far, everything sounds delightfully familiar, like an old friend. Either this is all extremely well-known music, or I grew up hearing some parents' audio tape I've since forgotten about. I suspect a bit of both.

I watched "Woman in Gold" the other night (with Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds) - which tells the story of Maria Altman, whose family owned a number of Gustav Klimt paintings including "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer", which were seized by the Nazis, and what she had to go through to regain possession of the paintings from Austria.

I had followed her endeavors as they showed up in the news, and have seen Klimt's portrait in the Neue Galerie in New York (I was so fascinated by the painting and its workmanship that I got too close and a security guard had to drag me away) . I didn't realize that Maria Altman's lawyer, E. Randol Schoenberg, is the grandson of composer Arnold Schoenberg. There is a wonderful scene in the movie where he attends a performance of Verklärte Nacht in Vienna, which I found very moving. So, this morning's listening was downloaded from iTunes:


8156


I recommend the movie, by the way - it also is harrowing in its showing the disruption of normal peoples' lives when the Nazis came to power. Maria Altman and her husband escaped Austria (most of her family did not) and moved to California. The movie had so-so reviews, based on the screenplay, but I found it powerful.

My music store likewise. I took 5 CD sets in the other day that I paid $5 for and got $15. I have about a dozen more sets at $1 each I plan on taking next time I go.

My music store is not that convenient to home, so I don't get there often. When I do, I am inclined to buy something. I just isn't a complete trip to the music store unless you discover some interesting CD and purchase it.

This one just recently won the Grammy for Best Classical Recording. AWESOME!!!!
8872
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

8873

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

8874

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

Nothing better than a bargain when you're cheap (or poor).

Partly makes up for the times I paid too much, like when I paid $40 for Puritani with Sills (got $20 back because of one track being defective, and replaced that track with a 85 cent download), but then see same set listed on Ebay for $10!

I know N.3 in F and N. 4 in D very well because they are next up for Rowan to learn in Book 6 of the Suzuki repertoire. Neither of us can stand the way the "official" Suzuki violinist plays them (like a 19C vibrato-crazed elephant) so we listen to Andrew Manze instead.

That is a great shop you go to.

It's primarily a used book store, and their CD offerings are somewhat hit or miss, depending on the recent acquisitions they've made (if any). But they know me well enough by now that, when they've added some items, they'll bring them down from upstairs storage for me to look at before anyone else (or, in a couple of cases, when it's a large haul, let me go upstairs to sift through them). And the prices are always great.

Sadly, they're a dying breed, the only brick-and-mortar classical CD store left in town (and they only survive because of their online business). I just hope they manage to keep their doors open for years to come.

http://img1.wantitall.co.za/prodimages/Golub-Kaplan-Carr-Trio-Smetana-Trio-in-G-Minor-Tchaikovsky-Trio-in-A-Minor__51WhPxUAQ7L.jpg

Not only did I get this at a discounted price, no shipping charge, but I got my much-needed new CD shelf for free in the bargain. All because of a gift card from Amazon when I signed up for their credit card (which I'll never use--who needs to pay interest?)

Thank you, Amazon! (Oh oh . . . they can't hear me, can they?)

I'm still in mourning for my local Little Shop--the last storefront in town with a decent selection of classical CDs (at great used prices). They've been closed for months, and despite the continuing promise of the sign on the front door, it's looking more and more like they'll never reopen. :(

Still, it was good while it lasted. I bolstered my collection significantly buying their wares, as my posts here and in other threads have documented. Now I'm limited to online orders, at higher prices and a slower pace.

Oh well--the work goes on. Just ordered from Amazon.

Nice haul. That Toscanini Beethoven Symphony Set is a great cycle. I have it among my many cycles and it is among my top three cycles (the other two being Monteaux and Zinman). The sound quality on that Toscanini set is pretty decent being it was recorded around 1950 vs his other much older cycle that many swear by. I'll stick with the 1950ish set!

Searching through old CDs is fun in itself! There was a great shop in London, sadly closed now, which had used CDs in the basement. It was almost like a secret club. People would talk in hushed whispers and there would be an occasional sharp intake of breath, meaning someone had found a gem!

Povero Buoso
March 8th, 2018, 04:56 AM
After having engaged in typical University student activities I decided on a whim to buy a selection by Strauss of Polkas Marches and Waltzes
11347

After I had regained full use of my senses I ascertained that despite my impairment at the time of purchase on ITunes this was a wonderful purchase as it allowed me the discovery of old favourites in a revamped form (all the Fledermaus material reworked into waltzes polkas and quadrilles) as well as brand new discoveries that I have listened to on repeat since purchase (Primarily the Feurfest Polka by Josef Strauss and the Annen Polka by Johann Strauss 2). An excellent purchase and a huge deposit of new material for me which I am happily mining away!

Favorite Soprano Arias--Luba Orgonasova (of my favorite La Sonnambula)
Daugherty's Metropolis Symphony, Zinman. The booklet says the Metropolis Symphony is bizarro, and from what little I sampled, it is. But I like it!

Also, there is something beautiful about a singly disk with Beethoven's 5th and 6th together on it. If I could only have one disk of Beethoven symphonies, this probably would be it (would be a stuggle between this and a Ninth though).

Here is a 99 cent download of Rachmaninov three symphonies and other pieces (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B8M11J5/) by Moscow State Symphony Orchestra. The symphonies are given a decent review here (http://www.musicweb-international.com/classrev/2011/Jan11/rachmaninov_sys_alc1030-2.htm).
