    That set should go a long way toward curing the drizzlies in ol' Berko, I would think...

    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.

    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.
