    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.......

    I recently acquired the above Paganini 24 Caprices and it is very good! While we are on the topic of violin music, here is one I just got for $1 at a library sale (not ex-library, but a nice clean copy):

    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!
