Tchaikovsky- Francesca de Rimini/Bizet- Sym no.1 in C with Munch conducting the Royal Philharmonic (Chesky).  I love this record for de Rimini.  Sumbitch has me swooning everytime.  Anybody out there?

All this talk of du Pre has me listening to my various recordings of the Elgar Cello Concerto.  Currently this is the one I've got streaming:


Girl looks like Lindsey Lohan, huh.

Bartok- Les Quatuors as played by Quator Vegh (Astree).

Next up - Schumann Violin Concerto by one of the Capucon brothers - outstanding recorded sound quality and a not-bad-at-all performance:

Rachel Podger, Sonatas and Partitas, Bach, Channel Islands. Fabulous. Two volumes.





(PS. What's with the "luv" in the thread title?  :scratch: It's kindof off-putting.)

Just picked this up - very nice sound quality and very good performances.  I'm not sure it will displace Perahia in these same works as my fave, but it's a nice, alternate take:

Robert Ealey and his Five Careless Lovers- Live at The Bluebird Nite Club (in fabulous Fort Worth).  Whoops!  Wrong thread . .

Vaughan Williams Sym no.3/The Lark Ascending-  Boult, New Philharmonia (Angel).

I'm old enough to remember when the Vaughan-Williams 9th was first issued on an Everest Lp. The owner/producer at Everest, Bert Whyte, was also editor (I think) of a great magazine of the time, Audio.

My favorite V-W symphony is his 6th. Love that first movement in particular. Performances by the late Vernon Handley on EMI's Classics for Pleasure of all the V-W symphonies are excellent.

Nice sounding album. Baroque brass quartet, in a beautiful acoustic.

Keep feeling like this set "ought" to displace my set of the Alban Berg Quartets as my favorites, so I keep listening to it.  It's gaining ground, but not at the top yet.  Of course, I mean for the String Quartets.  When it comes to the Piano Quintet, then the Emersons with Fleisher ARE tops:

Shostakovich - Preludes and Fugues

I'd held off getting a set of these, and last week got the new version by Jenny Lin. Wonderfully strange music, with echos of Bach, of course. Highly recommended.

The Widor Mass, Op. 36 with Daniel Roth SACD JAV Recordings label. This is recorded at the Church of St-Sulpice in Paris with one the greatest organs in Europe, a 19th Century Cavailler-Coll and a 100-person choir. Some of the scenes in the Da Vinci Code were shot at this church. When visiting in Paris, I recommend goign to the night and midnight concerts at Notre Dame de Paris.

Robert Schumann Lieder with Marjana Lipovsek (mezzo soprano) and Graham Johnson on Sony Classical

I also second the Connoisseur Society recording of Manitas de Plata Flamenco Guitar. That live recording was done between 8pm and 4am in a small church. I have the 3 LP box set and also the rare Japan CD re-issue.

Boy what a tremendously satisfying surprise....I just pulled it at random from all my BIS CD's and I love this...power, melody, everything that a classic should have...

Ketil Saevewrud- Double Concerto for Flute, Guitar, and Strings (BIS lp-129).  One of my go to recordings for solace and recorded sound.  Beautiful original music perfectly recorded as it is.  One of the few times you can see how it was recorded and where from the picture on the back of the cover.  It's perfectly realized in my room.  With my warmest recommendation.

Finally a string quartet performance that seriously challenges the Alban Berg set:
