Vanska is my favorite Beethoven cycle. Played as written. No conductor drama or self-indulgence.

My grandmother died from Covid last night, listening to Bartok's string quartets seems appropriate today:

Thank you Jeff and Arthur.  We thought she could beat it because she beat pneumonia 2 years ago but covid really weakened her before the end came. The difficult part now is there's not going to be a public funeral and we can't travel to get to her for the burial.  So, in light of that, today is going to be a day of Requiems:

"Carmen"  with Leotyne Price... probably the old RCA version   
From my Amazon Echo while cooking spaghetti with butter, olive oil,  mushrooms, and proscuitto



I'm always amazed at the fact that the little 2 1/2 inch speaker inside the Echo doesn't sound horribly bad... and in the background in the kitchen, it actually sounds pretty good.

Prokofiev - Alexander Nevsky, Lieutenant Kijé Suite, Fischer, Thierry conductor.  Reference Recordings label.  Sound engineers is Sound Mirror in Boston (excellent) on SACD multichannel.  I've listened to it quite often.

Khatia Buniatishvili, Schubert disc.

Disregard the cover photo; the playing is extraordinary.

Prokofiev Symphony #4 on a 1960 6 eye Columbia.  Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Good music, good performance, good pressing.

I received this recording by Biss of the Beethoven 32 piano sonatas. I like it better than the recent Igor Levit traversal. I recommend Biss' recording.
