What an incredible pianist Rubinstein was.  If ever there was a noble-soul playing piano, it was him.  What grace and power.

His Brahms second is also a RTDF, also with Krips.  Never found a better performance, and it's never been reissued on a decent sounding CD which is unfathomable.

Branching out, trying to listen to more Martinu, who is a composer I'm not super-familiar with, but several people I respect rave about him.  Today it's this nice performance of the Cello Concerto by Sol Gabetta:

How is this Andolink? DID quality? I had their Beethoven Quartets on Arte Nova from the mid-90s but wasn't as impressed with them as I wanted to be.

I like these ASQ discs a lot.  Possibly not DID material but these are the only versions of the middle period quartets I own and am intimately familiar with so I can't talk about comparisons.

I've got their late quartets set too and those compare favorably to the Quatuor Mosaiques' new set.

I highly recommend the ASQ Foghorn recordings.

In the Op. 18 quartets however, nobody beats Quatuor Mosaiques.

Oh dear, oh dear! Now you have me in something of a lather. I already have the Quatuor Mosaiques‘ Beethoven as well as several of their Haydn. And now there’s the ASQ to consider. I need to pause and reconsider in the morning.

In the meantime ...

When I was a kid playing Bach and Chopin, I thought Horowitz was a god, and the Richter sat at his right hand... and that Rubinstein was an over the hill, over rated has been.  Wow, how the decades have changed my perceptions.  Rubenstein is usually the version I reach for in much of my library.  I still hold Richter in high regard, but Horowitz's impressive technique leaves me cold.

Not to mention his work in chamber music.  His various piano trios and violin or cello sonatas are all incredibly good.  He has a special feeling for Brahms' chamber music.

Mahler — Concertgebouw-Orchester, Amsterdam / Bernard Haitink ‎–Symphony No. 6

A beautiful boxed set in NM condition, I probably got it from Pumpkinman's crackhouse for $1 back in 2010-11.

Thanks again Andolink! You’ve helped make me, my wife (and it seems even our dog, who usualyy lies in front of one of our speakers when we play these recordings) into Feuersinger/Capricornus groupies.    :thumb:
