    Sid, I bought that War Of The Worlds recording earlier this year and really enjoyed re-visiting it again!. I thought it had actually aged pretty well and the recording sounded great! - happy listening .

    Faure: complete songs in four volumes, I'm looking forward to hear them and I'm hoping that it will finally make me see if Faure is my man or not.

    Sergei Rachmaninoff, complete piano works. 9CDs, Brilliant Classics, various pianists.

    He was more than just average on the piano. His piano works seem to click quite well to me, maintaninig good sense while venturing well into the 20th century.

    yes, a work colleague of mine has known it for years, and she said it was great as well. i look forward to getting into this at some point. right now my "headspace" is limited, i'm trying to take a breather from music new to me, and just listening to the old classics that i have known and loved for like years or even decades. it's going to take me a while to get through that huge "haul" that i posted earlier (i have never purchased this many cd's in one hit, i only did it because these secondhand discs were a bargain & i did not want to regret not buying them later)...

    Just got this - music from the motion picture "Titanic" - music composed & conducted by James Horner (with "THAT" song by Celine Dion, which I had enough of hearing everywhere back then, but now I'm ready to hear it again (overexposure for sure), but I'm more interested in the orchestral soundtrack)...

    I remember enjoying the Hussard sur Le Toit a lot as a movie but I don't recall any music, it didn't attract my attention at all so I suppose it was rather ordinary soundtrack.

    I have never seen the movie, but I got this disc new & on special (I think it's being deleted from the catalogue). I'm just getting into film music more now. In any case, this disc looks to be good, reading the notes it was the first time the Orchestre National de France recorded a film score. The main theme of this film score is woven around Brahms' famous Intermezzo for solo piano, the composer did this to give the music a c19th feel, which is the time the film was set in. I haven't listened to it yet (there's heaps on my plate now, just got some more second hand stuff - see below) but when I do finally get around to it, I'll review it on "current listening" thread...

    Another second hand "splurge" of as-new discs - except for some of the pieces on the Pinnock disc and the 2 piano trios ( I heard the Mendelssohn 2nd trio live in concert last year, undoubtedly one of the man's finest), I have never heard these works (but these exact works by Lassus, Stainer, Haydn, Dvorak & Liszt have been "on my radar" for a long time, so great to get them at a fraction of the normal price!)...
