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.
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)...
Just in the bag (still buying stuff, though the rate is slowing down in terms of brand new things) -
JOHN WILLIAMS - "Amistad" soundtrack
JEAN-CLAUDE PETIT - "Le Hussard sur le toit" (The horseman on the roof) soundtrack
J. STRAUSS JNR. - "Jabuka" (The Apple Festival) - complete operetta (2 discs)
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.
Digging into some DvořŠk.
Stabat Mater, The Washington Chorus & Orchestra/Robert Shafer
Music for violin and piano: violin sonata op.57, violin sonatina op.100 etc. (different covers to that pictured below)
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!)...
