Lately I feel I haven't connected with music as passionately as I used to. I suppose that could be because I haven't heard alot of new music lately, or listened to it in the right setting. So I decided I should buy some new CDs, and am going to spend around 60 dollars.
Here is a rough list of works that I'd like to really experience for the first time, even if I have half listened to them on youtube before.
Schumann - Piano Concerto (Oddly enough I have never listened to this )
Ravel - Daphins Et Chloe
Beethoven - Symphony no. 5 (I don't know why i'm putting this here, i'm going to buy the kleiber pairing with my favorite symphony, the 7th.)
Shostakovich - Symphony no. 10
Shostakovich - Violin Concerto no. 1
Brahms - Piano Concerto no. 1
Schumann - Piano Quintet
Franck - Piano Quintet
Bruckner - Any Symphony (I'm very curious about this composer. I listened to the Adagio from his 8th symphony and got tears in my eyes towards the end when the development of that chord/ harp section)
Mahler - Symphony no. 2 (As an introduction to this composer, though I have heard the 5th)
Shostakovich - Symphony no. 5
Schubert - Misc. Piano Sonatas
I know the list is really long, so if you consider one composer your speciality like i've noticed in some forum members (Air - schumann, Trout/Polednice - Brahms ) just recommend what you would like to.
Keep in mind that I'd like to have as many new works as possible, so if it's a toss up between a 10/10 performance at 20 dollars and a 9/10 at 8 dollars, I will take the second
