I humbly come to ask where one (myself) could find a comprehensive list of recordings to start building a classical collection. My parents used to listen on sunday when I was a kid but I only recently fell in love with classical as an adult (all it took was some good headphones, a tube amp, and SACD player). I am no connoisseur so I'm not sure what the best recordings are, best orchestras, conducters, labels, etc. I don't even think I'd be qualified to list more than the obvious when it comes to composers.
Rather than spend alot of time and money learning these things the hard way I figured that this being the interenet there must be a good list somewhere that I can steal. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
