    Default I'm posting this here because...

    ...it was some 47 years ago that I heard this record for the first time. Thus began my (and many others') interest in and passion for 'Early Music'.

    Beethoven: Violin Concerto (Isabelle Faust, Jiri Belohlavek, Prague Philharmonia)

    Englebert Humperdinck: The King's Children: Overture & Feast (Karl Anton Rickenbacher, Bamberg Symphony Orchestra)

    Otto Nicolai: Merry Wives of Windsor Overture (Christian Thielemann, Vienna Philharmonic)

    Ferdinand Ries: Piano Sonata in A, Op. 114 (Susan Kagan)

    The Beethoven concerto is one of the best I've heard. Faust's tone and technique are marvelous, and the ending of the first movement entrances me. The other three pieces I heard on the radio in the car today, and I liked them all. They are my first exposure to Humperdinck and Nicolai, and I would not mind hearing more from them.

    Hans Rott, Symphony in E major. Gerhard Samuel with the Cincinnati PO. A rather unrestrained symphony from a young composer of great talent who came to a sad end.

    Great set. It has my favourite version of Symphony No. 100 or 'Military'

    I've never really explored Malcolm Arnold's oeuvre but this symphony (No.5) is blowing me away. The second movement has gentle influences from Mahler and Satie and is just so innocently intoxicating.

    I don't listen to this famous symphony too often, being afraid I'll get sick of it.
