    I can't wait to listen to it! I think I have heard bits and pieces of it on radio before, but now I'm just going to sit, relax and enjoy.

    I just got back from buying Sibelius' Kullervo (Sir Colin Davis/LSO/LSC) and Finlandia, Karelia Suite, and Lemminkäinen Suite (Sakari/Iceland SO).

    Chambernut, the Mendelssohn Piano Trios are delicious!

    I just purchased with more money I don't have Krystian Zimerman's Debussy: Preludes. Like what I've heard so far (which is Book I). Music may be as bad as a crack addiction.

    Oh, good on you! I do hope you enjoy them-- Book I is definitely stronger than Book II, though there are some good pieces in there as well (the performance is all wonderful, I mean the compositions are not as strong as the first book). Zimmerman really nails The Engulfed Cathedral!

    Yes.

    I am trying to decide on which recording of Moussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition to order. The one I am leaning toward is Abbado/Berlin PO. Good/bad...??

    I guess I'm feeling kinda Brittesh tonight LOL...

    I downloaded Naxos' recording of Britten's War Requiem and all three of his cello suites as performed by Peter Wispelwey and also Britten's Simple Symphony (also Naxos) for good measure.

    Not familiar with his cello suites at all, but I've enjoyed what I've heard so far (just the first suite).

    Got to listen to it today. It was generally faster than the ones I'm used to. There were instances in the first two movements where the notes were taken a tad faster than usual. For example, in the first movement, when the slow introduction gradually transforms into the main theme. (3:55-3:58) But the speed only added to the dance-like music of the last two movements. The last movement especially went like a rocket! It was definitely allegro con brio. Great recording overall.

    Got these in today: two sets of CDs from Naxos!

    Messiaen's Catalogue d'oiseaux (with Hakon Austbo on piano) - a 3 CD set. I'm really starting to appreciate Messiaen a lot more.

    and

    Sibelius' complete Symphonies (with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra) This 5 CD set also includes Kullervo, which I've only heard once, so I'll get an opportunity to listen a bit more closely now.

    Woo hoo! I know what I'm going to be listening to the next several days!

    My last CD was John Williams - Star Wars Episode VI soundtrack
    It's 2 and a half hours of the best movie music ever! Reet good!

    I just received "Vivaldi Violin Concertos for Harpsichord" Transcribed by Bach and played by Oliver Baumont ... They are great.

    I should pick up those Mendelssohn Piano Trios, I have been enjoying some of his String Quartets recently.
