    I already own Boulez's Bartók on Deutsche Grammophone, which is excellent. How do his Sony recordings compare?

    Can't find a listing of contents anywhere. Prestomusic.com says,



    If it includes the complete Beethoven symphony cycle it is an even greater deal!
    The listing for this Monteux set on Presto Classical does say that it includes the Beethoven symphonies 1-9 with the LSO and VPO, as well as Symphony 3 with the Concertgebouworkest (?) (although the Presto page is inconsistent in stating elsewhere that it includes Beethoven symphonies nos 3&9, perhaps just some sloppy editing. For some reason it is not listed at all on Decca's own website, but perhaps it will be once it's released on the 18th.

    This 5CD Melodiya set of Shostakovich playing his own music is Norman Lebrecht's "Album of the Week", and I can see why. So far I've listened to the Piano Concertos, the first book of Preludes & Fugues, and a stunning four-hand piano arrangement of the 10th Symphony played by Shostakovich and Mieczysław Weinberg, no less.

    At $4.21 brand new with free shipping, I'm afraid Amazon left me with no choice here.

    That Shostakovich/Weinberg (usually spelled Vainberg in those days) performance of the 10th Symphony is still available in its ancient incarnation on the Russia Revelation label. It is very interesting to hear it played that way. I’ve read that it was Shostakovich’s practice to arrange major orchestral works for piano four-hand so he could preview them to the Composers’ Union, an important step for several reasons, not the least being the political cloud still hovering over his head in 1953. Stalin was dead but maybe not yet totally cold in the ground.

    It's looking to me like almost all of the material on the "new" Melodiya box is taken from those old Russia Revelation discs. Search Amazon CDs for "Shostakovich Plays Shostakovich."

    Attachment 125186

    Attachment 125187

    Attachment 125188

    I've heard the names Stanford and Ippolitov-Ivanov, but I've never heard their music. Is it any good?
    Yes, their music is so pleasant, not groundbreaking, but they do possess charm and surely will give you enjoyment.

    ^This makes the third entry in my collection of Antoni Wit's excellent traversal of Lutoslawski's orchestral music for Naxos. I already have arguably definitive recordings of the third symphony and the excellent vocal rhapsody Les Espaces du Sommeil, both with the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by the composer for Philips. But Wit is so intuitive and often revelatory with this music, that I just have to hear his recordings. The inclusion of the piano/orchestra version of the Paganini Variations is a plus, of course; in fact, it's the reason I bought the CD in the first place. I am also enjoying the Paroles tissées song cycle for tenor and orchestra quite a lot. It's actually much better than I expected; on first listen, it may even be his best song cycle. My obsession with the music of Witold Lutoslawski expands and continues...



    ^Listened to the Wanderer-Fantasy as soon as I opened the CD. Brilliant performance from a pianist I'm quite obsessed with lately.

    Been meaning to get some Mahler piano/voice recordings in my library for some time, and Ms. Norman's "Ich bin der Welt" here is just heart-stopping. Rest in peace.

    I just couldn't resist the price. the Flutissimo is not that good because the pieces that she plays does not challenge her abilities.

    I think you're right, Ken. It's just handy to have them in one set at a good price.
