    I might have some ear-cleaning to do.
    Ciccolini's Satie is the polar opposite of de Leeuw's, but no less profound for it, I think. You will enjoy what you hear!

    No......those de Leeuw recordings are epic.

    I love Ciccolini's Satie, so clear and humble.

    My latest purchase:



    A new Brahms symphony cycle by Paavo Järvi and Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.

    Got this after watching The Brahms Code, a very enjoyable documentary about their approach to the Brahms symphonies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-K3Gan-NA0

    Thank you, Roger! However, I will be only window shopping now for a while, I can't spend anything on music untill March. Whathever discipline I had went to the dogs in the last couple of months, I overspent on cds, and also on the books.

    It may sound like a silly question, but is this person's name or a company name?

    Never thought purchasing a new set of Shostakovich symphonies,Haitink and Barshai seemed enough for me but I thought this set is a nice addition.
