    Thank you.
    You're welcome, glad to have been of help!

    I've had the Rangstrom set for a few years now, and I still don't get on with them!

    Your comment about reading that he was a modernest composer is interesting. That's what I thought, and was quite disappointed to find that it's pretty much late romantic. If streaming had been available to me when I made the purchase .......

    I bought the Atterberg set on CPO the same time. Don't get on with them either!

    I have the Atterberg set too and I love it His piano concerto and sinfonia are also amazing.
    But that's just because my favourite is late-romanticism so they are exactly my cup of tea.
    I always have a brief listen on youtube before making any purchase of unknown music. You can find most things on youtube these days
    I thought I'd like Weinberg too. But after some listening on youtube, some of his works like the flute concertos are quite interesting but I find most of them are too modern to me!

    2) Kondrashin - Complete Shostakovich - 16 bit CD Quality download £8.99
    3) All Shostakovich 110th Anniversary - 16 bit CD quality download £8.99

    I saw the Sladkovsky set last year and it looked interesting, but I'd never heard of him! Because the set was about £85, I didn't even bother with it. At this price, I could not resist. On listening, I would say this set goes to the very top of all DSCH symphony cycles. A huge surprise. And the sound quality is possibly the best I have ever experienced in all my years of collecting music.
    Kondrashin needs no words, and the 110th All Shostakovich set includes Maxim's premiere of the 15th, which has never been bettered by anyone.

    Thanks Henry - I have been waiting years to find the Kondrashin Symphony set at a resonable price - lossless download will do nicely.

    Another 23€ out of the wallet for these two opportunities. I don't know how the Memories Edition of the Toscanini 1939 cycle will sound. I hope it can be similar to M&A. It was also time to own a 4 Seasons CD after my challenge last winter.
