    Is the Bruckner Dresden Jochum in Digital? What I've seen so far is that I was right and goodhearted and Warner used the new Japanese remasters. I'm yet to listen to them. Prestoclassical offers them. It seems I will get this box eventually.

    Omg Lilijana your good taste and also your wallet. I would love to have almost everything you got there except the Boulez Parsifal.

    I honestly don't know which remaster is used, and, frankly, these are downloads which I purchased very cheaply! I don't usually buy recorded music as I tend to spend my money on live performances instead. But considering covid19 is a thing, I can't really do that. I kinda splurged on a few things today mainly because I got a bit overexcited with some of the extra money the government has just started giving me since I can't really continue my work as a casual teacher at the moment.

    I've been reading a good number of your posts over the last couple of years btw, and whenever I have purchased recorded music it's often been informed by the things you've written on this site. Especially when I got Boulez's 1976 Ring which has become my favourite, just ahead of Keilberth 55 and Böhm.

    Thank you!

    I hope you got that Boulez Ring free when OD had it's Ring week, maybe in 2018.

    I got for free the Sawallisch Rome Ring in the same Ring sale after lots of praise by Barbebleu. I haven't put myself to listen to it yet.

    That Sibelius Set is amazing. I hope you enjoy it. I wanted to go cheaper with Colin Davis in London RCA although I'm not satisfied with the Symphonies yet (Tone Poems are beautiful). Since my new laptop plays modern recordings amazingly, I was thinking of getting the other three Inkinen Sibelius CDs I don't have.

    To be fair, the Bruckner Cycle from Bayerischen Rundfunks is quite good, but I think you would have faired better getting the Mahler cycle from them instead even the Boulez one, while he's great too. I think the Bavarian Mahler box has way more advantages for Mahler than Bruckner. Although the Blomstedt Bruckner 9 is nothing short of amazing.

    I was lucky! During OD's Ring week I read a few reviews and decided to purchase the Boulez 77 at half price. And then the following day I received an email telling me Boulez 76 was up for free download! So now I have both!

    Segerstam's Sibelius is my favourite Sibelius.

    Also, are you referring to Jochum's earlier Bruckner on DG? I've listened to those on Spotify and I love them too, a bit more than the Dresden cycle in some accounts, but it evens out when I compare them. And do you also mean Kubelik's BRSO Mahler cycle? My favourite four Mahler conductors are Kubelik, Sinopoli, Gielen and Boulez.

    I'm meaning these. It's not a cycle to enjoy for conducting. But for Sound Quality. However, you've been used to attending live performances and I've been always used to listening to lots of recordings. I was really surprised listening to the Jansons Mahler 1 outside that box. I'd like to get it in my collection of HD Mahler.





    By Jochum I mean Dresden.

    Oh I see! I have Harding's Mahler 6 with BRSO which I think is excellent, but I haven't explored that box on Spotify yet to see if I like it enough to own. I think I did listen to Nézet-Séguin's Mahler 1 as well a while back.

    I do love good sound quality, but I haven't really made this as much a priority when spending money on recordings.

    I haven't been a big fan of all the recent BRSO Bruckner recordings, though.

    Been on a Cage kick. There's a few more CDs of his music that I want to get too. There's so much of it, I'm just barely scratching the surface.

    Probably my favorite cellist, barely edging out Rostropovich. (Actually, I love them both...and Starker, and Tortelier, and Maisky, and Ma, and Isserlis, and...)

    I recently got Penderecki's St. Luke Passion performed by the Warsaw National Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra and conducted by Antoni Wit. A very nice recording indeed.

    Nothing at all at present.
    I was going to order a couple of box sets but decided instead to donate the £60 to a local foodbank to help those in need in the current difficult times - I can get the discs at some time in the future.

    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.
