    There have been a few albums of the composer playing his works but this one seems to be the most "completed" one out there.
    5CD set from Melodiya. They certainly know how to do business because $54 USD is not cheap but not too expensive for 5 CDs. They know people are always intrigued by the composer's own interpretation.
    I already have around half of the content from a praga album. Should I grab this one as well? He plays his symphony on the piano!

    ^I'm not the Shostakovich head that some of us are, but that looks brilliant. Worth it, I'm sure.

    It's got the Dorliac Jewish Folk Poetry. I would buy it over anything else Dmitri - I consider these treasures - but I already have most of it on various odd labels. Hopefully the price will come down.

    It's on Spotify btw

    Paul Lewis' Beethoven sonatas, piano concertos, and Diabellis are being rereleased as a box.

    They probably won't, but I hope they put the sonatas in numerical order this time.

    Shosty also recorded the concertos with Cluytens, on EMI.

    Probably not, but it seems like there are a couple of new ones every month. The Breslik is a decent tenor version - it's good to hear the original keys and key relationships - but I think that there have been better tenor versions, like those of Werner Güra, Christoph Pregardien (both), Peter Anders (both). Breslik's voice lacks sufficient heft for some of the more dramatic passages.

    Britta Schwarz' version is dramatic and passionate, but rather idiosyncratically sung. I haven't heard Held, but we certainly don't need another baritone version.

    The one that you *do* need, though, is Mattei's:

    He also has a Wagner Ring cycle that is unique. Here is the cast which includes Fritz Uhl as Loge.

    The release on LP had risqué covers. I'll stick with the CD cover myself, though the others probably are collector's items.
