    Presto Classical has it for a great price: https://www.prestomusic.com/classica...uentia-cyclica

    I was tempted to wait until it was available as a hi-resolution download since one movement is over 100 minutes and had to be split across two discs, but I understand that Jonathan Powell wrote the extensive liner notes, and downloads don't always include the booklet. It might even be available via streaming on Qobuz since they have most of the other Piano Classics releases, but a work this monumental deserves the best possible sound!

    I just pre-ordered it from Presto.

    Thanks, but not cheap in my eyes. I mean, it is a great price considering the amount of music, but I am not that crazy over Sorabji at this moment. I just heard of him by an Amazon suggestion or something and ordered the 4-hour Opus Clavicembalisticum for only $7.31 shipped for a good used copy, so I will just listen to that for now and if I get crazy over it and need more Sorabji, I'll look for a used copy which might go cheap someday. So far I have only heard clips of Opus Clavicembalisticum. But we will see how it goes.

    Maybe that is why nobody posted it here until now. But you never know until you hear it. Sure, caution is in order if you feel the combination would not work. I don't know enough to say, but am not buying it anyway.

    Which recording of "O.C." did you get, John Ogdon's or Geoffry Douglas Madge's? Both are flawed, but most Sorabji fans prefer Ogdon's.

    Beethoven: Complete Symphony / Overture
    Beethoven: Complete Symphony / Overture

    Hermann Schelchen , Vienna State Opera Orchestra , Royal Philharmonic Orchestra , British Baroque Orchestra

    Release date
    Late March 2020
    Regular price
    ¥ 4,609
    Sale price
    ¥ 3,918
    Reserve

    This monophonic symphony, recorded on the Westminster label between 1951 and 1954, is a great way to mark the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth. Whether it's Hermann Schelchen's approach to the fascinating, modern Beethoven, or the very re-released sound quality, I don't think it's very 1950s. Kurt Liszt, producer of Westminster in Sherchen, pointed out: "Sherchen is never boring and no one can remain indifferent." Sherchen's performance is exciting and proves his personal belief that "music is not to be understood; it is to be heard."

    A complete symphony of monaural recordings of noteworthy sound quality.
    New remastering from original tape to high sound quality.
    Also includes "Wellington's Victory" (stereo), overtures, and the famous 1958 "Hero" & "Rural" (stereo).
    There are many tracks that will be the world's first CD.
    Original jacket specification. Marco Frei's new liner notes, with rare Sherchen photos. BOX of 8 CDs.

    It's a live recording and he has to approximate some passages. It lacks the grandeur and demonic intensity of Ogdon's, but the latter's is a bit slower in places. I prefer Ogdon's.

    Bruno Walter & Vienna Phil Live 1948-1956 (Limited Edition)

    Bruno Walter , Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra

    Release date
    March 18, 2020
    price
    ¥ 7,590
    Reserve

    Bruno Walter (1876-1961) conducted the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra on a concert to commemorate Otto Nikolai on January 21, 1907, and since then on May 29, 1960, celebrating the 100th anniversary of Mahler's birth. He has conducted 189 concerts, including the opening concert of the Vienna Arts Week. Visiting Vienna at a young age and being fascinated by the unusual sound of the Vienna Philharmonic, Walter praised the sound that has remained unchanged for more than half a century as a gift of the Phil's tradition.

    In 1975, after a five-year negotiation with the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF) and Dekka UK in 1975, CBS Sony of Japan performed various performances with Walter and the Vienna Philharmonic in Vienna and Salzburg after World War II The sound recording of 4 LPs was released from the live recording of the party, and it caused a sensation due to the richness of the performance content. This three-disc set is DSD mastering all the sound sources for the first time in 18 years from the 38 cm mono analog master provided by ORF. Refresh the brilliance of documents with historical value.
