    A big thanks for your 1000 post, my dearest!

    das Unbeschreibliche, hier ist's getan;
    das Ewig-Weibliche zieht uns hinan.

    Mahler, Symphony No 5 - SWR Symphonieorchester, Michael Gielen.

    The first miss in this set imo, first his Adagietto is very good he never lingers - more Walter than Bernstein (a good thing in my book) but the rest of the Symphony just wanders along without any great sense of direction. Good playing decent sound but given so many better alternatives this is one I won't rush back to.

    Here is a quote from Ólafsson in the booklet that accompanies this interesting and delightful collection of 18 short Bach keyboard works:

    "There isn't just one Bach. There's not just the serious Bach, Bach the Christian, or Bach the genius. There's also the playful Bach, the provocative Bach, the amazingly creative Bach, the spectacular Bach, and the Bach who explored the full potential of his keyboard instruments."

    Disc one from the 2009 Lugano set:

    Featuring: Schumann, Fantasiestucke Op 88 - Martha Argerich, Renaud Capucon & Gautier Capucon.
    Mendelssohn, Incidental music to a Midsummer Nights Dream for two pianos - Martha Argerich & Cristina Marton.
    Chopin, Introduction & polonaise Brilliante in C Op 3 - Martha Argerich & Gautier Capucon.
    Mendelssohn, Piano Sextet in D Op 110 - Khatia Buniatishvili and others.

    I find the spontaneity of these Lugano boxes very attractive, even if the playing may not be 100% spot on there is a sense of fun and enjoyment in making music in these live events that transmits itself to my ears.

    Brahms: Piano Concerto No. 1 in D Minor, Op 15
    April 1954
    Arthur Rubinstein-Piano
    Chicago Symphony, Fritz Reiner, Conducting

    From the Liner Notes:

    “The D Minor Concerto is one of the most difficult works in the piano repertoire, yet it was one of the first things Rubinstein wanted to learn after he fell in love with Brahm’s music. His teacher, Heinrich Barth, tried to dissuade him: “You are mad, my boy! That is a formidable work, much too difficult for you!” Rubinstein went to work anyway. “I discovered then that real love knows no obstacles. A week later I played the concerto, to Barth’s amazed satisfaction.”
