    Beethoven: Symphonies 7 and 8. Jochum/Berlin. This is one of my favourite Beethoven sets in adequate mono from the 50's. Jochum's 7th is one of the best I've ever heard. Highly recommended. (Sorry I couldn't find the album cover).

    Nelsons' Shostakovich symphonies are uniformly excellent. When his cycle is finished, and it's more than halfway there, it'll stand ahead of the others IMO.

    I've been impressed with what I've heard so far - out of idle curiosity which is your current or should I say previously preferred cycle?

    Overall, I'd say Petrenko, though occasionally he gets a bit eccentric. Sometimes that works, sometimes not. Nelsons strikes me as, comparatively, the adult of the pair. The sonics in both cycles are superb, as is the orchestral playing.

    Arnold Schoenberg: Piano Concerto, opus 42; and now Fantasy for Violin and Piano, opus 47. Glenn Gould, Robert Craft, CBC Symphony Orchestra; Israel Baker is the violinist in the Fantasy duo. Dipping my toes back into Schoenberg. I think the piano concerto might be the most traditionally beautiful of all his late 12-tone works. Glenn Gould delivers a hell of a performance, but I think in the end, Mitsuko Uchida's recording with Boulez and the Cleveland Orchestra just beats it. This Fantasy is one of his very last works, and it's interesting, though quite dense. I need to listen again with a score. Even after I've gone deep into all kinds of Modernist, experimental, and atonal music, Schoenberg remains challenging and sometimes mystifying. I love it all.

    Bartok: Violin Concerto & Concerto for Orchestra Henryk Szeryng (violin) with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by Bernard Haitink on Philips
    Bartok.jpg

    The second disc from this 2 CD set (disc 1 has the piano concertos). Great works, somewhat more approachable to the average concert goer than the piano Concertos - in particular the Concerto for Orchestra is almost written to be popular with audiences, and has a knock 'em flat finale.

    Bartok certainly seemed to mellow in his late music. I wonder if he'd lived longer whether he'd have continued in this vein?

    Bruckner: Symphony No. 3 (1877 version). Barenboim/Chicago. It's not a weekend without some Bruckner at this house. This is an excellent lively reading with great brass from the CSO.

    Gustav Mahler: Symphony No.8 in E-flat major, the "Symphony of a Thousand". Leonard Bernstein conducts, the London Symphony Orchestra plays, too many singers, choruses & soloists to name. Enjoying it well enough so far... let's see how far I make it this time.
