    I find CAP-KO by Peter Eotvos one of the most enjoyable and interesting piano concertos of the last 20 years. The other pieces are also very rewarding.

    Frühbeck de Burgos - Manuel de Falla - El Amor Brujo (CD K2 HD - Lim / Decca / LR)

    Excellent HD CD with the great music of Manuel. De Burgos is EXPERT with this composer and your satisfaction guaranteed. (affordable but not a bargain) Ideal also for great sound hunters.

    I think I'd get it just for the cover. Then I'd hang it up in my room with a small spotlight to scare myself silly at 2 in the morning.

    Berg, Violin Concerto

    I have both Boulez Webern cycles and the Rattle and Karajan 2nd Viennese School recordings, but so far, this one is different enough that I might add it to my burgeoning CD stack. But that cover photo, sheesh! Of course, I've had back spasms like that, so I know how he feels.

    Much of this is almost irresistible - the Cello Concerto Grosso, in particular.

    Elliott Carter, Piano Sonata (1945, rev. 1982), Paul Jacobs. I'm just diving in to this 4-CD box of Nonesuch recordings. This is where all Carter aficionados come from.

    From a customer review:
    The first disc opens with an exciting performance by Paul Jacobs of Carter's early Piano Sonata (1945). In general, the first disc is composed of the music Carter wrote while he was still largely under the influence of Nadia Boulanger, and writing in a comfortable, Americana-esque idiom. But even by this time, he was starting to feel constrained by an allegience to public opinion, and such feelings were audibly leaking into his music, which was taking a more overall episodic feel than originally. It is a cause for celebration to have Jacob's performance back in print, though it faces stern competition from Ursula Oppens on Cedille, whose lightness of tough is well suited to the more dance-like sections of the piece.

    I want this box, mostly for that great Paul Jacobs recording, but it’s a little pricey. I might spring for the Charles Rosen “Modern Piano Music” Sony white box instead, which I believe includes a couple of Carter works
