    Mozart, Requiem.

    Vienna Phil. in 1937. I have a feeling I won't listen to this all the way through; it's kind of heavy-handed.

    Alexander Scriabin: Études, from op.2, op.8, op.49, op.56 & op.65. Chitose Okashiro. I got this CD for under $4 shipped, just came today. Ms. Okashiro is a very skillful pianist, very idiomatic in this material, which is not something I can say about many pianists playing Scriabin. You can tell it means a lot to her. I would love to see her in concert.

    Jean Sibelius: Symphony No.5 in E-flat major op.82. Vladimir Ashkenazy, Philharmonia Orchestra. How I love this recording. It's very lyrical, very full-blooded, big-boned, even. But in this, it remains pure Sibelius. A different side of Sibelius than what Osmo Vänskä for instance might be expressing in his recordings, but pure Sibelius nonetheless; contrary to what other commenters have said, I don't hear "Russian" Sibelius, or Sibelius-quasi-Tchaikovsky, or anything of that nature. I want to get the whole cycle on the strength, but I don't really need a third cycle—I already have Berglund/Bournemouth and Sakari/Iceland (all but the 2nd symphony). In the future, perhaps.

    Edit: Continuing onto En Saga, op.9.

    I'm on my second listen, so a bit early to give an opinion.

    I wonder how it will compare with my two long-term favourites - Karajan, BPO DG & Sinopoli, Staatskapelle Dresden DG.


    I thought that the fuss was about his 1964 of No. 5 with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Amsterdam.

    Wasn't it touted as the "Recording of the Century"?
