    FYI Marriner was either the third- or fourth-greatest selling recording artist in classical music history depending on your source. The only conductors knows to have sold more are Toscanini and Karajan and perhaps Ormandy.

    I didn't read the earlier post and was making the point Marriner's repertoire stretched 500 years. I doubt you'll find another like that.

    Well, besides the vast repertoire of many choir conductors, Gardiner is a bit of a parallel to Marriner. With the Baroque as a main focus at first, but then developed the repertoire into Romanticism and mid-20th Century, yet even recorded works back from the Codex Calixtinus, 12th Century.

    Among the elder conductors, Stokowski and Scherchen probably had the biggest repertoire era-wise, but I don't think it went back much further than around 1600, or the later 16th century.

    I am going with Bernstein.

    But one conductor who has not been mentioned is Levine (even with his bad background, he should be considered).

    He has an impressive record with the traditional works and as an opera conductor, but he in not frighten by the more adventurous music. He is an excellent Carter conductor and did a great job with Cage's Atlas eclipticalis.
    It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious. And I am a very ingenious fellow

    I did mention him (post no. 38). What I failed to mention, upon reflection, was Antal Dorati. He's worth a thought also. Sir Colin Davis and Sir Georg Solti sprang to mind as well.

    What about Vladimir Ashkenazy?

    As a musician, his range of interests is fairly wide (remember, he made numerous recordings as a pianist).

    As a conductor, his range of interests is fairly narrow (nowhere near Svetlanov or Rozhdestvensky even on Russian music). The scope of repertoire on the podium is closer to, say, Temirkanov.

    Hi Rick. I appreciate knowing that very much. Good for them. Hope you have been well! —Lark
