    Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible.

    Listening to the Buchbinder and Harnoncourt Brahms second concerto yesterday, left me wanting to hear their take on the first concerto.

    Just finished the first album. Sounded good to me! Spotify managed to suggest another recording when that one finished. The vocal one is fantastic!

    I suppose Cluytens's Ravel recordings have now been superseded, but they were very well thought of in their day and still sound good.

    This is an early Japanese transfer to CD.

    Domenico Scarlatti: Piano Sonatas, Vol. 2

    Federico Colli (piano)

    In this collection of Scarlatti’s keyboard sonatas, Colli disdains the traditional same-key pairings, his own focusing instead on contrast, thus brilliantly illuminating each work’s uniqueness.... — Sunday Times, 9th February 2020 More…

    New thread, new beginning, same great quality.

    Please, allow me, to start my participation to the new era with a recording of superlative quality: Greatest, BSO under Munch, Heifetz and Violinkonzert in D op.61. (RCA, 1xLP, Germany)

    This is a killing combination and certainly belongs among the 5 best recordings of this Meisterwerk. (bargain to affordable or more, depending on LP condition)
