    By coincidence I was also listening to Beethoven 7 (along with the 2nd) but mine was from this strikingly good set:



    It seems strange to have an absolute favourite of such much recorded and multi-faceted masterpieces but I think the 7th here is my absolute favourite! It is today anyway.

    A couple of 20th century string quartets this afternoon. Both quartets are concise works coming in around the 14 to 15 minute mark. But a lot can be squeezed in to that period of time by fine craftsmen.

    Weinberg, String Quartet No 13 - Quatuor Danel.

    Bartok, String Quartet No 3 - Keller Quartet.

    Beethoven

    Symphony No.7

    The last Karajan symphony cycle is not one that I will cherish so this 7th now with Isserstedt which offers me more musical satisfaction.

I have the Danish String Quartet (CPO) and Amar Quartett (Naxos) cycles.

    Britten, Cello Suites 2 & 3 - Jean-Guihen Queyras.

    Would it be sacrilegious to say I am coming to the conclusion I enjoy the Britten cello suites just as much as the Bach suites.
