    An old classic. Still a tremendous set.

    Great album which should help widening the appeal of this great composer.

    In passing, Queyras/Hans Graf/Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine's rendition of "Tout un monde lointain..." comes about at least as engaging as the better-known Rostropovich with Serge Baudo conducting the Orchestre de Paris on EMI.

    My stereo system with CD player, tape deck, and turntable, had not been upgraded in over 20 years. So for about $50 I purchased a record player/CD player/tape player/radio/receiver to tied me over until someday when I can afford a new sound system. I'm having fun, though, listening to records I haven't spun in years. Here's a gem from Brazil's finest:

    I picked it up years ago at a used record store for $3, and it still plays beautifully. Colorful string quartets by Hieter Villa-Lobos and Alberto Nepumeceno.

    Great Beethoven Circle, with Otto and London PO with (also) reasonable collectability potential. Despite the age of the recordings (1954 to 58, I'm not sure right now, first press 1961) the set (8XLPs - Sonderauflage) is playing loud and clear. Performances for true Beethoven's purists, without exaggerations and cosmetic ornaments. Echte Deutsche Schule.

    Another LP I purchased cheap, for about $4. I forget where I found it. It may have been a Salvation Army store, a thrift store, or flea market. Symphony #2 by Saburo Moroi (1903-1977); a Japanese composer who, according to liner notes, was influenced by German Late-Romanticism, Bruckner and Mahler; also Sibelius. To me this symphony also sounds a bit like the American academic composers such as Walter Piston and William Schuman. According to Moroi's very brief Wikipedia entry, he turned to serial technique in his later years, like Stravinsky and Copland did when they jumped on Arnold Schoenberg's 12-tone bandwagon.

    I’ve been waiting for this to arrive for weeks, and looking forward to listening this evening. Listened to quite a bit of it on Tidal, and knew it had to become part of my collection.

    CHANDOS, 2 CD Set, 2019.
