    I agree - having read through the Szell thread I thought I'd do a little comparison, perhaps an unfair one, as that VPO Klemperer disc is a Desert Island choice for me - an excellent disc.

    Inspired by the interest being shown in Szymanowski lately.
    Szymanowski, Symphony No 3 'The Song of the Night' & Love Songs of Hafiz Op 26 - Ben Johnson (tenor), BBC SO & Chorus, Edward Gardner.

    My first encounter with Szymanowski was with the EMI Rattle recordings, I still enjoy them, but I find Gardner's way with the Symphonies equally rewarding. To my ears there is a diaphanus quality to the interpretations/sound that allows little insights into the pieces without details being over spotlit.
    I haven't heard the Wit or Gergiev recordings.




    ETA I just let the disc run on through the first Symphony

    Handel's Opus 6 concertos seem to flower in a variety of very different recordings - Marriner (with Thurston Dart), Harnoncourt, Iona Brown, Antonini have all recorded excellent sets, all very different from each other. And then there are sets from Pinnock and Manze which have their merits even if they can seem a little "generic HIP". This is another - I played the first two discs (concertos 1 - 8).

    I listening to Boccherini's Stabat Mater - a different recording to the one I listened to a couple of times a week or so ago - but won't do the quartets today.

    This reminds me my girl friend, some years ago. I was looking for a Barber's recording and I told her something about my search. Some days after I had my birthday and she came to me with a present. '' Here is what you were looking for'' she said. I opened it and I saw that she had bought Michael Bouble songs! I told her nothing about her mistake and since then I have this collection sealed on my bookshelf to look at it and wondering about the relationship between Samuel Barber & Michael Bouble...
