    I seem to be listening to a lot of near-contemporary piano concertos today. This is a great disc.

    I never understood or joined the cult of Furtwangler. Another listen.
    I'm not sure that one will make you a convert, but maybe it will help you become an enthusiast.

    Much better! Generally faster tempi. Emotionally moving. Much, much, better sound recording quality.
    Haziz - I wonder what you may think of Furtwangler's recordings, and others of his vintage, if they benfitted from the same state of the art sound as Honeck's recording? I appreciate this is a purely hypothetical question and I am not trying score any points here as I genuinely find it difficult to do comparisons between recordings of different vintages and wonder if this a peculiarity particular to me or a general issue - I tend to try and listen through the old sound and balance my view taking that into account.
    Wouldn't it be great if we had everything in a equal sound quality to compare the greats of yesterday with todays maestros.

    Sorry folks didn't mean to derail the thread.

    Thread duty:

    Finzi, Cello Concerto - Tim Hugh, Northern Sinfonia, Howard Griffiths.

    I've been listening to the Faure Nocturnes from this set, up to the fifth so far. They are poetic and technically impressive. Beautiful recordings.

    Some of my absolute favorite music, both the piano and orchestra pieces and the cello concerto.

    For years I found Mahler 8 to be the work of his that I didn't much like. But it turns out that it is the recordings that I had been using to get into it - Haitink, Boulez, Solti etc. (one of them ought to have been OK) - that were not working for me. Since then I have enjoyed the work immensely by listening to Adam Fischer, Nagano ... and this one.
