    Fantastic 8th. One of Seji's best recordings out there. The sound is also excellent. (I'm BIG fan of Mahler's 8th. The reason is that he composed it for one woman: His Frau, Alma. I greatly prefer and appreciate all human love creations. With God's love everything is easier...)

    I was lucky that i got these when they first came out.
    I would think a re release might be in order now.

    Its still available on Amazon UK & Presto UK in fact the price on Amazon today is very decent:

    Edit - my post was being written as stathrowers appeared the price in the UK is the same when exchange rate is considered as the US price.

    Thread Duty:

    Bruckner, Symphony No 7 - Berlin PO, Wilhem Furtwangler (Berlin 1949).
    A disc I burned from a Pristine Classical download.

    Beethoven: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 Stefan Vladar with the Wiener Kammer Orchestra on Capriccio

    Beethoven Solo Concertos.jpg

    The first disc from a fine 4 CD set of Beethoven Concertos.

    I'm a big fan of the Piano Concert No. 1 (which was composed after the Piano Concerto No. 2). Such joyous music with a great sense of fun. The second concerto rather pales in comparison, and I believe Beethoven didn't think one of his best.

    I think Enthusiast posted this record a while back. Unbelievably awesome. It is amazing to me how clearly Holliger establishes relations with the Machaut works (which are absolutely beautiful), and then takes them even further, what is hinted in Machaut is exploited by Holliger, a great example of that are the Hoquetus Davids and the Triple Hoquet. Fantastic!
