  1. Solved Cases (archive)
    Unfortunately the tune card doesn't state any of the tunes it plays which is helpful... I know the first song is Libiamo Ne' Lieti Calici and the last is Auld Lang Syne, but the other six are a total mystery to me. It's a Swiss music box, estimate late 19th Century. So here's a video, if you...
  2. Recorded Music and Publications
    I found this..... http://www.amazon.com/Arturo-Toscanini-The-Complete-Collection/dp/B006VKKAWQ They include concerts that were broadcast on radio. I was wondering if there are any other box sets that include either all radio broadcasts or at least a good selection.
  3. Opera
    Very tempting as it would give me the Don Carlo recording that I'm strongly considering as well as a second Aida, which I know is a great one. Anyone have the Verdi Solti opera box? How do you like it? What are strengths and weaknesses of the set? Sound quality?
  4. Orchestral Music
    We all know there are a plethora box sets out there... ranging from complete cycles of the various composers to sets like Mercury's Living Stereo Series, and everything in between. Some are sumptuously packaged but perhaps fail to deliver in sound or content, while others really deliver the...
  5. Solo & Chamber Music
    I have a hodge podge of various DSCH SQs by various artists. My favorite is one a CD by the Coull Quartet which contains the phenomenal 8th; the 4th; and the interesting 11th. I'd like to consolidate and have one box set with great sound (like the Coull CD) and with vigorous...

    Three great 20th century composers, but you're allowed only one album for each of them. So which three albums do you choose? No box sets -- that's cheating!
  7. Conductors & Conducting
    I just happened on an old edition of Classic Recordings Quarterly which had an interesting article on the Conductor Karl Ristenpart. Many of us first learned Bach's Brandenbergs and Orchestral Suites via his recordings. Apparently his repetoire was very broad and he was a bit of a Mahler...
  8. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I am looking for a great opera box set of Britten. I don't care much if they cover all operas or not, but English libretto is the top priority (I am not a native English speaker, so most of the time I can't understand anything without following the libretto :p ) TC members, do you recommend any...

    Individual and box set. :tiphat:
  10. Off Topic Pub
    Hello Everyone, WARNING LONG POST... I am being forced to take my music collection digital onto my computer and into "the cloud". The reasons why are legion so I will explain at the moment. I am not great with computers and this is the first time I've attempted to do this. Like many a Talk...
  11. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    This would obviously be one who does not have such a set at this time, though I suppose a complete works set that is not complete enough would qualify (such as Maria Callas not having both studio and live together in a complete works package. But anyway, I am going for one who really has no box...

    Okay, the SLC public library allows me to suggest five recordings per month to order for the library. So I am going to start a thread for people here to suggest me to order and I will reply whether our library has it or not. Go wild please. The library has no qualms about ordering 80 disc box...
  13. Opera
    I'm assuming most of you opera fanatics wouldn't think of listening to a work without libretto in hand. But how many of you just put on the CDs and enjoy the music and singing without reading the story? I have to admit that I do the later quite a bit. And with a lot of the budget priced...
  14. Musicians
    I can't wait to check her out. She seems to be awesome! :) Her DG recordings are in a cool box set.
  15. Orchestral Music
    I have all of the original CDs of Levine's RCA recordings of his Mahler, except the 10th. Unfortunately, the sound on the CDs is not very good. As you know, Levine's recordings are now available in a box set, and cheap, too! :D Does anyone know if the sound on the recordings in the box have...
  16. Recorded Music and Publications
    For me, it is easily the 144 discs comprising the complete Artur Rubenstein. I don't think that I have seen a box set for a performer that was as prolific. We are not including box sets for a single composer as we know that probably Bach complete would be the winner...
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    I bought a 3CD box set of Walcha's (I think 1961) harpsichord Well-Tempered Clavier on EMI off Ebay having enjoyed the works on Spotify. It is presented as a re-issue with just the WTC portion of a previous 5CD box set (see attached picture) which included the Goldberg Variations as well...
