    Just when you thought I'd stopped them....they're back and this time it's a handful of newer recordings I'm reviewing. As always, these are my personal views. You may or may not agree but feel free to add anything pertinent to these performances in the comments, below. Again, I've tried to...

    I'm looking to get a complete symphonies set on CD. Right now I stream all of my music on Spotify so I'm not sure if there are some higher quality options that I'm missing out on. Recommendations?
  3. Vocal Music
    We are talking about the complete work here, not the overture. Tell me what is your favorite, and what CDs you have. I have these two: This one appears to be unique in that it has 13 tracks whereas most others I can find are 10 tracks. 10 tracks is what is listed on the Wikipedia page also...

    Hi, I'm new to classical music. I'm mostly into metal and rock. Movie scores have been my entry to the world of classical music. I'm talking scores like Ennio Morricone "Exorcist 2" Mark Mancina "Twister" Joe Renzetti "Poltergeist 3" the end is beautiful sad piano music. That twister score...

    I like picking and choosing particular composers and performers as much as the next guy. But, I also appreciate a good bargain, and some of these Complete composer, conductor, and record label box sets look too good to pass up for the price. So far, all I've gotten is Vol 1 of the Mercury...

    I was searching Amazon for some "complete Furtwangler" sets, when I noticed a listing for Furtwangler's complete Beethoven symphony cycle. I have not kept up with comings and goings on the recording industry over the years and I am working off of 40 year old information, here. But it is my...

    Are you a completeist (i.e. someone who needs all of a composer or era's work) ? PS Sorry if I misspelled that. If you are a completeist, this is your thread, to discuss what recordings you have and what you are completeist about.

    Have you bought anything from How does one order from there? I certainly don't have fax. Or is the There are for instance complete Adelina Patti and Tito Schipa The Complete Gramophone and Pathé Recordings (1913-1921). They are a bit expensive, but if they are...
  11. Solo & Chamber Music
    The title of the thread says it all. I have the late quartets by Melos on Harmonia Mundi (from the early 1990s) and find them a bit harsh. The complete Melos seems to have received mixed reviews. I have a library copy of the Verdi Quartet versions and the verdict is still out (though some...

    Anyone here have the Leon Fleisher complete boxset? Does anyone's edition state that it was distributed by Sony Music Entertainment Poland on the bottom of the box?!
  13. Non-Classical Music
    While there are quite a few rock musicians who can play fine solos in a short song who do you think are the best improvisers rock music has produced? For me there are a lot of rock players who like to jam live but when you come down to it most of the solos are a series of flashy tricks strung...

    Just to say hullo. I've been collecting classical music since 1952 and look forward to taking part in the many interesting discussions I have seen on this site. My profile is sill being 'built' but will complete later. Manyene
  16. 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...

    Any new Furtwangler recordings are a rarity and an occasion for celebration rather than the norm. Keeping that in mind and the vast number of box sets of Furtwangler released, I was wondering: To have all known records of Furtwangler, would the following box sets suffice?: If not, then...

    Obviously in Turandot, this blends straight into the next number, but when heard by itself, even when it's taken from a complete recording, such as the Pavarotti / Sutherland, it's got a full ending. Did this get recorded separately and mixed in later?
