    I own the Music & Arts Bruckner 8th from 3/15/49 and didn't know that Furtwangler recorded an 8th the night before. I consider the 3/15 8th one of my "desert island" discs - would any of you recommend the 3/14 version over it? Any insights on sound quality versus the 3/15?

    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 recently got the Warner reissue of Karajan's 1970s-80s Sibelius recordings: I can't rip any of the 4 discs on my Mac, using two different programs (Max and XLD) and a straight Finder file copy. The process simply "hangs" at the...
