    I grew up with a recording of Sibelius 2 with Bernstein and the NY Phil. I have imprinted on this recording. I love it but I also know it is an idiosyncratic rendition so it makes it somewhat difficult for me to be objective in evaluating other recordings of this work. Anyhoo, what are your...

    Long story short. My 2011 Release of the celebrated Mahler Tennstedt Cycle arrived today! Probably many of you own the first release of the cycle, the 1998 box. I had read that EMI had made further remasters of the symphonies in the early 2000s. That is the reason why I chose to buy the 2011 box...

    Hi everyone, I've always been terrible at identifying music so I'm sorry if this one is trivial. I heard a kid playing a piano in public and recorded it, I had to run and catch the train before I could ask what he was trying to play and now I want to find the full piece :) I'm attaching the...

    As we know, Horowitz admitted regularly that he always made a mistake playing the Fugue, the 4th Movement in Samuel Barber's Sonata For Solo Piano, Op. 26. What recordings of the Barber Sonata do you like? I have Horowitz's early 40s recording, and I want to branch out. Gekotron
