  1. Orchestral Music
    One of the most colourful, concentrated and expressive collection of related works. Interestingly, combining all the Webern's into one set would have a total duration of only about three minutes longer than the Berg.

    I would like a non-HIP "big band" Beethoven Symphony set to contrast my Gardiner set. I was looking at the Barenboim/Staatskapelle Berlin but it left me cold. The most immediate criteria is that the repeat of 4th movement of the 5th symphony is taken, it is crucial.

    Hello everyone! I'm afraid I haven't been on recently because of a combination of exams, performances, a holiday and a bad internet connection. But I should be back now, hopefully. Until the next set of exams/performances/internet failures. So, what has happened in my absence? Anything exciting?
  4. Solo & Chamber Music
    I just discovered that a Haydn String Quartet box set of 15 CDs by the Schneider Quartet was recently released. Have read a number of RAVE reviews. These quartets were recorded in monaural in the 50's. Many consider them the best recordings of Haydn String Quartets ever done. Am seriously...
  5. Solo & Chamber Music
    The Beaux Arts Trio complete Philips recordings has lobbed in my mailbox, and what an amazing collection. The group was founded in 1955 and ended in 2008, with some personnel changes along the way. Get this 60-CD set and you get virtually the classical repertoire for piano trio, with earlier and...

    For the longest time I've been listening to Immerseel's HIP Beethovne set. But I recently started listening to my old set with the Staatskapelle Dresden with Blomstedt, with fairly restrained performances. My set with Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin arrived today. And I have to say, I...

    I've long been a fan of the Carl Orff & Gunild Keetman "Music For Children" 2-lp set on Angel, which I believe dates back to 1958. So I was excited to see Sony's new reissue of the 6-CD set of Carl Orff & Gunild Keetman's Musica Poetica, which features the Orff Schulwek/Music for Children...
  8. 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...

    I'm thinking of buying some for public transit time. Recommendations? Would a more expensive pair make a difference in quality? In any case, I'm a student so nothing outrageously expensive please.
  10. Opera
    This boxed set has been on my radar as an eventual purchase. I was curious if anyone had it and if so,me hat their impressions of the set were. I see that there are very good editions of Thais, Manon, and Esclarlamonde....and five other opera and other music besides.
  11. Solo & Chamber Music
    CPE Bach, is for the most part, neglected... even if he is one of the "upper" and better off" "neglected" composers. It's TalkClassical so I expect everyone is familiar with him but I talk of the other 99% public. Anywho, I came across a gargantuan set of all his Sonatas for Keyboard [on...
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    Hello all, I have a conventional Beethoven 'set' (actually individual discs from Bohm, Karajan, Walter and Wand), but I would love to acquire a cycle performed on period instruments (and/or a chamber orchestra - not sure where the overlaps are here - sorry, newbie). Specifically, I would love...

    I am thinking about collecting this 1970's DG box set for lots of Beethoven. Should be very awesome. Anyone else have this? What do peeps think of this?

    Does anyone have this set?
  15. Music Theory
    Set theory is simply a listing of all possible 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 note sets. From WIK: Musical set theory provides concepts for categorizing musical objects and describing their relationships. Many of the notions were first elaborated by Howard Hanson (1960) in connection with...

    Individual and box set. :tiphat:
  17. Orchestral Music
    I was reading an article a couple of weeks ago that talked about Franz Berwald and his 4 symphonies. I listened to a couple of clips on YouTube and found them interesting enough that I bought a set of symphonies conducted by Ulf Björlin. This got me thinking, which non-major symphony...

    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...
  19. 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...
  20. Opera
    The great Romanian soprano Virginia Zeani celebrates her 90th birthday in 2015. A devoted fan of the diva based in Ontario, Canada, has lovingly produced a special, limited-edition box set of her complete studio recordings (too few) and selected radio broadcast recordings showcasing her...
