I just ordered a Mahler biography by Fischer! It will be interesting to read it on summer holiday and listen to some symphonies by an unnamed composer. Now that I know the symphonies, have found suitable recordings of each and there is "no struggle" inside my head while listening... It is going to be nice.
I'm reading this one currently. It's pretty good. Hope you enjoy it!

Instead of purchasing the separate Rodzinski, Mitropoulos, and Walter boxed sets that have been coming out recently, I decided to go with this because it contains many of the performances that I wanted from those (Shostakovich's Tenth with Mitropoulos, Walter's Mahler 5, Rodzinski's Rachmaninoff Second, Prokofiev Fifth, and Walkure Act III).

Europadisc has a sale on Dacapo, so I snagged a few:


Ockeghem/Sörensen Requiems, Paul Hillier and Ars Nova Cph.


Holmboe Chamber Symphonies, Lapland Chamber Orchestra/Storgårds


Norgård symphonies, VPO/Oramo and Oslo PO/Storgårds

But maybe I should quit buying CDs and save my money for a nice scooter?!

I just ordered this box set:

I've long admired this conductor and am fortunate, I suspect, to have the complete 43 volume Supraphon "Gold Edition" CD collection featuring Ančerl with the Czech Philharmonic. Some stunning recordings in that collection. So I couldn't pass up this set.

If you are one of those who thinks he recalls my saying I was going to cut down on purchasing CD collections due to my already overwhelming number of discs which are taking up precious space and literally pushing me out of my listening room, well, you're likely mistaken. That was probably somebody else. At least this week.

Tchaikovsky's Pathétique Symphony, in this recently-released recording by Mitropoulous and the NY Philharmonic:

A truly electrifying performance from the 1950s, nicely captured in very good early stereo. I'll be giving Bernstein's 1986 recording a spin later; the contrast between mentor and protégé should be fascinating!

Picked up a 2-CD set of Dvorak at a garage sale this morning.

Part of a Time-Life Music "Great Composers" series from 1990

Disc 1
Carnival Overture - London Symphony Orchestra, Istvan Kertesz 1966
Symphony No. 9 - Clevland Orchestra, Christoph von Dohnanyi 1986
Scherzo capriccioso, London Symphony Orchestra, Istvan Kertesz Op. 66 1963

Disc 2
Cello Concerto in B Minor, Op. 104 - Heinrich Schiff, Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, Sir Colin Davis 1981
Serenade for Strings in E, Op. 22 - English Chamber Orchestra, Raymond Leppard 1976

They were actually separate releases (Disc 1 is labeled 'A', 2 labeled 'B'), each with their own jewel case, but oddly enough, the first is on London, while the second is on Philips.

I'll listen later today.
