    I've been enjoying Barenboim's first set of Beethoven piano sonatas on EMI recently.
    Impetuous and fun. His later DG set sounds just a bit staid in comparison.
    Nicely clear and percussive sq suits the interpretations.

    Woo, nice collection there, Barry.
    Top marks (almost) all round) from me (apart from the Schumann, I can't abide Schumann symphonies).

    _________

    Really enjoying this set of Beethoven piano sonatas - Louis Lortie on Chandos.
    Only the earlier sonatas so, far. Lovely combination of impetuosity, poetic touch with a ring of steel when required.

    Thanks Jerry.

    I'm always prepared to take a punt on something I haven't heard before, especially if it is an inexpensive charity shop purchase. If I don't like it, then it hasn't cost me too much.

    Similarly, I like to hear different conductor's/orchestra's intepretation of composers' works.

    Another great selection, Barry!
    Almost makes me wish I was still on the charity shop vinyl hunt! That was great fun - but the stuff only pissed me off once I'd get it home.
    1 in 3 at best was in decent enough condition - too much time wasted on the other two thirds. Grrrr
    Ah, the good old days.

    Really enjoyed the start of this set last night - kind of weirdo Baroque guy, he called one of his compositions Hypochondria. Jan Dismas Zelenka.
    A unique soundworld imo.

    Listening at the moment to the beautifully laidback Concerto Gregoriano for violin & orchestra by Respighi.

    I played my choice for the Best Ever recording of the Schubert 9th symphony yesterday.
    My little chubby arms were waving around like mad, excitedly conducting the virtual orchestra in front of me.
    Superb sq, too.

    Karajan.
    Of all people.
    No, not the adequate DG, but the stereo EMI.
    Wow.

    There's an absolutely amazing sounding fortepiano on this album, it's quite dulcimer-like, beautiful - nice music, too!

    The concertos are mainly by JC Bach.
