    Will give this a listen but never been able to get pas Haebler on Phillips for JC Bach fortepiano concerti. (I have the scores a
    lot of them work as solo pieces especially the slow movements. )

    It's a different soundworld altogether than Haebler's recordings.
    Enjoy both!

    These violin concertos by Frantisek Benda are very good.
    In the latter part of his longer life, a contemporary of Mozart.

    No, not as great as Bach's solo violin sonatas & partitas, but bloody good just the same!

    Having sampled a few sets, I've been delving quite extensively into the Stamitz's recording of the Dvorak string quartets.
    Dvorak was a master tunesmith, if ever there was one. Lovely stuff.

    A few more charity shop vinyl finds:

    Haydn – ‘String Quartets Op. 33 Nos. 1 – 3’



    The Weller Quartet
    Decca SXL 6182 (1965)


    Vivaldi – ‘Concertos: Two Trumpets, Madrigalesco, Two Cellos, Two Flutes, Alla Rustica, Two Violins & Two Cellos



    The Academy of Ancient Music, dir. Christopher Hogwood
    (Decca) L’Oiseau-Lyre DSLO 544 (1978)


    Mozart –‘Piano Sonatas Nos. 16 (KV545), 11(KV111), 18(KV576) and 8(KV310)’



    Gabriel Tacchino, piano
    EMI5N039-10572 (1978)


    Beethoven – ‘Eroica’



    Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra, cond. Pierre Monteux
    Philips 839 601 LY (Stereo)
    (Marked “Sample Record – Not for Sale”)

    This record has the thickest ‘gatefold’ sleeve I have ever encountered!


    Mahler – Symphony No. 1 in D “Titan”



    Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, cond. Leonard Slatkin
    Telarc DG-10066 (1981)

    I’m not a big fan of Mahler by any means, and have to confess I only bought this copy because of the recording label.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    On a random trip to Amsterdam in the early 80s I heard Haitink conduct the Mahler No1 at the Concertgebow.
    It was awesome.

    The Mahler No1 is Mahler for non Mahler fans. Should be fun.

    Another great selection of music and recordimgs, Barry.
    Your local charity shops are doing you well!

    The musical main course last night for me was Malcolm Arnold's 1st symphony.

    My gosh, what a magnificent piece!
    Blaring brass and pounding tympani - glorious! With many a softer interlude, too. And some great tunes.
    Imo it's a great symphony.

    I marginally prefer the Chandos (Hickox) over the Naxos (Penny). Both are good, the Chandos has the fuller sound.

    Was at a concert on Saturday night in Farnham where the Farnham Sinfonia - rather accomplished if fairly recently forned chamber orchestra - played Malcolm Arnold’s two flute concerti and some orchestrated late piano pieces.

    I was kind of dragged there by the wife under false pretences - it was bookended by Haydn and Mozart symphonies, and she neglected to tell me about the 20th century bit in the middle. But actually once there I enjoyed it.
