    Oh I forgot to mention two 10" albums I got on the Decca label (again both minty):

    Bizet - Symphony in C Major with L'Orchestre da la Suisse Romande (Ernest Ansermet) Recorded in 1960.

    Wagner - Die Meistersinger Von Nurnberg, Prelude to Act 3 with The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra (Hans Knappertsbusch).

    Both are excellent!

    Default re: spinning today Classical

    Hi Marco!

    I just felt that you were the most friendly member on this site. Others have been kind of rude to me and unpolite. I am not british, so there are cultural differences of course, most members missunderstood me and some other administor deleted the images of my system which took nearly a day to upload and he insisted that i use Imageschak to upload again. Well maybe i don't get their sense of humor and slangs and forgive me if i am not too much into computers and feel lost in a sea of links and hyper links and registrations, passwords, to upload your images click here, etc...

    Could i modestly suggest to you one truly outstanding Symphony? Very well recorded too!
    MAHLER Symp num 2 "Resurrection" with vladimir jurowsky conducting The Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal festival hall in 2009. It is captured live and just been released two month ago on LPO's own label, and believe me it is THRILLING and that is an understatement.
    This is the best version right now and it wipes with the floor with the recent performances of the same of Mariss Jansen and The Concertgebauw Orchestra and also Rattle's and Ivan Fisher's.
    The price is...well that is relative, not cheap but it is on two discs and it is worth every penny. i call it THE MIRACLE VERSION, THE SYMPHONY!
    To really enjoy it i think you need a very wide dynamic range, a nearly full range floorstander would do it justice and also in my modest opinion a three way dynamic speaker would be much better than a two way, stats or panels in this instance.

    I hope i did not offend you unintentionaly because of the different use of words and language, different cultures...
    I am nice guy really.

    sincere and warm regards,

    Roger Rahal

    The Keilberth Bruckner 6 is a great recording. Is your copy on the telefunken label or a reissue?

    Just realised that I mis-filed this post. This sub-thread is the more appropriate place.

    Samuel Barber – Adagio for Strings

    - it seemed appropriate.

    I prefer the choral version, but the images are inappropriate on this occasion:

    Followed by

    Györgi Ligeti – Atmosphères


    Philip Glass – Koyannisqatsi
