    Enjoying it now over a late breakfast

    Marco.
    Some of those Brilliant classics are high quality reissues while others are more variable. This one looks like a potential gem.

    Got to ask why most of the posts on this thread seem to be about charity shop vinyl? There is a vastly bigger repertoire available out there in digital recordings on disc, downloads or streaming. Yes there are some fantastic recordings available on vinyl if you are lucky enough to get a copy free of defects - I've got a lot of it myself - but what's available really is pretty much limited to select "great performers" of the past in a very narrow core repertoire. There is so much more available in classical music. And vinyl is such a hit-or-miss format for classical - mostly miss as surface noise is such a bummer.

    Currently listening to:

    Christopher Gunning has composed lots of popular film and TV music - but these symphonies are fairly stirring

    coming up: Esa Pekka Salonen & Finnish Radio Symphony in the conductor's own compositions
