    I’ve recently bought the disk of Beethoven’s works performed by Maxim Rysanov, Kristina Blaumane and Jacob Katsnelson. And can say that it totally worth buying it! I’ve found it at onyxclassics site and can recommend it to anyone who likes good music! I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

    The four symphonies of Christian Sinding (Rustle of Spring's composer). Glorious, glistening, sparkeling and virtuosic stuff - why they're not played, who can guess. NDR Radio Philharmionic, Hannover - Procelijn and Dausgård.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    The most god-awful recording (and, sadly the only one) of Massenet's neglected opera "Cleopatra" with Mounts of Fat Caballe singing the title role, though VERY badly in fact she comes across as the grandmother really. Awful orchestra - hideous in fact. I'm tempted to ask iTunes for a refund do to the awful quality of the recording.

    Hey White, I know both these recordings and love them. There's also a quite nice set by Lenny Bernstein with various orchestras.

    Yeah, David, I've just listened to the first two symphonies and found Kuchar's readings of them quite enjoyable, albeit a little faster than Blomstedt's. I've also enjoyed both Bernstein and Vanska in some of their interpretations of Nielsen as well.
