I think I’ve posted this before, but hey, I listen to it quite a bit. Such a ravishing performance of highlights of some of Rameau’s most famous opéra-ballet and tragédie en musique pieces.

I have rearranged my equipment and moved speakers, so playing one of my favourite albums to make sure I am still happy...

I am much drawn to Gorecki's works.  I have really enjoyed the KQ version - listened many times. Gramophone magazine has, however, drawn my attention to both recordings by the Tippett Quartet and the Royal Quartet.  Both of which the reviewers seem to tilt toward while not being overly critical of the Kronos Quartet's recordings.  May be worth a comparison? :)

Radu Lupu - Beethoven: The Piano Concertos -- listened to this 4xCD set whilst hooning around the Scenic Rim today. It's got Ludwig's 5 piano concertos, plus 3 of the sonatas (the usual: Moonlight, Pathetique, Waldstein), and some other sundry piano pieces. Nuthin' like blasting Emperor at full volume on those winding country rounds, scaring the cows, without a care in the world.

Willhelm Backhaus - Beethoven: Piano Sonatas -- one of today's yoinks. Having a bit of a listen as I rip the 8 CDs in this set. Less romantic than other sets like Arrau, with less use of pedal. Apparently Backhaus recorded the sonatas twice, once in mono and once in stero. These are the stereo recordings from 1958 to 1969, except for a mono Hammerklavier from 1952 (I'm assuming that Backhaus died before recording a stereo version).

Mitsuko Uchida - Mozart: The Piano Sonatas -- one of my other yoinks today is this 5xCD box of Muzza's pee-an-ee sonatas. I already have Maria João Pires' set of Mozart piano sonatas, but I enjoy Mitsuko Uchida's 8xCD box of Schubert piano music, and wanted to get her version. Of course after the Ludwig Van sonatas the Muzza sonatas seem a bit jejune, but I still like 'em.
