Nice to see another classical fan in these parts BD.:mn:

I was so sad to see Telarc fold a few years ago, one of the best most innovative labels in music period.:bow:

I'll play some Rimksy Korsakov a little later this morning, I love his suites.

Far out.

Just yesterday I downloaded a boatload of classical music.

I'm not a student of this genre, so I don't know all the 'concerto in b flat for strings' etc, etc.

I just like to get some now and then, just for a change of pace.

I'm not listening to it right now, but yesterday I listened to chunks of:













That's not all of it, but you get the idea.

Played my Living Presence "Nutcracker Suite" CD yesterday, conducted by Antal Dorati with the London Symphony Orchestra recorded in 1962 and one of the best versions ever done.:mn:

I'm very impressed BlackDahlia, Osmo Vanska is one of the world's foremost interpreters of Sibelius, being Finish himself, so if you decide to investigate the other 6 Sibelius symphonies (which are all tremendous works) then you won't go wrong if you try to get a hold of his versions with the Lahti Orchestra...here --
