    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.

    I know one thing about classical music. Tchaikovsky was a cat. In this day and age, he'd probably be considered funkier than the others.:gig

    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 --
