Just a sidebar note if you don't mind. This thread is really exposing me to composers and performers I'd never heard of before; and lets me try them out (best I can) on Spotify. The learning curve has been a bit steep.
So, with your assistance posting all this material, I'm going to make another attempt at a record shop in town with a fairly large inventory. The classical section isn't in public view. You have to ask to be let in, there is a single bare lightbulb on the ceiling. I had to use my phone flashlight to view the LP's that are displayed in a large wall unit.
That first visit was without much knowledge at all, and what I tried to focus on was Vivaldi's Four Seasons and anything by Sir Neville Marriner and The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. Found one of the latter. Now, having been following this thread a while, I'm sure there will be titles that jump out at me. Looking forward to it !
Concerto No.1 In D For Violin And Orchestra, Op.6
Havanaise For Violin And Orchestra, Op.83
Introduction And Rondo Capriccioso For Violin And Orchestra, Op.28
Sarah Chang (violin)
Do you need a secret handshake or a special decoder ring to be let in?
Schoenberg - Chamber Symphony
It had been a couple years or so since I visited the shop I mentioned above. As it happens they got tired of keeping 10K classical albums in the back and had a $1 blow out sale last summer, which of course I missed. The owner mentioned he may have more by summer.
I did come away with a couple and have been spinning these this afternoon. The Holst is a Dutch pressing.
I'm not a huge Karajan fan (blasphemy, I know), but Papa Brahms is good in anyone's hands. And Haitink is *top shelf* stuff no matter what, so you're off to a good start! (And the Philips/Holland pressings are generally very good, too.)
Not familiar with Szymanowski, but a client who found out I'm a classical music enthusiast and fellow audiophile brought this for me to listen. Sym #2 did it a little more for me than #3 (though the tenor was superb); worthy of a couple more listens.
