RE: Classical music and Opera and Jazz

My word, what a lot of recordings you own. This will be a useful site should Mrs P ever complain about the size of my collection.

RE: Classical music and Opera and Jazz

It's certainly an impressive collection in size, but honestly, what is the point of having, say, 55 versions of Beethoven's 5th symphony? It just makes no sense to have so many versions - no one could possibly have enough time in their entire life to listen to that many recordings more than once, let alone learn/memorise them - in which case, isn't it just a vanity collection?

RE: Classical music and Opera and Jazz

...although he does have a great deal of Vaughan Williams, which is (and this is going to sound patronising, but that wasn't the intention) surely not bad for someone in Italy?  More baffling is the grand total of 4 discs each of Monteverdi and Palestrina, and they hardly in cutting-edge performances. Sergio, these are your greatest composers!

what is beautiful like it ...

RE: Classical music and Opera and Jazz

I have already mentioned the number of Beethoven fifths in the catologue fifty years ago last month. Sergiomic seems to have most of them.

He has some that I did not know existed. Some of you may be pleased to see that he has the Krips' set!

I'm sorry but, impressive as all this is, I gave up after Beethoven. There did not seem to be much by living musicians and where there was they were generally quite old recordings.
