Norma, Maria Callas, my all time best! Oh, no Chopin? And no Mahler/ B Walter or even Solti?

This legendary record is my definitive version of the Haydn Cello concerto C.  
What I like to point out is the intoxicating sound of Du Pre's Cello-Davidoff, so rich in harmonics and accurate in timbre , sending chills in the spine every time I listen to this, especially the second movement.

These serenades by Mozart are wonderful light music for the evening. May the K316 in particular be our tribute to  
陳浩才先生 to whom we are deeply indebted for his fervent efforts in bringing us into the bewildering world of classical music!

Wilkie made a lot of great recordings for RCA released by the Reader's Digest sold through mail order; and if memory serves, including the Pictures also with Maestro Leibowitz which doesn't shy too far away from your favourite Fritz Reiner/CSO version, and likewise, also reissued by Classic Records.

What so special is the stunning explosive dynamics especially in the fourth movement of the Prokofiev 2nd piano concerto. The piano and tube just sound so real.

Walton's Sonata for Strings. This was requested by Neville Marriner to rearrange his string quartet in a minor for string orchestra and was helped by Malcolm Arnold in the later part of the rearrangement. Marriner later requested to further modify by shortening the piece by 35 bars and also altered the key and dynamic. A piece most successfully performed by the Amsterdam Sinfonietta.

Having experiences with the RCA and Mercury boxes which are slightly inferior in sonic quality against the original CDs, I cannot but look at these bargain deals with some hesitation. Rumors have it that these CD packages are copies from CDs instead of the original masters.

有時,吾係剩係只碟有用嫁,好似套Living Stereo.....碟套背有寫“Recording Engineer........"and that kind of crap.......  
 
According to your masterclass notes, I took out those recordings by Ken Wilkinson and audition them all once or even more for an appreciation of good recordings.  
 
There are some really very awkward modern recordings out there, if one use that as the ruler to tune the system............ only disaster but nothing.

I have all the originals but still found having an extra copy handy at the office at around $10 a copy a bargain. At least these people are not as greedy as those LP reissues.

And this much more mature work just one year later. No wonder his masterpiece, the Mid Summer Night’s Dream, came into being when Mendelssohn turned fully fledged at the age of 17.

If you are getting tired of the Romeo & Juliet by Prokofiev or Tchaikovsky try this one by Berlioz,the drama symphony. A recording by Maazel/VPO done in 1973.  
Music may be unfamiliar, but playing is beautiful and the sonics is excellent. How can it be otherwise? Just lookat the names of the recording team,Kenneth Wilkinson, Gordon Parry and Jack Law, the best of Decca. This may be the most natural sounding of Decca's large orchestral works, with none of its usual bottom heaviness.

Peter and the Wolf was my high school favorite, Saint Sean made an excellent demonstration of instrumentation. As for interpretation, the Brits always did it with a great sense of humor, unlike those rigid Europeans....

Both are excellent recordings. The one by Barenboim, however, would give you an additional bonus of hearing Du Pre's voice throughout, if you love her like I do.

Let's get back to business with this recording from a Welsh composer, a prolific writer of modern romanticism. His music is by no means universally popular but there is a touch of harmonic freshness which you may find interesting.  
 
Honestly I bought this record purely because I was attracted by the colorful painting on the jacket which is often there to condone a poor recording. Luckily this one is the exception.

Yes, it is a pity that it is a blue angel .  
But the price of original EMI is prohibitive. Have to think thrice about it.

David,  
 
Yes, these are epic recordings and it is where big speaker systems are most advantageous. However it will test one's patience to listen to the whole cycle once, lasting nearly 24 hours. I've the Solti and the other one by Karajan, but have not finished listening them .  
Hope we can meet while you are in HK.
