Well, I just ordered the Zinman. (along with another Brandenburg and vaughn williams complete symphonies) I hope I have the room to put all these cds. Between my shoes and the cds, my husband is going to be pulling his hair out!

Oh, but you can quit any time.

I do it regularly.

This is actually his second cycle; the first cycle was done for EMI with the Philharmonia in the '50s (in mono unfortunately).

Quitting is easy....staying quit...well that's another thing. But I guess there are worse habits to have!

I had no trouble quitting smoking; quitting music is totally impossible.

No one's saying anything about quitting music. Just the compulsive urge to buy, buy, buy in response to these discussions. Many of us have enough music in-house to keep us listening for years.

Not that it makes any difference.

No, it's not the impulse to buy so much as the lure of sound that may shed new light on old friends. How does one explain the way different interpretations make the old new? New performances are like getting new glasses. Sometimes you never realize that things are blurred until suddenly everything becomes crystal clear.

Wow, this is making me rethink my collection. Right now my only Beethoven is a Greatest Hits from RCA and a noname symphony set. I might be able to get a lot of mileage over some actually decent recordings/conduction like that of Harnoncourt.

Well - you can never go wrong spending money on records with music from Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Chopin, Durante, D'Astorga, Pergolesi, Orff, Schubert, Handel, Haydn, Mahler, Scarlatti, Leo, .......I can go on and on.

And your all right. Quiting music is impossible. Like trying to make square circle or the backstreet boys ungay.

I gave in on the Zinman as well.....though I paid .03 premium over the original post!

Your rationalizations are almost as tempting as your cooking.

(P.S. You're right, of course, but you're not helping me economize. )

I had to give in as well. Couldn't resist such a good price. Less than $1 per symphony - a real bargain. I am also interested to hear these revised scores. Hope it's worth it.
