| Ron, how do you like Brilliant Corners? I heard its good. |
Lee, please tell me you're just asking about the sound and not the music.
I so can't wait for this to arrive. I was planning on starting a seperate thread for the Fantasy discs once I got them.
I've never heard Zander's 3rd. I really want to get it, but I can't listen to a lot of Mahler at once, I need breathing space, and Thomas' 4th is coming in the mail.
Of the two that I do have, Boulez and Thomas, Thomas' is more solid and slick, while Boulez' follows the quirks of the music more. Or maybe he makes the music follow his own. Don't know how else to describe it.
I'm relatively new to Mahler and having been using Thomas' recordings as sort of a benchmark to get into a piece before hearing other versions (except for the 1st- my first exposure to that was the Bernstein).
As for my DVD-A stuff, I meant that my speakers are in storage. I have both my SACD and DVD-A players, the latter is only being used for DVDs now. I listen to SACDs on headphones. The stereo tracks on DVD-A aren't a big deal for me- especially since the disc I want most, In Absentia, has a low-res stereo track. And at least the music of new SACDs can be portable.
