But, alas, you're correct. It is best served with cappacino, not wine!

The Satie is excellent, if not a bit overlong. Taking it all in in one sitting is a bit much.
The Albinoni is pretty good. It was the first one I listened to last night, and I enjoyed it. I have heard better recordings of the Adagio in G minor, (The Rollerball soundtrack has an excellent one) but this one isn't bad, and the other pieces are quite enjoyable.

Mravinsky is also very good for PIT

That's my first Karajan CD. I'm not sure if I saw Mravinsky. I heard the whole 4th symphony...the final movement was amazing, even though I only had a portable CD-player with head phones - can't wait to try it out with bigger speakers at full volume! PIT's loud music and Karajan make a great combo!
Btw, has anyone heard Schubert's 8th and 9th with Bernstein and the NYPO?
