CDs you haven't listened to in awhile

Postby Catmando » Tue Oct 02, 2007 1:55 pm


Here is a thread to list some CDs in your collection that you've been ignoring or neglecting and haven't listened to them in awhile (either by choice or not).

Here are a few of mine:

Beethoven - Diabelli Variations (not by choice, must put it on soon)

Mahler - Symphonies (I have to be in the right mood to listen to Mahler).

Bach - Brandenburg Concertos (don't know why).

Mendelssohn - String Quartets (every time I pick up my set of these, I seem to end up listening to the Octet because I love it so much. :) )

Unfortunately, I have so many CD's that at any one time about 90% of them are being neglected. However, if I had to pick any to say are deserving of a listen and aren't getting it, it is my Mahler symphonies and by recording of Orff's Carmina Burana by Levine & the Chicago Symphony (I love that particular recording!).

I have a complete Smetna's Bartered Bride on vinyl (in quad, no less) that remains sealed up.

I'm saving it for one of those occasions when nothing less will do.
