Re: George Szell - Sony Complete Columbia & Epic Album Collection out this August, 106 discs

For those who have Spotify, the first dozen and a half discs in the Szell box are available in their new remasterings, and from my samplings ( not withstanding Spotify's bit rate) my verdict is they've done a wonderful job. I listened to the 1957 Brahms 1 ( rec. March 1& 2, '57, a week after the fir...

Re: George Szell - Sony Complete Columbia & Epic Album Collection out this August, 106 discs

The date info on the HMV/Japan disc listing for disc 14, Dvorak Slavonic dances is incorrect. This first complete set by Szell, in mono, was recorded over 2 different sessions - Feb. 24 -26 and March 16 - 17, 1956. And for Lance - the Dvorak Piano Concerto was issued on CD in United Archives Szell e...

Re: George Szell - Sony Complete Columbia & Epic Album Collection out this August, 106 discs

I inquired to Sony Classical as to whether Robert Russ (producer of the Serkin, Munch, and Reiner boxes - all fine issues) was producing the Szell box, and they replied..".Hi Todd, The George Szell Box is being produced by our in-house producer Robert Russ with engineers from Swan Studios, NYC, Andr...

Ugh, if you type "Szell" into the Hmv/Japan search box, it will bring up the listing. The translation is hilarious as usual, but the disc by disc content looks pretty accurate for the most part.

Re: George Szell - Sony Complete Columbia & Epic Album Collection out this August, 106 discs

If this link works, here is a disc by disc listing for the Szell box. It looks to be complete, the only thing missing is the Tokyo/1970 live, which wasn't a Columbia/Epic release. http://www.hmv.co.jp/artist_Box-Set-Cla ... em_ジョージ・セル/ザ・コンプリート・アルバム・コレクション(106CD)_8780845

Re: George Szell - Sony Complete Columbia & Epic Album Collection out this August, 106 discs

Hi Lance, though the initial listing omits the Smetana Bartered Bride dances, these were issued originally on Epic BC 1268 alongside Dvorak Carnival overture and Moldau - which are in the listing, so I'm pretty sure that they will be there. The Szell/Tokyo was issued long after Szell passed, so it m...

Re: How much music on discs can we really digest?

Maestrob mirrors my thoughts on record collecting to an uncanny degree! I can only add that he's about 2,500 records ahead of me, which means that I better get down to work!

Re: George Szell - Sony Complete Columbia & Epic Album Collection out this August, 106 discs

Hi all, this is the thread that got me to register, and this my first post. It's in reference to Lance's point about the Szell box not being absolutely complete. Off hand Lance, do you have an idea of what exactly might be missing? You mentioned possibly some of the Epic releases. I'm going to sprin...
