Sean, I'm familiar with that disc. Lane's performances are exciting and compare well with the somewhat different Copland collection conducted by Bernstein which I recommended here before. The sound quality is spectacular, including moments for the famous(infamous?)Telarc bass drum.

Available at ridiculously low prices of a few dollars up, there should be no hesitation on anyone's part in joining you in adding it to their collection.

Thanks, John. I'll add that Bernstein CD to my cart. Expecting soon the Debussy selection you recommended.

For what it's worth, there is an SACD version of it for 20 bucks or so. For half that price, the redbook version sounds excellent!

And, for that matter, EVERYTHING sounds better when wearing clown makeup.

JohnK,
I bought this one: Camille Saint-Saëns: Symphony No.3 "Organ"/Phaéton

Getting to know it. What is a Phaeton?

Chris, Phaeton is a figure in Greek mythology. Supposedly his father was the sun god and let him drive the sun chariot one day, but he screwed up and drove so close to the earth that he nearly burned it to a crisp. The other gods weren't amused and did him in to save the earth.

Incidentally, you also should have taken a second shot at the Albeniz Iberia disc which was sold out when you tried to order before. Really fine piano music, and several are available(though not at that special sale price)from sellers on Amazon.

The big organ at 15 minutes into the second movement.....is that his demise?

You may be referring to the symphony rather than Phaeton(with Mark around, watch those "big organ" comments), but in any case, composers tend to leave details to the imagination of the listener.

Any one has tried FIM Ultra HD, 32 Bit Mastering?

I own Producer's Choice I & The TBM Sounds (LIM UHD 048).

They sound awesome even from my DVD player. An affordable way to enjoy HI FI Musics without spending much on hardwares.
