In the spirit of upcoming Black Friday audio bargains, a bargain CD to play on them would be Sir Simon's performances of the majestic Prokofiev Symphony No. 5 and the savage Scythian Suite, all in excellent sound.

John, thanks for the recommendation. My CD arrived in the mail yesterday.

On a side note, and I've mentioned this in the past, almost all my driving time is accompanied by the lone classical music station in Southern California, KUSC. Tonight, I had dinner with my folks and my mom commented on how nice the music was when we drove to pick the food up.

Very good, Sean. I'd suspect that you were a bit startled by the opening of the Scythian Suite, especially if the volume was fairly high.

Yeah, KUSC is one of my favorites for listening online, and I typically listen to Jim Svejda's program every weekday evening.

I've learned with some classical discs to have the volume remote handy. The dynamic jumps on some works can be quite startling.


Also, I've been really enjoying discovering opera on KUSC while driving around Sunday mornings.

I got hooked on Chesky recordings from the recomendations here (especially Marta Gomez). a question for all you Canadians out there. Where is the love for Sarah McLachlan? she is a fav of mine
Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday. Merry Christmas.

I like Sarah McLachlan in small doses.

Me too. A truly amazing talent and I have a few CDs but not a regular choice in my playlist. I have to be in the mood.

I bought her live DVD, Mirrorball, but I haven't been able to make myself watch the whole thing. For some reason it turns me off. I have to say I really love her song and the scene it supports in Toy Story 2, though.
