...Aaron Goldberg & Guillermo Klein: Bienestan...

Don't ask how I wound up back in 2013 on this thread, but there I was and there was your above selection.

So, are you familiar with more of Aaron G's work?  Do you like it?

Maybe.  I've liked what I've heard, but my interest is/was that he's someone I play tennis with.  Just curious - he seems to have a great reputation.  Thanks.

Adam:  Le Diable a Quartre//Leoni:  The Prayer and the Sword (Bonynge/London Symphony Orchestra/National Philharmonic Orchestra) (these are enjoyable enough -- but their fans had better be careful about getting too snobbish about "classical" music's supposed "superiority" to "pop")

Lutosławski:  Paganini Variations/Paroles Tissées/Les Espaces du Sommeil/Symphony No. 3 (Glemser/Kusiewicz/Kruszewski//Wit/Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra)

John Prine:  John Prine

Brahms: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2 (Weingartner/London Symphony Orchestra/London Philharmonic Orchestra) (These are the Pristine Classics transfers, as distinct from the EMI transfers I played a couple of weeks ago.  The slander against so-called "audiophiles" is that we listen to equipment and sound rather than music.  But, at least for the "audiophiles" who like music, that's bullshit.  The "sound" we listen to is music.  This simply "sounds" infinitely better than the EMI transfers -- so you can hear more of the music, and enjoy it more, cuz it "sounds" better.  I don't understand what could be wrong with that.)

Victoria:  Missa Gaudesmus/Magnificat Octavi Toni a 4 (Antiphone Hodie Maria)/Vidi Aquam/Missa Ave Maris Stella (Noone/Ensemble Plus Ultra)

C.P.E. Bach:  Double Harpsichord Concerto/Flute Concerto/Hamburg Symphonies Nos. 1 & 4//J.C. Bach:  Symphony for Double Orchestra (Lubimov/Martinov/Czasch//Huss/Haydn Sinfonietta Wien) (there are a lot of Bach Sons records on the market these days -- but this is one of the very very best)
