Midwest Record

Just when you think the world’s greatest garage sale is on line only, here comes a cd for the rest of us that still like to find rare things while pawing through the racks. 30 year old recordings that were quite a find then are even more of a find now, especially with the sonic upgrades digital affords. A double cd that also includes bonus material dating back to 1964, the underserved Haydn fan that really wants something “new” and different has a full on bonanza here. Lesser known works that are far from being of lesser quality with performances and interpretations to match.
