I had a look at the website which interests me muchly, but I cannot see any way to buy flac downloads.

I hate iTunes with a passion after downloading an album and trying to change it to flac..

I don’t use Qobuz or Spotify and don’t want to pay for a good recording and then ruin it in mp3.

I’ll probably check it out occasionally to see if the situation changes. Thanks for the recommendation though.

Jorma Hynninen is quite magnificent. Spine tingling.

Wow, what a surprise.
Just released.

Leopold Stokowski conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in Shostakovich 10th symphony.
I had no idea he'd conducted this let alone recorded it.

Quite decent stereo.
Listening now. Excited!

 Antheil: California Overture and other pieces.

Exhuberant at least. Good mid 20th century avant-garde.
