He's great, yes. Since it's a DG release, I guess the budget offer would've been available worldwide. Oh, DG has so many great CDs on offer for beer money. And no, they're not old mono recordings or something: fairly recent releases, widely applauded.
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

Oh, and this evening I'll be listening to the SACD-version of this gem for the first time:

Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo for me. I loved Aranjuez, and the music transports me back.
And Sketches of Spain isn't bad either......

John Dowland might be a good "entry" into classical for some here. Singer-songwriter stuff with strings, sounds a bit like Nick Drake, plenty of PK Dick references, what's not to like?

Ground Zero for modernism.

favorite thing I've just learned about recently:

Mazzoli's Vespers is an ominous twist on an ancient musical and religious tradition — the evening Vesper prayer service observed in many Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican and Lutheran churches. A "distorted, wild, blasphemous take," Mazzoli says in the album booklet.

Constructed as a suite of eight connected pieces, Vespers aims high, questioning our connections to technology, death and God. Instead of sacred texts, Mazzoli turns to contemporary poet Matthew Zapruder for lines like: "hello lord / sorry I woke you / because my plans / are important to me / and I need things / no one can buy / and don't even know / what they are / I know I belong / in this new dark age." Is it a plea from us, or from some computerized version of us?

it's on Spotify, too....
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D
