This is the super-duper all-inclusive list of my classical music collection. It's really not much of a collection (yet!) but I am working on it. If you came here from my wish list, scroll down to the "Most Wanted" section at the bottom!

Music I already have

This is a listing of the classical music I already have on CD. It is broken down by piece rather than CD. I don't object to having duplicates of some pieces (by different artists) if there are other things on the CD, so I have included which artists as well where possible.

Most Wanted

This is the list of my current most-coveted additions to the above collection. You may generally notice a pattern of style and instrumentation. My dad would also have good suggestions.

  • Beethoven - piano sonatas
  • Mozart - string quartets (whatever I don't already have)
  • Tchaikovsky - symphonies
  • Wagner - The Ring Cycle (all four full operas. I have a recording picked out on my amazon list...but these are expensive...)
  • piano trios - particularly Mendelssohn and Beethoven. I'm greatly enjoying the few I bought on iTunes by the Florestan Trio.

I have some preferred artists. Reading the list of what I have, above, will give some idea. In general I have a soft spot for:

  • Philadelphia Orchestra
  • Itzhak Perlman (violin)
  • Joshua Bell (violin)
  • Vladimir Ashkenazy (piano)
  • Emanuel Ax (piano)

Hard to go wrong with those folks.
