i could not agree more. these days when i'm thinking of the 'next' record to listen to, more often than not, my sense is what smaller combo or solo classical piece can i grab that with scratch the itch. something 'fresh'? chamber music of all kinds being my favorite.Half of the pieces are chamber and or solo performances. This is the ideal ratio in a genuine collection.
Westminster WL, Vox, London LL and CS, Capitol SP and P.
These will be the most obvious gems.
i did not start out 25 years ago with this perspective, but as i learned about classical and expanded my knowledge and experience, my system improved over time allowing some music to be more accessible, it's just the way the path led me.
now maybe i have 1500 more choices in the 'best case' scenario. which one's would a Gramaphone reviewer want to have? it could be rich.
