So --
Did you get everything on your Classical Music Wish List? My girls had some help, but they generously gave me these:

Hoffmeister: Wind Serenades
Ries: Piano Sonatas & Sonatinas, Vol 5
Sammartini: Concerti
Rolla: Viola Sonatas
Abel: Six Symphonies

I got one of those Naxos anthologies with popular classics. This one marketed as as an "enerygy booster". Anyway there was a piece from Peterson-Berger's "Frösö Flowers" which I quite liked as it reminded me of Chopin and such things. Petersen-Berger is a late Romantic Swedish composer who is a new acquaintance for me, but I listened to the Niklas Sivelöv recording of the rest of the Frösö Flowers on Spotify and it was very good. I looked up the composer and the encyclopedia said he was more significant as a critic than composer - well he must have been damn good critic...

My wife said that I could order one CD for Christmas. I chose "The People United Shall Not Be Defeated" by Rzewski and played by Yuji Takahashi. I guess it's quite rare and the one copy I found was about $30; but since I listened to it so many times on Youtube, I decided to just buy it.

On Christmas, I was lucky enough to receive some gift cards in the family grab, totaling $35. The cards are from Amazon competitors who shall remain nameless.

I purchased Schubert's "Trout" Quintet featuring James Levine and also a "Guitar Quintet" that looked interesting, and probably quite mellow...

...and since I was in a guitar mood, I bought a compilation of guitar concertos by John Williams (not be confused with the other John Williams who composed the music to "Star Wars").

Aside from that, I think I'll get some songs by Tony Bennet to round out my mix of Italian-American pop-singers.

All in all; I did alright.
