This is how it started years ago, when I had very little of the music past 1890:
I am not a big fan of the classical and romantic periods (With more of the 1890s to 1950 work added as I develop). Some of the composers I am not familiar with at all.
I picked up Jancek in my college days, I think on Nonesuch and other budget classical labels. The Mladi sextet was a favorite, I thought it superior to any Mozart chamber works for winds, though I have found some divertimenti I like.
So, to patch up Janacek, I have only one CD of "hits", added
Janácek: Instrumental & Orchestral Works
Gary Hoffman (Performer), Leos Janacek (Composer), Charles Mackerras (Conductor), Mikhail Rudy (Performer), Pierre Amoyal (Performer)
[ended up with different disc]
I think that was 2CDs and another with Mladi and other chamber works. Some overlap on tracks. I had Mladi already on my one disc.
Your new CDs, or recent orders?
My stores are not the greatest, though one does actually trade used classical, not worth much. And half the store is jazz.
