In honor of Randy hunting down his Korean 100-Cd box of Barbirolli recordings, Here's a place to name your favorites. It's not just for him, but for me.
I used to count JB as one of my three favorite conductors, but that was a long time ago. I still find his Vaughan Williams and Elgar among the best and but reach for his other recordings quite infrequently.
To my ears, the most reliable JB recordings are his NY Phil ones- I've never heard one that disappointed me. The Tchaikovsky 5/Schumann 4 disc comes to mind. But mostly I haven't listend to him much in recent years. If others have some suggestions, I might reacquaint myself more.
