The Sawallisch recording of Capriccio by Richard Strauss,with Schwarzkopf,amongst others. I've listened to a huge pile of operas over the last few weeks. Mozart,Weber,Kienzl,Nicolai,Gounod,Thomas,Bizet,Offenbach,Berlioz,Puccini,Goetz,Cornelius,Busoni and Marschner, have all featured;and now Richard Strauss! Not content with that I 've got Flotow's Martha (Heger) and Rimsky Korsakov's Sadko on order!

I played the Karl Böhm recording (Dg 1972) afterwards. Even without stereo,I preferred the Sawallisch. They're certainly good singers in the Bohm;but the Sawallisch simply outclasses it in every respect. I must admit I'm a bit of a fan of Schwarzkopf,too....and that recording team (Walter Legge).

 Grin I thought I knew 'my' Turkish composers, bought some CD's in Istanbul too and collected a few dozens more. But in this list, only Alnar and Akses are names I'm familiar with, and the symphony is the only piece I happen to know.  Lips sealed

Chance for a bit of YT research, Mr. Christo - a few others there may be new to you as well: certainly were to me not so very long ago !
