    Manny,

    I would like to pick-up a few recordings of the MO... with you in it of course... ;-)

    Can you list some of your favorite recordings? :-)

    If you can, it would be kind of cool to know the equipment you are using too... :cool:

    Thanks!

    Rogerio,

    Nice of you to ask. I'll try to remember:

    My least favorite recording of myself was the Dvorak 9. Pre-Monette days, the brand is not important. The point is I dislike the rawness of the sound and when people ask me about sound concept this is a good way to show what I like and don't like.

    Alpine Symphony was on STC 1 (deWaart)

    Copland 3, Bernstein, Heldenleben were Ajna 1 (Oue)

    Pines was STC 1 as was Stravinsky album. There are others but I really like those. (Oue)

    Shoot! I forgot to say I love the orchestra on the Beethoven CD's of 4 and 5. (Vanska)

    Thanks Manny

    Thanks Manny.

    This is what I was hoping for...

    You know after all the talk about your method book and CD etc...
    I still think it would be a very cool idea for you to do a demo session for Dave... playing his various horns... the clip on the Monette site was awsome! It would be great to see and hear much more of the same.

    I know you say the brand is not important... but IT IS... you seem to prefer the sound and feel you get on the Monette... and it shows... I would love to hear Dave's horns being played side by side (same player, same passages) to Bach's etc... but that wouldn't be a cool thing to do... , can you imagine the raucous that would cause...?

    Anyway, thanks for the reply. I'll purchase the CD's this week.

    Funny you should mention it...

    We're getting a bunch of clips ready for the website and one of the clips I hope we use is a side-by-side comparison of 4 of Dave's horns, from lightest to heaviest. I hope we wind up using that one. If not now, then we will later.

    But, no, you're right. It would be a drag to get into brand comparisons on a commercial site that is about one brand. That sort of thing isn't called for and you won't ever see something like that on his website.
