In planning for this section, I first had to come up with some criteria. Since most CDs are of recent vintage, I felt that most of those could eventually be found. The same holds true for most of the LP's that have been issued. There are one or two notible exceptions. One is the Enescu Festival documentation LPs put out by Electrecord in Romania. These are limited edition LPs that were sold during the festival performances back in the '60s. In 1964, they issued a performance of the Bruckner Symphony No. 7 conducted by Zubin Mehta. Some of the harder-to-find 78's are available to audition on my download page.

After some considerable thought, I decided on three recordings. The criteria is simple - I doubt I could ever locate them again.
