Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 - Jeno Jando, Budapest S.O., Naxos.
A charity shop purchase. Don't look at me like that - it crooked its finger.
(Incidentally, there's still a problem with the forum software. Add an accent and the post gets automatically truncated.)

Let's have one more go at posting before I go to bed:-
My most recent CD is (Hyperion)
Well, I thought I might have cracked it by transfering my text from Word to plain old notepad before cutting and pasting it into the posting box from there. Obviously this is not the problem. It shouldn't be anyway, as I've always spell-checked texts of any length in Word before posting to othermessageboards without any trouble. So I'm still puzzled.
It does seem that text directly typed into this posting box is accepted without demur, but pasted text never gets past the first few words. Any ideas from web site gurus?
And no - there were no accents in my text (before anyone asks.)

Reason: Blasted text got truncated again!
Don, you seem to be having great problems posting messages.
Is it that you are using accents or is it something else?
Oh dear. I seem to have been rather profligate this month! In the last week 8 EMI Icon boxes arrived together with Gunter Wand's Bruckner Symphonies, Rubinstein's Brahms, Van Cliburn's Concertos, James Levine's Mahler and Schumann Symphonies, Munch's 10 CD Berlioz box and a 6 CD Michala Petri set, all on RCA via French Amazon. Oh, and Rozhdestvensky's Sibelius Symphonies, which I find extremely stimulating.
This week : The Braunfels quartets from jpc Germany; and from the same source the Borenson symphonies which I have not tried yet. On the way, The Gardiner Bach cantata series volume 3. I am about half way through my collection of the millenium cycle and loving every discovery so far.
Well it's not only accents (see my summary posted to ff's 'Problem' thread just now). It does seem to be connected with pasting text, rather than typing directly.
Something else ... like darstardly behaviour in a previous life or kicking the cat once too often? Could be.
I'll reform and go straight from now on - honest, guv.
You haven't mugged a vicar have you?
Not in living memory - The last thing I mugged was a pint of Old - Delicious!
