Georg Klimbacher (Bariton) & Andreas Fröschl (Klavier) - Tales of Love (Preiser)

Wonderful set that I frequently return to  since I´ve discovered  this young Austrian´s recording debut from 2016.
Klimbacher´s Schumann is good, and praise for including Ned Rorem.
Real treat, however, are the  Friedrich Cerha Lieder - a discovery!

Very persuasive Schumann. Dark and brooding. Romantic with a capital "R." Tennstedt doing his thing.

Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 "Choral" / Carlo Maria Giulini, LSO & Chorus, et al (Angel, 2 LPs)
Snagged this from a local shop's dollar bin a few months ago. I'm just now giving it a first spin. I was happy to find it because, generally speaking, I'm a fan of Giulini's conducting. His recording of LvB's 7th (with the CSO) has been one of my favorites for many years. 

... So far, I'm enjoying Giulini's LvB 9 too. :)

From this listener's point of view, Kondrashin's DSCH is unsurpassed. :tup:tup:tup

Hard to beat Reiner's "Living Stereo" Scheherazade. It's scary good.
