Once positive about working from home during a pandemic: I can spin vinyl while I'm working. 

Decided to pull out this classic, Charles Gerhardt-produced set:

R-6763918-1426124874-3216.jpeg.jpg

Reader's Digest Treasury of Great Music 
12 LPs, 12 different conductors. All performing with the Royal PO.

Now listening to Charles Munch conduct Tchaikovsky's Francesca da Rimini and Bizet's Symphony in C.  I prefer Stoki's Francesca, but nobody (that I've heard) surpasses Munch's version of Bizet's symphony.

Lot of good stuff in that box.

I've been listening to Skrowaczewski's wonderful Ravel with the Minnesota Orchestra:

Specifically, Ma Mere L'Oye (ballet) and Valses Nobles et Sentimentales
