KLCC Beer Fest

February 13, 2006

Last night some friends, Anthony and I went to the KLCC Beer Fest. There were 40 different breweries there and Anthony and I tried our share. The beers were great, the company was good, but the highlight for me was the record sale.

I have a soft spot for vinyl and that is because it’s cheap. These records cost $1 each and were in perfect condition. Some of them even look virginal. Here’s a list of what I got.

  • American Graffiti Soundtrack
  • Bach, P.D.Q. – Oratorio “The Seasonings, S. 1/2 tsp., “Unbegun” Symphony, Pervertimento for Bagpipes, Bicycle and Balloons, S. 66
  • Beethoven Overtures (a whole slew of them) – Wiener Philharmoniker (Leonard Bernstein)
  • Beethoven Symphony No. 5 – NY Philharmonic (Bernstein)
  • Beethoven Symphony No. 9 – New York Philharmonic (Bruno Walter)
  • Beethoven String Quartet in Bb Op. 130, “Grosse Fuge” Op. 133
  • Beethoven Septet Op. 20
  • Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 2, and 4 – Rudolf Serkin, Philadelphia Orchestra (Ormandy)
  • Brahms Violin Concerto – Issac Stern
  • Brahms Double Concerto – Itzhak Perlman, Mstislav Rostropovich
  • Brahms String Sextet No. 1 in Bb Maj. Op. 18

  • Faure Piano Quartet in C Min. Op. 15, String Quartet Op. 121 – Guarneri Quaret, Rubinstein
  • Handel Sonatas Op. 1 for Violin and Harpsichord – Josef Suk (vln), Zuzana Ruzickova (pno)
  • Mendelssohn Symphony No. 3 in A min. Op. 56 “Scotch”

  • Shostakovitch String Quartets 6 -11 – Borodin Quartet
  • Strauss Don Quixote – Cleveland Orchestra (Szell)
  • Tchaikovsky Sextet – Guarneri Quartet wit Bris Kroyt & Mischa Schneider

I think I almost doubled my record collection. I got all of that for $25. Not bad eh? I’ve been enjoying the “New World Symphony” while writing this. My house is going to be full of great music for a long while.
