I heard a little feature by Frank DeFord on Morning Edition today that announced the beginning of sports' Ratings Season. He's referring to college football and basketball's infatuation with weekly rankings, and how they really don't bear a whole lot of importance. Right on cue, this list appeard from London's Telegraph ranking the 100 Best Classical Recordings.
Check out the list and see what you think! We happen to have a lot of these in our library, and I think it might be fun to start programming one of these a day...
The only thing that caught me off guard was the British section. Being the Telegraph, they're of course going to have an entirely British section, but I thought they glossed over a lot of great British composer by focusing numerous suggestions on Vaughan Williams (who, admitedly, is one of my favorites) and Elgar. Oh well.
Otherwise, I think I like the list. Leave your thoughts below.
