Thank you for reminding us again about Maerzendorfer. I do remember the set from browsing old Musical Heritage Society catalogues as well a full page ad in some record magazine.
Regarding Dorati, I once read Decca chose Dorati for its Haydn series based on several Haydn symphony recordings he made for Mercury. It's strange that none of the recordings made it into the three Mercury Living Presence boxed sets-- but room was found for an album of flamenco.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
