In Amazon.com I have found this:
a double CD full of interesting stuff (along with the Stabat Mater, there is also the d-minor Symphony "La casa del diavolo" = The Devil's House: rococo Paradise and Hell together ):
Link There is also another double CD with I Solisti Veneti, conducted by Claudio Scimone and the soprano Cecilia Gasdia:
See details here
Go to the YouTube section: in one of the last posts I have put the video of the I movement (Stabat Mater Dolorosa) from another recording.
To day or later i want to open a topic about this work and unpload one or two short mp3s.

Hi Sorin! Kujiken's Petite Bande and The Age of Enlighment It must be a good recording! If I find it in one of my usual on-line stores, I will put it in my whishlist.
I've given this a good listen-to, and it is indeed a good recording. Some consider La Petite Bande's Haydn symphonies to be 'definitive,' though I'm not sure I'd go that far. They have a good romp with them, I'll say that much. The Violin Concerti and Sinfonia Concertante are why I bought it though and they certainly didn't disappoint; hearing the former on period-instruments makes them seem much more substantial, and the latter was a true joy. The album is pretty cheap, so it's definitely worth the price.

...Elgar was a violinist himself and his writing for the instrument scintillates.
Edward Elgar - 1857-1934... Just late enough for there to be an old recording of him playing the principal role himself! Do you know if any exist, Mel?
There's a nice copy on EMI with Elgar conducting which has both the violin and cello concerto recorded 1932 and 1928 respectively. The violin features Yehudi Menuhin who conducts the above version. Good stuff if you don't mind old recordings.
