Vivaldi in Blue - Venetian Diary

http://classicalcompass.blogspot.hu/2017/04/vivaldi-in-blue-venetian-diary.html

The famous Blue Vivaldi disc.
What a strange language you do have - the title can not be translated normally because you might think 'sad' or something similar.
But it's simply blue, blue as a colour only nothing more...

Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
« Reply #268 on: May 18, 2017, 08:51:25 AM »
Last time, I discussed how Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto Number 1 was rejected by Tchaikovsky’s mentor, the best pianist in Russia, Nikolai Rubenstein, – who termed this concerto “pathetic,” among other insults. But after the concerto’s successful premier in Boston, Rubenstein changed his mind and actually conducted its premier in Moscow ...

Mahler – Symphony No. 5
« Reply #269 on: May 26, 2017, 10:40:26 AM »
In the past I shared with you my conflicted thoughts on anti-Semitic German composer Richard Wagner. To balance things out, today I want to point you to a piece by the Austrian Jewish composer Gustav Mahler, whose music I learned to love only recently. I had tried to listen to him in the past and quite simply did not get his music until I heard “Adagietto” from his Symphony Number 5 – conducted by Valery Gergiev.

Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6
« Reply #270 on: May 29, 2017, 02:01:10 PM »
A good friend asked me if I thought Tchaikovsky was overrated or underappreciated. A few years ago I probably would have said overrated; now I say both.

How To Build A Top Quality Classical Music Library: The Second $100

https://www.forbes.com/sites/jenslaurson/2017/06/02/how-to-build-a-top-quality-classical-music-library-the-second-100/


Quote
Back in February of 2013, George Pieler and I wrote a column here on Forbes.com
(“Two Cents About Classical Music For $100”) on some of the market- and technology-
changes that affect this sneakily growing, more-important-than-you-think niche in
21st century entertainment: classical music. We followed this up with an actual list,
“How To Build A Top Quality Classical Music Library For $100” – which refers back
to a 2011 post on Tyler Cowen’s “Marginal Revolution”. Here’s the sequel.

The complete list on Amazon on CDs – and as mp3s/streaming.

Am less recommending having a look at the Swedish composer Ralph Lundsten´s website for its quality, than for it being ... unusual:
