Definitely one to get, given the quality of his Mahler cycle.

When we have details like recording dates and whether the CO has gone conductor-less in Fey's absence, I'll try to post them.

6, 7, 8 were recorded in March 2014, Fey conducting (before his accident). 35, 46, 51 were recorded in June 2016, no conductor listed, but Benjamin Spillner credited as Concertmeister. A local boy, Timo Jouko Herrmann, is conducting the next scheduled concert, one of only two on the calendar this year.

That cover art really is horrific.

Imagine if they had left the arrows !



Saint Sebastian's martyrdom has been represented hundreds of times, especially during the italian Renaissance. That cover art is simply a politically correct representation, in tune with the times  ;)

Pierluigi Billone: Sgorgo Y.N.oO, for electric guitar


There are not many works for solo e-guitar in the genre of New Music, as the e-guitar has a bigger place in other genres. But if you listen to this recording by excellent guitarist Yaron Deutsch, you will wonder why. Played with brilliant technique and an elaborate sound, this CD takes you on a journey through the cosmos of Pierluigi Billone.

Self-recommending - will pounce as soon as I receive the Hyperion email.  I wonder if they have finished their traversal of the Machaut songs (3 discs so far), or just taking a break.

To be honest, I thought it was horrible.

Bjork writes her own songs for her voice as a reflection of her delicate and quirky personality. "All Is Full of Love" is a really good song when sung by her. Renee Fleming doesn't even come close to sounding like Bjork.  Renee Fleming sounds like someone singing Bjork in the shower.

I agree with you here. I thought Fleming did a terrible job as well. Bjork's music does not lend itself to vocals that are sung in a classical stylistic context. That's one thing I don't understand about Fleming in general. I think she's a fine soprano but when she tries to sing other genres of music, she completely loses me because she treats the vocals very much the same way she treats classical vocals or at least this is what I've encountered when she has strayed away from her 'home turf' so to speak. I really wish vocalists of her high caliber would stop trying to cross-over to other genres and just stick to what I believe they're actually good at.

The number of recordings of the Rosenkranz Sonatas has exploded over the last couple of years!  :o  :) And many by such outstanding Baroque violinists.

I see the need for a personal assessment of what is now out there that can possibly complement or even replace my Andrew Manze set, a violonist whose quirky style I'm generally not so keen on but he prooved to have a knack for Biber....

PS Would be interested in your personal shortlist  :)

Tried listening to Renee Fleming performing "Joga", one of Bjork's finest songs in my opinion. Didn't hate it, but it didn't really convince me that it was worthwhile either. Despite the strings, it is too self-evidently a pop song, complete with beats.

Also... whoever at Amazon decided that "Guðmundsdóttir" is a surname needs to be slapped with an Icelandic clue stick. Having been in a couple of CD shops in Reykjavik, I can guarantee that this is not how it works.

It's hard to follow this ever growing discography. An old version? Music Antiqua Köln (still superb); one not so recent: Walter Reiter and Cordaria on Brilliant Classics, and a newcomer: Lina Thur Bonet and her Musica Alchemica on Pan Classics... Don't forget the Spaniards, they are doing some outstanding things the last years.  :)
