I will be interested in GMG comments on how these new Warsaw PO Szymanowski recordings differ from the Warsaw PO's previous cycle, recorded only 5 or 6 years before with Wit/Naxos.

(Maybe Ms Chemin can get back to the business of completing her LvB sonata cycle.)


Also coming, with no images available yet, Roberto Prosseda's complete Mendelssohn piano works in box-set form, and Steven Osborne playing the Ravel Piano Concertos.

DG has also come up with an eight disc box-set reissue program, with conductor and orchestra pairing: Fluffy/Berlin, Bernstein/Vienna, Abbado/Chicago, and Boulez/Cleveland.

I can already tell you I prefer the performance of Litany for the Virgin Mary with soprano Aleksandra Kurzak to Wit's. I took a little sneak peak via NML.

It seems as if the Buxtehude recordings are new, but there is no information about the organ, as far as I can see.

I asked Rubsam about this via facebook, he said (if I understand correct) that the new Buxtehude on his website is in fact a remastering of material he recorded for Bellaphon, ie Metzler organs. I'll try to check later -- apparently he's remastered all the Bellaphon Buxtehude.

He's going to record the Bohm suites next week -- he said all 10 of them plus one extra one he's found "isolated" -- we discussed Geoffrey Thomas's Bohn a bit too, he was surprised that the CD says it's on a Keith Hill lautenwerck . . . I like that Geoffrey Thomas CD.

I am not so sure about this one.  It is a Pasticcio work made up of arias from Hasse, Vinci, Leo, Vivaldi and Porpora, and not an original Haendel composition.  Why not buy some CDs of the original works instead ?

Because they doesn't exist (in many cases)? That said, this Handel nut hasn't bought it either.

You are a man of our days... Modern world and its cult to overrated novelty and originality.  ::) ;D

BTW, I love some Baroque pasticci and I even consider some of them as true masterworks. For instance, Vivaldi's Bajazet.

The Walser I know is the swiss writer Robert.  I have read (and enjoyed) most of his books.  I almost bought a book of Martin but the german litterary critics I read were quite unfavorable so I skipped it.  You can put a piece of duck tape over his name and think of somebody else.

Ha, I love Robert Walser's writing ... but alas that grand narcissist that's stylized to be a chronicler of post-war Germany (make that post WWII, next war may well come up with all the Trumpses, Le Pens, AfDs etc.) is a totally different case. And I guess I can't ignore his voice, so I'll stick to the Magellones I already have and alas not hear Gerhaher do it.

Ha! Guess I'll go for that ... and for one won't complain about half of the piece being absent (my main quibble with the DFD/Richter version). Thanks, hadn't seen that yet!  :)

The Foldes items are a must, the Faerman a maybe.





The Prosseda Mendelssohn set.  Ten discs.  That's a lot of Mendelssohn.

The Faerman has had some positive reviews, at one time I was going to buy the LP and get it transferred. Anyway I didn't, and these days I'm less interested in Brahms than before, but I'll try to hear the Paganini variations.

The astonishing thing about Faerman's Brahms is the piano colours, like woodblocks sometimes. Reminds me some things Annie Fischer did in Bartok and Schumann. In that sense this is a completely original interpretation as far as I know. I was expecting muscular, fast and furious, an exercise in stamina, but it's not fast, and he knows how to make the music sound expressive - more like Arrau than the earlier Michelangeli recordings.

I did not know this existed until I saw it in the window at La Boîte à Musique in Brussels on Sunday, and I bought it immediately.

I heard a short excerpt on the radio yesterday.  It is pianoforte, so it is different.  This excerpt, although nice sounding, didnt make a sufficient impression on me to go for it, especially after giocar comments.  I guess I should stream it at some point to double check.
