If we didn't count the repackagings of existing material, this thread would be a lot shorter. But often those repackagings mean the material becomes far more readily available that it was before.

OK, OK. i broke down, I just pre-ordered it.   :)

For the 75th anniversary of Daniel Barenboim.43 CD+3 DVD



It is mostly young Barernboim 30-45 yo.  I heard him directing the LSO at 32 in Beethoven 1st piano concerto with 88 yo Rubinstein at the piano: a very moving performance.  Cant be found anywhere else.

74€ on Dodax.  81€ at Amazon.fr, 76 at Amazon.it

I was wondering when Sony might finally reissue some recordings by the obscure conductor Leonard Bernstein.

I have two reactions to this piece of news:

First, does this mean that there will be no separate set for the choral and vocal works?

Second, will the release of this monster set persuade those unscrupulous sellers who are sitting on their copies of the Sony "Symphony Edition" to lower their prices?

Historically, from what I've seen, the effect on the Marketplace is marginal. The only thing I can figure is those types of sellers are banking on the ignorance of the average shopper, the shoppers who are unaware of a competing edition.

This is from July, but I didn't spot it until now.  Apparently, Krieger, whose Brahms Second came out earlier this year on Decca, also recorded the Brahms First with Falletta a while back. 



A third new Fazil Say release in one calendar year.



I was getting ready to place an order for some Korean market discs, including Sung-Won Yang's (now first) recording of the Bach Cello Suites, when I stumbled upon this upcoming release: A new recording of the Cello Suites slated for release on the 25th.  GMarket has multiple offers for the set.  Looks like a hot release, at least as far as Korean classical music releases go.  Which version to get?

Spent big bucks on the Korean edition of the Martzy box a few years ago - great music of course:
http://www.yesasia.com/us/the-complete-recordings-of-johanna-martzy-on-emi-deutsche-grammophon/1030349976-0-0-0-en/image-gallery.html

Edited to add: the Korean Ferras box also seems to be making a reappearance, in the Icon series - not sure that one is an expanded version.

The Crebassa/Say should be interesting. Just hear her for the first time in the tv broadcast of new "Tito" from Salzburg (she sang Sesto) and found her most impressive.

I've seen some out-of-print "Masters" box sets from Sony, which were fetching "interesting" prices, suddenly and mysteriously become more affordable ever since a "Complete recordings" box was released. Since I already own the second Sony Bernstein and regret missing out on the first, let us say that I live in hope.

Trifonov alone would be fine.  Trifonov and Pletnev is better yet.  Trifonov, Pletnev, and Babayan on one release: Sign me up.

Update: Mikhail Pletnev re-orchestrated the piano concertos for this!

That could be a good thing, or a bad thing, or a meh thing.  But I must hear it.  Alas, it's still a month and half out.

That one may or may not be interesting ... I spent quite some money on the South Korean EMI box a while ago - and assume that one's duplicated in the ICON, with more music added?

According to the info in HMV's listing:
http://www.hmv.co.jp/en/artist_Classical-Collection-Violin_000000000034634/item_Christian-Ferras-Complete-HMV-Telefunken-Recordings-13CD-Limited_8109488

It's mostly a reissue of the Korean set "Christian Ferras - The Art of the Violin" indeed. There is one possible omission in the new set and that is Chausson's "Chanson perpétuelle", included on the final disc of the Korean edition.

Then, there are a few additions:

on disc 7, in addition to the Korean edition, you also get:

3. Beethoven: Romance 1st major, Op. 40
4. Beethoven: Romance 2nd F major Op.50

Hamburg State Opera Orchestra
Leopold · Ludwig (conductor)
Recording: January 1955 (Mono)
3, 4: first CD conversion

on disc 10, you get another version of Beethoven's first sonata:

2. Beethoven: Violin · Sonata No. 1 major major Op.12-1

Pierre Barbizet (piano)
Recording: May, June, 1962
2: first CD conversion

and finally, on disc 13 there's more bonuses:

2. Beethoven: Violin · Sonata No. 5 in F major Op.24 "Spring"
3. Brahms: Violin · Sonata No. 3 major minor Op.

Pierre Barbizet (piano)
Recording: May 1953 (Mono)
2, 3: first CD conversion


note: the Bando is there, it's just listed in the wrong place on the HMV site (it belongs onto disc 11, following the Berg, I assume)

anyway, I will not have to buy it for these bonus recordings, I think - have Ferras do the Brahms' sonatas on his DG set and the Beethoven romances w/Ludwig are included somewhere, too (I guess on the EMI Beethoven Masterworks set, haven't spent much time with that beyond the Heidsieck piano sonata cycle (one of the main drawing points when I bought the box, three or so years ago - no, the Beethoven romances are actually in the box "L'art de Christian Ferras", the DG set I refer to - that one remains the essential Ferras set in my book).

BIS CEO Robert von Bahr sent out a rather unusual email to accompany this new release. He usually pays a compliment to the album and relates some detail about how he discovered the artist, but this is the first time I've read something like this from him...



(track list/artist list, PDF)

Well, friends, I am not particularly known for being low-keyed and understated, and with repertoire like we have to offer, and the artistry, I can see no reason to be. Even I, though, rarely get so stunned that I don't know how to express the wonderment and admiration that something can be played that well.

This is one of those cases and, unsurprisingly, the artist is the phenomenal Zimmermann Trio (Frank Peter Zimmermann, Antoine Tamestit, Christian Poltéra, all established leading international soloists on their resp. instruments).

When I met FPZ he had just listened to the first edit of this amazing SACD and even he, the most low-keyed of musicians I have ever met, said that this was a thing to really be proud of. Truth be told, I don't always run to the studio, wild with happiness, to listen to either Hindemith or Schoenberg, but the way these masterworks have been played here is beyond understanding. It is not a Trio, it is one person with 6 arms. They went so deep into these works that we had to record them at three different occasions (very expensive indeed), to get the most out of them, but it was worth it. Possibly the best chamber music record in the whole BIS catalogue, and, therefore, anywhere (I told you I am not low-keyed!).
