Apologies, there is a Part II of fun new JUNE stuff, but while I was typing it up, my ISP suddenly forgot GMG's new IP address and began giving me an error again. So I copied it to my phone, because my phone still has access. Here we are with Part II. An unusually rich month for Naxos.

JUNE PART II



That Naxos Castelnuovo-Tedesco cello concerto is a live recording of the first performance since the premiere in 1935. The Mayuzumi is a Marco Polo reissue.

Thanks Juliane! Martin Helmchen is probably an acceptable substitute, his name at least sounds quite forbidding and German, which is the important thing with Hindemith

:laugh:

Yes, but “Martin Helmchen” is not nearly as scary as “Glenn Gould."

Actually, Helmchen does sound rather funny in German. It literally means "little helmet" (or at least it could be read that way, the name has probably a different origin).
(Mauser is very different. It does sound dangerous because of the guns. And Siegfried Mauser recently was convicted of sexual harrassment, so he is probably more dangerous than Helmchen who seems a very nice and civil guy.)

Really looking forward to this one.  Hope it's good enough to finally replace the old RCA Lp.

It would be nice if Sony transferred that vintage Ginastera recording to LP.... 8)

It's excellent, and the university orchestra sounds great to my ears, though they don't pack the wallop of the Boston Symphony.

Yep, a great disc IMHO.

Ok agreed, that's definitely a little bit too scary and forbidding, even for Hindemith.

I wasn't extremely impressed with the Xiayin Wang recording of the Ginastera Concerto No.2 but I guess it's impressive people are recording Ginastera at all these days.

...and a devout Christian, on top of that. About as nice and gentle a guy as one could hope to meet.

Quite so, those "beauty farm" covers strike me as exploitative and incompetently done. They would be sufficient to prevent me from purchasing. The Naive/Vivaldi or Gardiner/Bach covers may be from left field, but they are attractive, not repulsive.

+1 on the Beauty Farm purchase prevention.

... which may make him dangereous again ...  ;)

Seriously, I'll be interested in Banse's violin version of the Hindemith, although I just bought the recent Naxos recording (Rachel Harnisch/Jan Philip Schulze), which got a very favourable review here (in German):

The 1948 version is very different from the original 1923 version, almost to the point of being a different piece that only incidentally happens to use the same texts. All of the recent recordings of Das Marienleben have been of the 1948 version. Banse & Helmchen are recording the original version, which is currently only commercially available in a recording with Glenn Gould as pianist (I don't remember the name of the soprano offhand).

Her name is Roxolana Roslak.  Alas, I didn't enjoy her singing at all... :(

Quartetto di Cremona, Beethoven SQ cycle in a boxset.  List for 56€ at clicmusique-a good price for 8 SACD.  On my wishlist

The performance of Siegfried which completes it takes place in June, so the recording will follow I imagine in 2019/2020
