Also Kim Kashkashian, which I like.



 A big +1 on that Kashkashian set.

I quite enjoy the Sonatas & Partitas played on cello (Paternoster, and Bylsma has done some of them) but I would expect to be underwhelmed by the Cello Suites played on violin.  Prove me wrong, Rachel Podger.

I will admit I will get that recording mostly because of my interest in Podger.

When I posted this before, I knew the repertoire, but I didn't know about the involvement of John Adams - or the unusual, fascinating choice of singer.

I’ll definitely be buying this. It’s not like I need another performance of Billy the Kid, but Grohg will certainly be nice to have as I only own the Knussen performance (I believe it's the only recording of it prior to this Slatkin).

Speaking of Mahler, that M3 with Roth is intetesting, since HM has publicly committed to a complete cycle with Daniel Harding, but this is Roth's second Mahler recording with them (M5 came out last year). Could the label actually be thinking of issuing two competing cycles at once?

I think so yes, although whether these cycles will be completed remains to be seen...

He does conduct Das Lied von der Erde though.

And I think there is a DLVDE coming from Channel with Fischer as well at some point...

Yes, I presumed that. I actually thought they would record it much earlier, as I saw them perform it years ago.

That looks super interesting, and on the other hand it could turn out to be super awful.

There are even very good recordings on viola by Maxim Rysanov and Nils Mönkemeyer - but I share your skepticism about violin.

Also Kim Kashkashian, which I like.



Also Patricia McCarty, which I like, quite hard to find I think these days

I like what she does but you know the music better than I do so I'd be keen to know how you feel about it.

Looks interesting if rather pricey. UK release on 18th January:

MARCH!







Sauguet - Les Forains (1945)
Massenet - Herodiade suite (1881/4)
Ibert - Les Amours de Jupiter (1945)



"In 1728, the recently appointed court Kapellmeister Johan Helmich Roman was approached by Count Golovin, the Russian ambassador in Stockholm. Golovin was organizing a celebration of the recent coronation in Moscow of Tsar Peter II, and naturally wanted music to add to the festivities. His six years in London – where he made the acquaintance of Handel among others – and subsequent experience as assistant court Kapellmeister, made Roman the obvious choice for the count. The result was Golovinmusiken (The Golovin Music), an autograph score consisting of 45 movements of varying lengths. These are the facts as we know them, and everything else is conjecture: Roman’s manuscript lacks vital instructions regarding instrumentation, dynamics or tempi, and although the first three movements are in four parts, the rest are in three parts or (in a few cases) two. When a performing edition was being prepared in the 1980s, the editors came to the conclusion that the material was in fact incomplete, and a second violin part was added. It was also deemed that the order of the movements was probably not the one in which they would have been performed. The edition in question formed the basis for a partial recording of the work, comprising 22 movements. 290 years after Count Golovin’s feast, as Dan Laurin and his colleagues in Höör Barock recorded the complete work, their approach was a different one. Making use of a total of 18 different instruments – from sopranino recorder and oboe da caccia to bassoon, strings and baroque guitar – and featuring highly imaginative continuo playing from Anna Paradiso at the harpsichord, their performance sounds as full and varied as one might wish for, without any added parts. Laurin’s performing version also follows the order of Roman’s score, creating a number of smaller suites out of this greater whole that a wider audience now can enjoy for the very first time."

Not a cover art joke, the artist here really has no arms. Here is video, where I can't resist noting that he wears a watch on his leg.

Just watched a few videos of Felix. I've never heard of him before, but that's remarkable what he has accomplished. Bravo!

IIRC, our esteemed fellow GMGer Jessop (shirime) sang as a chorus member in the concerts this recording originated from. I, for one, will be buying this (as it’s a work I’m very fond of).  :)

The Kondrashin Rimsky/Franck disc must be just a reprinting.  Presto shows a release date of 2010, though out of print.  So the forgetful may want to check their shelves.
