Lots of PBS this fall.

I hope they include his Westminster Piano Trio recordings.

SEPTEMBER - PART I

**new Emma Kirkby alert**


 

Could Chandos' habit of *not* saying the traditional Mozart concerto #s be any more assholeish? That's concertos 14 and 19, for those like me who do not have superhuman Kv. # memories.



September from Alpha

SEPTEMBER - PART II





Sarge alert!



For those waiting for this collection to be boxed, it is superb and 1, 4, and 5 in particular rank among the best ever, with 1 possibly the very best (I was present for the live recording of 5):

I never understand why, with a 'complete' disc like this, they don't put the works in numerical order. It's not like they have to place them in a different order to fit them onto two discs.

I don't often mind. It depends on whether the artist has put thought into presenting the music in an order where the transitions and contrasts are interesting/delightful, or whether the result sounds random. Have heard such things both ways. This recital of suites needn't necessarily worry about the cool feature some pianists do with, e.g., Chopin, of "building" suites by pairing works related in key.

Looks nteresting, particularly since given the line-up of soloists, I gather this will be using the original English text rather than the Czech translation used in the old Supraphon recording...

Image for the new Zimerman Schubert:




And a second high-profile recording of Op 97 is coming.  Which to get?  Both?

That strikes me as strange—such a popular, iconic work.

Maybe because what is essential is invisible to the eye?   ;) :D

A new album of Jonas Kaufmann in french repertoire



The usual suspects: Massenet, Bizet, Gounod
A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.

I hope they include his Westminster Piano Trio recordings.
Not all of them I think. It contains both of Schubert's, Beethoven's "Ghost" and a few by Haydn.
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

Thanks. I have an LP of a Dvorak trio they recorded but I don't know their whole discography. I'm glad the set includes both Schubert trios.

Also depends on the logic of the published numerical order, which might be very different from the order in which they were composed.
… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948
