This two-CD album is coming



First album: Orion and the Pleiades for Cello and orchestra
Dreamtime for orchestra
Family tree musical verses for young people

2nd Album
A string around autumn
Nosthalgia
Star-Isle
Requiem

The sound in the samples I listened to is very good.  I may get it although I have most of album 2 in other versions.

Yeah, I saw this recording via Amazon Japan and it looks tempting, but there’s not enough works that I don’t know that would make this worth buying.

 He's worked with dancers on the music and he says that this cast new light on the phrasing etc.   He uses his organ in Gothenburg, and he mentions that  the scale of the instrument was an inspiration. Unfortunately he doesn't go into much detail about these two things,

Well, I'm curious..... Could definitely be a hit! :)

Caroline Huynh Van Xuan plays English baroque keyboard music, late and obscure I think. People I've never heard of -- Anthony Young, Jeremiah Clarke, Henry Hall, John Weldon . . .

There are a few of his Frescobaldi interpretations on Youtube, two toccatas and a canzona among them. There is no reason to deny his dexterity, and the canzona is most charming, but his toccatas lack direction and integrity IMO.

JANUARY PART II



A brand-new DSCH symphony cycle from a group I've admired in the past:



And from the department of WTF:



From the booklet:

Academic authentication of elaboration and completion of Robert Schumann’s sketches for his Sonata No 4 in F minor (1837) by Santiago Mantas (2011)

I have examined the material associated with the completion by Santiago Mantas of the first and last movements of Schumann’s Sonata No 4. These consist of
1. Photocopies of all existing autograph sketches
2. MS elaborations and completions by Mr Mantas
3. DVD recording of a studio performance by Mr Mantas of the completed score.

The work undertaken by Santiago Mantas to create plausible completions of the first and last movements of this Sonata is of the highest quality. The use of the existing sketches as source material is both sensitive and respectful. In both cases, the resulting elaborations reveal strong musicianship and a deep understanding of Schumann’s compositional style, providing us with credible completions of the movements concerned.

Very cool! Michael Jefry Stevens is an old friend from New York jazz circles.  We played together often - great to see his name on this release.

Paavo has gone to Outhere from Warner?

The Hindemith and the Prokofiev cantata interest me most.

Seems worthwhile.

I haven't seen the photocopies of all existing autograph sketches, MS elaborations and completions by Mr Mantas, or DVD recording of a studio performance by Mr Mantas of the completed score, but based on the timings, date & key: is this basically just the original scherzo and restored original variations and early 6/16 version of the finale of the Sonata No.3 Op.14? Because that's what I'm guessing it's going to be....

If this is similar to how he played them in recital, it will be, though in person he took close to eighty minutes for both books.  The gentleman who sat behind me was following with the score, and during the intermission said that after hearing Jumppanen play General Lavine, he had to rethink portions of the score.

Man, BIS ain't what they used to be :( They used to ardently champion lesser-known Nordic music, but now they're just churning out recordings of the standard rep, apart from the usual new releases of Kalevi Aho's music.
