This is fairly new:


Classical CD Of The Week: An Imaginary Orchestral Journey With Haydn And The LSO

Nice review, Jens. Thanks for posting.
I’ve been eyeing this, even sampled some tracks and highly enjoyed it. I believe I even posted about it in the Haydn Haus here and it went unnoticed. Will more than likely move it to my cart now!
And I do find Rattle’s creation to be more of a compliment to the master rather than an insult.

I saw it and it looks like an interesting release to me too. Just not in a buying mode...
Be kind to your fellow posters!!

Heads-up, Pärt fans!

Sampled it.  Nice music.  A whole CD may feel monotonous.



I'm not sure it was such a good idea to have quite so many people singing together.

April release.  This is an interesting british label.  Their Pavel Haas-Fata Morgana was excellent

Completely agreed. And this is even more true of earlier music. I suppose you have heard Roger Blanchard's recording of the Machaut messe or Clytus Gottwald's recording of Ockeghems Missa Prolationum, both rather telling examples of overcrowded choirs.

Indeed. The time for massed choirs in music earlier than Handels oratorios should be past, except in cases where the music was expressly written for lagre forces to make a point (Biber and the Maria Vespers comes to mind).

Also, no image, but there's an upcoming CD/DVD combo of Années de Pèlerinage & Deux Lègendes by Francesco Piemontesi, a pianist who definitely should record the whole set.  It's unnclear if it's just one year, or what.

Thanks for reading. Yes, a fun little compliment is what I took it as, too... rather than a dumbing-down. Nothing for the ages, probably, but delightful in a fun light little way.

Horrible covers, I think - almost to the point of marring this thread.

I think I posted that cover one a few of my giant posts ago. If not, it is definitely in the Naxos database for April so I can look tomorrow and find the track list and details.

I seem to vaguely remember that's that's exactly what Nilsson would would like when she sang Elektra.

Sure did:



That answers that.  Hopefully he goes the Mejoueva route and releases each year individually.  I think I will have to buy this one.

"“American Romantics III” is the third volume in a project initiated by conductor Reuben Blundell after he discovered several scores of previously unrecorded works by 19th century American composers through the Fleischer Collection. The composers represented were either native born or recently immigrated. Blundell leads the Philadelphia area Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra on this recording of premieres, some of which draw on Americana melodies while others reflect the prevailing Central European compositional style of the day. The Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1946 to provide music for the First Presbyterian Church of Lansdowne. By 1951 the orchestra had become Lansdowne’s community orchestra. One of the most distinguished community orchestras in the world, the LSO performs a regular season of five concerts at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center, and other various projects. Led by its sixth music director, Reuben Blundell, the orchestra continues its traditions of musical excellence, service to the community, and promotion of area talent."

The Lansdowne Symphony is from suburban Pennsylvania.

Nice!! The first two volumes of this series somehow slipped under my radar...

I don't find any of them problematic, and in fact I think the Chopin one is particularly nice.

I kind of like the Sophie Pacini one myself (even if I don't understand what it "means") ... but, as premont admitted, it's all subjective.
