Fritx who the hell on earth?  :laugh:

The fact that he is practically unknown to many of us doesn't mean that his music is not worth exploring  ;)

Very nice!! I very much enjoyed his PCs 2 and 4 as well. Röntgen rarely fails to please!

I share that feeling too. Consistency is one of his outstanding features.

Alessandrini Louis Couperin. No info on the instrument, two quasi-scholarly essays by Alessandrini in the booklet, the English translation is a mess. First impressions suggest an approach which is inclined to underline nobility, grace, sweetness and expressiveness more than thrilling foot tapping energetic music. There's something original in these interpretations.

He has an inspirational mustache. And Wiki tells us that: "His compositions show him to be a conservative late romantic."

Could be interesting: Raffael. Three mood pictures for choir, orchestra and organ (1902) opus 26.

SEPTEMBER GOODIES (continued)



D. 958 and 959 studio, 960 live



"This release features a unique recording of Elgar’s Falstaff played by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Andrew Constantine in two versions: both with and without excerpts from Shakespeare’s Henry IV Parts I and II performed by Timothy West and Samuel West. Alongside Elgar’s magnificent response to Shakespeare’s loveable rogue, we hear American composer George Whitefield Chadwick’s Tam O’Shanter, an interpretation of the poem by Scottish national poet Robert Burns."



"Alexander Veprik was regarded as a star in the young Soviet generation of composers of which Dmitri Shostakovich was a member, and his music was enthusiastically performed even in the distant West. But then he fell into disfavor as a victim of Stalin’s anti-Semitic policies and was banned to the Gulag. His name disappeared from program pages – and has yet to reappear."

Happening in the studio right now (so expect it in 2020): Carolyn Sampson recording songs by Clara Schumann.

Thanks for that. Is the 2nd video a work by Brahms? Sounds so peaceful.

As far as I could find out, it is a version by Friedrich Krell or Heinz Krause-Graumnitz.

Brahms version is quite different - but very beautiful aswell.

In October DG will be releasing a box with all of Beethoven's symphonies with Andris Nelsons and the Wiener Philharmoniker:

That's got to be the ugliest cover art of 2019.

Well, there is a lot of competition for the Reicha Wind Quintets, including several complete sets of the 24 works!  I own the 12-CD box w/ the Westwood Wind Quintet w/ 2 quintets per disc, so I was surprised how the Belfiato Quintet got 3 pieces onto one CD?  Looking at my own timings, 3 of the shorter works were chosen; most of Reicha's Wind Quintets are in the 30-40 minute range.  Dave :)
