In its 22-year history, Naxos has only produced two new recordings of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto. But next month that's going to change - the Sinfonia Finlandia and conductor Patrick Gallois will be recording the big Concerto with the jaw-dropping, indeed somewhat unbelievably great violinist Tianwa Yang. As a delighted owner of her Sarasate albums and, as a recent listener to her new Piazzolla disc, I am already excited. She's 23 and she's already one of the best.

Despite this thread being so poorly defined and very much ambiguous, I'll try to use it with lots of reluctance.

Some new recordings which tickle my fancy:

Resolution is too low for me to read that beyond "Beethoven" and the names for two performers, Guy and Jordan.  What works are on this?

And the two other images don't show at all, although the URLS did when I hit quote.  Perhaps MDT doesn't allow hotlinking?

Thread name seems pretty clear to me, and I'm sure, to majority of the posters.

Complete piano concertos, it is a low contrast of words in blue on gray background, makes it tricky to read. :)

I do not owe you further explanation.

Thanks.  I'd be most interested in the Mozart.  Messiaen moves me minimally.  And, although I usually like what I hear from Naive,   I already have six full cycles of the Piano Concertos, including one PI;  I don't think I need another one.  But I seem to remember at least one of the individual CDs in this set was reviewed favorably on Ionarts.

Quote
After a praised discography; Ciacconas of JS BACH diapason découverte in 2005, Préludes, Chorals & Fugues de JS BACH diapason d’or in 2009, several records in romantic music; Schumann in 2007, Chopin in 2010, Edna Stern offers her first concerto recording.

She chose early Mozart concertos which played many times in a quintet format and for which she rediscovered this chamber approach with the soloist of the Orchestre d’Auvergne. As Mozart left Salzbourg’s archibishop to become an independant musician, his new concertos are a true change compared to the baroque form of concertos where the soloist was at the center followed by the orchestra. Mozart chose a passionate dialogue betwen the piano and individual members of the orchestra, where the piano express its feeling and the orchestra comments them, the winds play at the first person. “Both the level and the nature of the dialogue in K.271 were without precedent. So was the promotion of the wind section to the front ranks of musical diplomacy.Jeremy Siepmann

'In my view the modern piano, with its immense possibilities, can evoke at the same time or successively a whole host of characters and feelings, as in an opera. But it also retains sufficient distance to be able to express itself metaphorically. These characters seem to speak to us, but not in specific terms. Only the extreme precision of their phrasing makes them real and close to us. It’s all there in the notes, with incredible skill in the detail! And that’s what I love in these concertos: a skill that is so poetic and touching.' Edna Stern

Oh, foolish girl, you have missed a great opportunity! You and your modern piano...  >:(

BTW, my previous post is a demonstration that we need a thread simply titled "New recordings" [or "New releases", a bit broader], merely informative and independently of our own interest or lack of it on a particular new release. But this issue has already been discussed and decided and, apparently, the administrators and several members have another opinion.  :P

Do you mean someone told you not to start such a thread if you like?  How strange!

As mentioned elsewhere, I'm looking forward to Jacobs recording Mozart's Abduction from the Seraglio as well as more Mozart symphonies and some of the late piano concertos.  I'd like to hear MTT/SFS record a disc of Mason Bates's music and would love for them to release a recording of Schuman's violin concerto with Gil Shaham.  And I'd like Eric Whitacre to complete his opera and record it.

I think the whole issue with the thread called: "New and exciting recordings - A thread for posting about currently or recently released exciting recordings or recordings which are planned to be released and you think can be interesting." was a bit more complicated than just an initiative for a thread on recent issues... 8)

Personally I think there will be quite some overlap with the considering & purchasing threads, because new issues are regularly discussed there. And this thread, of course. If I myself want to post about an new issues I spotted but haven't heard or decided on yet, I post it in a relevant recordings thread - the Mozart's piano concertos thread in this particular case. :)

No, not me, David. It was a discussion on a new thread started some days ago by Henk (and referred by Q in his reply).  :)

It's just I was a bit surprised by the strong opposition to that apparently innocuous idea. After all we have a lot of thematically similar threads; anyway, it is not my battle.  :)

The Fine Arts Quartet at WFMT 1967-1973



The Fine Arts Quartet and Reginald Kell doing the Mozart and Brahms Clarinet Quintets:



And the same group doing the Bartok quartets:



And then I am trying to decide on a box set of the complete Haydn symphonies.  Fischer's sounds very good from the snatches on Amazon.com, though there are good reports of the old Dorati and the new Dennis Russell Davies, not to mention the Naxos set which Scott Morrison likes.

Coming in January 2011, Leif Segerstam conducts his own Symphonies Nos 81, 162, and 181. I've never heard any Segerstam, so I'm kind of curious how he has managed to write 181 symphonies. And I find it hilarious that the "name" of Symphony No 81 is "After Eighty." Duh?
