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?
I've never heard one, either.  Pure prejudice on my part.  I find it hard to believe that anyone could write so many with none being critically acclaimed, if there were any good ones.  I find it hard to believe that one could write so many, period, and make them any good.  And I find it hard to believe that a guy with a full schedule as a conductor and teacher could find the time necessary to write good ones, let alone 100 of them.  (Mahler's the only guy I know who accomplished this and he managed only nine--10 counting DLVDE.  Of course, he didn't have the internet!)

He wrote 181 symphonies?   That sounds deranged.  Thirty two was enough to put me off Brian.  Maybe he calls every doodle he produces a "symphony."

Actually he has a whole different cycle of twenty-minute pieces he calls Thoughts.

Lubimov playing late Beethoven sonatas, here:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beethoven-Piano-Sonatas-Alexiel-Lubimov/dp/B004E2WK6W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1293869942&sr=8-1

I need another Op 111 like a hole in the head but this guy's interesting and I think he has done some of his best work recenlty (check the live Mozart PC24 on symohonyshare for example. Unbelievable ornamentation in the second movement.)

So I will pre order this one probably.

That looks interesting, might buy it myself.
Could you pass the links for Mozart? I'm not a member at sympohnyshare.

I'm a SymphonyShare member, but when I searched the name "Lubimov," no Mozart came up. However there are FLAC files of the Pathetique, Moonlight, and Waldstein sonatas, played by Lubimov on an 1806 Broadwood fortepiano. From an oop Erato disc.

No need to search, it's a very recent post and is on the first page itself. I don't mind posting the link, but I don't know if Mandryka minds my posting it here, so I'll leave it up to him. :)

Here's the PC 24

http://www.mediafire.com/?5m8bc8uo871bp

It's from a concert in Brussels last year with Concerto Koln (dir. Frank Agsteribbe)

Also from symphonyshare -- Lubimov in Beethoven PC3, (part of a live performance given May 2010 at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London.) I put it on there last year when Vereena was asking about this concerto.

http://www.mediafire.com/?cc9s3kgxsqe1d 

Enjoy -- both of them have given me a lot of fun :)

Thanks! I love c-minor concerto, so any potentially interesting new reading is more than welcome.

Thanks for these as well!

This looks like it will be super good.

Also I posted this in the you're listening thread by accident - I wish I was :(

Hyperion will be releasing two sets that may be of interest (in October):
1. The Complete Solo music of Gottschalk (an excellent series)
2. Beethoven, Complete Piano Trios by the Florestan Trio

Be kind to your fellow posters!!

                                  at jpc

Just out in Europe. I believe that the recordings stem from the Italian Tactus label.
Performers: Roberto Loreggian (Cembalo & Orgel), Ensemble ConSerto Musico, La Stagione Armonica, Modo Antiquo, Bettina Hoffmann.

AmazonUK is listing it for 38GBP, to be released on 8/22.  That price includes VAT, so it would be less to the US.  (Does VAT apply to orders shipped from the UK to the rest of Europe?)


Not being adept at exchange rates, I don't know if that's more expensive, less expensive, or about the same as jcp.
AmazonUS lists some of the original individual issues (not all of them), but does not yet mention the box.

jpc's 30 euros would amount to some 42 dollars, a lot less than Amazon.UK's 38 pounds = 62 dollars.

Beethoven, Complete Piano Trios by the Florestan Trio

I found the piano to be rather overpowering in these - not that it wasn't sufficiently restrained to aid balance, but in it being held back still produced an uncomfortably wide sound. Strange, as Schubert with a piano sounds fine to me.

The Gottschalk box looks cool indeedie.

Attention Nielsen lovers!



"Carl Nielsen: The Masterworks" from Dacapo

Featuring Thomas Dausgaard's recordings of the overtures and miscellaneous orchestral works (no concertos, but hey, this is "Volume 1"), plus Michael Schonwandt's complete symphony cycle on CD and on bonus DVD video. Victor Carr of ClassicsToday criticizes the DVDs for poor camera decisions, but still finds the DVDs (which come with bonus documentary) "immensely valuable." And of course the original CDs are still a highly regarded cycle.
