Hey, for some of us new means "this millennium".



Interestingly, this is Naxos's second recording of the Weinberg.  The first was with Ilya Grubert



Did their A&R man get confused by the Weinberg/Vainberg thing?

A nice development is the return of United Archives.



(From MDT).  I think I'll grab this before it disappears again.

I think it's the other way round; the majors cannot sustain their business model and are getting smaller and smaller.

Actually the new Naxos CD is a world premiere recording of the 20-minute-long Concertino.

Brian, what's going on with this Janacek/Wit recording Naxos? ??? I'm getting conflicting reports of it's release date. It's going to be released in the UK Oct. 31st, but I can't find a US release date for it.

Was extremely excited to see this new recording planned for release this month!



My favourite piece ever (along with Mahler 9), one of my favourite living conductors, and one of my favourite orchestras! :)

Definitely added to the basket!

Not only do I have this Salonen Mahler 6 release to look forward to, but now also this new one from Antonio Pappano!


Very excited! :)

A bit ho-humm, very notably live... and altogether a slight disappointment. (Partly because of high hopes. Then again, it's a grittier account than I 'feared' Salonen would deliver... so that's good.
And it's S-A, which is the 'proper' order of the inner movements. :-)

Shall give it another spin tonight, but would be surprised if this cracks into my Top 10 Mahler 6ths.

Oh dear, disapointed to hear this! Thank you for your opinion/warning! Yes, S-A is definitely the correct ordering of movements! :)
So which are your top 10 Mahler 6ths? My favourites are Solti, Bernstein (DG), Abbado etc...

Without revising much (or filtering out obscure ones, like the Duisburg performance):


"Rough"

Benjamin Zander, Philharmonia Orchestra, Telarc

Pierre Boulez, Wiener Philharmoniker, DG

Jonathan Darlington, Duisburger Philharmoinker, Acousence

John Barbirolli, New Philharmonia Orchestra, EMI

Mitropoulos, WDRSO, Greatest Conductors of the 20th Century / Urania

Michael Gielen, SWRSO, Hänssler

Christoph Eschenbach, Philadelphia Orchestra, Ondine


“Beauty”

Iván Fischer, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Channel Classics

Herbert von Karajan, Berliner Philharmoniker, DG

Simon Rattle, City of Birmingham Orchestra, EMI

Rafael Kubelik, BRSO, Audite

-

I shouldn't forget Solti, of all people, to whose Sixth Sarge has opened my ears and gotten me beyond my admitted anti-Solti bias in Mahler. 

I'm a little surprised to find Rattle in this list, but I was sober when I compiled it and deeply immersed, so it must be true. :-)

Great choices - all the ones in the "beauty" choices would be in mine as well, plus the Barbirolli. No Bernstein for you?!

Furtwangler Collection on Vinyl!

http://www.audite.de/en/news/251-vinyl_production_wilhelm_furtwaengler.html

Quote
With the great demand for the LP version of our internationally successful Furtwängler 12 CD boxed set (aud. 21.403), audite now presents a selection of recordings in LP format for audiophile vinyl enthusiasts. Containing compositions by Beethoven, Bruckner, Schubert, Brahms and Wagner, the LP boxed set (comprising 14 LPs on 180g vinyl) presents principal works of the CD boxed set.

These RIAS recordings are documents of historical value: The majority of the concerts given by Wilhelm Furtwängler and the Berlin Philharmonic between 1947 and 1954 were recorded by the RIAS Berlin. The original tapes from the RIAS archives have been made available for the first time for this edition so these recordings also offer unsurpassed technical quality. The recordings document a major part of Furtwängler’s late oeuvre as a conductor.

Release date in Germany is November 18.

Glad to see that it's not just another recording of Svendsen's symphonies - they are quite well-represented in the catalogue. Beginning with their Halvorsen series, it looks as though Chandos are jumping from the Netherlands to Norway for inspiration :)

The Svendsen looks beautiful, his orchestral works are really stunning; I might purchase it too  :)

Yes, I love many of Svendsen's orchestral works as well! :)

Sigh, this image posting system on GMG really needs to be sorted!  >:( It is the new recording from Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic of Rachmaninov's Choral Symphony etc. :)
Have a nice evening Ilaria!
