I sometimes imagine Bruce Springsteen singing ondes martenot to his tune "Pink Cadillac" . . . .

Not quite as special (and not half the size) as the Gothic, though... given that there are more than a dozen of (largely) excellent recordings of it already available. (Chailly, Chung, Previn, Ozawa, Rattle, Nagano, Janowski, Wit (!), Tortelier, Salonen, Cambreling (!), and whoever else I'm overlooking (like T.Fischer or H.Vonk or De Froment or Le Roux).

Thierry Fischer, eh? I have a disc of his with the Netherlands Wind Ensemble (or some similar), an all-Stravinsky program which is very nice. I am intrigued!

Considering what I've heard from her, it's probably rhythmically slack and uninspired. I'd definitely pass on that disc, Daniel.

Not only that but you're lacking a lot of Mahler classic recordings and you want to get something by Alsop? Don't worry, I'm here to set you straight. :D

Glorious cover. I saw her Mahler One live with the Houston Symphony; it was a few years ago, when I was less enthused about Mahler, but her way with the finale had a clarity, shape, and energy about it that, along with Kubelik/audite, finally sold me on that movement. In fact her energy was what I remembered most about it, besides the feeling of "ah! I finally get it."

That said, I don't know that she+Baltimore are the most inspired pairing for new recordings... having seen Wit/Warsaw do 3 last year, I can tell you that if they had Wit re-record a couple of the symphonies to go with his newish 8th the results would be spellbinding.

P.S. A September release? How'd you find out about it? I only know the Naxos releases through June. Speaking of Naxos in June...




Oh, now looking at Amazon UK I see these:
RAVEL: Orchestral Music Vol. 1 (Naxos: 8572887)
1. Alborada del gracioso
2. Pavane pour une infante défunte
3. Boléro
4. Rapsodie espagnole
5. Piece en forme de Habanera
6. Shéhérazade
7. Menuet antique
Orchestre National de Lyon, Leonard Slatkin
November 2012

BERLIOZ: Symphonie fantastique (includes alternative version of Un bal with Cornet Obbligato) (Naxos: 8572886)
Orchestre National de Lyon, Leonard Slatkin
September 2012


...neither of which I am at all excited about  :-X

Perhaps live she's a different story, her recordings, on the other hand, would cure insomnia! I actually laughed at her performance of Bartok's The Miraculous Mandarin. Not a nice thing to do, but I just couldn't help myself.

That may well be the case. I saw her 'Planets' live in London (coupled with Adams' Doctor Atomic Symphony) and it was on the fast and furious side of things, very exciting and showy. The Adams stole the show, though - a riveting experience. I hope they get her recording that.

I wish Naxos would put their efforts into releasing more Berg recordings particularly with better conductors and orchestras since now they seem to employ them. I'd like to see a whole Second Viennese School box set. Now wouldn't that be cool? 8) They already have Schoenberg covered and can just incorporate Craft's excellent performances into the set.

Berg is largely covered elsewhere. Naxos should do a Mennin series!

I would like to see more Latin American recordings on Naxos. A new Chavez symphony cycle would be nice.

What should be on the first NAXOS Henning offering?

I will vote for: Out In The Sun. Nuhro, Sonata for Viola and Piano, Song of Simeon, and two future works, one in progress, the Dostoyevsky ballet White Nights, and then a work that even Karl does not know that he is composing yet, but he will, namely Variations on Achy Breaky Heart  :o    for Krummhorn, Kazoo, and Prepared Kitchen Sink.
