I know many people (well, probably two or three  ;D) have searched the Sonatas & Partitas for Solo Violin performed by F. Fernandez on Flora. Now those 2 discs are, apparently, being re-released:

Because it's Flora! They practically work only to satisfy five or six members of this board.  ;D

How are the accompanied sonatas BTW? :) The samples sound good.

Excellent no-nonsense interpretations; IMO, a typical performance from "the Kuijken Circle".

It's a truism of record collecting, that the rarer and harder to get a disc or a set, the more esteemed it is among the self-declared cognoscenti.

That's especially true if there are two (or more) versions of a work by the same performers.

That rule is being put to the test when Regis re(re)leases the mono set of Wilhelm Kempff's Beethoven Sonatas. (Which I actually do think is superior to his stereo re-make, as I find it more playful and easy-going.) (Out May 21st.)



This is already available and I've been waiting for this set of the PS to come down in price for a long time now. My first ever classical music recording was the LP from this set with the ubiquitous 8/14/23.

I could not find the Regis on Amazon anywhere so MDT got the nod for $OZ 24.26. Add in about 8 bucks postage and this is a bargain. I hope it will be waiting for me when I finally get back home on the 26th
Cheers

GREAT!!!!! I saw them do M1 at the BBC Proms last year, their performance of the finale was the most thrilling I have ever heard. Hope it's at least nearly as great on disc...! :)

I just got their Mahler 4 and Dvorak 7 in the mail; apart from the interpretive quality, the culture/sound of the orchestra and their rapport with Fischer make everything they do distinctive and well worth hearing.

Schoenberg's phenomenal "Hanging Gardens" are hiding behind this Beethoven-insinuating cover:


Schoenberg, Beethoven, Berg, Haydn
An die Ferne Geliebte, Hanging Gardens, Altenberg Songs et al.,
Christian Gerhaher, Gerold Huber
Sony


On the occasion of Christian Gerhaher's release of Schoenberg's "The Book of the Hanging Gardens" (Sony, June 26 2012), here's a rescued and republished article from the WETA column:


Christian Gerhaher, Othmar Schoeck, and Stefan George – A Love Story

WTF?!? How is the album already streamed, before it's even on the market in hard copy? Drats.
Hopefully it will stimulate purchases... to issue the "Hanging Gardens" -- esp. on a major label -- is a gorgeous risk and highly unusual for today's release-policies. May it be rewarded. :-)
