This September, Naxos begins a series of the Villa-Lobos symphonies!



I'm seriously looking forward to this series. I hope they include some extras as well. I've been dying to hear another performance of Genesis and Erosao too. My fingers are crossed that it's not just the symphonies getting recorded but some other orchestral works as well.

Nicer cover art compared to the usual fare.

Three new releases from Brilliant to which I look forward (well, at least one is a re-release):

[images hyper-linked to Amazon UK]



Simone Stella plays Buxtehude's Organ Music




Schornsheim and Belder is Bach's harpsichord concerti. (I don't whether these are licensed, newly produced, or a mix of both.)


And finally, out of OOP-dom comes the Shostakovich Edition, with a worried-looking Dmitri on the cover.



Oh, and they've also boxed up all the Clementi mini-boxes. ;D

If his performance of the harpsichord works is anything to go by, it's going to be good. But of course, there will be the issue of the organ(s) used.

Well this comment sheds more light on the matter: the new set, recorded on a bright and authentically tuned modern Italian instrument which nonetheless can aspire to the colours of the Danish organs on which Buxtehude plied his trade.

Yeah, suuurrrre..... I think I'll pass... ::) I'm quite happy with Ablitzer and plan to get Koopman some day.

... and what about this, Navneeth? IMO, one of the most exciting re-releases of the last time.

Reminds me of historical recordings, e.g. Ysaÿe.

It's about time they reissued this box. I bought the original set (with the red cover) when it came out and before I could blink my eyes it became out-of-print. This will be a good opportunity for Shosty fans who missed the original box the first time around to buy it.

Edit: Wait a minute here, the Brilliant Classics set called The Shostakovich Edition (the red box -- the one I own) has 27 CDs. This new set coming out has 51 CDs. ??? WTF?

24 extra CDs?  That's interesting. 

The Amazon write up is, as usual with not yet released sets, very uninformative.  They mention Barshai doing the symphonies, which I have;  Galina and Slava doing Lady Macbeth, which I presume is the EMI recording I have;  Oistrakh and Slava doing the violin and cello concertos--well I have them both, but possibly different recordings.  Who does the string quartets, the other chamber works,  and the song cycles?

The Rubio Quartet performs the SQs in my box, Jeffrey. I'm not sure about the chamber works and song cycles. I'll have to dig my set out.

A third option, I think: a part is licensed from Berlin Classics (2 CDs):


BWV 1052–58, 1060, 1065
Recordings made 1990 (CD1) & 1992 (CD2), Paul-Gerhardt-Kirche, Leipzig

The third CD is a re-release from this set of BC own production:


BWV 1061–64
Recordings made May & June 2006, Schiedam/Leiden (CD3).

For it's silent on the most important points--who actually plays what.   I suspect I have a goodly chunk of the performances in that box, which means it may turn out to be a waste of time for me.  Unless there's a bunch of Melodiya recordings in there, and not the EMI/Philips-Decca recordings of Russian artists in the West.

I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Steinbacher and Petrenko performing Prokofiev? Looks mighty tasty.

At least yesterday that was listed under new releases at mdt.co.uk at £ 0.00.

Anybody like to take a shot?  ;D

Certainly... sounds as if it would be a really wonderful recording! :) Do you know when it is being released, John?

Yeah Daniel, it comes out Sept. 25th. I do think she'll do well in these concerti. Have you heard here Shostakovich VC recording? The only thing that I didn't like about the recording was the slow tempi Nelsons used in the last movement of Violin Concerto No. 1. It just didn't feel right. Everything else, though, sounded great to these ears.

Thanks for the response, John. I shall certainly keep my eye out for this! :)
No, I have not heard that recording yet but am certainly interested in it. I do need some more recordings of the Shosty concerti, so have been watching Karlo's recent posts and your responses on the 'considering thread'. :)
