I've been blabbing about the Schubert (Kertesz/WP) set for SO long, I'll probably be banned from the site, out of people being sick and tired of me mentioning it.  ;D :D 8)

Or made to listen to Bolero on repeat, for two days in succession. Choose one. >:D

Please don't troll, you're better than that.  I know you are.

It's a joke, Dave. I'm not a troll. I do like some Schubert.

Alpha's about to release Faure's piano quintets with the Quatuor Ebene and Eric Le Sage. Forgive the lack of accent marks. Sounds like a very exciting release.

Oh, and

This is good news! I'll definitely be getting this one after being satisfied with the last installment. Thumbs up!

Does that mean Ebene is leaving EMI? Or is this just a one time fling?

My understanding from meeting a gossipy Naxos employee in a pub July '11 was that Petrenko's contract with EMI (then still being negotiated, I think) would be an exclusive deal, meaning that Naxos would need to scramble in order to record the remaining DSCH, or plead for some kind of one-off exception by EMI allowing Petrenko to finish his work. I never did find out what happened; we the CD-buying public should know soon, I guess.

They look great! I hope Petrenko is as brilliant as he is in Shostakovich's symphonies, in those Rachmaninov's recordings.

Petrenko was already a noted Rachmaninov conductor before he recorded these for EMI. You should check this CD out:



To put it simply: you need this album, Ilaria.

That's a great disc, although I've only heard it from Spotify. Ilaria should be all over it.

Aye, not a new disc, but a great one, indeed. Nice alternative to Ashkenazy!

I can't believe I'm writing this but it looks like I won't be getting the Villa-Lobos recording on Naxos of Symphonies Nos. 6 & 7 and the reason is because of the audio quality. I listened to the last movement of Symphony No. 6 via NML and was incredibly disappointed by the lack of clarity through the sections of the orchestra. Looks like I'll stick with St. Clair's set, which I never had a problem with and consider them good, reliable performances. They certainly have the advantage of CPO's excellent engineering.

Thank you for the feedback, I'm really keen to listen to them! :) I must definitely start saving some money......

Don't care anything about this CD, but just wanted to mention how lucky a guy Edward Gardner was for getting his groove on with this woman. I mean damn!
