Did we already post this? :)



http://www.jpc.de/jpcng/classic/detail/-/art/Johann-Sebastian-Bach-1685-1750-Orgelwerke-Gesamtaufnahme-auf-Silbermann-Orgeln-SACD/hnum/3172801

Ewald Kooiman; Ute Gremmel-Geuchen; Gerhard Gnann; Bernhard Klapprott (Organ)

This is the first complete Johann Sebastian Bach Organ Edition on Super Audio CD available in surround sound and played on famous historic organs on a label which is famous for it’s experience with organ recordings. In the same time it is a very precious and detailed documentation of the Silbermann organ tradition in the Alsace and includes the most beautiful and important instruments of this organ builder dynasty.

All the recordings have been realized simultaneously in two channel stereo and in five channel surround sound with state of the art equipment using the famous DPA 4006 microphones all over.
The booklet texts have been written by the German musicologist Peter Wollny (Bach-Archiv Leipzig) and by the Alsatian Silbermann expert Marc Schaefer (on the instruments).


I must admit that so far I have never been so keen on Bach performed on Silbermann organs - it's quite another game altogether...

[Paging Ilaria]

New Old Release:



[Spotted at DE]

Even with 50 discs, I wonder if it will cover all the solo piano and his conducting, let alone concerti and chamber music.
Especially as it, as an original jacket collection, mostly will contain 30 CDs worth of music.

I ran across mention of new EMI Icon releases for early 2013: Constantin Silvestri, Brigitte Fassbaender, Arturo Toscanini, Boris Christoff, and John McCormack.  I saw these listed as forthcoming releases in an "EMI Icon" search under the "Klassik" shop at Amazon.de.  Only front covers when I checked; no track listings or back cover pics.  I am especially happy about the Fassbaender and Christoff!  Too bad I bought her WINTERREISE just a week ago; it will make a chilly gift to some friend.
   Yeah. At last, the Silvestri icon' boxset will be release. If you want the interesting (but unconventional) way of Russian and Eastern European music, Silvestri is your man.

Complete track listing available at Decca Classics. 5 CDs of Shostakovich -- enough said.

Generous programming, to be sure.

But, oh, Decca, you oafs:

You left off [citation needed] ; )

Classic example of brain-mush being self-published on Wikipedia.  Someone convert "the time-lag between composition and performance is the reason that it was originally listed as Opus 77" into intelligent English.

And we love the especially weaselly passive voice here: "Opus 77 was then allocated to Three Pieces for Orchestra." (God bless Wikipedia: this is the first I ever learnt any such thing. And the most important bit of information here — who did the re-allocating — is conveniently omitted.)

And this was "due to [the] fact" that "Shostakovich shelved the concerto until after Stalin's demise, and then released the concerto under the Opus 99 numeration."  The dodgy logical connection aside, while I should revisit the relevant passage in Fay, the composer "releasing the concerto under the Opus 99 numeration" strikes me as mistaking the relation between Shostakovich and publisher for the publication culture of the West.

Since my first and primary exposure to the work was the David Oistrakh recording, which uses the Op. 99 I did not find anything dodgy about that numeration.

Ho capito, and I have seen that cover : )

This Sunday I should have more time for a better-documented post. I thought I had posted somewhat, over at the Dacha, but . . . maybe not.

FWIW, there's another Wikipedia page, where it reads:


Quote
•Op. 77: Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor (1947–1948, originally published as Op. 99

. . . with a footnote to The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Music.

As you said, this is mentioned in Laurel Fay's biography (as an end-note on page 329). But Amazon's sneak-peek thingy is not conducive to copying text to the clipboard. The gist, however, is this: initially assigned 99 to chronologically match the date of first performance, then reassigned to 77, to match the date of composition. 99 is currently provided to the music for the film The First Echelon.

Q

This is Bach on Andreas Silbermann organs, more French in concept than Gottfried Silbermann organs. Maybe not that obvious for Bach´s organ music. I am afraid, that this long expected release will disappoint, not the least because the Kooiman-pupils share the lions share of the recordings. Never-the-less I have (of course) ordered it.

the complete Lutoslawski symphonies (Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen).
Are 2, 3 & 4 new recordings, or reissues of the older ones? (As far as I'm aware, there hasn't been a LAPO/Salonen 1st.)

   Well, Lutoslawski symphonies by LAPO and Salonen can be great combo. But I have no hope for Bell and the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in Beethoven. The Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields is the good, provincing orchestra in Baroque and Classical era (but never IMHO  suit with Romantic music) plus the faceless interpreter like Joshua Bell, I can imagine the result.

The Vladimir Davidovich box would probably interest me greatly if I didn't already have half of it on my shelves.

Regarding Op. 99/77--I once read (I don't remember where, but it certainly was not Wikipedia) that DSCH did some minor tinkering with the score so he could tell the apparatchiki  it was a new work, with a different opus number, and not some of that old despised Formalist trash he happened to have still lying around the house.  But I don't remember what the changes supposedly were, and the "true" opus number was inserted as early as was politically possible.
