1) Aperghis: 'Avis le tempete'
An exhausting "opera" thingy... I listened to a bit on YT and just didn't need the stress...
2) Stravinsky: 'Persephone'
Don't really feel like listening to a tenor, though I like the music,... eh, I just can't get excited here...
3) Stravinsky/ Bartok: Piano Music (Ranki;Apex)
Again, I like his delicate touch, but I have trouble getting excited over the music.
4) Stravinsky: 'The Flood/ Requiem Canticles...' (DG)
I can generate just a touch more excitement for this... I don't know why I just can't get excited over Igor?!?!
5) Malipiero Piano Music
I like his Impressionistic early stuff... but I lose interest in the quirky/uppity stuff.
6) Bartok Piano Muisc: Kocsis Box
I have been trying to make myself believe here, but I just don't think I can handle some of the simpler stuff. And, sampling a few of the 'Romanian' this and 'Hungarian' that, that most of Bartok's output here seems to be in the miniature range. I'd be more interested in 1-2 discs of the "important" stuff. Don't know if I can deal with 'Mikrokosmos' and 'For Children'. I know you guys are going to try to convince me here, but WHY? After Modern Piano, it has been hard to go back to pre-1951, even if it's scintillating ,... I dunno, give it a try...
How are the Piano Concertos and Violin Concertos? anything other than the Symphonies?...
I'm really scraping it here... I almost feel bad for not wanting anything...
Nono: 'O Sole...'
Massive opera thingy, probably more angst than I want to deal with right now. How bout '...Sospeso'?
I guess I'm good?
