Always interesting recommends, fellas! ;)


Ordered the Stravinsky/Knussen (DG)...

Might try some of that Nono...

I've sniffed it a few times, I guess I fear the "less than Philips" sound??... yes, forgot about Busoni and Scriabin...
\
My main thing with the piano now is SOUND, hence the Kocsis even though I don't seem to be craving Bartok. I AM craving that sort of Philips Piano Sound.

Mustonen is the kind of pianist who has that ridiculously refined touch (Pogo, Kocsis, Ranki?)... was listening to his Stravinsky concertos... I might even get Beethoven for the Mustonen, lol.


If you "get" the type of pianist I'm looking for, I might even get "doo-dah" just to hear the sound and playing.

lol, that thing has always scared me... must check on it...

Got it! You need this

Great question!

Only an indirect answer . . . the Hungarian cimbalom is similar to a hammer dulcimer.

One example of a chamber work including the cimbalom:

Man, that’s such a hip work. The orchestration alone is genius.

Indeed, sounds like dulcimar, and very effective. Thank you very much. Long time ago I heard dulcimar in an orchestrated music of Satie, but had no idea what recording that was.

Don't resist it, get the entire available works of Stravinsky box if you don't have it already.

You'll come back screaming for Aperghis within a matter of weeks  >:D

There is another earlier Stravinsky work (1916) that uses a Cimbalom in its orchestration
Renard
(Ба́йка про лису́, петуха́, кота́, да барана́. Весё́лое представле́ние с пе́нием и му́зыкой – The Fable of the Vixen, the Cock, the Cat and the Ram.)

Orchestration:
Singers: 2 tenors, 2 basses (in the pit with the other musicians, the mime / dancers on stage.
flute (doubling piccolo), oboe (doubling cor anglais), clarinet (doubling Eb clarinet), bassoon, 2 horns, trumpet, percussion (timpani, triangle, tambourine with bells, tambourine without bells, cylindrical drum, cymbals, bass drum), cimbalom, 2 violins, viola, cello and double-bass.

...another staging, pretty fantastic, fun, and wonderfully energetic;  lacking the cimbalom, upright piano with tacks in the hammers is a rather clever substitute.

Enjoy


Best regards

P.s. check youtube for cimbalom;  there are a good number of traditional Hungarian pieces there.  Look also under Concerto for Cimbalom. there are a few of them!
