Roslavetz/Mossolov/Knipper SQs
Villa-Lobos/Ginastera/Orbon/Lavista SQs
Johnston/Downey/Craford-Seeger SQs

I'm curious about pre-crackdown Soviet music.  I've always been interested in Latin American music.  And I've read some about Crawford-Seeger, but never heard her.  Who are the ensembles on these discs?

Quote
Arditti SQ "Mexico"
Arditti SQ "Portugese Chamber Music"

What is on these discs?

Ah, thank you for the Russian curveball. Locked.

There are 4 Latino type cds I'm interested in, 2 from the Quartetto Latinoamerica, and the 2 Arditti. YOU WANT NAMES :o? (deflating sound)...They are all unfamiliar (and probably young) names-don't have the list here-but that is why I thought ALL 4 of them would make a great "when pigs fly" purchase. The Latinoamerica cds are obviously going to be slightly more friendly, but I heard the Arditti/Portugese album was totally charming (still, it's the most expensive one, on Etcetera). The "Mexico" cd I hear is more standard typical Arditti fare (which of course, isn't a bad thing).

I like that you skipped the normal stuff and went for some dark horses. Thanks.

Any more suggestions?

The one thing that stands out in this list is the Crawford Seeger quartet. If you don't have it, you should.

I have Arditti playing Crawford-Seeger on that famous Grammavision disc (find it on Amazon: Arditti 4). I was going to get THAT disc for the Johnston No.4 Amazing Grace.

Why not the Husa? Isn't No.3 (Pulitzer Prize 1968) supposed to have everything one could ask for?

The only reason I ask is because I've been in a Fine Arts Quartet frenzy lately.

And no one has mentioned the standard fare, Saint-Saens, Busoni, Wolf. I'll admit, with my...uh, budget....my list seems it would make anyone break out in hives! I do think I'll be going for the Saint-Saens: very nice easy listening for me.

Also, Arnold, Alwyn, and Rawsthorne just got into the running.

It's time for more 'Tell Me What to Buy'.







Seriously, I can't even think of where to begin:

post 1950.

unstoppable juggernaut type orchestral works.

stranger-than-fiction String Quartets or Chamber Music.







Leslie Bassett CRI

Wellesz SQs

Dallapiccola Apex

Stockhausen (too expensive right now)

Dumitrescu/Radulescu??

various cheapo CRI discs... guilty pleasures all!!




Basically, I'm at the 'buy things I'm really not interested in because I'm bored' stage. Help!!

There is a really good Wergo disc outside of the Verlag label which has Kontra-punkte, Refrain, Zeitmasze & Schlagtrio. There are also really good Wergo discs of Kontakte & Tierkreis. Get these. Get the Eotvos Gruppen/Punkte recording if you don't have that. Get the great Kontarsky Klavierstucke I-XI set which has the live electronic Mikrophonie works thrown in for good measure. Get the exceptional ECM album of Michaels Reise. Buy the Helicopter String Quartet documentary which is entertaining.













That will keep you busy for awhile.  8)

IT'S THAT EOTVOS DISC THAT (whoops) all of a sudden jumped a few dollars right as I was considering it on Amazon (I see they've dropped it all of a sudden as OOP). Otherwise, I'd rather have the one with Carre from the SV.

It's either the last of the Ssotakovich research project- which of course won't yield any actual New Music. There's No Xenakis... ever... waaah...

It's pretty much 1913-1983 that I'm interested in... either "pre-1950s" styled music, or some meaty snyprrr-petrarch-culver-james type of High Modernism...


1) sALLINEN CPO Box


2) -some other super Symphonies.....


3) maybe some extraordinary Szymanowski + Feldman + Stockhausen Piano Music?????? super wild baby,... super wild

4) Novak Piano Quintet

5) SQs???

6) spiky violin + piano

7) any standout concertos?

YES, more than 6


7) any standout concertos?

Yes. best modern violin concerto ever -- Terrain

I think you should have a Ferneyhough phase

Trinity (Flynn), Barraque' sonata. I'm assuming you've heard Natural Durations (Stockhausen)


7) any standout concertos?

Yes, that Ferneyhough/Arditti Cycle could be TheOne!

And yes, that Chandos disc could be...

Yes, thanks, - you're on my wavelength!! ;)

Yes, I prefer 'Persepolis' to just about any other Electro-Acoustic music. They said merzbow was the only other real option, but he just doesn't have what Xenakis had.- I mean- there's a LOT od Merzbow- I'd certainly be willing to take recommendations!

The obvious suggestion is his remix of Persepolis.
