No cover yet, but a recording of Stravinsky's recently rediscovered Chant funèbre, op 5. under Riccardo Chailly conducting the Lucerne Festival Orchestra will be released in January on Decca. The CD will also include Le Sacre and Feu d'Artifice.

For some reason, the "new" work is referred to in some links as "Marche Funèbre" rather than Chant Funèbre...

Oh great, more recordings of Le sacre and The Firebird. ::) I really wish the couplings were more interesting. :-\

I mean... seriously :'( :(... I guess we'll next get another round of Boxes to included the new work? lol


Though, there aren't too many works that I think neeed a new look... 'Movements', Concerto in D, Septet, ...but, yea, I really can't come up with anything that's reeeally needed here, can you? 'Persephone'?


I'm currently in Paris with LesSix & Co., )trying to wrap up the French Experience (with Jolivet, Dutilleux, and Boulez at the tail end... Ohana, Sauget. Stravinsky does seem to stand over the whole bunch... (and of course HVL, Malipiero, and the rest of em)...

I start with the fact that Poulenc did not write a String Quartet, and work backwards from there...

Somehow I always keep finding myself back at the later works.

I kinda fell into a Le Sacre thing in the last two weeks but alas, I'm back on the later works again  :laugh:

Snyprrr, did you ever get into The Flood?

If not, you should be listening to the "Building The Ark" movement by itself (as it is an instrumental section), it got a but of that Le Sacre intensity (Sacrificial Dance), combined with wind-quintet-Schoenberg and perhaps even Varese  :o

Really awesome movement on it's own  :-*


I am very partial to the flood right now  :D

Same here. There are masterpieces from all across Stravinsky’s stylistic periods that I enjoy immensely.

Yea, I AM having problems with IS's "Charlton Heston Phase". I'll check out that movement, which I'm sure I didn't make it to (Knussen/DG), lol. This piece, 'Narrative...' and '...Isaac' just give me the giggles...

If I had to guess where I'm at on the ol' Stravinsky-O-Meter, I'll have to go with... mm...mm...

........oh, it's really hard.... either 'Soldat', Septet, or 'Movements'... I dunno, I need that "rare air" right now as the seasons are changing... I'm gonna need crisp crisp crisp.... maybe the Music for Violin & Piano?, that's always lean and sprightly...(Mustonen/van Kuelen)...


like I said, I'm more in "Paris" right now, so, it's more of the SPIRIT of IS that I'm absorbing from the rest (trying to stay away from Tansman)... enjoying Francaix, Bozza, Rivier, Milhaud,... I think I'm getting more Igorout of Milhaud at the moment...


ALL WORKING UP TO THE XENAKIS DEBUT!!!


I find that IX went further... jumped ship... from the tail end of the 20th Century French Revolution: Jolivet, Dutilleux, Boulez, Ballif, Sauget, Ohana, Landowski... and I'm finding that the "nice" French Composers were still writing nice music well into the 60s and 70s (Francaix, Tailleferre,...)...


I'm rambling, lol

I just want you to be where I'm at... meet me at Le Cafe Chat somewhere between 1949 and 1961....


warp drive engaged!!! :P



REMEMBER, I STILL HAVE IGOR'S BUSINESS CARD FROM 1959... I CAN GO ANYWHERE, I CAN FLYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!WEEEEE

Stravinsky wrote great pieces from 1889 to 1967, everything else is garbage

Lol, I probably made that mistake cause Mauricio Kagel has a (awesome) piece of the title "1989", thanks brain!  :laugh:
