Canteloube's Crevasse
« on: September 24, 2010, 12:48:59 AM »
Hello,

I am a huge fan of Canteloube, but sadly much of his output seems unrecorded. Everyone knows the Chants d'Auvergne, but I really fell in love with his idiom after hearing an old (1962, I think) recording of his opera Le Mas. This opera is truly wonderful music--the lack of a commercial recording is disgraceful. The writing for woodwinds in Le Mas is superb, and demonstrates a fairly sophisticated sense of orchestration for 1913.

Does anyone here have any of his rarer works, and would be willing to share them on mediafire or rapidshare? I would certainly be grateful. I woud kill to hear his opera Vercing├ętorix.

For those interested, here is a link to the 1962 recording of Le Mas:

Note, however, that this is a heavily cut recording, missing some big, colorful choruses in act 2--there was another uncut recording, but I don't have access to it at the moment.
