I just don't think I care anymore.


My favorite piece right now is the Violin Concerto No.1 of 1949, a true Masterpiece in my view.



Otherwise, if I had to, I might turn in some Symphonies,... :(

I remember how surprised I was when DGG issued an LP of Symphony 8 (Baltimore SO/Commissiona I think). Like Okko Kamu's excellent performance of Symphony 6 it was never, as far as I'm aware, issued on CD. My introduction to his music, however, was Dorati's wonderful LP of Symphony 7. His Violin Concerto 2 is his masterpiece I think.

At this point, I think it's fair to say that anyone getting into AGP for the first time might have the same trajectory. Right now, the only one I want to hear is the most hated: 13, simply because it's one of the most complex works ever...
... yea, when I have an hour during a thunderstorm...



What did it for me was learning that AGP and BAZ both studied with The'Lieb(?)... and, whereas both seem to share an equal amount of notes, BAZ went so much farther... all the way to the other side, whilst AGP seems to have stayed in the 1952-3 development era.

Maybe not a good morning for me to start ranting... especially with everyone's fav whipping boy...
