Thanks. Noted and ordered (together with Vogelsänger's CD Der junge Bach - also recorded at Lüneburg.)

Which contains Christe, der du bist Tag und Licht, which I thought was a good omen so I ordered it too!

Cross-posted from the "Recordings by Pierre Boulez..." thread (as my question might reach a wider audience here):

Has anyone ever dealt with St. Laurent Studio from Canada? They list several made-to-order CDs ( CD-ROMs, I presume) with live performances  by Boulez, mainly from Cleveland. It's 11 volumes, many with off-the-beaten track--as far as Boulez is concerned--, including lots of Schubert, Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart. There's also a Mozart Piano Concerto No. 21 with Robert Casadesus, no less (listed under the pianist's name, not the conductor's)-

Some examples:

     

As you can see, there are some editing issues (e.g., the Cleveland Orchestra is billed the "Cleveland Symphony Orchestra", plus other odd typos), but the contents is interesting.

They also have a whole lot of concerts of Bruno Maderna (including, very interestingly, him conducting Berio's Sinfonia in 1969).

And here some of the Maderna stuff:

And Maderna playing Brahms 1, I'm a bit reluctant to order it given that there are no sound samples on the website.

I'm considering Claudio Arrau's upcoming Complete Philips/American Decca box that's scheduled for release in Europe in March 2018.

Does this contain a remastered 1952 Diabelli Variations?

Anyone familiar with this?



Samples sound interesting but I've never heard of Collegium Ad Mosam.

I have never heard of them either. But I thought you might enjoy my initial misreading of their name as Collegium Ad Nauseum.

Sounds like the name of a group who might be the subject of a Spinal Tap-type documentary. Collegium ad Nauseam performing the Emetic Cantata, etc.. The potential is there!

I am now comparing all of Hyperion's online sound samples back-to-back. Osborne and Hough both record Images (all), Estampes, Children's Corner, and L'Isle Joyeuse. The non-overlapping tracks: Osborne has Masques and ...D'un cahier d'esquisses, while Hough has La plus que lente.

Crazy to let them record directly competing albums so close together.

Based on the samples, Hough has a habit of pausing for a fraction of a second between every single phrase of "Pagodes" which would drive me insane. In general Osborne's style seems more forward-moving and propulsive, while still of course being Debussian. I even like Osborne's sound better (Hough recording, which took place across multiple dates/venues, seems a bit muffled). Guess that decision is made!

I saw this a while back and posted it in the new releases thread.  I didn't really want it.  Then I reviewed the contents.  Then I reviewed them again.  It looks like I own only seven of the discs, which means at the current price, it would be barely over a buck a disc for 93 new discs,  including dozens of works I've never heard.  This may impossible to pass up.  The new year is almost here . . .

More Hans Leo Hassler organ music, the organ in question sounds interesting, though I've not managed to enjoy the music on harpsichord recordings.

I happened to pick up the Gramophone magazine with the review of the Osborne and they liked it very much.
Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

I vastly prefer Osborne’s pianism to Hough’s. I own Osborne’s solo piano set of Ravel and found it absolutely engaging from start to finish.
