Glinka's Kalinka

I find Glinka so magical:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Glinka

If you don't like Classical Music, you will like Glinka. The opening power of Kamarinskaya is panoramic. I remember an old Olympia disk of Chamber Music that was wonderful. What do you say?

No, it was on Olympia. But I remember the Septet and Sextet. I also really enjoyed an old Naxos release.

I heard that. But Regis is reissuing some Olympia titles, so it may still be the same.

I am sure that is not the cover of the Olympia I had, but, now, the name Pletnev might have been on it,... but, I can't be sure. I will do some digging. If that is the absolute only option, then there are two Olympia covers (possible, maybe probable) to the booklet.


What tired me of 'Classical Music', and, I'll take the Beethoven Overtures set as an example (which I love, dgmw). Whereas someone like Beethoven starts with the dramatic motif, and then can proceed to the typically Classical sounding major-ish music, Glinka, in Kamarinskaya in particular, to me, keeps the mood going,... almost reminding me of Sibelius. Did any of that make sense? ??? I feel like I just put my finger in my eye, haha!! :-\ :P ;D

I'm a really big fan of Glinka. I have that chamber disc, and it really is wonderful. Kamarinskaya also is a wonderful showpiece. The Naxos disc of orchestral works is ok, but i think I'd like dig a little deeper into his works list.

Cheers!

Glinka seems one-of-a-kind to me,fresh and not academic. 'Kamarinskaya' is a Masterpiece of Russian melody! I had mostofhis popular stuff at one time, including that Olympia disc of Chamber Works.

What's the best Piano Music?

The best piano pieces are his more mature work, IMO.

A Greeting to My Native Land is a four-part composition that is fairly meaty:

I.   Souvenir d'une Mazurka in B♭ major
II.  Barcarolle in G major
III. Prayer in A major
IV.  Variations on a Scottish Theme

You can find everything that's been recorded on YT for sampling, which means all his published piano work.
