A couple of CDs from this recently bought, extremely cheap set.
Though the sonata no.30 was interesting and undoubtedly original, I decided that his style isn´t much to my taste, so it went to eBay.

Good morning, Harry  :)

A superb recording BTW, which going to make it onto my 2017 favourites list.
Recommended for those into Calvinist (Huguenot) psalm settings (like Sweelinck's).

This is an extremely impressive disc:



Intense and emotional music, well played and impressively recorded. Surely a candidate for favourite aquisitions of the year!

After having heard Sciarrino's pretty interesting (and pretty pretty, too) Stradella opera, I dug up my Stradella recordings, and this one is among them. Still making my way through a large pile of recently acquired or still unlistened 2017 discs, so Stradella has to wait for a while, but I'm looking forward to dig deeper (the one set I know somewhat is the double disc on Brilliant with arias - it's beautiful! also the recent Stradella disc by Chantal Santon Jeffery on alpha is pretty nice indeed)


Interesting and I look forward to reading any further thoughts that you might post in the future as I find Stradella to be both charming and absorbing and I do not have very much in my collection at present.

A wonderful work but I do not know the Haitink interpretation.

I have the first volume in this series, so it goes straight to my basket. :)

I've recently listene to it (the previous weekend). Very good, though an hour of solo recorder is amongst the most nerdy thing I've ever listened to.

The disc above is with accompanied sonatas and trio sonatas! :)

You were probably thinking of this "nerdy" recording with the Fantasias.....  :D
