Du Fay, Guillaume (c. 1397-1474) - Motets from the recordings shown below - have more discs of this composer than remembered, so will likely spend the weekend w/ him - :)  Dave

Quote
Guillaume Du Fay; also Dufay, Du Fayt; 5 August, c. 1397 – 27 November 1474) was a Franco-Flemish composer of the early Renaissance. A central figure in the Burgundian School, he was regarded by his contemporaries as one of the leading composers in Europe in the mid-15th century. His uniquely contrapuntal and complex motet "Nuper rosarum flores" demonstrates the influential exchange of musical ideas among artists around the world during the early Renaissance period.

Thread duty:
Symphony 2 - a magnificent work.

(Re: Lilburn) A great work, Jeffrey - the scherzo and finale, in particular, remind me of a certain composer who we claim to be experts on ;D

Poème des rivages is a great work, also quite colourful, evocative and even sensuous. d'Indy at his best as an orchestrator. The Symphony is in another league, much less inspired and bland, but it's forgivable because it's an early work.

Disc 1, sonatas in a minor D.537, in B D.575 and in A D.664, whose heavenly fist movement defines schubertian lyricism. The first and third of these were recorded in 1982 when Brendel was at the height of his considerable art. The second (the B major sonata) is from 2000. His playing had stiffened, not a reflection of declining dexterity, rather more a hardening of his musical arteries.

Disc 3, LvB.  Opp 13, 57, 31/3.  All rock solid, if individual in nature.  In general terms, the impression is as generally positive as with his cycle.  I'm going to have to schedule some time for some compare and contrast sessions.

I very much like the combination of brass and voice in the Cantica Symphonia recordings, it's a while since I listened to those motets but in fact, just yesterday I played one of their Dufay masses, se la face est pale, and I was really impressed by the brass/voice combo.

Symphony No. 4

I've been seeing some posts previously about this release from Toccata.

I detect a craggy atmosphere, it could even be depicted like a baleful memory or event like that, imbued with certain rhytmic vivacity finishing with a relatively happy ending. There is a pasasge that features an Arabian flavour to it, the most swinging one iirc. I was strongly reminded of other composers, whose musical connection would be apt (H. Brian, Marinuzzi, Copland, Schmitt, etc.). It goes from dark to light, though the ending was not that convincing, I hoped a most cathartic conclusion. Contrapuntally speaking, it has arresting ideas. The booklet says "in E flat, certainly, though I don't notice it as such. If something, E flat minor fits better.

What an interesting repertoire. The Berners and the Harrison look tempting music. What they sound like?

I really like their contrapuntal sound & ensemble playing. Not so much a fan of the first violinist's intonation.
