Koopman Forqueray. He somehow makes the harpsichord sound like a percussion instrument.

Is this to consider a recommendation?

I ordered this CD from an Amzon MP seller some months ago, but never received it. Should I do a new effort to get hold of it?

I'll send it to you. It is what it is and not another thing.

Prokofiev: Violin Sonatas - Ibragimova/Osborne.



This recording was recommended to me by oor Mirror Image (I've also the Kremer/Argerich - that one suggested by North Star) and thought I'd give it a listen to on account of attending a performance of Prokofiev's Op. 39 quintet this afternoon.

Awesome disc! Hope you enjoy it, Nik. 8)

Finishing up Arnold's 9th from this recording:



Man, this final Lento is deep stuff...

Would like to know what you think of this work? I see you’ve changed your avatar to Arnold as well, Kyle. 8)

Wow, I never thought I’d live to see the day that you listen to Vaughan Williams. Did the medication wear off? ;) ;D

He's not among my favorite composers, but I listen to his works occasionally.  Why is that so surprising?

It’s surprising given your heavy diet of Germanic music.

Debussy, Stravinsky, and Takemitsu are all in my top 10, and Monteverdi might be too...
