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

I see you made an edit. :) I thought you might have forgotten someone. ;)

Beethoven: Mass in C Op. 86 [Richter]....


   

I´ve noticed that as a fine recording too.

Following Mirror Image's example, I've set up this "dream concert" for this evening, with Pierre Boulez as conductor:


Richard Wagner: Parsifal - Prelude to Act 1




Claude Debussy: Jeux (počme dansé)


---intermission--


Pierre Boulez: Pli selon pli (portrait de Mallarmé)

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

Thanks. That would be kind of you.

Paganini: Violin Concerto No. 3 in E major
Rózsa (violin)/Slovak RSO/Dittrich

I haven't listened to this for a while. Huge concerto, with a 7-minute cadenza in the first movement.

earlier - Bruckner 4 with Kertész (from "The London Years" box):



just now finished two spins in a row - first and second spin, another excellent disc by Regula Mühlemann:

Es wollt ein meydlein grasen gan:
Fick mich, lieber Peter!
Und do die roten röslein stan:
Fick mich, lieber Peter!
Fick mich mehr, du hast dein ehr.
Kannstu nit, ich wills dich lern.
Fick mich, lieber Peter!

Or the kazoo version of the Second Brandenburg.

Sarge

Is there really such a recording?

I'm sitting in my favorite diner, imaging the first movement with kazoos... The trumpet solos... Corrupted bliss...

Hopefully,

Alexandre Tansman ~ Symphonie Concertante for Piano Quartet and Orchestra (Symphony No. 3

Neoclassical, jaunty, tuneful, with more than a hint of 'American' jazz, ragtime, blues, popular songs of the day. (1931)
Lovely, and a lotta fun....

Haven't heard this, but I very much like Tansman's 4th and 5th symphonies.
