Glazunov: The Seasons
Royal PO/Ashkenazy

First listen to this work. Some incredibly gorgeous music here. This and the Fifth Symphony definitely make me want to explore more Glazunov. A fine addition to the Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov school of Russian music.

Sibelius: Symphony No. 2 in D major
Berlin SO/Sanderling

Vine, Symphony No.5 "Percussion". First listen.



Frankly, this one isn't coming across as very 'symphonic'.

Morning listening ~




I am not a big stickler on sound quality, but...(German) DIVOX is actually one if the very best companies around (their recordings of organ music - the hardest to pull off - are really awesome). Another company with state-of-the-art recording quality is Æolus, which not entirely coincidental,  also German.

Q

Thank you, Que:) 

I explored their site and have added a number of recordings to my wishlist - are there any that you particularly recommend?  ;)

Monteverdi: Ottavo Libro Dei Madrigali [Alessandrini]…




Nice!  :)

I'm digging into some Schoenberg, too:

Verklärte Nacht, Op. 4 (string orchestra version)

This Monteverdi recording continues to delight and amaze!  :)



Hopefully the "new Naive" label will continue with the series.

Bach's organ music plays a big part in my life. Therefore I continue with this series, for the third time. It is no punishment :)

I admire this composer for many reasons, and I think others should too ;D

CD 1 - André-Modeste Grétry (1741-1813)
Céphale et Procris; Les Deux Avares; Anacréon chez Polycrate; La Caravane du Caire.
Sophie Karthäuser (soprano)

Concerto for transverse flute and orchestra in C
Jan De Winne (transverse flute)

This set has most made me aware of the musical qualities of Gétry (and of Gossec).
Exploring more of his operatic work is on the to-do list  (I'm sure that, amongst others, ritter and new erato can help me out there.... :))

More this morning ~



A fascinating program of (mostly) instrumental music from Claudio Monteverdi's time period.

Includes a superlative reading of Monteverdi's Altri canti d'amour from the 8th book of madrigals.  One wishes the same forces had recorded more mixed vocal/instrumental music from this book.

aligreto - are you familiar with this recording?

Dipping in to some of Stockhausen Donnerstag aus Licht, live-streamed from Theater Basel. (Sonostream - new to me - requires email and password, but registration is instant.)

The set alone is worth a view, and some of the costumes will no doubt provoke a grin, but the music is pretty compelling.
