Donizetti: Rosmonda d'lnghilterra
Excellent performance!
Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

Gotta fend myself from the crazy office noise ... wasn't even aware I have this one on my smartphone (or rather on my 100 GB extra memory card) ... pretty cool disc fersure!

Definitely some of the best chamber music I've ever listened to. Strongly recommended, all of them.

Following a recommendation I recently made to a friend (but I'm afraid that, as Simón Bolívar once said, I have plowed the sea  ;)), revisiting Boulez's faboulous orchestral Notations (with the composer conducting the Ensemble Modern Orchetsra):


And then added the elusive chamber piece Improvisé - Pour le Dr. Kalmus as an encore...  :)

Haydn: Symphony No. 8 “Le Soir” [Freiburger Barockorchester]....





This wonderful work is given a fine performance here.

My favorite interpretation of these symphonies; IMO some of the most immediately accesible and bewitching symphonic works by Haydn.  :)

No. 6 'Le Matin' for me from this wonderful recording by Müllejans & Freiburgers. A shame that HM left No. 8 our of the Lumière box.
