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.

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.
