Mahler: Symphony No. 1 [Horenstein]....





This is my favourite version of M1; it has been so for a very long time.

Sluys Schnittger/Uithuizen Bohm Christe der du bist tag und licht. I think there are some fabulous verses here, with mystery and nobility. The organ is clear and colourful and warm, and the registrations bring a sense of fantasy throughout, despite the gravitas and penchant for slower than usual  tempos. There are moments of tremendous élan too, where the music flies.

Bravo to Sluys for challenging the idea that Bohm is a charming minor composer, this partita is deep.

If you're familiar with it, how does this compare with Savall's Hume?  I love that disk...


Nope, sorry.   :)

Not a big Savall fan myself, and I've shied away from him tackling English repertoire after trying his Purcell - out of character IMO.

But the Naxos set is very good. Daniel Taylor's contribution is worth the pricd of admission alone.

There are two Hume recordings by Savall, the second is specially interesting for me.

Beautiful instrument. It's the first thing that strikes you !!
 Years ago I fell in love with Moroney's Kunst der Fuge, with the last Contrapunctus completed by him.
 Some agogic oddities (IMHO) , easily metabolized the second time you listen the disc.  Happiness !
.

Yes, easily. I never heard an issue there.

Wiren: Triptych [Wedin]....





I really like this work with its conversational musical language and its orchestral scoring.

I listened to the BAT playing Mendelssohn this morning.  Not typical listening for me, but I enjoyed it.  Those trios were the first tracks in this box:
