No, ritter does not think highly of this recording, as he's never listened to it  :D. DD's enthusiasm has made me consider it, but with 9 compete recordings in my collection (one of them--Armin Jordan--remaining unlistened to so far), my priorities lie elsewhere... ;)

Ah okay, Rafael. I was misremembering yet again. In any case, I’ll let you know how it is whenever I get around to listening to it. :)

A mixed bag today, from La Boîte à Musique in Brussels:

Rossini composed a series of impressive operas for impresario Domenico Barbaja in Naples, and this Ricciardo e Zoraide is probably the least known of them all (it's only been recorded once before, by Opera Rara in an expensive and not that readily available set). From what I've read, it's Rossini at his best. Let's see  ;)

This recent (2017) release of chamber music is a welcome addition to the rather scant discography of composer-conductor Gilbert Amy's own music.

And since there was a special sale of the Chandos label, I want for these as well:

Mainly for the overture to La dama boba, one of Wolf-Ferrari's last operas (based on Lope de Vega), which remains unrecorded in its entirety AFAIK.

I need another CD of Debussy's piano music like I need a hole in my head, but Bavouzet's performance of the solo piano version of Jeux (on another CD of this series) was so impressive, that hearing him in some of the pieces included in this release (Estampes, Images retrouvées, L'isle joyeuse...)  was too tempting a proposition to resist (at this discounted price).

Do let me know what you think of this Bavouzet recording, Rafael. I don’t really have a good track record with Bavouzet as I’m one of the few (if the only one) around here who didn’t quite take to his performances of Ravel’s piano music with the noted exception of the PCs, which I think he did quite a good job with. But his Debussy, from what I’ve heard so far, hasn’t been really to my taste. I also don’t really like the way Chandos records their solo piano, especially in Debussy as it’s too close and doesn’t really feel at all like a piano would sound in a concert hall.

I've had the Maxim conducting Dad in my eye for several years, decided to for it tonight.  I don't really "need" another LvB SQ set, but the Quintets are another matter...

Thread duty:



Seong Jin Cho's Debussy is really good, I think. Saw him in Warsaw when he won the Chopin Competition and was more enamored by the Canadian Hamelin (not related). But some of these releases since have been very impressive -- and this perhaps most so.

Very cool, Jens. 8) I heard some of Cho’s Debussy via the new Debussy DG box (Suite bergamasque). He does have quite a good feel for Debussy I think or at least by this sole performance I’ve heard. I hope the rest is up to par.
