I'm considering that Melos Ensemble box. It's sitting in my cart waiting for me to click buy...
Terrific stuff. Varied repertoire, superb playing.

I like the fretwork disc.




Well that's the one CDON.COM was unable to deliver because they suck. I got the other 2 Bach discs of my order. CDON is good with Blu-rays, but they sell CDs they don't have for some reason. This disc is probably OOP.

That Via Crucis is my favorite, among several I also enjoy a lot.  It has come out with a variety of covers.

Cool, Rafael. 8) The only name on this recording that doesn’t ring a bell is Séverac. I’m not familiar with his work. Worth pursuing?

I got the CD for Magda Tagliaferro, who was the dedicatee of Reynaldo Hahn’s Piano Concerto (and recorded it under the composer’s baton).

Déodat de Sévérac is a minor composer who wrote some agreeable piano music—mostly of the “bucolic” type, inspired by his home region, the Languedoc-Roussillon (it was all recorded by Aldo Ciccolini). There’s also a couple of operas, and not much more AFAIK. I haven’t listened to his music for decades, I must confess, and don’t have much recollection of it.

This is it, a twofer.



Wonderful music and performance.

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like I’ll just stick to Debussy, Ravel, and Fauré. ;) Of course, I love many other French composers, but these would be my ‘Top 3’. I still haven’t quite got on well with Hahn’s music. For me, it’s missing the magic ingredient that makes the afore mentioned composers so special to me.

Thanks, Andrei. I’ve seen this set before, but was unsure about it. Rafael cleared things up for me in his earlier post. :)

You're welcome,John, but I'm not sure whether you'd get it or not. I'd say get it, but don't ask me for a refund!   :D

Yup, was lagging behind a bit ... and they were sold out of the Jodie Devos Offenbach disc on alpha, which I'll have to wait for now ... was also considering the new Schleiermacher on MGD, dedicated to Italian futurism. Maybe I'll take it with me next time ...

@San Antone Not sure I understand you wrt "Via Crucis" - this is a new recording/release, what do you mean with "various covers"? I've not heard one bar of sacred music by Liszt, so I am curious (same goes for the opera fragment, which seems to be pretty strong).

It could be he's been the pianist in several different recordings:



That first one is the one I have.

Yes, they're all different. The white cover on Etcetera is a solo piano version, with Beths playing violin on the La notte.

Thanks for clarifying it, I was confused.  I love the work and enjoy his approach so I will probably get them all.

The guy has the Gunter Wand or Bernard Haitink Syndrome I suppose. How do you swing a deal like that?
