Nice! I hope you enjoy it. I’m not sure how familiar you are with the composer’s style, but I think you’ll enjoy this set.

Not the Ravel. ;) I bought this for next to nothing, so I can’t complain.

I always end up buying things I theoretically don’t need and this was one of those occasions, but I’m sure many others here have had the same problem.

Some more Enescu for my collection:



I’m not expecting this particular recording of Oedipe from Hobson to be top-drawer, but the sound samples sounded rather attractive (to me). I will say the reviewer on All Music Guide for this recording needs to get his facts straight.

https://www.allmusic.com/album/george-enescu-oedipe-mw0001850572

The reviewer, Uncle Dave Lewis, goes on about Michel Plasson’s recording of Oedipe on EMI and what he’s unaware of is Plasson never recorded this opera and has him confused with Lawrence Foster. ::) A little research goes a long way!

8) Yeah, I had to buy it through Albany Records’ website along with Oedipe. I’ve enjoyed all of the recordings I’ve heard of the Chamber Symphony to be honest. The version on CPO probably would be my favorite of the ones I own right now.

I know the Lyrita versions of these fine symphonies. This will make for a useful complement.

AttentionAndre!


Attention Harry, Que, etc.



Quote
Described in The Times as “One of the most exciting cellists to have emerged for a decade”, former BBC New Generation Artist Andrei Ionita draws together some of the greatest music ever written for solo cello. Ionita gives the world-premiere recording of Australian composer Brett Dean’s 11 Oblique Strategies, from which the album takes its name. Dean’s work was inspired by the Oblique Strategy cards invented by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt to spark creativity. In J.S. Bach’s exquisite Cello Suite No.1 a sense of harmony is created using a single melodic line, with mesmerising results. Kodály’s pioneering Sonata (1915) is another giant of the solo cello repertoire, and the album concludes with Black Run (2001) by contemporary Swedish polymath Svante Henryson

I don’t know the disc of chamber music—which certainly looks attractive—, but did buy and listen to the recording of Oedipe under Ian Hobson (which I understand was recorded at the US premiere of the work) about a month ago, and enjoyed it quite a bit (even if the French pronunciation of some of the soloists isn’t that good). A courageous and commendable enterprise.

THREAD DUTY:

More stuff from Munich, this time from the wonderfully quaint and chaotic shop Die Zauberflöte:

This is a late cycle of work’s by Auric, for different combinations of chamber forces (plus singing in one piece).

The sound is apparently dismal, but having the great Victor de Sabata conducting Tristan with a distinguished cast was a must for me.

I’m not really that much into Fauré, but this program attracted me.

Good evening (morning), Rafael. Yeah, I’m definitely looking forward to digging into these Enescu recordings. As I said earlier, I thought the sound samples sounded fine in the Oedipe recording, especially the Preludes to Act IV, which is spellbinding. One of my favorite Enescu orchestral moments. That Auric disc looks interesting. I don’t know much about the composer aside from knowing his affiliation with Les Six. Would love to know what you think of that particular recording? I can’t believe you’re not much into Fauré. I find him to be absolutely worth the trouble of getting to know better. About a year ago, he was a composer that eluded me, then I started to understand how his music progressed and learned more of the composer’s own history where things starting opening up for me. Plus, I had gained much more experience since the last time I had heard any of his music. Time does wonders.

Edit: I see you enjoyed the Auric. ;) Good to read.
