Recordings You Want To See in the Future
« on: April 29, 2013, 07:07:00 PM »
Is there a recording of a work or works, by a certain performer/ensemble/orchestra, that doesn't exist, but you would like to see released one day?

For example, you could say, "I would like to see a complete piano works of Chopin by Jean-Yves Thibaudet."  (I'm aware of the "The Chopin I Love" CD, but no other Chopin CD's by him.)

However, don't suggest things that are not possible, like: "I would like to see a complete set of Shostakovich string quartets by the "original" members of the Borodin Quartet."  (IIRC They only recorded 1-13 because the last two weren't written yet, and of course, the "original" members are no more.)

What would I like to see?  This may sound silly, but I'd like to see a single 2-CD set containing the Transcendental Etudes of both Liszt and Lyapunov, all performed by the same person.  Such a set does not exist AFAIK, and I think it would be neat to have one.

What would the rest of you like to see released one day?

Another Hartmann and William Schuman symphonic cycle. 'Nuff said.

- a satisfactory recording of the restored original score of Janacek's Glagolitic Mass (Mackerras is decent; Janowski is a disaster)
- a suitably festive recording of Dvorak's Te Deum (again, current options are unsatisfactory)
- various tasks in mind for various performers: Edward Rosser should play Debussy and Satie, Ingolf Wunder should play Scarlatti, Tianwa Yang and Wieniawski, Sally Pinkas and Scriabin, Herbert Schuch in Beethoven sonatas
- remaining Bach cello suites on viola from Maxim Rysanov and Antoine Tamestit
- Mahler's Third from Warsaw PO/Antoni Wit (the best concert I've ever seen)

While I'm thinking about it, a complete David Diamond symphony cycle would also be on my list.

Off the top of my head, a complete rendering of Brahms' chamber music (including solo piano music) on period instruments; getting all of his orchestral material with period instruments would be nice, too.

Beethoven's late quartets and/or a complete quartet cycle rendered by a period instrument group would also be great.

We Brianites pray for the first commercial recordings of Havergal's Symphonies 19, 26, 27, 28 and 29. Brian's opera The Tigers is also wanted.

The unrecorded Martinu operas come to mind. And a +1 to that Glagolitic!

Also a modern, up-to-date cycle of Chavez symphonies would be awesome.

We Brianites ...
Somehow I misread that as "Braineaters."

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/h0qSkue8l6U" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/h0qSkue8l6U</a>

I'd still like to hear what Boulez would do with Sibelius's symphonies. And complete Quatuor Mosaïques Beethoven cycle, please. Hagen, too. More Ivan Fischer Mahler.

Dvorak, Sixth Symphony – Antoni Wit

A few years ago Antoni Wit did an interview where he said he'd been offered to record the complete Dvorak vocal/orchestra music - Stabat Mater, Requiem, Te Deum, Mass, The American Flag, etc. He said he felt he was too busy but would try to squeeze it in. Hope that will be the case.

Well, yes, an attractive idea.  But we already know what Boulez has done with Sibelius symphonies, pointedly ignored them.   A Boulez that didn't find Sibelius insufferable wouldn't be Boulez, afterall.

   The set of the Chavez symphonies conducted by the late,lamented Eduoardo Mata with the LSO on Vox will be hard to beat .
   Mata was a pupil of Chavez, and these recordings are authoritative, and the budget price makes it  irresistable . Hope it's still available .

I personally don't think they will be hard to beat. :) I didn't think much of those performances nor do I think the LSO were a good choice and the boxy sound from Vox doesn't help.

   We need an uncut recording of Wagner's Rienzi , perhaps with Christian Thielemann and  the Staatskepelle, Dresden, and Jonas Kaufmann .
   A new recording of  Die Schweigsame frau by Strauss, also with Thielemann and Dresden .
  Ginastera's operas Bomarzo , and  Don Rodrigo . The latter has not been recorded .  The opera Montezuma by Roger Sessions .
  A new recording of  "Evocations" by Albert Roussel , with Stephane Deneve for Naxos .

A new recording of that Strauss opera was just released on CPO, although since it is a CPO production, the orchestra will obviously not be in the class of Dresden. I agree with you on Roussel's "Evocations" (and some choral-orchestral music like the Psalm) but unfortunately the CEO of Naxos has definitely stated that their Roussel series is finished.  :(

THIS. I don't care if it's a single cycle. I just want to see a good period option for each of them.

I'd also like more recordings with Vera Beths as a soloist. She has a large catalog of chamber music, but only a handful of solo turns. But I don't know if she's recording at all these days.

I have no objections to either of those ideas, of course.  Another thing I'd like is for period instrument specialists to dig more heavily into Schubert's solo piano works.  I mean, sure, having the Impromptus available is nice but a box set of the sonatas would be wonderful.

Martin Bilson has done an excellent complete sonatas on fortepiano.  It is on NML but I'm not sure how easy it is to find otherwise.

Malcolm... one of our tutelary gods. My favorite Schubert, even over Badura-Skoda.  :)
