My purchasing hiatus lasted two weeks


The last one is the Kinsella cello concerto recording mentioned in the Kinsella thread (it has a DSCH Firstconcerto to go along with it, as well one by a Peruvian composer I am totally unfamiliar with,  Celso Garrido-Lecca.

From Fnac Lisbon:

 



They were not cheap at €15 each, but that's the same price as ordering directly from Movimento Patrimonial pela Música Portuguesa. Which I probably will have to do to get volumes V -VII.

The Classical Music section at Fnac was rather small for the capital of an European country. I did find a well stocked private music store, but prices were... pricey...  ::)

Good to be reminded of it, because honestly I failed to play it since it arrived here, a couple of years ago; it's now on the turntable. The notes are by Kinsella himself, which is helpful: he wrote it for Carlos Prieto - to whom it is dedicated - and it came after Symphony 7 (which I find his best, so far) and even 8 (that he had to complete first) and was finished at Christmas 2000. There are two movements: the first a lengthy series of variations in search of the theme, a Quasi una Fantasia, followed by the Allegro con Brio Rondo, the (second) part that he wrote first and presents the main (rondo) theme. This allegro reminds me most of the Seventh. The concerto by Celso Garrido-Lecca is also a Prieto dedication, which explains the mix macédoine on this disc.
… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

I have that Trio Settocento set. I am pretty sure you will like it. Do you have anything from Rachel Barton Pine's non Baroque recordings?

Not yet, but I am looking in that direction. Thanks for the thumbs up for the Trio Settocento set. The samples sounded very good indeed.

JPC sells her 2-disc sets of the Joachim+Brahms concertos and the Clement+Beethoven concertos for 7.99€. Very tempting, I must say.

Just bought:

As always with Graffin, unusual and interesting byways. I’m particularly curious to hear the Ysaÿe transcription of the Chopin ballade and the Pijper works.
