You knew it had to happen sometime, right?

Could be worse. You might have named it:
Off on the wrong foote.
The shoe is on the other Foote.
Shoot yourself in the Foote.
Footeloose.
Foote in Mouth Disease.
Etc.!

But I do like this set of his piano music:



And this disc of orchestral music:


Be kind to your fellow posters!!

I waas wondering about that piano set. It seems like his Piano Trios and the Piano Quintet are his most recorded pieces...

I just want to make sure 'The Foote Stool' REMAINS UNDER 'The Barber Chair'...

But seriously, I do love his chamber music. I have 4 CDs of it, I believe and every one is a gem.
Do what I must do, and let what must happen happen.

I have the NAXOS recordings and I remember liking the Piano Quartet the best.
I also have a few other works, all chamber music, in other compilations with other American composers of the time (Amy Beach, Chadwick, etc.).

Seriously girls, you know the rules. Composer Name+"place"=ThreadTitle

That's why there's so many BadThreadTitles on here, and I sorely wish I had the POWER to change any and all to my delight. Remember how "the malipiero mausoleum" wasn't capitalized? Wasn't that a horror? And what of the wonder of the 'Mozart' Thread?? What kind of ThreadTitle is that for Mozzie?

'The Foote Stool' is the perfect GMG ThreadTitle, in keeping with the house rules and such. BTW- I certainly would petition that Persichetti shouldn't be the recipient of the 'Pizzaria', That belongs more with, say, Pizzetti, no? I mean, really, people, let's chop chop and get going with the programme!! :-X

'The Foote Stool' stays UNDER 'The Barber Chair'- and let's try to keep it that way, shall we? 0:)

(putting on the D-Major SQ now, just to show you how committed I am!!)

I like the chamber music recordings on Naxos (of which I have a couple) quite a bit. But some of the music on the piano disc set I found pretty vapid to be honest.
