Just posted this in Purchased thread, but finally got me a hard copy of the Faust Cantata, and another 2nd Concerto Grosso for my library. This also might be a candidate for craziest cover art!



I haven’t heard this recording in ages. Faust Cantata, of course, is one of my favorites from Schnittke. The best I can remember Rozhdestvensky does this music justice.
“I really would like to go to Marmorkirken. It was there that I heard music for the first time, and that experience is like a heavenly vision for me.” - Rued Langgaard
