Re: Malipiero's mausoleum SYMPHONY 6 ON DENON
« Reply #180 on: March 03, 2016, 08:16:15 AM »
No disrespect intended...I like lots of the early work; it's just got to wait until I've listened to the mid and late pieces that have hooked me in. The Pause Dal Silenzios are playing as I write (N.2 is great)...not that they're so early, but they are pre-1930. GFMs artistic periods gently reflect the the 20th C. development of the language. He is the first Italian composer I've listened to in a long while and I appreciate the emphasis on lyricism.

Check out Chris lee's "Castle of the Living Dead" for the kind of b+w mid-60s Italian Gothic Horror that fits in perfectly with the craggy GFM way.


I'm glad for your enjoyment. Yes, you must still get the PCs and the SQs (remember, the Dynamic version only- did you just say you're waiting? good)


Blustery spring is perfect GFM weather round here!!


ALSO, PEOPLE, PLEASE DO LOOK INTO SYMPHONY 6 ON DENON FOR THE SCRUMPTUOUS(?) SOUND!!

About his symphonies (the symphony is my favorite classical form)

This is a pretty good composer. You can perceive the evolution of your imagination for composing. The first symphonies are certainly impressionistic and warm (Sinfonia degli Eroi, Sinfonia del Silenzio e de la Morte, Sinfonia del Mare, Symphony No. 1). The following are a bit more avant-garde but not very dissonant (Symphony No. 2 to Symphony No. 7 including Sinfonia in un tempo and Sinfonia dello Zodiaco). The latter are rougher, they have complex harmony, many dissonances and more seriousness (Symphony No. 8 to Symphony No. 11 including the Sinfonia per Antigenida).

He made a very good impression on me.

Interesting overview. I like symphonies 3,4 and 7 most + the string quartets.

Agreed. I like 1, 3, 6, 7, and 10 the most. The Quartets are uniquely his own and 3-7 are my favourites, though they're all good. I feel the need to acquire some of his vocal works as his melodic flair is  powerful. Any recs?

Oh come on guys, and love the ugly Symphonies 8-11. They just keep getting craggier and craggier,... I mean, you love Havergal... Malipiero's Late Symphonies are a world unto themselves of bluffs and cliffs and caves and knotty trees...


A shout out to the Piano Concertos- you will love them MORE!! ;)

Oh, yes! They're pretty nice. I like more Sinfonia del Mare, Sinfonia del Silenzio e de la Morte, 1, and 3 to 7, but without demeaning the other ones.

Time to dip into the Piano Concerto Cycle on CPO, Karl.

I'm in agreement on the later symphonies. I used to listen to the more tonal-sounding works of 1930-45 and overlooked the later music, but that was more a tribute to the quality of those earlier works. But the less tonal works post 1950 are full of great musical adventures. I have more listening to do!

I don't know of any recordings aside from the Naxos series, which I find extremely lack-luster with respect to performance and audio quality. I'm waiting for an alternative.

mmm... only CPO might venture that, MDG,... but, y'know,... you KNOW that's probably not gonna happen on THIS planet in the foreseeable... but, yea, hearing all that craggy goodness in a crisp rendition would be sweet...

BUT, I thought half the charm of those MarcoPolo/Naxos Symphonies was their "Eastern European" quality? lol- I mean,- uhh...

Good!

Finished going through the PCs. The whole Cycle may be my fav PCs of the 20th Century, followed by the Concertinos of Honegger and Francaix, with the Helffer disc of Milhaud PCs rounding out. And then Stravinsky.

But the Malipiero set have an illumination to them... I have raved on and on... ahhhhhh... tonic!!

They're good concerti!  They deserve performances!  (“Yes, any performance would be more....”)

Well, they don't have BigTunes for the BlueHairs. I'm still in awe over that CPO Cycle, though. How about that early 'Variations w/o A Theme'?

I'd like to hear those newer Naxos discs...
