That is a case where IMO it would not be right, not to let Holst have the last word.

Absolutely right Karl!

By any chance, have the Quatuor mosaïques' Haydn recordings been released as a complete box set? And if so, how do I go about getting my grubby hands on them?

Yes, they have. I hadn't bought them as singles originally, and then, when they came out as 2 boxes I managed to scoop them up. Shortly after, they came out as one box. I haven't seen them lately, but since I know they exist (the important part!), I also reckon they will be. out. there. somewhere!!! :D

:D  When it comes to HIP Haydn, I've been around the block in both directions and back again. ;)   I heard (but don't know for a fact) that the liner notes for this box consist of track listings... :-\

Try Europe. Sometimes they are virtually giving them away at places. JPC is one, when something is fixing to go OOP and they want to get rid of their stock, they sell it really cheap. That rarely happens in USA... :-\

Some things are almost too big for an amateur to tackle. The Creation is one of the most famous and popular pieces of music from the 18th century, and it was a daunting task to try and come to grips with it. Being somewhat foolish, but never feckless, I had a go at it. Part 1 published today, see if you learn as much from it as I did. :)

Maybe creation came out of the void, but this one didn't, it just seemed like it...

Thanks!

Very cool, Gurn. Thanks for posting. I'm anxious to give a read later. Seeing The Creation performed live last year was an eye-opening experience. Definitely elevated the respect i already had for the work.

Thanks, Greg. It is intimidating for a writer to come up against something like this. Even breaking it into small bites has its challenges! :)  Hope you enjoy.

I'm in Florida, some Henningmusick on a program tomorrow—otherwise I'd wade right in!

Florida, yikes! It's summer there, Karl (in case you hadn't noticed). All good wishes with the Henningmusick... :)

Fantastic, Gurn! Quite a mystery you have there, but very intriguing. Looking forward to your next chapter.
Are the four recording covers of Creation your personal recs? I own the McCreesh but haven't heard the others.

Thanks, Greg. Living as we do in the 21st century, we finally have a grip on many of those answers. Even back in the 1970's they were almost unknown. But even at that, it took weeks to get as far as I have. :)

They are all ones I think very highly of: 2 in German and 2 in English. I have many though, it's very hard to pick one and say 'that's my fave!'. I am going to post some other in future chapters. There are loads more German than English. Hope that balance shifts one day, I know Haydn would have wished it so, as you will see next time.

Things have been quiet here, I see. Well, I've been doing some undercover work on Haydn's Greatest Hit, if you thought he was a monk who missed his calling, you have a surprise coming, I think. Guy was a regular Rousseau!

More New Wave, actually...

Thanks!

Thank you both very kindly. I must say, the amount of information relatable to that work is overwhelming, it is all too easy to lose one's focus. Glad you liked it!  :)

I have a file which is Haydn 88 symphony which I've tagged Rosbaud, did he play it or did do you think I've tagged it incorrectly?

If this set below includes all southwest German radio recordings of Haydn by Rosbaud, there is no #88. (And I think the only studio recordings on DG are 92 and 104.) So it seems likely that it is incorrectly tagged.

Can I let you have a copy, see what you think? It may be a concert performance or a radio performance. Normally I’m pretty good about tagging correctly . . . I’ll put it here later so that anyone who wants can have a listen.
