No SpringRite Thread??
Anyhow, it haaaas been literally decades since I listened to this music, so, it was with great surprise I saw this EMI/Rattle 2cd with 4 ballets.
And so I was very excited to listen to TROS, seeing as I'm coming off a Varese/Xenakis binge (yea,... not really 'coming off', haha!!). Well,... POW!!,... this recording seems spectacular!
I gotta tell ya, coming to this music from the other direction (backwards from Varese/Xenakis), TROS is the most awesome music think I've ever heard!
Of course I remember the music, but I've never listened to it with my 'new' ears. I just can't believe how Modern it sounds, and how much it reminds me of Xenakis and Varese.
Anyhow, I'm only writing this because of the Rattle. As this is the only recording I have to go on at the moment (I had Karajan a loooong time ago,... and maybe the Stravinsky/CBS), I'm really curious as to what you all think. I've heard about Monteaux (sic) and,... is it Dorati??,... and Boulez.
Some have said that the Rattle is a bit polite, or not as 'pow' as some. Seeing as I was blown away by this recording, are there better?
So, what do you think?
