Started the day with the 10th disc of Vernet's Bach cycle, it includes the Trio sonatas. Vernet is playing the Treutmann organ in Graufhof-Goslar and the Thomas Schott organ in the Klosterkirche in Muri, Switzerland (pictured).


Now on to Mozart's German Dances by Bruno Weil, I had forgotten how much fun these are! :D



It is now included in a cheap Vivarte Mozart/Weil reissue - you guys better hurry! :o :D It's too late for me - I had already gathered all the items in that 4CDset... ::)

This will be my last post for a few days - my flight for Rome leaves late this afternoon. Will be back next Saturday. :)

The set was tempting, but I have multiple performances already, so I let this pass me by. Some CD'S less to move when I get to my new house. ;D

No. 2 right now.


Can't believe I've been overlooking SQ's (in general) for so long. And these just flood my heart with joy & awe.

Yes that too Que, but I reduced the space for all my CD'S with 65%, by putting them in space saving sleeves from Jazz Loft. So yes, the house is much bigger, but I need less space. Its a better and bigger listening room for me in this house.......

Well, whilst I was pottering around quietly minding my own business in the morning sunlight to the soaring, godlike, angelic music of Ligetis Requiem,  :o  the postman delivered this:






It all arrived from Columbus, Ohio.  Utterly brilliant.  Thank you Cato.  I must listen to Reger first, as he is a composer I have no idea about... :D
Dear James MacMillan
I have heard Isobel Gowdies confession, and I thought I would let you know it is very heartfelt, and she is very sorry she was baptized by the Devil in the Scottish Highlands.
Just sayin'...

So yes, the house is much bigger, but I need less space.
Or you need more cds! :)

Now listening to a perennial favorite - Vorisek and Arriaga Symphonies.

Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

The money will now go primarily in renovating the house, so my ordering will be as low as possible. That said I will have space enough for another 25 years in the new house, if I stick to the SSS.

That recording on Hyperion is also a favourite of mine. :)

Yesterday:

Mendelssohn
Pf Cto № 2 in d minor, Op.40
Eric Mazonson, pf
Rhode Island Philharmonic School Community Orchestra
John Eells

Dominick Argento
A Toccata of Galuppi
Dale Warland Singers
(I believe) & al.

 
Followers of Henningmusick may remember that Eric Mazonson played Gaze Transfixt and Lutosławski's Lullaby a few years back. So in comparison, the Mendelssohn was a cakewalk.  Well . . . not exactly: Mendelssohn wrote that concerto very busy for the soloist!  Quite the workout, and Eric acquitted himself very well.
 
My buddy Paul Cienniwa played me this recording of the Argento (and the first time I have ever heard a note of his music), as he had recently been involved in a local performance.
