Yes! :) So far I listened to Symphony No.2, No.4, No.6, No.7 and No.9, those works are absolutely gorgeous!
Thank you, haha :)
Now:
Bauern-Polka op.276



I have suddenly become a huge fan of Kleiber.  I hope you are enjoying that disc.  He pulls the music out of thin air...or thick air even.   :D
Dear Prokofiev
You composed "The Year 1941".  Too bad you can't compose anything about this year.
Toodle pip Sergei!
Kind regards,
Scots John

Glad you enjoyed those Simpson symphonies, Ilaria!! I have heard 4, 7 and 8 works, such amazing works!

Hope you enjoyed your Strauss! ;)

On the finale of the Schumann now - and enjoying as much as expected! :)

Thank you, Strauss is always amazing! ;D
Robert Simpson is the latest composer I discovered, along with Rautavaara, and his music sounds very beautiful and hauting, I would really like to listen to the whole symphonies set.

I have suddenly become a huge fan of Kleiber.  I hope you are enjoying that disc.  He pulls the music out of thin air...or thick air even.   :D

So glad you like Kleiber, John :) Of course I'm enjoying the disc, I've been a great admirer of him since I listened to the recording of the Neujahrskonzert 1989.
What do you mean, suddenly? ;)

Now:



hmmm... Interesting way to end an otherwise quiet evening, with the 'War Dance' on repeat as expected! Maybe I'll go and listen to my violin sonata to calm me down a little! ;) Not long now until Scarlet and I start playing it together! :)
Good night all! :)

This excellent recording of the motets:



It includes the usual six motets and - as another recordings - also a seventh motet catalogued as BWV Anh 159, formerly considered spurious, but currently respected as an early original work by JS Bach.

The singing (by the Vocalconsort Berlin - 18 singers: 6S- 4A - 4T - 4B) is perfect and pure enjoyment and very German, accompanied by a discrete continuo.

Highly recommendable.

Also listening to Schumann 4 but the Sawalisch - I can imagine this winning the 'Blind Comparison' competition.



Looking forward to taking part in and finding out the results of the final round! (which has already prompted me to heavily consider buying the Levine Schumann set!)

Ah that would be too bad, I love the sound of the Dresden. :)

I haven't even started the listening yet for the final round! :D

Like a lush Napa Valley Cab.  Wonderful recording.  Would not make it the only one on the shelf, but it should be amongst the pickings.

Probably my single favorite Shostakovich disc right there.
