Calvary





An excellent film which also incorporates some of the wonderful landscapes of the north west coast of Ireland.

Haven't seen that one, but have consistently heard very good things about it.

Now I realise I shoulda voted more for Schoenberg

Wow! Seeing this pop up on my Unread list made me do a double take. Yes this was a ton of fun, and I still have around 20 Bruckner 6th recordings lying around to constantly remind me it.  ;D


This was so much fun. This was the summer I fell in love with Bruckner's 6th.  Yay!
Good memories!

Anyways, I came across a comparative article on MusicWeb that Bruckner 6 maniacs may take interest in.

Bruckner 6 ad below....  >:D




Thanks for posting the article! Contained recordings I've never heard, and more importantly not in the Blind Comparison, perhaps we need to revisit it with new contenders?  ;)

Composer Discussion / Re: Bruckner's Abbey

Sure:

Super-no-nonsense performances. 4th 7th and 9th particularly worth hearing. Sound good mono. Sometimes a little slow for how little happens.

Thank you very much. Unfortunately I'm not a subscriber so can't access that particular review. However, I did just find one on Musicweb which was generally positive, although less impressed by symphonies 8 and 9 (my two favourites). Still, I may still be unable to resist this temptation. Apparently Rosbaud was too ill to record Symphony 1.

What can I say, Toch had not touched me.

Untouched by Toch! Alas!

I see that there's a comparatively inexpensive set of Hans Rosbaud conducting symphonies 2-9.
Any views on Rosbaud's performances?


I seem to recall having a rather good LP of him conducting Symphony 7 on Vox/Turnabout in my youth.

Sure:

There's said review of Rosbaud.
