My favorite approach to form is a polyphonic spiderweb in which lines evolve freely, but controled under some set of rules, and make the web to distort and change... also, sometimes some lines win over others and so on... of course, at the long scale, the composer should control the overall textute to produce the needed contrasts etc.

This is ah....somehow both very specific but also very vague in terms of how it links to form.........but I like this approach too. ;D

Today just found two very interesting Pablo LPs, and will give them a cleaning and spin (and conversion to FLAC) next month when I have time:

- Sarah Vaughan "I Love Brazil!"
- Oscar Peterson & Dizzy Gillsepie

I will be interested to hear your opinion of this one.  Received a bad review from a trusted source on Amazon.

Will do...

Hi Roasted,

Good to see you are still of the same opinion regarding Bostock! Are you only lurking around this forum or have you ventured elsewhere.

Kind regards,
Malx.

Thread comment last couple of buys have been boxed sets:



The Holmboe is, like most things Holmboe, excellent.

Suite concertante for violin and orchestra, H 276



The slow movement Meditation: Largo has a sense of mournfulness to it that makes me feel like Martinu is missing his family and friends back in Polička and Prague. Since this particular concerto was written in 1939 that seems it could very well be the case. Iíve been reading Martinuís letters to his friends and family and you can tell he misses home even though his life in Paris has been quite exciting.

For those interested, do check out this book:
