Just listened again to my BIS CD of the Koch symphonies etc having read Andre's post (how do I do the French accent over the 'e'?  ???). It is a terrific CD and I especially like the powerfully redemptive ending of 'Sinfonia Seria'. I need to explore more of Koch's music.

I've been meaning to listen to that BIS CD for quite some time now - must give it a spin. If those symphonies are anywhere near as good as the Impulsi Trilogy, I must hear them!

Humoresques for Violin and Orchestra, op. 87 & op. 89

Dong-Suk Kang, Neeme Jarvi, Gothenburg SO

They're all great, but op. 89 No. 3 is the best of the lot.  :)
Eduard Tubin (1905 - 1982)

Prélude solennel (1940)
Suite on Estonian Dances for violin and orchestra (1974)
Concerto for violin and orchestra (1941/42)

Mark Lubotsky, violin
Neeme Järvi, conductor
Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra

It’s been quite some time since I’ve heard anything from this particular disc from the Tubin Järvi series on BIS. There’s some gorgeous music here for sure.

I listened to this last night; knew about it months ago and was waiting for it to appear.  I knew she had felt that the songs on the original album didn't get the production or attention she thought they deserved.  This one is sure stronger, but still, I want to hear new songs from this writer.
Maybe he really could shoot someone on the street and continue on.
