This piece by Catherine Lamb is quite slow paced but really engaging at the same time.

From her website it says:

Quote
She studied (experimental) composition at the California Institute of the Arts (2004-2006) under James Tenney and Michael Pisaro, who were both integral influences. It was there also that she began her work into the area of Just Intonation, which became a clear way to investigate the interaction of tones and ever-fluctuating shades, where these interactions in and of them-selves became structural elements in her work.

which is probably just a bit of background info about her interest in using microtones in this way.

This is worth a listen. Takeshika gets the most out of his Silbermann fortepiano by way attentive rubato/articulation. Seems this chap never studied with anyone of note. He's kind of a mystery.
I'm just going to bump this. It's not a go-to recording. It's one for a rainy day. I'm bumping it hoping someone out there might acquire it and give me their opinion. I think this is one of the only fortepiano versions out there and I think it's very good. He doesn't play it safe vis a vis agogics. He's very inventive, never phoning it in. Sometimes the instrument seems like a bit of a struggle but it's part of the fun of this one.

I have very limited experience with this opera, but I found this set excellent.

Bruckner Symphony No. 1 (Linz) - Venzago/Tapiola Sinfonietta



Bruckner with a 41-piece orchestra is kind of fascinating, but not an experience I'm eager to repeat.

OTOH, I’ve never met anyone who has read the whole of Finnegans Wake. I didn’t make it much beyond  “Riverrun, past Eve’s and Adam’s...”  ;D

Because it begins with the ending, and ends with the beginning?  :D

Hendrik Andriessen Symphony No. 3

Again, a first listen which leaves me satisfied but not sure if I should actually recommend it to others.


The first work ,Talitha Kumi, is a late Romantic oratorio, 34 minutes long. If you like late Romantic choro-orchestral stuff, you'll probably like it. If you don't, you probably won't. To my ear there was little echo of W-F's later work, but substantive enough to be heard on its own merits.
La Passione is under three minutes, and more or less slipped by me.
Otto cori is a cycle of a capella choral songs that everyone would probably like.
Biggest fault of the CD is its brevity, at 52 minutes.

Russian Troll Farm?

I assume anothername replied to the wrong post. There was discussion about " fab alien" just before MI commented about me. Alien did frequently change his nick.
