Now:



Petrucciani made this album when he was 18 yrs. old. The music on this album doesn’t sound like it came from a teenager. It sounds like he’s been playing for 30 years. Quite an accomplishment indeed.

I listened to the Mácal. The performers seemed to hold back for most of the piece, which is not the worst thing since they do step it up somewhat for the coda. But I agree with you on the brass (I have a high tolerance for ugly tone but not much tolerance for off or wobbly intonation) and the soloist. I liked the Kijé more than you did but not enough to keep the disc.

I have sampled several Fields of the Dead on spotify, including your suggestions except for Stokowski. The soprano I liked best was Avdeeva on Svetlanov’s earlier Melodiya recording, which apparently never made it to CD. :(

You mean this one?




EDIT: I thought I had all but one in my collection, but I don't have this one. So I just ordered it. I'll let you know what I think when I get it.  I also ordered the new Kitajenko last week (which strikes me as sounding gorgeous, but more laid back in the clips). So I am just missing the Rodzinsky in the cantata.

Splendid.

Nothing says quality classical piano music quite like "Monster Dog".
