Looking forward a lot! Just got Lezhneva's Graun CD and it's pretty cool indeed.

Debating with myself if I should attend this ... have a full schedule already (jazz concerts on 4th and 6th and possibly on 5th of May) and am not really into "Lobgesang" much (the Scottish and the Italian, yes), but ...

Great Recordings and Reviews / Re: New Releases

Something I noticed on jpc:



A 22CD set: https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/classic/detail/-/art/georg-friedrich-haendel-christopher-hogwood-haendel-recordings/hnum/6822324
I wonder if op.6 is missing or if they forgot to list it (it is still a favorite of mine, striking a good balance between several aspects although his op.3 is probably more competitive, especially because of the completion of the 6th concerto instead of the usual unrelated movements that Walsh coupled together). What I have heard of the other orchestral music has IMO been superseded by other recordings, there are just too many good fire/water and while this is not true of the concerti a due cori I was not impressed by Hogwood's recording (in another cheap Decca box otherwise dominated by Marriner recordings).
Needless to say, I have most of what I am interested in already. The only somewhat rare thing might be the Mozart arrangement of Acis. The four oratorios were already in another cheap box 10 or so years ago (I have that one).

Delightful cd.  These melodies contain La Fontaine fables put into music.  The velvet voice of Tassis Chritoyannos is wonderful in this repertoire.  His perfect diction and his sense of nuances match the texts perfectly.  In this election period, I cant help quoting Le corbeau et le renard

Mon bon monsieur, sachez que tout flatteur vis au dépend de celui qui l'écoute



Next I will look for some excerpts of his opera Jocelyn, if they exist.
Wishlisted!

Presidents and political leaders are supposed to do what is best for the country and it's people. Chaos and uncertainty are not.  :-\
Well, it may end up being good for the US if the deal is kept but improved.

Morning listening is this set that arrived yesterday from Amazon UK:



Which was excellent timing since today is a national holiday here - King's Day.
And being in the service of His Majesty's government, I have the day off.
Plenty of time to listen to some wonderfull music.... :D

I am not in his government, but still I have the day off :laugh:

I have been looking at Lotter & the Hofkappelle Munchen's set:



A Que favorite!

Indeed... :) And it holds up after repeated listening.

It was Gordo's recommendation that lead me to it BTW.
