Quote from: The Mad Hatter on May 24, 2007, 12:21:35 PMReally? Darn.Any reccomendations for best organ recording, then?
Quote from: Que on May 24, 2007, 10:34:47 PMHope a recommendation on harpsichord is OK too? My absolute favourite: Robert Hill.Q
QuoteP.S. I'm not in the know on this, but word has it that on the piano Koroliov's interpretation is the one to go for. But you'd better consult Don on this matter!
Quote from: Don on May 25, 2007, 02:18:46 AMOn piano, my favored versions come from Koroliov, Nikolayeva, Sokolov and Rosen. Just as fine is Gould's recording where he plays both piano and organ.
Quote from: The Mad Hatter on May 27, 2007, 05:07:35 AMYeah, but he doesn't play all of it. Plus there's that stop where Bach went and died - I'd actually really like to hear a complete version, even if it's not all his. If you'll forgive my desire for a cadence.
Quote from: Don on May 27, 2007, 09:24:20 AMYes, he died without completing the work. I can live with that, and I don't need someone else completing it.
Quote from: The Mad Hatter on May 27, 2007, 04:30:56 PMI don't 'need' it either, but I do think it's very interesting to hear the 'might-have-beens', especially if they do give the piece a real sense of wholeness.I hope you can forgive that.
Quote from: masolino on May 24, 2007, 11:39:59 PMThe interpretation is not terribly dynamic to me
Quote from: Josquin des Prez on September 24, 2007, 09:10:49 PMKoroliov's Art of Fugue was Ligeti's desert Island disc. You can't get a higher pedegree than that. Repent, now.
Quote from: Josquin des Prez on May 27, 2007, 06:28:41 PMI also have a cool string quartet version by Keller,
Quote from: Que on May 24, 2007, 10:34:47 PMMy absolute favourite: Robert Hill.
Quote from: masolino on September 24, 2007, 09:46:45 PMYes but Art of Fugue wasn't even composed by Ligeti
Quote from: DavidW on September 25, 2007, 03:07:12 AMI really tried to get into the Keller Quartet recording, but I think it just sounds dull to me. Maybe I just really like it to be played on keyboard.
Quote from: TheJoe on September 24, 2007, 09:04:50 PMWhat is with the extra few bars at the end of the unfinished fugue on the Sokolov recording? I don't see those in any score of mine, and it sure isn't a completion since it still doesn't end on a cadence... (Sorry to dig up a dead thread, but I didn't want to start a new one just for this question.)
