Ha. Whereas as it (the Kodaly op.76) is my favourite. They are precisely why the first movement of op.76/1, in my memory, has some "spirito" to it. The LHQ is profoundly lacking in that quality.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Let's hope for more Hamelin and also the Schubert Lieder series which is seriously good.
Cheers

Quote from: JBS on September 19, 2023, 04:53:21 PMI rather liked LHQ. Chaconne a son gout and all that.

I texted Gurn that thanks to streaming I've finally had a chance to give LHQ a second chance (which Gurn encouraged me to do before).  I first listened to them when they first started.  I wasn't impressed then, but I am now.  I think that anyone that liked Mosaiques and wanted more in that style of playing would appreciate the London Haydn.

But the Festetics is still my go to PI set and I can't see myself buying another.  I do appreciate LHQ and will sometimes listen to them now though.

As someone who emphatically likes Mosaiques, allow me to emphatically disagree with your conclusion.

Also add Mr Hurwitz to this list. He loves the Mosaiques and hates the LHQ.

Quote from: Brian on September 17, 2023, 10:28:43 PMCurious if you have any favorite new/recent labels that show that kind of curation and potential staying power.

I don't know how new/recent they are, but the mysterious cluster of labels under "OutThere" seems vital. Astree, Arcana, Fuga Libra, Analekta, Alpha. Then there's Artalinna, Avie, Dacapo, Tacet, Hanssler profil.

Isn't Dacapo to Denmark what, for example, Ondine is to Finland, Supraphon is to Czechia, Hungaroton is to Hungary, etc?

Yes, Dacapo is a long-standing Danish label, not part of the OutThere set that seems to take advantage of French law to spin up small labels and then stop them when momentum runs out.

Dacapo itself has been going through some changes recently that I personally find disappointing. Physical media is not being released for many new recordings. There may also have been a cultural shift within the label that deprioritizes filling in gaps in major 20th-century composers like Nørgård and Sørensen in favour of younger (or much older) voices.

If you are interested in listening to orchestrations of solo/chamber music, you might be interested in this thread.
Also looking for recommendations on neglected conductors thread.

I think these are the first ones in 35+ years. It's a new launch.

I have that Ibragimova album, though I purchased on iTunes. ;)

I like it.

In the words of the song.....

You might need it some rainy day
Dreams can come true again
When everything old is new again"

The other day I was looking at a gold chalice made in 1152. And a Roman plaque from 305, though that was looking a little worn. Vinyl going in and out of style is a mere blip.

I am amazed that the Pantheon still has the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome after nearly 2,000 years :o .
