Quote from: Leon on June 29, 2011, 08:27:13 AMThis composer may be a bit early for our corner, but as is described in Wikipedia, "While Van Maldere's chamber music shows late-baroque characteristics and Corelli's influence, his violinsonatas and symphonies testify to the formation of the early classical 'Viennese' symphony. Most of the symphonies are in three parts, and contain elements as thematic contrast or modulating development. "Maldere, Pierre van: Sinfonias (Academy of Ancient Music, Bral)These works are very worthwhile and the performances on PI are very well realized.This composer may not be new to others, but was a new find for me, and a very happy one at that.

Quote from: SonicMan46 on July 04, 2011, 09:13:59 AMDanzi, Franz (1763-1826) - Symphonies w/ Howard Griffiths & the Orch della Svizzera Italiana - 2 CD set (in a single sized jewel box) - A different look at Danzi for me, i.e. some of his orchestral output - in addition to this new acquisition, I have about 8 discs of this composer's works, but all chamber compositions (half being his wonderful Wind Quintets) - there are plenty of posts in this thread on this aspect of his composing (and a dedicated thread on the composer but w/ few posts).These 2 discs contain 6 symphonies (P 218-223 - P refers to Volkmar von Pechstaedt who cataloged Danzi's works) - the liner notes are quite good and extensive (12 pages in English plus other languages); these orchestral pieces were composed in groups of two starting w/ 1790 (or earlier), 1804 (in print), and 1818 (in print); so in that wonderful 'transitional period' between the classical and romantic eras.For me these look more back into the classical period; each work varies in length from just over 16 mins to 23+ mins. As expected, the wind writing makes these performances especially fun. Griffiths appears to have enjoyed conducting these performances, and the recorded sound from CPO is excellent. Attached is a reviewed from the Am Record Guide (May-June 2011 issue) for those interested!

Quote from: Gurnatron5500 on July 15, 2011, 10:19:39 AMHmm, muy interesante.
Quote from: toñito on July 15, 2011, 10:32:59 AMYes, DHM has announced three of those 10-CD sets: Freiburger Barockorchester, Cantus Cölln and Collegium Aureum, all of them formidable Baroque ensembles. Additionally, these sets cover a quite specialized repertoire and the entrance price is really attractive (EUR 18 at JPC).
Quote from: chasmaniac on July 18, 2011, 06:28:30 AMThe 2 discs of Carl's duos are fabulous.
