Thanks. That is an interesting release, but a little too subtle for me. In the Cantor vein, someone should (maybe it's already happened?) compose a piece referencing Gödel's incompleteness theorems (whose proofs utilize a Cantor diagonalization process)!

It did motivate me to take a deeper look at the Another Timbre catalog, beyond the "name" (Cage, Feldman) composers.
Just to start with, John Lely's The Harmonics of Real Strings, Richard Glover's Logical Harmonies, Catherine Lamb's three bodies (moving) [a physics nerd title!], Evans-Weiler/Pisaro Lines and Tracings and  Illogical Harmonies' Volume all got my attention.

A lot to explore in that catalog, online for the moment as I'm not sure whether the recordings would have enough "staying power" to purchase after my recent Cage Number Pieces binge.

Try Cassandra Miller - Warblewalk especially but maybe also the Duet for Cello and Orchestra.

The concept of duo seems to be big at the moment - I blame Christian Wolff.

Thanks, I listened to some AT streams and concur on Miller! Duet for VC + Orch. is impressive. The only string quartet streamable excerpt was About Bach, which I also enjoyed.
I noticed Catherine Lamb has another physics nerd title, Point/Wave for (classical, thankfully) guitar + electronics. I rather liked it, definitely subtle but not to the extent of Beuger's Cantor Quartets. I'm a sucker for those geeky themes.  :laugh:

IMHO Forgotten records is doing a great work with French Music of last century.

Excellent! Great to see more Damase being released on disc. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

Initial skimming suggests that there are some attractive renditions of familiar music by Frescobaldi, Mayone and other people of a similar ilk. Very nicely recorded. The style is often more inward looking than flashy. Lovely lovely ricercar by Mayone.

I liked the first release of Braga Santos' chamber music on Toccata, so I'll be expecting this as well:

This looks like it is already out in Europe, but not available in the US until August:

BIS should just release all the volumes right now.





I dig both artists.  Do I need such a recording, though?  Probably.

Heads-up my fellow Respighians:



I need another Roman Trilogy like I need a hole in my head, but I’ll probably end up buying this.

I already have a bunch of holes in my head with my mouth, nostrils, and ears which all serve me well so why not another?  The Roman Trilogy is so much fun, I'm always up for a new release in stunning high fidelity.

How do you like the BIS SACD? I remember playing that one for my parents and in the slow birdsong movement of "Pines," they said to turn the volume up because they couldn't hear...then the final march started and the windows rattled  ;D

That’s the spirit! :P I’m with you. These Respighi works are fun, indeed.

Yes, the dynamic range on that particular recording is rather wide. Neschling’s isn’t my favorite Roman Trilogy, but it certainly isn’t ‘bad’ or anything.

The same team who performed the Korngold's Symphony in a fierce rendition, so this must be very exciting too.
