By chance I listened to his vol.1 yesterday. I find him a bit solid and ascetic. But of course the completist in me shall acquire vol.2 too.

Well, I shall listen to it on streaming. The fact that he's releasing a second set suggests he's  pretty keen on the music and believe he has something worth saying.  (Listened with great pleasure to some of Aymes's Froberger this morning.)

Froberger has clearly been rediscovered!  :)

Good news and particularly his harpsichord music is well deserving.

I hope we'll see a similar development on Graupner.

Get ready for JUNE RELEASES

Good month for Nicolas Altstaedt, for sure.



Bebbington's first Poulenc CD was really good.

More in next post!

MORE STUFF IN JUNE



Cool program



"When composing my own Divertimento for chamber orchestra (2017), I couldn’t help but consider the multiple meanings packed into the title. Like Ibert, I delight in connections to other music and in mixing styles in ways that might surprise. Like Bernard, I was attracted to the divertimento as a more modest form for a smaller orchestra. And yet, as the music developed, it stretched against those boundaries time and time again. Like Bartók, I may also have taken refuge in composing a work of abstract, light-hearted music at a time when the world seems teetering on the brink of disaster." - Michael Ippolito





10 SACD box set. Many individual releases have been very highly praised, although this cycle is not talked about very much here on GMG.

I have a few of the Wigglesworth Shostakovich symphony recordings (including 4,11 and 13) and thought them all excellent. Looks like a great set.

Agreed. For someone like me who tends not to really go for mixed programs, I look at this and think ooh, I'm a bit interested.

I have his 1st, 6th, 8th (recent acquisition), 10th, 11th, 15th, and always have liked them a lot.  He favours broad tempi, in complete contrast with one of my other favourites, Caetani.  The recordings however have more dynamic range than is really comfortable for me - can't listen without riding the volume the whole time.

This does look like an enchanting program.

Must be original jackets if a single Beethoven quartet is on a CD all by its lonely self.

In fact it's 2 Ludwigs and a Johannes with their own CDs. I would guess the recordings on CD 1 were originally issued as 78s.

Sorry, can't remember, but it was just about the top thing on Amazon.de when I checked "next 90 days" or whatever their future release filter is.

Released at the end of last year I think, but if so, I missed it.

Very lyrical, fluid, sweet, in the mass. The balance of the ensemble in the recording is good in the mass, without the bass Philippe Roche dominating - the sound is better than live when I heard them do this mass.  It’s two on a part pretty well all the time I think.

Guerber talks in the booklet about how the music has “un humanism touchant et raffiné” and that’s spot on.

Another one from 2020 possibly which I'd either missed or overlooked. It is fabulous. Binchois and Ockeghem songs, voices and viols. Comet Musicke appear to be a lively bunch of people

Listening again on better speakers, this was (obviously) wrong, there’s plenty of relief within the ordinary and all the more so if you listen to the propers of course.

As far as I know there are two other recordings  of the mass - Dominique Vellard with Schola Cantorum Basilensis and Cantica Symphonia. I’ll try to explore what they’re all up to interpretively later. From memory the Cantica Symphonia performance is an amazing thing.

The Clemencic Consort did it on Harmonia Mundi. I have the LP and seem to remember that once upon a time it was on CD.
