I adore Pierre Jalbert's music and this is definitely on my must own list.  Highly seconded.
Thanks (to both) for posting, don't know of the composer but will likely go for this.

That release, from a few months ago, involved the performer commissioning a variety of solitude/aloneness themed solo works from composers all around the world, from elegiac reflections to a piece about finally getting to clean the house. Each composer contributes a written note and an image from lockdown in the booklet.

Continuation of the September info from the previous page...



Songs for "high tenor" (NOT countertenor)



For those curious given Norrington's age and health, the concerto recordings date from 2019.



"Start of the most comprehensive Bruckner Symphonies Edition incl. all available 19 versions."

I'll be astonished if the performer makes any (let alone significant) money from this recording. Would be very surprised if the label makes any money apart from their (presumed) upfront fee.

I note that the red lettering of that disc spells SOS.

Quite in the (di)spirit of the times… ::)

What very attractive and appealing artwork.

Whatever the merits of the actual recordings (and I’m not saying they’re bad), Warner’s design department have been at the top of their game with all of these composer box sets. They’re really impressive.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

André - LOL!  :laugh:  Actually, she had a couple of small moles on the right side on her cheek which I 'cleaned-up' w/ Pixelmator on my Apple laptop, just took a few seconds and made an improvement - NOW, how to you know her face so intimately?   ;) 8)  Dave

I couldn’t have known about her moles but at least she doesn’t look jaundiced any more  :D

It's probably been there forever, but I've only just found the breakdown of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra box. Very excited.

Me too. Genuinely excited to hear every single disc except the Mozart flute concertos, Tchaikovsky Rococo, and maybe that mysterious Classical Hits collection.

A reissue, but I wonder if this is some kind of deluxe edition or something:

I only brought this up because I wanted to say that I’m thrilled that CPO didn’t pick the worst overtures from Rossini. Now, that would've been disappointing. ::) ;D

But what if they'd gone for the middling/kind of okay overtures? Would you have been tempted?

The second volume will be The Worst Overtures and the third will be The Run-Of-The-Mill Overtures.

That would be Schubert's overtures. He's one of my top three composers and my heart cringes having to say that his operatic overtures are unbelievably dull and unmemorable.



They never released a second volume.

I get that. Strange how he could put mindbending and heartwrenching drama into a three minute Lied, and go on disastrously boring for hours in his "dramatic" works.
