Back to what jlopes posted - there are a couple more BIS releases coming that I found info on, and some Naxos stuff:







Some great-looking stuff there!

I’m more open-minded about stuff like this this these days. I like when the piano plays the bass over the other parts. Then there’s a strange clarity in that part of the counterpoint. It’s interesting at least.

Looks like a great program, but why does every album that is released now have to have some kind of stupid title? What can't this be titled Bartók/Ligeti/Dutilleux String Quartets? Is that too simplistic? Too generic? It's better than Not All Cats Are Grey. That's for damn sure!

How the heck is a John Williams Boston Pops box coming out before an Arthur Fiedler Boston Pops box?

Maybe because John Williams sells?

3 pieces on the disc, Métamorphoses nocturnes, Ainsi la nuit and Bartók's completely un-nocturnal 2nd quartet.  Hence... but I'm sure you'd worked it out anyway.  God help us :'(

And he does very much.

Maybe there's a hidden bonus track of Ligeti's lost 3rd string quartet titled Not All Cats Are Grey?

The saying in question ("All cats are grey in the dark") has always bothered me because whoever came up with it has clearly never seen a cat in the dark. You can still pretty easily tell what colour they are. I know it's supposed to be a metaphor, but I've never metaphor that I've liked.

Oh, the version my college roommate used was "all cats look the same in the dark." Your version makes much more sense.
Edit: and googling I see "your" version goes back to the 1500s, wow.

Now, the specific use to which he put the metaphor, that was something I had never liked!

Or maybe it's just a dumb title.

Keiko Shichijo fp, Cecilia Bernardini vn, Marcus van den Munckhof vc. This recording uses a c.1825 Böhm piano and the uncut version of the Schubert with exposition repeat in the finale.

I obviously am not going to be able to resist a pairing of my two favourite piano trios.

I thought the expression was la nuit tous les chats sont gris. I’ve never heard it in English in fact, maybe British people don’t say it.

That HIP trio disc really really caught my eye for all the reasons you mention.

Quite similar. Are Norwegian and Danish mutually intelligible?
