Drat! I forgot I have Ciocarlie too.  :o
Even I remembered you had Ciocarlie (and was surprised by your omitting that set from your list). There were quite a few posts about that box here on GMG some months ago (in which I did not participate, as I’m not in the market for more Schumann).

Good evening to you, Florestan.

Good evening, Rafael. As I said, I should focus on listening rather than acquiring.  :D

This is actually a sign that I should be listening to what I already have rather than keep adding new recordings to my library. I very much suspect that my current library is large enough to keep me busy for years to come.
This weekend I remembered an entire 50 CD "big box" I had forgotten about and pulled a bunch of discs out to revisit. Nice to be surprised like that  ;D

There’s an entire discussion somewhere about the preferences of amw and others (the Schumann composer thread?) because I happened to ask about it a couple of months ago.

Edit: found the conversation. https://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,80.msg1420678.html#msg1420678

Since then I’ve only listened to an album or two of the series I chose to try. Uhlig was one of them. So far so good. One of the distinguishing features is that Uhlig’s set is ultra complete, reflecting the numerous cases where Schumann revised works.

An oddly mixed programme from Hillary Hahn and Andrés Orozco-Estrada: the Dvořák and Ginastera Violin Concerti, and Sarasate’s Carmen-Fantasie.


Announced for October. It’ll be nice to have a new recording of Ginastera’s superb concerto.

Ooooooooo, Hahn in Ginastera.

I have the live Accardo recording from 1968.  The crowd goes wild at the end, it's reallly a barn burner of a performance.  There was also a live Ricci recording, but I recall the sonics and playing as being rather rough, and I didn't keep it.  And I also have the newish Andrew Wan recording.  Will have to give that a spin as I haven't formed an opinion of it yet.

Well get on it, and report please!  >:D
In seriousness, I don't have a recording of the Ginastera, and the couplings on Wan/Nagano interest me more than those on this Hahn CD. (Although the Sarasate counts as a guilty pleasure.)

Nice! Definitely interested to hear how she does in the Dvořák and Ginastera. My only complaint is why do all of these new classical releases especially on DG and Decca have to have some kind of title? What does Ginastera's VC have to do with an eclipse? Anyway...

Yes, my perception is that she made a cluster of recordings when she was very young and something of a prodigy, and this is the first recording I have noticed now that she is a mature performer. Perhaps I have just not been paying attention. I've never heard a recording from her that didn't make a very positive impression.

She took a couple years off as a new mom, but there are a few you missed. Last year's album was an odd mix too - Chausson, Prokofiev, and Rautavaara.

Wan and Nagano are excellent in the Ginastera.  Highly recommended.

Something good is going on in the Schumann. It’s a very fine recording on a piano with an excellent clear bass response and that reveals a lot of music in the lower register , well contrasted Florestan and Eusebius, impetuosity and reverie. This is a thing I will explore.
