More AUGUST RELEASES

The extraordinary choir Accentus has signed with Alpha.



Bonus: the Truls Mork album with Debussy, Bridge, and Britten sonatas ALSO has Janacek's Fairy Tale.
The Vieuxtemps is all world premiere recordings of previously unpublished works, so if you like the composer, you will need it.





After Adam Fischer's Beethoven cycle, I think we are all used to his newfound mega-eccentricity. So here are the track timings for his Brahms:

Symphony No. 1
14:53
7:47
4:17
16:34

Symphony No. 2
18:13
8:16
4:47
8:34

Symphony No. 3
12:39
8:03
5:39
8:02

Symphony No. 4
10:41
8:47 (!!)
5:39
9:06

The booklet interview with Adam Fischer is also interesting and unexpected. He is asked about being the only conductor to have recorded all the Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, AND Mahler symphonies, and replies that he's actually doing Haydn AGAIN:

"We now plan to record Haydn’s last 24 symphonies over a period of four years, basically from live concerts. Only Antal Doráti, yet another Hungarian, recorded all the Haydn symphonies (on Decca) before me, and now I am alone on the market with the complete symphonies. But that will change soon, 2032 is Haydn’s 300th birthday, that will surely initiate a lot of new recordings!"

Two notes on that:
1. Does he not know about Antonini's ongoing 2032 project?
2. His explanation for re-recording Haydn is: " I realise now that we should rely much more on our imagination. In his own time, Haydn was a kind of “popstar”, his humour and jokes were understood immediately, whereas now we must bring them to life anew. Maybe I was too frightened or cautious then, too concerned with the notes. I must work and think as a stage director, recreate life, not just interpret music."

I'm happy to hear that Fischer will rerecord the last 24 symphonies.  I feel that was the weak spot in his cycle.

He seems to have forgotten Marzendorfer and Davies as well.
I can think of three reasons why he didn't mention Antonini:
--Because A. is using more than one orchestra, and he didn't.
--Because A. Is PI and he isn't.
--As a marketing ploy.

Which is a very glaring omission since it is only one of only two sets currently still in print (and the second isn't Fischer! it is Naxos).

Fischer is still in print, albeit as part of a much larger set.

Evidently he shares your sentiment. I think it’s a widely held view that the cycle got much better with later recordings.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Wow I can't believe I forgot it was part of the Haydn Edition.  Did they ever do a part 2?  Unlike the Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, the Haydn edition is hardly complete.

Not known yet, I fear.
There could be a few surprises and possibly some Dutch composers.

Some interesting Stravinsky releases coming out:



Have you heard Jurowski's earlier release with the LPO with Orpheus, Petrushka, and Symphonies for Wind Instruments, if so what did you think?

Quote
The self-proclaimed rats of the early music world make a case for Josquin Baston, a Flemish polyphonist who made a career at Danish, Swedish, German and Austrian courts. In addition to instrumental works, motets and chansons, the musicians will perform polyphonic Dutch songs by this unknown master. If you prick up your ears you will immediately understand why the ensemble has recently also devoted a recording to the astonishing Baston.´

Unfortunately, I haven't. I've read some mixed reviews about it, but I should get it since Orpheus has become one of those Stravinsky works that hardly gets recorded, but this could be said of many of his more obscure works.

Well, I have the 9 volumes on Brilliant of his KB Sonatas (fortepiano) w/ 9 different performers - will be interesting to see if a V. 2 is released of the above?  Dave :)
