I don't typically search DGs digital only releases, but it looks like DG has started recording young local artist Elisabeth Brauß.  There's also a Brahms release.  A good sign.

There's also a release from a more seasoned performer:

People would rather believe than know - E.O. Wilson

Not to mention Telarc.

I didn't know that Walter had written a string quartet.
Part of the tragedy of the Palestinians is that they have essentially no international support for a good reason: they've no wealth, they've no power, so they've no rights.

I quite liked his Symphony and am looking forward to hearing his chamber music.

O.M.G.  Two discs.  Played on a 1905 Pleyel.  I'm calling a 2023 purchase of the year already.

















Vinyl.  In case you want to pay a premium for a twenty year old recording.

Also, no image yet, but the complete recordings of the Fitzwilliam Quartet is in the hopper.

Clavichord is all the rage at the mo. Even John Tilbury has bought one and he is planning some more releases with it  - not Bach though. Skempton.

The Spohr clarinet concertos piques my interest, but I already own the sets w/ Michael Collins on Hyperion and Karl Leister on Orfeo (he plays a 'German' clarinet), both MI versions - anyone aware of performances on PIs?  Dave :)

I have to say I am a little disappointed - while the organ sounds very well in this sort of music and Leon Berben makes interesting sounds with it, his playing comes off a little fussy and drags a bit imo. But it is something that I can see myself growing to like.

This arrived to me at last. I'm also a bit disappointed for the same reasons as you, and I would add that I think this music should be played a little more straightforward. Berben seems to be so occupied with the details that the great lines are drowned in details, as if he can't see the wood for the trees. Also I find his registrations interesting but a bit overthought and not allways well suited to the music. He may be an acquired taste, I'm not sure.

I reacted like this to the Bull and grew to like it, and in fact I sense the same mindset in the Titelouze as the thinking which guided his Bull. There's something about what he does which makes the music sound particularly interesting contrapuntally.

I'm not totally convinced I like the organ, but I may come round.

Some interesting-looking stuff from Sterling:

Wow, for sure. I will buy the FFG double album immediately.

I see quite a lot of Shostakovich, which I already have.

If I count it correctly, 8 CDs of DSCH, half of the box.
I have their cycle already, like you. But I have to admit it's my least favorite DSCH cycle: never clicked with me.

But a lot of people seem to like it so this may be a good way to get it if you don't have it.

Quote from: Florestan on December 04, 2022, 01:25:45 AMShouldn't it be Four-Hand instead of Four-Hands?


"Piano Four-Hands" is a general term for these sorts of pieces. I honestly don't know what you should do if you try to add the word "Sonatas" at the end!

That's precisely why I asked. Four-Hands Sonatas is not quite correct, is it?

Well it depends. If you regard "Piano Four-Hands" as a kind of instrument, then it's right. If you want Four-Hand, then arguably it would be Four-Hand piano sonatas.
