Quote from: Madiel on December 04, 2022, 02:50:46 AM"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!
Quote from: Florestan on December 04, 2022, 04:35:22 AMThat's precisely why I asked. Four-Hands Sonatas is not quite correct, is it?
Quote from: Madiel on December 04, 2022, 05:23:51 AMWell 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.
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on December 04, 2022, 07:44:16 AMFWIW, I would have said four-hand sonatas.

Quote from: Todd on December 08, 2022, 06:45:07 AMIntriguing.
Quote from: premont on December 03, 2022, 08:39:06 AMAlso 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.
Quote from: Mandryka on December 03, 2022, 09:14:18 AMI 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.
Quote from: bioluminescentsquid on December 08, 2022, 11:23:12 PMI actually like Berben's registrations a lot, I consider them a redeeming factor of this recording. Much more adventurous than any other Titelouze recording, he probably also took a lot of inspiration in registration instructions provided by Mersenne (which have some really weird registrations, like using 3' 2' flutes as a solo voice - Berben does this in verse II of Exultet caelum).
Quote from: premont on December 09, 2022, 04:53:06 AMDo we have any indication that Titelouze approved of Mersenne's theoretical ideas? And whatever the answer is, I don't like Berben's registrations. I think he underplays the majestic nature of this music.
