Quote from: Brian on December 19, 2022, 06:07:36 PMDoes anybody know what happened to the Ansermet Decca Big Box? "The Stereo Years," was supposed to come out in May 2022 but appears to have never made it to market. I wonder if there were technical/logistical difficulties.
Quote from: Todd on December 19, 2022, 06:20:53 PMAmazon France shows a February 3, 2023 release.
Presto Music now says the Ansermet Stereo Big Box is coming on April 28. So it will be a whole year late!

Also saw this on Presto Classical:

Fantasie: Seven Composers, Seven Keyboards
Alexander Melnikov
Harmonia Mundi
April 28, 2023

No word yet on the composers or keyboards.

This keeps up, it may overtake the new Sony Complete Casals Edition, which has been promised and had delivery dates moved for what, five or ten years.

Quote from: jimsumner on January 24, 2023, 03:05:39 PMThank you for the verse of reason. Most pictures of George Harrison show him smoking. Way  cool. Until he died of lung cancer. The last thing I expected to see on this board was a glamorization of injesting an addictive carcinogen.

And yes, I have lost loved ones to smoking-induced lung cancer.
Quote from: Madiel on January 24, 2023, 01:03:33 AMNo, because enough people these days are aware of the minor detail of how inhaling burning tobacco tends to kill you.
You don't inhale when you smoke a pipe. This is off-topic. Way off. Pipe smoking may not be healthy but let's leave the topic at least from a factual basis. Pipe smoking doesn't cause lung cancer. It may increase risk of other types of cancer depending on certain factors. Sorry for going off topic. There are many risks in life.

It does cause lung cancer. Here's some facts for you. https://academic.oup.com/jnci/article/96/11/853/2520796?login=false

As to the point that you don't inhale, think about what the point of the exercise is. The nicotine has to get into your system somehow for there to be any effect. The technique is different, yes, but the aim of the exercise is for a drug to get into your body.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

The Kvandal piqued my curiosity.

My father smoked a pipe. Too late he was diagnosed with Emphysema. I doubt there is a worse way to die, fighting for every breath with the thought that the next will be the last. The only good thing to come from it was seeing the suffering of my father I stopped smoking myself.

Can't remember if this was posted before.





Here's something you don't see every day.







I hope that one day Beethoven's music is recorded frequently enough.

Seems really nice actually -- calm and expressive and full of a sense that he cares about this music.

Quelle horreur! Cello played with the same vibe as gypsy violin -- piano like it's Liszt or something. Yuck!

Clearly essential listening for me. First track sounds wonderful and the booklet essay looks fun.

May be worth a shot.

Inspired by the visit of the King of the Romans to the palace of Henry IV on The Thames in Greenwich, sounds cool.

A Chopin potpourri inspired by the pianist's encounter with a rather big 1905 Pleyel, includes op 58.




Another Chopin potpourri including op 58. The pianist says some intelligent things about the sonata in the booklet.

More LATE MARCH RELEASES





"The composer Constantin Regamey, born in Kiev in 1907, is little known. A Swiss of Polish descent, he was also a pianist, music critic and writer, who was appointed lecturer in Indian philology at Warsaw University in 1936. He joined the Polish Resistance in 1942 and it was at this time that he wrote his Quintet for clarinet, bassoon, violin, cello and piano."





Mozart No. 19 / K. 465 / "Dissonance"
Tchaikovsky No. 1
Soo Yeon Lyuh (b. 1980) "Yessori (Sound from the Past)"

This is a 9-minute work originally written for the Kronos Quartet. Despite being all-Korean, the quartet here is based in Germany, where they have studied with members of the Artemis and Kuss Quartets.

MORE FOR MARCH



This Sinbad piece is somehow fully 80 minutes long, for solo guitar. It's divided into 21 tracks depicting all of his adventures.



This oddity is 9 of the original collection of orchestral Wunderhorn songs (minus "Verlor'ne Müh," "Trost im Unglück," "Wer hat dies Liedlein erdacht?"), plus "Der Tamboursg'sell," Blumine, and the scherzo from Symphony No. 1, arranged for baritone, two oboes (one doubling English horn), two clarinets, two bassoons, French horn, double bass, and field drum.

First glimpse of predicted perfection.  I will be preordering this one.
