An attractive piano, I’m just not interested enough in the music to say more than that!

More Brahms on period instruments—IIRC the third attempt at the solo works after Hardy Rittner and Piet Kuijken.

Nikolai Tcherepnin's ballet Narcissus and Echo and the tone-poem The Faraway Princess are being released after Christmas (?) in January.



It would be nice if other things by Nikolai Tcherepnin, which have never been recorded, follow soon!

With some difficulty I found a page with more information:

https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/cpo/detail/-/art/nicolai-tscherepnin-narcisse-et-echo-op-40/hnum/8977574

A German reviewer (apparently given a copy to write a review, since the release date is January 3, 2020) from the above website has given it a 5-star review:

Quote



Große Klasse!
Diese Komposition ist nur - wenn überhaupt - mit Ravels "Daphnis et Chloe" vergleichbar: die oft ähnlich impressionistisch flirrende Klangsprache, der Rausch an Klangfarben und Effeklten, verstärkt durch einen - wie bei Ravel - vokalisierenden Chor.
Bislang gab es nur eine Aufnahme im Katalog: eine sehr eindrucksvolle Chandos-Aufnahme mit Rozhdestvensky aus dem Jahr 1998. Nun hat cpo nicht für Ersatz, sondern für Konkurrenz gesorgt. Und was für welche! Setzte der russische Dirigent bei Chandos noch ganz auf kompakten Klangrausch, so fächert der Pole Borowicz mit seinem Bamberger Orchester den Klang auf, interpretiert deutlich durchsichtiger und luftiger, ohne der Musik seinen besonderen Reiz zu nehmen. Zudem ist die Musik bei cpo deutlich mehr "durchgetrackt", was die Anspielmöglichkeit einzelner Teile deutlich erweitert. Außerdem gibt es mit dem Sinfonischen Vorspiel op.4 noch eine achtminütige Zugabe. Im Ganzen eine tolle CD mit toller Musik, tollen Interpreten und einer rundum gelungenen Präsentation. Sehr zu empfehlen!


The CHANDOS CD of this work mentioned above is indeed excellent, but is unfortunately difficult to find.

I too like the older Brahms.  Regarding the recordings, they include transcriptions of the two clarinet sonatas and a couple of his songs, for violin/piano - but the playing is exquisite, IMO.

I guessed that much about the clarinet sonatas but given that the transcriptions were made by Brahms himself I'm only too willing to hear them. Besides, I have other recordings by Wallin and Pontinen and they are very good. Last but not least, it's been at least a year since I haven't been listening to any Brahms...

The Brahms transcriptions were for viola.

I thought this too. It turns out this isn't correct. He did violin transcriptions and they were published, but for some reason they've never had anything like the traction of the viola versions.

I only assume that violin players weren't starving for sonatas. Heck, they weren't even starving for BRAHMS sonatas.

Ah, OK, I was relying on Wikipedia.  I'll give these transcriptions a listen, but I'm skeptical of how well they'll work.
