More from MAY



violoncello da spalla



"Cornelia Horak traces Joseph Haydn’s years of travel in England in search of the dawn of Classical-era song. Together with Richard Fuller on fortepiano, an acknowledged expert in this era, the internationally renowned Austrian soprano applies her talents to the “original canzonettas” that the composer wrote in the mid-1790s, most of them on texts by his British friend Anne Hunter. They represent an elaborate further development of the German-language songs Haydn had written up to that point and form one of the starting points for the immediately proceeding flights of fancy in this genre."









"opera semiseria" haha



"This second volume of orchestral music by the English composer Steve Elcock (b. 1957), long since resident in France, brings three powerful works all with their origins in earlier pieces. Incubus examines the terrors of nightmare-riven sleep in a vigorous symphonic essay based on a movement from Elcock’s string quartet Night after Night. The impulse behind Haven, an expansive and surprisingly muscular fantasy, is the Sarabanda theme from Bach’s First Partita for solo violin. And Elcock’s Fifth Symphony takes its cue from the most famous of all Fifth Symphonies, re-examining Beethoven’s structural logic in Elcock’s own musical language to produce a volcanic new Fifth, its charge of wild energy husbanded to maximum dramatic effect."



"Born in Cologne in 1847, Agnes Zimmermann settled in London and was soon celebrated as a fine pianist, teacher, music editor and composer. As a performer, her partners included Clara Schumann, Joachim and Neruda. As a composer, the three violin sonatas from the 1860s and ’70s form the centre of her oeuvre. Dramatic, lyrical and beautifully crafted, these substantial contributions to the repertoire lie somewhere between Mendelssohn and Brahms in approach and demonstrate an impressively personal musical voice." Violinist Mathilde Milwidsky is 25 years old.

Finally, a reissue:

I thought Part I was relatively good.

Should have saved the idea for that cover for the "Ghost Trio"

PAGING GURN!

:D  I've already been looking around in hopes of pre-ordering it. My regular source (Presto) haven't heard of it yet, but I'm looking elsewhere even now. I like Fuller's playing, he is quite stylish. Don't know her, hope she approaches Dorothee Mields or Mhairie Lawson, my favorites in these works.  :)

Never thought I'd see the day that CPO puts out a disc of Beethoven.

CPO just released a Beethoven violin concerto, also.



"The prospect of hearing Alina Ibragimova in two of the most important concertos written for the violin is in itself irresistibly enticing, but Shostakovich aficionados will also welcome an opportunity to hear the rarely performed original opening to the Burlesque of No 1, subsequently made less fearsome for the soloist at the request of the work’s dedicatee, David Oistrakh." You can very VERY clearly the difference in the free sound clip here.

That Shostakovich is definitely mouth-watering. Ibragimova’s series of Mozart sonatas (w. Tiberghien) and Ysaÿe sonatas are superb.

Hmm, Haselböck et al are one of my favorite bands. Don't know Wallisch, but I might well like to! We'll see how long it takes to be able to dig this one up!  :)

violoncello da spalla

You can see and hear Malov play No.6 on the All of Bach website - a beautiful video production:
https://www.bachvereniging.nl/en/bwv/bwv-1012/

Also great to see more Haydn coming up from Ibragimova and her gang.

Cross-posted from the Boulez composer thread...

Bon anniversaire, M. Boulez!

The recording by Ralph van Raat of the early Prélude, toccata et scherzo is scheduled for release in May. It’ll be fascinating to get to know a pre-Notations work, and one in which presumably (and given the title) Boulez was still under influences other than those that he retained for his first “acknowledged” compositions.

That's a fascinating collection, and there's something very Boulezian about the striking cover image having an ID number rather than a name.

I know May's some time off yet, and things might have settled a little bit by then (staying at home now is one way to ensure these restrictions don't outstay their welcome), but I wonder how this will affect the ability of these releases to be available. I doubt CD delivery is an essential service. I mean, Amazon have already started saying their Prime stuff will be delivered in 4 weeks' time.

I've seen this gentleman's works posted before, but am even more struck by the great misalignment of his name and profession... It's like a boxer named Glassjaw, or porn actor named Softwood...

I once saw in a Romanian hospital a door whose plate read "Dental Surgery" and then the name of the doctor, which meant "gap-toothed" in Romanian. It's real.  :laugh:
