Johannes de Clèves (?1529-1582).

Oh wow,  exciting!  :)

A motet by German born Johannes Cleeff aka Johannes de Cleve is included in volume I of the Leiden Choirbooks, and another motet and a tenor Lied on the recording Renaissance am Rhein by Singer Pur.

I'm up for the new Cinquecento recording!

Me too, most definitively!
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Ah thanks, I hadn't identified Cleeff and Cleve! I  like the Egidus Kwartet's Peccata mea / Quoniam iniquitatem

On the 1715 Harraß, details here

http://www.ammer-cembalo.de/1715.html

 The interpretation seems energetic and even motoric more than expressive and profound. She says

Quote
This Harraß copy was particularly inspiring as an instrument on which to play the second volume of this monumental collection displaying an encyclopedic range of the national styles, genres, and writing of the time. The richness and variety of this series, unparalleled in content, prompted me to exploit more fully the opportunities for combinations of timbre, to change register more often, and in some cases to adopt an organ-like manner of performing.

which led me to expect something more fresh and imaginative than I’m hearing . . . not that what she’s doing isn’t perfectly OK . . .

This new release comes out April 16th. It's nice to see that DG chose an actual work of art for the cover rather than Yuja in some ridiculously skimpy outfit! Sort of a throwback to their more artistic covers from several decades ago.

PIAS's newsletter for this week announces the release of the third volume of Benjamin Alard's Bach traversal, and the final volume of Cuarteto Casals's Beethoven cycle.

I do love that cover for the John Adams album. DG does persist in using a typeface which pairs very poorly with their rather baroque banner. Bring back serifs!

And speaking of what made the old covers even better... going through my newly arrived Big Box of Boston Symphony DG albums I'm struck by how many have gorgeous artwork...and how many have original artwork. I think the "4D" series in the early 90s still had original art on many covers.

Nice album! Quite a must for anyone interested in Ysaÿe.

It contains works composed by him, but also many dedicated to or first performed by him: the Debussy quartet, Franck and Lekeu sonatas for violin and piano, Chausson’s Poème for violin and orchestra and his huge Concert for violin, piano and string quartet. No Solo violin sonatas, but then there are two or three dozen versions to choose from.

This is very evocative of high quality domestic music making - the music is charming, polyphonic and relatively simple (eg strophic songs.)

Isn't it nice when people make album programming decisions that are a little different but which make sense?

Indeed!

This other album (4 cds) brings together violin sonatas dedicated to Ysaÿe. A mini who’s who of french composers from the late 19th to early 20th century:

Do you suppose this is a re-release of this one?  Or has he done it over?  This is quite an excellent disk, well worth some higher circulation:

No, it's not the same. Very different.  We can have lots of fun doing a "compare and contrast."

No, I haven’t. I nearly did, they gave a concert with it in London last year, and I wanted to go but didn’t make it.

I know the violinist from his recording (rather good) of music by Finnissy; and the pianist has already recorded For John Cage with an unnamed member of The Smith Quartet. In fact I never listen to it, if I want to hear this music I tend to prefer the extraordinary tone of Paul Zukofsky with Marianne Schroeder. I can imagine that Darragh Morgan’s sound (tense) will suit John Tilbury’s style (tense.)
