On the one hand, Nelson Freire!  On the other hand, encores.  I'll still bite.













More Beethoven releases for the upcoming year.  The Dalberto is a must-buy.  Oehms and Naxos appear to be in a poorly lit cover image contest.



In case you wanted to know how well Salman Rushdie's niece plays.



What an awful, awful cover.









Tanja Tetzlaff playing Bach alone is appealing.  Thorsten Encke, in my admittedly limited experience with his music, writes good stuff, making this disc even more intriguing.

The Inkinen appears to be a continuation of a cycle started by the rather uninteresting Karl-Marek Chichon.

I wonder what the premiere of Beethoven No. 6 is. I thought people referred to Op. 61a as No. 6.

Hope there's some fun Brazilian stuff on the Freire.

Probably this
Quote
Piano Concerto No. 6 in D major, Hess 15 is an unfinished piano concerto by German composer Ludwig van Beethoven.

In (estimated) late 1814 and early 1815,[1] Beethoven spent a great deal of time on a project that never reached completion: a piano concerto in D major, which would if completed have been the sixth. He made about seventy pages of sketches for the first movement. He even started writing out a full score (MS Artaria 184 in the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin), which runs almost uninterrupted from the beginning of the movement to the middle of the solo exposition (bar 182), although the scoring becomes patchy as the work proceeds and there are signs of indecision or dissatisfaction on the composer's part. Beethoven abandoned the work, and this partial movement (known as Hess 15)[1] remains one of the most substantial of Beethoven's unrealized conceptions.[2]

A completion of the first movement was reconstructed by British scholar Nicholas Cook in 1987.
[From Wikipedia]

As for Concerto Zero
Quote
Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Concerto in E flat major, WoO 4, is one of his earlier works, written in 1784 when he was only 14. Only the solo piano part survives today, although there are some indications in the manuscript for orchestral cues.[1] On the occasions when the work has been performed, the orchestral part has had to be arranged beforehand. The concerto is sometimes referred to as Piano Concerto No. 0, as it came before all of Beethoven's other piano concertos. It is rarely performed. Pianists Howard Shelley and Ronald Brautigam have each made their own reconstructions of the concerto.

BTW, Wikipedia's listing also includes a fragment of a violin concerto (part of the first movement remains) and a lost oboe concerto for which some sketches survive. Both of these date from 1790-1793.

I have been playing the Delphin Strungk all day, a strange mixture of  melancholy and nobility and solemnity and seriousness. Well enough recorded, maybe a bit splashy - bass there, midrange there, a splash of treble up there - but that may reflect the church acoustic. Fabulous instruments evidently. The influence of Peter Philips and hence to Sweelinck is palpable everywhere.

Some Ockeghem songs are wonderful and this could just be very special. By coincidence I listened to their Dufay a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Listening now to this I feel that that comment, which reveals a certain blasé feeling on my part, doesn't do the recording justice. They get better and better in Machaut -- in particular we hear more of Mark Dobell, who I like, and less of Matthew Venner.

Did you hear the Chichon discs?  I thought they were actually very good.  He had a natural unaffected feel for the music that suited these early Dvorak Symphonies very well.  Well recorded and very sympathetically played too.  I was/will be very sorry that the cycle never reached the later works.......

I will certainly buy this since I have all the others, and I think this is the last installment.  I have enjoyed this series quite a lot.

This is what kills such boxes for me. Hi, would you like to buy an extra 20 or so discs? You've already bought a 100 so let's sell you the same compositions again because we have more of our catalogue that we want to squeeze some value out of. It's not the complete Beethoven, it's the complete roster.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

This set goes even further with the complete roster mentality by dividing every cycle but the cello sonatas among multiple performers. Hope you think they chose properly dividing the quartets among Emerson, Hagen, and Takacs!

Yes I did. Oddly enough I agree with you on his traits. It's just that to my ears, unaffected came across as uninterested at times.

MORE OCTOBER GOODIES



"Gordon Safari" yeah sure that's totally a real name







This is a 3CD highlight box of Kocsis' Hungaroton recordings. Despite the cover, only half of one CD has him as conductor (for Kossuth, the divertimento, and the violin concerto with Barnabas Kelemen). The rest is mostly chamber music - Cage, Bartok, Debussy - plus a single movement from Schubert's Trout and a couple solo pieces by Mozart and Haydn. Oddly chosen.

Also Naxos will release Weinberg's Flute Concertos and Beethoven's Egmont and woodwind music (part of their very obvious attempt to get a Complete Works box ready for 2020). Inon Barnatan is also doing a Beethoven concerto cycle, with Alan Gilbert.

Piano Trio, Piano Quartet and Piano Quintet. I know his symphonies and all they are very good. No. 2 is not recorded yet for some strange reason.

A couple I will keep my out for, soon to be released from Hyperion:

 The Silken Tent
C‎LARE WILKINSON mezzo-soprano
F‎RETWORK



Quote
From Byrd and Gibbons through to Nyman and Goehr, this album puts to bed the idea that the viol is a spent force, the instruments' beguiling lines sinuously interweaving with soprano voice—and taking in some arresting arrangements.

Palestrina
Lamentations, Second Book of Lamentations
Cinquecento



Quote
The members of Cinquecento turn to perhaps the pre-eminent composer of the sixteenth century: Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina. Settings of the Lamentations of Jeremiah would have been integral to the liturgical rites of Holy Week: here is one of the most sublime.
