Second volume out now. Has anyone heard the first?

Kawamura seems to be planning to record only 14 of the sonatas, so there should be one or two more volumes to come, unless she changes her mind later.


I was going to wait until she was done and get them all.  I doubt I'll do that now, or at least I'll just stream later on.  Why would anyone plan on 14?  An unusual number.

They're not streamable—appear to be Japan-only, CD-only releases. (At least for now.)

I assume she's just recording the ones she likes best, as pianists are wont to do.

I believe this is the first recording with Gardiner conducting Bach's violin concertos:



Ivan Fischer competing with his brother Adam in Beethoven:



A bit unusual isn't it... a pianist conducting from the keyboard in Brahms? Lars Vogt does it:

I can’t find any information about this upcoming set, but it does look rather interesting:

Sub Marais played in a totally hum drum way -- on the basis of the first suite, couldn't be bothered to listen to more.

 Morel's time has come it seems



First impressions of the Jay Bernfeld are much more positive than my first impressions (which I didn't pursue) of the Alejandro Marias.

Thanks for the information. 8) I don’t think I’ve ever heard Mehta in Bruckner at all. I know he’s recorded a good bit of his music previously.

What looks like an interesting essay in the booklet on Bach's use of viola da piccolo in the cantatas etc.

In the booklet she talks about how she was inspired by her encounter with an c18 Italian cello

I like The Bach Players and this is new music for me, so I'm looking forward to exploring what it's all about.

When she sings high she can bring an attractive vulnerability to the music, I get a strong impression that these are "inhabited" interpretations, well thought through. I shall be exploring.

Organologically this is interesting

Quote
Small harpsichord in the Italian style (2005): 1, 2 , 6, 7
Large harpsichord in the Italian style (2007): 3, 4, 5
Harpsichord by Hans Rückers (Antwerp, 1615). Copy made in 2000: 8, 9, 10
Large harpsichord in the German style by Johan Heinrich Gräbner (Dresden, 1722). Copy made
in 2014: 11

Well recorded and it sounds as though he's a sensitive performer. I shall definitely be exploring. The booklet contains what looks like a good essay on the evolution of the toccata.
