Luys Milan etc - the usual suspects. There's also a Vol 2 and a whole bunch of other recordings too. I'm impressed by the imagination and finesse of lutenists coming out of Asia, so I shall be listening to this.

https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/8689393--global-player-maximilian-musikalisches-networking-um-1500

My feeling is that this is very nice singing of very nice music -- top quality, small ensemble sometimes a capella. This is good, my radar says.

I like the idea of calling Maximilian a global player, and I like the subtitle -- Musikalisches Networking um 1500. Ensemble rosarum flores are clearly my style. The label may well have other interesting things

Hmmm:



"Superstar tenor, Roberto Alagna, returns with his sensational new album Caruso. Caruso 1873 is Alagna’s tribute to the Neapolitan singer who Alagna considers to be the greatest tenor of all time. Alagna honours his legendary predecessor with a selection of repertoire drawn from Caruso’s own recording career, which stretched from 1902 to 1920. Alagna is accompanied by the critically acclaimed Orchestre National D’ile-de-France, singers Aleksandra Kurzak and Rafal Siwek and conductor, pianist and arranger, yvan Cassar. The music chosen is a journey back in time through Caruso’s eclectic repertoire."



"As bonus track it contains the 3rd movement of the “Tempest” sonata."

We now know the contents of this one, which was posted a few pages back:



Chopin's Ballades, Liszt's Petrarca sonnets, and Scriabin's Fourth Sonata + poemes Op 32



"Alexandre Tharaud pays tribute to composers associated with the courts of the French kings Louis XIV, XV and XVI. Lully, Rameau, Charpentier and François Couperin stand beside lesser-known masters: d’Anglebert, Forqueray, Royer, Duphly and Balbastre. “I’ve always been attracted by French music of this period,” says Tharaud, adding that when he plays the album’s initial Rameau prelude, “It’s like being alone at Versailles, opening the doors and entering those huge, imposing rooms.”"

with soprano Sabine Devieilhe, second pianist Justin Taylor, and a simultaneous release on vinyl



New Roussel!

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.

This is an exceptional, outstanding, release.

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

This is another exceptionally interesting recording, the counterpoint, the clarity of the lower voices, it’s quite a revelation. He’s quite free with ornamentation, and dynamics, I can’t comment on how informed his practice is, I suspect not at all!

It’s challenging like Helene Schmitt is challenging, so now you’ve been warned. You may think it’s a farce.

I am still listening, but my initial reaction has been to not like his tone on the instrument.

Hard to know what volume to play it at, I’ve turned it quite low and that seems to be a good thing. The big bad fugue in 1005 is bizarre, full of jolting mood swings, empfindsamer style. But maybe that’s ok! (I like to hear the trio sonata in opfer played like that, so why not this?)

Super excited for this early January release:

I’ve really loved Brabbins’ RVW recordings so far. Definitely hope this recording is as good as the others.

Wow, BIS releases a box of all 10 CDs of Suzuki J. S. Bach secular cantatas!

I have only volumes 1 & 2 so I think getting this is a great deal!  $:)

Nice! I've been getting Suzuki's Beethoven lately, might be time for some Bach. I've heard good things about this cycle... :)

Organologically this is interesting

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.

This is turning out to be a rather enjoyable recital CD.

How is his four string violoncello piccolo tuned? Like a normal cello (CGDA) or like a violin (GDAE) but an octave lower?

Not a ton of DECEMBER info just yet but here are some highlights of what we do know:

I just have to say, I love the name Pancho Vladigerov.

I have a CD of his music which I rather enjoyed. That release looks interesting.

I’ve only listened to the D’Andrieu sonata which starts the disc off, and it sounds charming!

This music seems to me totally predictable and completely uninteresting. Life's too short.





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

This is lovely music and is very well played. Makes you glad to be alive.
