Working my way through the psalms in this and very much enjoying the organ, and Tomadin’s way of using it - which seems to give each psalm a face of its own. Tomadin seems to me to have found a golden mean in fact, between an academic performance and an overly expressive one.

I get this set this week so I am curious if I would agree with you. Tomadin is not always consistent in his approach. But I like what you wrote.
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.

My first reaction was less positive, because of his touch, there seemed to be a lot of fussy things going on. But now I've got past that negativity somehow.

What would an overly expressive van Noordt sound like?

I liked his video version of Psalm 24, very poetic first verse https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJ4AyK4hSh8

Another one maybe is Tuma at Dosky here (Good CD IMO)  (and of course Winsemius)

Great to see Dutton releasing classical stuff again! It’s been a while since they have, it seems. I’d particularly love to see more releases in their wonderfully exploratory “International” series.

I wanted to get excited about this release, but I can't. While I love both of these works, neither of them need another recording, IMHO.

Nice cover art!

Do you think Stephen Hough is an interesting pianist? And if so, what makes him distinctive and/or special? The problem I have is that the music isn't streaming and I don't know whether to take a punt on him or not, especially in music where there are a zillion competing interpretations already, like these nocturnes.

What I noticed is that Hough mentions how Chopin's preference for the Pleyel played such an import role in writing this music:

"There is significance too that his indications are generally faster than later norms (the much-loved Op 27 No 2 is a startling example). Chopin’s original tempi and long phrase markings encourage melodies to float in one breath across the bar lines; and his preferred Pleyel piano had a much faster decay of resonance than modern instruments, compelling the pianist to move on to the next note before the sound literally dies."

But of course, he doesn't use a Pleyel...   ::)

Recorded in May of this year.



A 2022 release.  I'll be patient.  I've not bought a new Mozart sonata cycle since, like, 2020.
