Harry is probably looking for an image of some nice Renaissance art for his replacement cover as we speak...  :D

Agreed.  ::)  "Like shooting fish in a barrel", "no 💩, Sherlock", etc.

By THEIR standards it's a good one.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Pletnev doing Rach live?  Yeah, should be good.

Laughed at that painting.

Surely you will listen to the Schittenhelm on your Schiit amp?

Andre Schuen makes me think of Frank Galagher in the British version of Shameless.

The Jansons DSCH box is coming back - with his concerto recordings added to the symphonies.



(Mikhail Rudy and Truls Mork are the soloists)

I assumed the original DG cover image was Kit Harrington in Game of Thrones - "Winter is coming" and all that seemed rather appropriate....?

He didn't do the violin concertos?

In all seriousness, I do like that cover.

He's from the part of the Tyrol that is part of Italy. There's actually a local language called Ladin.  Heide is his long term lieder partner, and they've made several recordings including Schone Mullerin and Schwangesang.

Seems pretty nice actually. He's got a distinctive light bowing style, and the phrasing seems full of life. Here's the booklet

As with many things I will probably grow to like it, but I find it a bit too choppy and aggressive. I did enjoy the Biber passacaglia arrangement - and the earthy, viola-like sound overall.

You gave me a copy of that one!  Good disc, and not far from my ideal of female beauty either.  If I were more appreciative of male beauty, I'm sure the chap on the new Beauty Farm disc would do it for me too.

You got me playing it now. Very nice to.

LATE MAY STUFF ON NAXOS (that hasn't been posted before)







EDIT: Wow, I looked at the booklet of the Reinvere recording to learn more about the composer. The booklet's praise is over-the-top.

"Jüri Reinvere knows how to write music as intense as the scent of seaweed, the sultriness of a summer's night, but also with the sweat of fear in anticipation of death. He powerfully grips his listeners and does not let them go until they have experienced stories of passion and exhaustion, dreamlike beauty and nightmarish catastrophes, of longing, ecstasy and realisation."

All three of these works were written for the festival orchestra. He was a student of Lepo Sumera and Ingmar Bergman (!).

AND A LITTLE BIT MORE



Looks like we will have a new Ries cycle to compete with CPO's chamber orchestra recordings with Howard Griffiths. The total timings on each symphony are almost identical.





Pretty amazing repertoire in this, plus Janet Baker! EDIT: You can open the back cover image in a new tab to see it full-size and read the text.

Oh and just one more thing...

There's a relatively long (or at least verbose) Wikipedia page for Reinvere

Regarding the Paul Wee CD..I assume Henselt is Fanny M. But who is Bronsart?

Adolph von Henselt actually. And Hans Bronsart von Schellendorf. The former's concerto was apparently a huge romantic smash up through the 20s, when it dropped out of the repertoire and has been recorded only by Ponti, Lewenthal, and Hamelin. Clara gave the premiere as he had ended his playing career due to severe stage fright. The latter composer gave the premiere of Liszt PC2.
