Quote from: Roasted Swan on July 12, 2021, 01:14:30 PMI am in no position to say better or best regarding the Cello Sonata - but this is the performance that I first heard and it won me over completely;goodness me these folk can play - great couplings too.....
Quote from: Mirror Image on July 12, 2021, 01:18:39 PMStrange, I can't see the image.
Quote from: Roasted Swan on July 13, 2021, 06:06:52 AMIts the cellist Jelena Ocic on Channel Classics coupling Kabalevsky and Ginastera cello sonatas - very fine disc indeed......
Quote from: kyjo on July 13, 2021, 10:06:18 AMI wasn't aware of this recording - thanks RS. What a great pairing of works - don't know the Senderovas though.
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on February 21, 2022, 05:05:55 PMThis is one of those moments where I just don't recall why I was forgotting the masterpiece of his Violin Concerto. My goodness, it's a real stunner, and just lasting 16 minutes long. Each movement contains their spark and charm, and wonderful tunes. What a rediscovery!
Quote from: vandermolen on February 21, 2022, 11:08:23 PMOh, I must listen to the VC again - I tend to listen to Cello Concerto No,2 on that CD which I consider to be, arguably, his greatest work. Thanks to you and Kyle for reminding me of the Violin Concerto.
Quote from: kyjo on February 22, 2022, 11:28:26 AMYou'll probably find that the VC lacks a sense of impending catastrophic doom, Jeffrey!
Quote from: vandermolen on February 22, 2022, 10:15:50 PMYes, it's probably too perky and upbeat for me Kyle
Quote from: Roasted Swan on February 23, 2022, 04:12:56 AMJust play it at half-speed - that'll make most things sound catastrophic.........
Quote from: vandermolen on August 10, 2022, 12:46:06 PMJust playing this fine, doom-laden, defiant, optimistic work again (Symphony No.4 Leningrad PO/Kabalevsky) - tracking back through this thread I realise how much I miss the contributions of Colin and cilgwyn. Never mind - there is plenty still to appreciate here. I love the return of the doom-laden motto theme from the first movement just before the perky end of the symphony.
Quote from: kyjo on August 10, 2022, 03:27:25 PMCount me in as another admirer of this great symphony (and as another member who misses Colin's and cilgwyn's contributions)! The doom-laden coda of the first movement is simply unforgettable - one of the many highlights of a stirring work. How does that Olympia recording compare to the one on CPO (the only one I've heard)?
