Indeed she was. Good day, André.

The Strauss fest continues, with Montserrat Caballé singing the final scene from Salomé, under the baton of Leonard Bernstein.



Allein was tut's? Was tut's?
Ich habe deinen Mund geküßt,
Jokanaan
”.

Wunderbar!

And good day to you too, Rafael!

I should get this recording of the Final Scene with Caballé. I have her complete Salomé (under Leinsdorf), but this one under Bernstein probably finds her more free to express herself vocally and dramatically than under Leinsdorf.

NP:

Stravinsky
Renard
John Tomlinson (bass), David Wilson-Johnson (baritone), John Aler (tenor), Nigel Robson (tenor)
London Sinfonietta
Salonen




I’ll have to read more about this as I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be silly or not, but it’s certainly a fun romp. 8) This work does remind me a bit of Les noces with it’s almost relentless, drunken forward momentum. Solti should’ve conducted this work! :P

I liked it Karl,It did me think of a transcription Webern made of Bach das musikalische opfer bwv 1079  :)

Apt, I think, Jan, as Stravinsky undertook this project after his acquaintance with Webern's work.

And, now:

Stravinsky
Disc 18: Oratorio—Melodrama Vol. 1

Œdipus Rex

The Flood
(conducted by Robt Craft in the composer's presence, Hollywood, 28-31 Mar 1962)

If you ever get the chance, do see the film Stravinsky in Hollywood. It touches on his later period with some insightful commentary.

It's curious.  Whenever my ear hankers for Stravinsky, I never think of The Flood, but whenever I listen to it, I'm enraptured.

Kinsella: Cello Concerto No. 1



A fine work that seems very well played here.

Ah yes, the Stravinsky set is where mine came from. 8) Good to hear you watched the documentary already. Have you seen the Tony Palmer film, Once at a Border? I should revisit this one as it’s been years since I’ve seen it.
