Quote from: Gurn Blanston on April 20, 2007, 05:52:32 PMInteresting, Bunny. For me, I would be interested to hear your take on Komen (I already know Wispelwey). He recorded a complete Beethoven Sonatas cycle on one of those "can't get 'em in America" labels, like Stradivarius or Globe, one of those. Anyway, I friend in Europe was very high on them. Kindly let us know what you think of him.
Quote from: Bunny on April 20, 2007, 07:53:05 PMActually, they also paired up for Beethoven's Complete Sonatas for Pianoforte and Cello. I like that recording very much, if not as much as Wispelwey's later recording of the same material with Dejan Lazic. I haven't heard anything by Komen alone, but some of his fortepiano sonata recordings are available at Amazon now. I haven't seen them reviewed anywhere, but I must admit they look very, very tasty. Although the standard has been set very high by Ronald Brautigam, there aren't enough HIP Beethoven sonatas around so these are very welcome. Btw, the website gives this information about the fortepiano he uses on the Last Sonatas: fortepiano by Conrad Graf, Vienna c. 1830 from the collection of Edwin Beunk, Enschede, the Netherlands. He uses a different fortepiano for each of these recordings. How much do you respect your friend's opinion? Do you think it's worth taking the plunge on his word alone? Perhaps Que know more about them... PAGING QUE...
Quote from: Bunny on April 21, 2007, 06:08:54 AMGeorge, this is wonderful news! I have been considering Malcolm Bilson's Cornell cycle which is ruinously expensive, very uneven, and with uneven sound quality as well. This cycle should be just the thing.
Quote from: Bunny on April 29, 2007, 11:56:33 AMQue, this is very good to know! Have you heard the Veilhan -- Quintette Stadler recording, and if so how do they compare?
Quote from: Bunny on April 29, 2007, 12:12:21 PMQue, the Veilhan recording of the Brahms clarinet quintet is on the Mozart Clarinet quintet recording you posted in the Mozart thread! Have you not listened to it yet? I don't believe that Veilhan and the quintet would have recorded the same material again, and the label is also the same.
Quote from: Que on April 29, 2007, 12:18:54 PMI pictured that because that is its present incarnation - I have a whole Mozart/clarinet box on K617 that includes the previous coupling with the clarinet concerto, conducted by Malgoire (which is not so hot btw). Q
Quote from: Bunny on May 07, 2007, 10:13:13 AMHere's another great recording from L'Archibudelli: Schubert's Quintet in C major, D.956. Very highly recommended! Unfortunately, a picture isn't available.

Quote from: fl.traverso on June 03, 2007, 01:20:59 AMTry thishttp://www.preludeklassiekemuziek.nl/stream/nov06_chopin_calliope_B.htmlJanusz Olejniczak also recorded a few excellent HIP Chopin recordings for Opus 111. Mazurkas, Polonaises, in addition to several mixed programs. "At Home" from the label's Chopin series was also used as the OST for the film "La note bleu" in which Olejniczak plays Chopin himself (Leonhardt starred as Bach himself in a film, too. Never saw the film though.) Coin conducts the Larghetto from cto2. Luc Devos also recorded all nocturnes for Ricercar. But they may only be found used now I think. BTW, obviously I like the Van Oort nocturnes a lot more than others do - his Mozart and Haydn is even better though. Still, for owners of less adventurous tastes, the Boegner set above may be a surer bet. Beautifully recorded.
