The new erato

Nice!  :) How does it compare to Christie?  :)

Q
Yes, I have that, but......... :-[  All I can say is that Dauce is intimate with superb singers.

Thanks.  :) And I guess an excellent new recording is always welcome.

It's not like there is such an abundance of choice at the moment....Wiliam Christie is now almost 72 - time for some new talent on the scene.

The new erato

I have most of Dauce's recordings og Harmonia Mundi and have been extremely impressed by all of them. A safe buy without checking out the critics.

Now playing another superb disc:

Really superb, some of the best Brahms playing I've heard.

Finishing off this set this morning....





Fantasia Op. 58
Fantasia Op. posthumous
Fantasia Elegiaca Op. 59



I have always liked the music of Sor and this set does the Fantasias great justice with the playing, interpretations and recording.

Plus, it excludes the ones I listen to least! I wonder why no 8th or 9th?

The project to record all the Mahler Symphonies with the Berliners was halted, if it was ever seriously planned, and in any case Haitink doesn't and never liked the 8th and only performed/recorded it once, as a concession, to his planned-as-such integral cycle. I'm missing one or two recordings from this "Haitink III", if you will (considering the Kerstmatinee cycle No. "II") and it's fascinating, if nothing else, for extremes not usually taken by Haitink and a glorious breadth. (Or languor, depending on your perception.)

Liszt: Ce qu'on entend sur la montagne [Noseda]....





A very powerful but nonetheless sensitive rendition of this wonderful work. Rich orchestral timbres enhance the mood.

Leifs: Saga Symphony [Vanska] - First listen to this work....





Power, drama and tension are words that I would use to describe this work and performance. I liked it.

not that I needed another version, but having recently become more familiar with Cocset, curiosity got the better of me (and after all I have about three times as many recordings of the solo violin works  ;))

Haydn: Stabat Mater
Trinity Choir
Rebel Baroque Orchestra
J. Owen Burdick, conductor

[asin]B0034JV67K[/asin]

The Stabat Mater was probably the most popular Haydn's sacred work during his lifetime. It's easy to see why. 

What I love the most here is the life-affirming feeling (Haydn's trademark) expressed through the whole performance, always light and transparent.  :)

Now:



Listening to Sinfonia Domestica, Op. 53, TrV 209. Maybe not as free-wheeling of a performance as I've heard but the detail in Janowski's approach pays huge dividends for the listener. The Adagio movement, in particular, is beautifully rendered.
