First time listening to the music of Anton Zimmermann, a few tracks from this soon-to-be release are available on Apple Music.

Mahler

I don't listen to these songs very often. Why ? Because I love them so much.

Dvorak’s wind serenade is my favourite work of his, and one of the very first of anything I heard in concert.

Concerto no 2. Typical Vieuxtemps: sprightly, lyrical, elegant, with the usual devilish pyrotechnics.

Concerto no 3 begins. It is exactly 75% longer than its predecessor, with the first movement as long as that of the Brahms concerto. I expect a nice time.

No I don’t. I guess you recommend it ? It’s not as often recorded as its sister work, the Serenade for strings op 22. You’ve got to love that march and its return at the work’s close.

Very impressive. In my search for recordings of the work (over a dozen) I notice that timings range from 42 minutes to 62 minutes. Most are around 46-50 (Kalish clocks in at 49). Ives insisted that the score was a template for the performer’s artistic feelings, and was not to be construed as a set of technical indications for performance.

Other recommendations ?

Hi, Andre. I love it, up there alongside Wand/Berlin, Boulez/Vienna as my top 8th's. Knapps takes his time with the music, plenty of space for each theme to develop and reveal itself, so be prepared for a broad 8th. I also like some of the nuances that Knapps focuses on, mainly with the dynamics ,and articulation of some of the phrasing. I find the overall flow is very fluid, a more gradual ebb and flow, but still packs a punch at times.
They are performing the Schalk edition, which I believe this is the only recording I've heard of it. Highly recommended!

A second listen to a couple of performances that didn't register earlier in the week -

Elgar: Symphony No 2 - Edward Gardner conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra, fine performance, beautifully played and recorded
Vaughan Williams: Dona nobis pacem - Edward Gardner conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra & Chorus and soloists - from Prom 41 - moving performance.
