Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on September 21, 2021, 09:38:43 AMWill be interested in hearing how you like Gergiev's "Nutcracker". I have this recording with the Kirov and hated it; way too fast for me! I noticed that your set is on two CDs though.Sadly, it's in my pile to sell or give away. PD
Quote from: OrchestralNut on September 24, 2021, 04:44:29 AMI absolutely love it because of the brisk pace. One of my most often listened to discs! Love it immensely and have for well over a decade. However, I tend to have a bias for brisk performances of most music. With exceptions, of course.So, count me in as a fan along with vlf and Harry Tchaikovsky!
Quote from: André on September 24, 2021, 07:35:11 AMI had it and sold it. It's good, but I want more (a lot more) from a complete Nutcracker. I's not a question of tempi. Dorati's magical COA recording is almost identical in timing. Has to do with the colours the conductor elicits from the orchestra. Gergiev is a more 'horizontal' conductor, not very interested in bringing out individual scoring details. His Shostakovich 7th is splendid, but in a work like Nutcracker he misses the sparkle and magic. I keep seeing his furrowed brow. Really a matter of perception, I know...
Quote from: OrchestralNut on September 24, 2021, 09:29:31 AMI haven't heard the Dorati Nutcracker, but do absolutely adore Dorati and RCO in The Sleeping Beauty!
Quote from: JBS on September 24, 2021, 05:55:42 PMA small order from ArkivmusicBut that small order was preceded by a much larger Amazon order...And a final one off Amazon MP
Quote from: classicalgeek on September 24, 2021, 10:46:47 PMI haven't ordered from Berkshire Record Outlet in at least ten years, so in my reacquisition frenzy, I had to pay them a visit.
Quote from: classicalgeek on September 24, 2021, 10:46:47 PMI haven't ordered from Berkshire Record Outlet in at least ten years, so in my reacquisition frenzy, I had to pay them a visit. Given my ongoing exploration of George Lloyd, I ordered some of his symphonies and concertos. The score to Brian's 'Gothic' is now available on IMSLP; I like to listen with the music in hand (or on my computer screen), and Brabbins' is a better performance than the Slovak forces on Marco Polo. I'd heard good things about Gilbert's Nielsen cycle, same thing about the Brahms chamber music on Hyperion. And of course right now I'm really into Koechlin's orchestral music, so I was thrilled to find this Hanssler disc cheap! I hope BRO gets the other CDs in Holliger's Koechlin series in stock.It will take some restraint not to place an order in the next few weeks... I'm still eyeing several of the big conductor boxes (Muti, Mehta on Warner or Sony, Previn) as a way to get some core repertoire relatively inexpensively. Must... resist...
Quote from: Daverz on September 24, 2021, 06:35:57 PMFor the Ippolotov-Ivanov, whose music seems to have fallen completely out of fashion. Good early stereo. Another good recording is Feoseyev, which was on various labels, and Naxos has a CD with both Caucasian Suites Nos. 1 and 2.Interestingly, the pic above is from towerrecords.com. I don't know who owns the Tower name and logo (really triggers my nostalgia) and can't vouch for this website.
