Quote from: karlhenning on April 12, 2007, 06:44:04 AMMust be trouble finding a wind machine for No. 7
Quote from: O Mensch on April 12, 2007, 06:40:04 AMI wish someone would program RVW in my neck of the woods! I don't understand why Nos. 4 & 7 in particular aren't preformed more often.
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on April 12, 2007, 07:09:38 AMO, you'll have to plan a trip to Stuttgart this June: Norrington has the Fourth programmed along with the Elgar Violin Concerto (Hilary Hahn).
Quote from: Harry on April 12, 2007, 09:15:28 AMStill waiting for me to be heard is the complete set with Haitink on EMI. I should start with that soon I guess!
Quote from: O Mensch on April 12, 2007, 09:23:51 AMIt's a great one. I just got that recently. Best Antartica without narration.
Quote from: Harry on April 12, 2007, 09:33:47 AMYou are kidding me right?Are you saying its without this irritating narration?Then indeed it is a great one.Heard some fragments from the 5th & 6th symphonies.Awesome!
Quote from: O Mensch on April 12, 2007, 09:38:15 AMYes, Haitink's Antartica is without narration. Boult has the traditionally used poems that RVW put in the original score. Leppard (Indianapolis SO) has a very fine recording with an alternative narration of excerpts from Scott's diaries, which I think works better. Allegedly, Leppard discussed this idea with RVW personally.

Quote from: O Mensch on April 12, 2007, 07:17:29 AMIf I didn't have a violent allergy to everything Norrington does, I would consider it, if only to hear Hahn.... BTW, you still owe us a full acount of your trip to Berlin.
Quote from: karlhenning on April 12, 2007, 07:20:53 AMThat is a terrific concert program . . . I admit, I mentally added a question mark to the conductor's name :-)
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on April 12, 2007, 01:28:28 PMKarl, O, I'm of two minds about Norrington: I love his ... Berlioz
