Quote from: Cato on April 26, 2007, 03:10:48 PMAgreed! That one is a classic! And the other works on the CD are must-haves as well, especially the Four Orchestral Songs.
Quote from: greg on April 27, 2007, 07:34:00 AM the only ones left that i can think of are the Cello Concerto, Moses und Aron, Gurrelieder, and Jacobsleiter and i've heard all of Schoenberg (unless i find something later i've overlooked)
Quote from: Cato on April 27, 2007, 09:33:23 AMBy the way, the score to Moses und Aron is being offered on Amazon for $66.
Quote from: Guido on April 27, 2007, 10:36:49 AMI noticed you put the Cello Concerto in your list of favourite works. Its referred to in the Naxos booklet as 'a masterpiece' but I'm not so sure. I prefer the Ma rendition to the Sherry version, though I am usually very keen on Sherry.It is one of the hardest Cello concertos ever written and its just too unreasonably hard to become standard rep (The Prokofiev is similarly difficult, but then one might say that it had more artisitic value).I like it, for its humour and lightness, but I'm not convinced its a great work. Thoughts?

Quote from: karlhenning on April 27, 2007, 10:41:14 AMThat's all right, Greg, I'm sending you thoughts . . . .
Quote from: Guido on April 28, 2007, 06:29:35 PMAs a side note Karl do you ever feel that the Prokofiev's Symphony Concerto is too long? I find it difficult to sit through in one go.
Quote from: greg on April 29, 2007, 10:35:52 AM....Karl is sending me thoughts...he says, "no, yo"....
Quote from: greg on April 30, 2007, 05:39:13 AMjust finished Moses und Aron (well, technically, no one has ever "finished" that opera in any way, but...)my thoughts: best opera I've heard yet, seriously! I'm putting it over L'Amour de Loin, Wozzeck and Dialogues de los Carmelites (or however that title is written) as my favoritenext up: Jakobsleiter, Gurrelieder
Quote from: Cato on April 30, 2007, 06:58:06 AMMoses und Aron is in fact a finished work: Schoenberg's unconscious realized it, even if the frontal lobe did not!
Quote from: greg on April 27, 2007, 10:32:19 AMoh, that's it i say Dover should make miniature scores of every work in existence so people could actually afford them all 0:)
