Quote from: Dancing Divertimentian on March 08, 2014, 08:38:23 PMBrahms's chamber works with piano are some of my favorite pieces of all (along with the piano concertos). Brahms being a pianist himself it seems to me the whole piano/chamber group interacting thing was a big challenge to him and something he reveled in. The piano quartets, the sonatas for clarinet and piano, the piano quintet, the piano trios, the sonatas for violin and piano...for me these works rank way up there as far as greatest works ever written.I guess it helps that I love the piano.

Quote from: Mirror Image on March 08, 2014, 08:58:46 PM What do you think about Dutilleux's music, Ken? He's been a composer I've become more and more fascinated by throughout the years. Naturally seen as an extension of what Debussy and Ravel were doing, but it seems his star is still on the rise. So many box sets have already come out in the last few years. I think I own them all now.
Quote from: Ken B on March 08, 2014, 09:31:35 PMHe wasn't on my radar at all until about 2 years ago, just a name, until I picked up the symphonies used. I like the symphonies a lot. I see Honegger more than Ravel actually, and Roussell. But I haven't heard much beyond those and the cello concerto (which I wish sounf more like Honegger ) so I can't say much. Any box you recommend, especially to a devotee of the SDCB?
Quote from: Mirror Image on March 08, 2014, 09:33:43 PMI think Dutilleux absorbed a bit of Bartok, too. Which recording of the symphonies do you own? From here, I can give a recommendation for a box set.

Quote from: Ken B on March 08, 2014, 09:41:38 PMTortelier, and Plasson on EMI, so I have them twice.
Quote from: Mirror Image on March 08, 2014, 09:47:04 PMOkay, I would say go for the Graf on Arte Nova. This can actually be purchased as a set via Amazon France now. Graf brings a Boulezian sense of clarity to the music that you don't always get with say Tortelier. While I wouldn't want to be without Tortelier, I think Graf's performances bring the into a sharper focus, but sometimes I like getting lost in the more dreamy, atmospheric performances of Tortelier. I had Plasson but I gave it away. I thought he didn't bring anything to the musical table at all. It just seemed like an underrehearsed, rush-to-get it recorded job to these ears.

Quote from: Ken B on March 08, 2014, 09:44:37 PMEven more so than mine! You know Purcell's music for viola da gamba, or Locke's? I assume you know Saint Colombe ...Excellent stuff, a Maraisian would like it.
