Quote from: arpeggio on September 10, 2016, 06:42:35 PMGinastera is one of my favorites. He ranks forty-seventh in my library. I have fifty recordings (now fifty-one) in my library. If I factor out the duplicates, like the five copies of Estancia I still have recordings of over forty works.Sony just released the only recording of Ginastera's opera Bomarzo. Of course I snatched it up as soon as it was released. I mentioned this in the "Purchases Today" Thread.I love it. Reminds me of a Spanish Lulu. If one likes Lulu and late Ginastera they will love this.
Quote from: Thatfabulousalien on September 10, 2016, 05:03:16 PMI think I need to take guidance from our friend Nathanb and purposefully limited the music I listen to. I discover too much on a daily basis to keep up with a lot of it. New sounds are great, BUT when I'm not familiarising myself enough with them, I fail for a lot of pieces to mean something to me. I'm considering listening to only:Bartok's Sonata for Two Piano's and Percussion Mahler's Wonderhorn The obligatory Xenakis And Lilburn's third Symphony For a whole week.

Quote from: Florestan on September 14, 2016, 04:10:31 AMBrahmsScherzo in B-flat minor op. 4A remarkably beautiful and coherent piece for a first composition (the opus number is misleading, this is the first extant work of Brahms, composed in 1851).
Quote from: jessop on September 14, 2016, 05:17:41 AMI enjoyed that Mozart very much Florestan! I'm especially a fan of his many Masses and other liturgical works. What are your favourites?
Quote from: Jo498 on September 14, 2016, 06:53:17 AMAnother odd thing about the Brahms's scherzo is that Brahms supposedly claimed he had not known the Chopin scherzi when he wrote it but it does sound damn close to some passages of these works...
Quote from: Visions_fugitives on September 14, 2016, 09:09:20 AMSchumann's Violinsonate no.2 op.121, in particular the third movement, "Leise, einfach".Simply outstanding.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJc1RhzF9w0
Quote from: North Star on September 14, 2016, 09:17:22 AMThat certainly is a beauty!
Quote from: Florestan on September 14, 2016, 07:08:43 AMTo my shame I must confess that besides the Coronation Mass and the Requiem Mozart's sacred music is virtually unkown to me ....
