Quote from: Symphonic Addict on January 23, 2023, 10:13:12 AMLet's not forget the dreamy Introduction et Allegro for flute, clarinet, harp and string quartet (there's also a version with string orchestra on a Chandos CD) and the Sonata for violin and cello.
Quote from: Irons on January 24, 2023, 01:06:14 AMThe Sonata for Violin and Cello is a fabulous work. A hidden gem.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on January 24, 2023, 08:42:56 AMI don't believe that I've heard that work before now. Whose recording do you like of it Lol?Off to put on at least one of a 2-CD set of Ravel's piano works with Bavouzet on an MDG CD.PD
Quote from: Irons on January 25, 2023, 12:06:15 AMI listened in open mouth astonishment to a piece I thought minor Ravel (of course there is no such thing). A work highly recommended, PD.
Quote from: dahugee on January 25, 2023, 07:00:39 AMI'm fond of this recording, which also has my favorite rendition of the string quartet!http://big10inchrecord.blogspot.com/2018/04/ravel-with-pascal-quartet-oscar-shumsky.html?m=0
Quote from: relm1 on January 23, 2023, 04:49:05 PMCross post - I posted this in the Ivanovs thread but really loved this. It's a colorful quasi symphonic poem/symphony (think Scriabin and Lyatoshynsky) as being [b]late romatic, colorful, dramatic[/b] works with I think a program. Here with a large and colorful orchestra including harp, celesta, wordless choir, and saxophones.
Quote from: Løvfald on February 08, 2023, 12:43:03 PMJeanne d'Arc au BûcherHonegger's greatest creation? It certainly is the most impressive work I have ever heard by him so far. An absolute masterpiece, with its dialogues, spoken parts and all. The choral and orchestral writings at the peak of his creative powers. The last part Jeanne en flammes is powerfully vivid and heartfelt. Remarkable in every way.
Quote from: pjme on February 05, 2023, 07:06:55 AMIndeed, very "romantic, colorful and dramatic"! Fun too! I was reminded of this 1961 "spectacular"....The score is by Russell Garcia - an adventurous musician. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russell_Garcia_(composer)
Quote from: pjme on February 11, 2023, 04:21:00 AMIn my experience, still the best recorded "Jeanne". It definitely is one of Honeggers great creations.
Quote from: vandermolen on February 12, 2023, 02:28:55 AMIt is certainly one of his greatest works Cesar.
Quote from: relm1 on February 14, 2023, 04:49:49 PMI thought very highly of Leopold Stowkoski's Symphony. Not really a symphony but a colorful and vibrantly orchestrated symphonic poem. Very French and Russian (complete with a Dies Irae) but extremely high quality. Just imagine if he poured his effort in to composition instead of conducting.

Quote from: Maestro267 on January 23, 2023, 09:07:41 AMA piece that's blowing me away as I write is Ravel's Piano Trio. This is my first listen and I am loving it. I didn't realize Ravel wrote as much chamber music as he did. But we have a full-sized string quartet, a piano trio, a violin sonata.
