Listening to Haydn symphonies 93-95.
A lot of new recordings have appeared since the Dorati set, but it still holds its ground.
The first half of life is spent in longing for the second, the second half in regretting the first.

Quote from: Roasted Swan on February 29, 2024, 03:14:52 AMOne of the discs in the Chandos Winter Sale.  My finger hovered over the "buy" but I went for the Terterian instead!


I think that was a good choice.

Wrapping up a first listen of the whole set.  The more famous works sound good, but as with other comprehensive surveys, even with something like Schubert's piano sonatas, the value in this set is to be found in the lesser known works.

Yes, if you think of Ensemble Peregrina and Ensemble Dragma I agree completely.
Any so-called free choice is only a choice between the available options.

Quote from: Mandryka on February 29, 2024, 04:18:07 AMI just noticed one released in December called Vox Dilecti Mei, which I'll listen to later today hopefully.

I suppose most of this is monodic.

New one for me. Playlisted!

Thanks Harry :)

I have not seen anyone on GMG having an interest in this music, which is a bit of a mystery to me, for this composer has a distinctive voice. His compositions are not a run of the mill, but rather shows what a talent this man is, in writing accessible music in a context that is very much of this time.
Wit and serious lightness, musical eclecticism at its best. To try is to get wiser. Excellent performance and SOTA sound.

Avet Rubeni Terterian.
Orchestral Works. (See back cover)
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Kirill Karabits.
Recorded, 2019, The Lighthouse, Poole, Dorset.


Today I was alerted to the existence of this CD, but I found it to be in my library for quite some time now. On the basis of that I am listening now, and must say its an eerie experience in the first movement of the Symphony No.3 Quarter Note = 138-152. Definitely not for the weak hearted, which I am not, so no irritation in that quarter ;D
Will take me some time to get used too, but in the end I will get there, if I brace myself accordingly. And a fair warning to all before you start with this music, he  employs progressive elements such as twelve-tone technique and aleatorics. Just sayin.
SOTA sound.

Yes indeedy. So far in that series only the Wizlav von Rügen has really inspired me to listen again.

I will go through whole series on Tacet, and some loose threads on other labels. Looks to me an interesting journey, but the experts in this field of music, on GMG, probably know better what to listen to and what not, as poor uneducated me ;D  ;D

This does not appear to be that piece:

Dolcissima et Amorosa.
The Lute, Music of ll Divino Francesco Canova da Milano.
Volume I.
Recorded in 2014, I guess.
See back cover for details of works.
No PDF file with details.



Well, this is absolute delightful. Perfectly played and recorded. A pity that only 2 volumes of three are on Qobuz. Same label, but probably not their while to offer it to streamers globally. Grumpff.

You are right, Karl, it is not that piece. It's the Concertino, op. 27.

Here's the first movement (the erst are available on separate videos on YouTube):


Good day to you.

I was searching for a copy of the complete set earlier this morning. Prices are ridiculous. Hurwitz was spot on about an overdue reissue.

J.S. Bach Cello & Harpsichord Duo Recital János Starker, Zuzana Růžičková (Hänssler, 2015)
This pulled reissue came to my attention initially during a Růžičková-Bach search. The Starker solo cello pieces, particularly the Sarabande of Cello Suite No. 5 in C Minor stopped me in my tracks. But they're a nice tandem. Spotify YouTube
