Good to see you enjoying some Roussel, Jeffrey! Great stuff!

Thread duty:

Schoenberg
String Trio, Op. 45
Richard O'Neill (viola), Fred Sherry (cello), Rolf Schulte (violin)




The String Trio is certainly one of my favorite Schoenberg chamber works. Never fails to intrigue me.

That is a terrific set. The music is unquestionably good but the performances are powerful.

Superb set IMO, occupying a fine position amongst my many sets.

There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Surprised you don’t own the Borodin Quartet’s set on Melodiya, Jan. This has been my go-to for these SQs for years, although I don’t listen to much Shostakovich these days.

Listening to the Sorabji remains a work-in-progress for me, but I seem always to enjoy myself.

More on Spotify:

 

Following Que's lead again w/ Jean-Marie Leclair - listening to the Spotify playlist (inserted above) of recordings not in my collection although some of the works are, e.g. Op. 7 & Op. 10 - still could not find the Daniel Cuiller recording on my Spotify app - saw it on the link given previously but was 'empty' for me - maybe an issue on how Spotify operates 'across the pond' - don't know.  Dave :)

I bought these Quartets with the Pacifica Quartet because of the enthusiastic reviews, I go crazy when I have to have everything in multiple recordings of every interesting piece of music. I am interested in all styles of music where the romantic period in general is at the very back of my interest.
I pay more attention to "modern music" than ever before.
There are periods when I change my listening preferences and mainly listen to early music or start listening to all Bach cantatas again.
I have a good musical memory, but to know all the cantatas after having heard them only once, no that is impossible although it is surprising how much sticks.
When I listen to a mass I try to do that regardless of its liturgical context, only what sounds in relation to the degree to which I am receptive is decisive.
Paul van Nevel would be horrified by the idea that his many recordings of "religious music" are a service act different from strictly the music itself.
So I am looking more for a certain purity in the music that can have many guises, it must be more than just a way of relaxing if it is to transcend a certain everydayness.
You cannot relate to music if you do not also examine yourself and you will find that there is little that is immutable.
Sometimes you are so captivated by the music that it totally throws you off your feet, makes the blood flow faster and you get a "total experience". This is the most beautiful thing that can happen to you and you cannot control it.
You can say, well they are only vibrations, but then you have never really listened or encountered what the sounds suggest or can evoke.
There are psychologists who say that someone who listens to the music of a folk singer can experience the same thing as myself when listening to a Bach cantata.  :o
I hope it's not complete nonsense

Shostakovich: String Quartet No.2

First time I've heard the Pavel Haas play this quartet, which was my first favourite of his I think (I was subsequently rather surprised at the low opinion some people seemed to have of it). I must say I don't think I've ever heard the Adagio 2nd movt. played so affectingly, the other movements none too shabby either. Their playing always seems to teem with character, offered up with Dickens-like vividness, really an excellent and very involving recording.  :)

A first listen to Delibes earlier today. Really enjoyed that. I think a recording of those will find its way in my collection at some point.

To one of my favorite obscure composer Philip Van Wilder active in London U.K. An anoter one Notker Balbulus  after one of our first know theoric music teacher , composer, monk of St.Gallen, Swiss.

After classical I will submit to ''classical non-classic origin'' but at time symphonicc, From Swiss too Celtic Frost albums, Morbid Tales, Into Mega Therion, Vanity/Nemesis or Monotheist that a great album hey. but non-classical.

Not a metal head but like C.F  8)

Delibes' ballets are marvelous. Glad you enjoyed it, Olivier.

Merulo Motets on Brilliant , wwhat a great ''motetist''.
Succh harmony and melody, RICH instrumentation is sweet, whit viola Da Gamba, violone, TheoRbo, organ.

I forgot this release long enough and Merulo works in general, than there is also great Giaches De Wert, focus on them , also Josquin, Ockeghem all musician to take very serriaously, this morning I would listen to Sigismondo D'India of palermo Sicily, italy whit an album called D'India, Mottetti, very good album, staggering, riveting, captivation, this is sensational better believe it, goodnight to all , sleep well.
