Vivaldi Concerto in D RV 208 "Il Grosso Mogul"
Hard to breathe new life into Vivaldi, but Kopatchinskaja gives it her best shot, exploring the limits of audibility in the process.

Warning: the whole album interleaves Vivaldi with new commissions in complementary style.   :-\  Interesting for a one-off, but that's about it.

I'm listening to downloads on presto classical first Josquin the Golden years of Renaissance real darn good and the new Beauty Farm on Fra Bernardo Pierre DE la Rue Masses vol 2. wow killing releases amen to this QUE please check it out, Mandryka I want your point of  view on new Pierre DE la Rue Masses Beauty Farm volume 2.

Maybe I do not search sufficiently, but as far I can see, it's The Sound and the Fury, which recently has released a CD with the title Pierre de la Rue Masses vol. 2, and not Beauty Farm.
As soon as a word has left the lips, not even the fastest horse can catch up with it.

Again, this lovely version of Stravinsky's Apollo, with l'Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France and conductor Daniel Harding. Of many fine versions, this live reading posted on YouTube in June 2020 must rank with the best.

Interesting.  No. 5 has never been my favorite of the concertos.  That would be No. 3.

I didn't make it all the way through even once.

I used to be intrigued by her recordings, now I'm starting to dread them.  There's the new Pierrot Lunaire in which she takes the solo part.  Hey, it's just sprechstimme, so why not.   ???

Same here, although Number 4 would challenge Number 3 very closely.

Brahms: Schicksalslied (Radio Filharmonisch Orkest / Groot Omroepkoor / Karina Canellakis) - Recorded on September 11, 2020 in Utrecht, and considering the date and the occasion, quite something.

Suk: Asrael Symphony.

Impressive in parts but a work I have difficulty coming to terms with.

Same here. It’s not one of Suk’s better works, IMHO.

Totally agree about your last two musical choices John. The Respighi 'Metamorphoseon' and Glazunov's 8th Symphony are two of their finest works and in magnificent performances. We don't agree, however, about Suk's 'Asrael' Symphony which I regard as a masterpiece (I especially like performances by Mackerras and Ashkenazy as well as the classic Tallich recording).
Now playing - NYM Symphony No.24 - one of the strongest of the cycle I think:
"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

Yes, indeed.  :) And I thought TSATF was disbanded - apparently not!

A keeper, or not.

CPE Bach.
Flute Concertos.
CD I.

Concerto in D minor-A minor-A major.

Eckart Haupt, Flute.
Kammerorchester CPE Bach, Hartmut Haenchen.
Christine Schornsheim, Harpsichord.
Recorded in 1985, Christuskirche, Berlin.


Of course these are not authentic performances, but done in a quasi period style. I have grown a little more tolerant of these hybrid performances. Its all tastefully done, no real offences here, save for a bit more legato, but vibrato is tolerably low in the orchestras framework. Sound is excellent.
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.

Sibelius violin/piano works from 1884-88.



I know I've tried this music before, none of it is really essential though my recollection is that some bits are better than others. Some of it's a bit fragmentary, but in that respect it's not nearly as bad as certain other albums in the BIS Sibelius series. The earliest work is actually the most substantial, an entire violin sonata (though the inner movements are a lot less interesting than the 1st).
