Victor Herbert: Cello Concertos Nos. 1 & 2-Mark Kosower (cello)-Ulster Orchestra, JoAnn Falletta


The true adversary will inspire you with boundless courage.

Victoria: Tenebrae Responsories [Phillips/Tallis Scholars]





Tamquam ad latronem
Tenebrae factae sunt
Animam meam dilectam
Tradiderunt me
Iesum tradidit impius
Caligaverunt oculi mei

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.

Dvorak: Golden Spinning Wheel [Mackerras]





There is wonderful storytelling in this work. The sound pictures are marvellous. The orchestration and the resulting sonorities are terrific. The atmosphere of the work is also very engaging. The music also has a wonderful sweep to it and Mackerras delivers it all very well indeed.

Poulenc: Piano Music played by Eric Le Sage





From CD 4:

Aubade, concerto chorégraphique pour piano et dix-huit instruments [Le Sage/Deneve]

What I find most attractive in this work is the composition of the ensemble, the scoring for those varied instruments and the wonderful sonorities achieved with them. It is very exciting and engaging. The variety of music on offer in the work is also interesting and appealing.

Allan Pettersson (arranged by Eskil Hemberg): Suite from Barefoot Songs for Soprano & Chorus. Eskil Hemberg, Stockholm University Chorus, soprano Margareta Dahlstrom

Very beautiful, ethereal arrangements of six of the Barfotasånger, including the one that formed the basis of the Violin Concerto, "Herren går på ängen".

Krzysztof Penderecki: Symphony No.3. Antoni Wit, Polish National RSO

Revisiting for the first time in some two years. Sounds excellent.

The Netherlands is full of good organs and good organists -- a Vivialdi/Bach transcription in Maastricht, played by Joske Siebelink. Lovely to see this good film of the organ,

It is, totally agree, and fun to listen to.
Be kind, be friendly, but above all be human in a positive way.

Thank you for posting and of course you are right.

Kurt Atterberg: Symphony No.1 in B minor, op.3. Ari Rasilainen, Radio-Sinfonie-Orchester Frankfurt

Inspired by a random Amazon commenter who said something along the lines of "if you like Pettersson, try Atterberg!" I can't say I see much of a connection just yet beyond, obviously, the mutual Swedishness of the two, but it sounds fine so far. I know there are people here who really love this composer. I like what I've heard which is not much; I ordered this CD early in the summertime and haven't heard any of it yet.

It appears to be very attractive collection, although it not seems to be an out-of-print, relatively difficult to find item.

Mozart, Symphonies No 31, 32, Norrington, Stuttgart



Wonderfully energetic performances with prominent brass. Aside from the last 4, Mozart symphonies strike me as crowd pleasers, with a bit of Mozart magic dust sprinkled throughout.

Although I had this music by others, the comments and reviews on this Eric Le Sage offering impressed me, so I made a purchase at ArkivMusic - only $25 (plus S/H) - unfortunately the 6 discs are in a double jewel box (extra front and back flippable inserts), which was crack in several places and not useable - contacted their support and w/i a week I was sent a new 6-disc Jewel box WELL packed - if you don't currently own this music, the Le Sage performances are excellent and the packaging is a space-saver.  Dave :)
