Mozart: Violin Concerto No. 3 K 216 [Brown/Academy of St. Martin in the Fields]


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

Der Tod Jesu is a Passion oratorio written by Kraus (words and music) in the pietistic tradition. The music is sturm und drangish, with influences from Gluck and C.P.E. Bach. There are 14 movements, mostly accompanied recitative+aria, some powerful choruses, and a couple of short orchestral interludes. At 45 minutes it breezes by very nicely. The disc is filled with 2 short cantatas and 2 movements from a Te Deum, a collaborative project celebrating the 1788 naval victory of the Swedes vs the Russians. Kraus was responsible for the last two movements. Despite the absence of the rest of the work, what we get is high powered and quite rousing.

Disc one of this set:



Busoni seems to pick up where Liszt left off in terms of exploring the limits of tonality. I am also reminded of Reger in his seriousness of purpose and fondness for the world of german chorales and the music of Bach. I have 2 discs of Bach transcriptions by Busoni on the Arts label (Pietro Spada) as well as another one by Egon Petri playing Bach transcriptions and the Fantasia Contrappunstitica (a sort of homage to Bach’s Art of Fugue). This set by Hamelin is the first I know to centre on Busoni’s own works and ideas. Only BV 40 and 253 from this set are Bach-related. Hugely engrossing stuff. The disc ends in typical Hamelin fashion with the Giga, bolero e variazione.

My exploration of a few Bach Cello Suites recordings was interrupted, but I did begin this one recently ...



... and then turned it off, bored, before it was over. I'm sure it was just my mood; I know many think highly of this rendition.

I'll return to it later. I think I may turn to the Watkin recording next, where Madiel has been spending time lately. I heard many good things about it when it was released, so it's time I heard it.

First listens



Two of the most beautiful cello and violin sonatas I've ever heard, with slow movements to die for.



Splendid as well. Among the finest piano music I've ever heard.

Good morning all,

First listen as well : Patrick Hadley - Trees so high.

Absolutely gorgeous. Loved the 3rd movement (vivace) particularly.

Worth your while I think. Obviously I've been conveying that already...

As for Wispelwey III, I didn't find it as engaging as Wispelwey II when I was doing my initial rounds of sampling.

Debussy, Le Printemps



My replacement CD arrived (for the horrific version Amazon tried to sell me). Booklet is only in French but I'll take it, for good sound quality. In fact it sounds quite luscious.

Though the tenors are undeniably flat at one point!

How does it compare to the Beenhouwer set, which apparently is more complete?

Susanne Grutzmann, brings more warmth to Clara's music, and the details are more refined. In the end she gives me more the impression that she is deeply committed to this music. Beenhouwer however has different qualities. But for my money its Grutzmann.

And by the way this set has 4 CD''s, so it probably is more complete as Beenhower, but I will dig this out of my collection and check.
