Thomas Tomkins

It's a long time ago that I listened to this recording,I really love the Anthems.The Naxos recording with Red Byrd and the Rose Viols is even better.Thou art my King,O lord  is only one of the treasures on this disc wich I will listen to later this day.

Richard Wagner.

Orchestral Works.

Overtures to "Das Liebesverbot", & "Die Feen".
Tristan and Isolde, and Orchestral Passion.
Arranged by Henk de Vlieger.

Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Neeme Jarvi.


Without the vocal contributions it is much better, at least for me.

Not looking at this thread for nearly a week was dangerous. I had to skip about 30 pages worth...

Between Clarke and Taverner, time enough to give this a second listen



As with the Clarke, I like what I hear even if I am not sure how to describe it to others.

I've heard too little Brouwer: What I have heard, I've enjoyed very much.

I've got that one somewhere, it's a long while since I listened to it.

I seem to remember it as being one of those early cases of reviews (Penguin Guide?) saying "hey, Naxos is cheap and good!"

Alexander Brincken.

Orchestral Music Volume I.

Symphony No. 4 & Capriccio for Piano and Chamber Orchestra.

Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Rainer Held.
Alexander Brincken, Piano.


Fascinating, both works! Your right Jeffrey the music draws you in, and makes it hard work to get out.

Those guys are great. Have you heard this recording?



I heard them in concert a few years ago--they played Brouwer's "Sonata de los viajeros " from that recording--a 30-minute tour-de-force!

Nice disc!

Second piece in this disc, Chamber Symphony No 3.



I found this strikingly unsatisfactory. What seems like a large fraction of the music is played in a hush that I find basically inaudible if I set the volume so that the loud passages are at a confortable "concert volume" level. Probably the performers pride themselves on playing such a controlled pianississississimo, but what's the point if I can't hear anything?

I have another recording of this piece on the Claves label, maybe I'll venture to listen to that and see if I do any better.

Six dollars that I could have spent on a fancy latte, down the drain. :)

You ain't heard nothing until you've heard Solti with the London Philharmonic (Decca, mono recording). :)
