Quote from: André on November 20, 2021, 01:15:05 PMA terrific disc !...............................................................................Very good, but it pales beside Moralt's insanely intense interpretation. Has anyone ever found a similarity between the main theme (first heard on the solo trumpet) and the Agamemnon motto from Strauss' Elektra ? Listening to both works in succession made for a fascinating comparison.
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 20, 2021, 01:00:41 PMThere are Koechlin scores which inspire my enthusiasm, but somehow this is not one of them. It's not a disagreeable listen, of course. Part of it is: he wants to poke fun at other composers, well so what? Part of it is, I know I have no luck distinguishing between (say) the music of lesser composers imitating the greats of the 20th c. and Koechlin depicting the music of lesser composers imitating the greats of the 20th c. (see well so what? above) My ears are left with a joke whose point and execution both, I miss. And a piece which seems not to stand out to me.
Quote from: ritter on November 20, 2021, 01:47:33 PMI also have mixed feelings about Koechlin, but remember enjoying Les Bandar-Log. I should revisit the piece soon in light of your comments.But...did you like Boulez's Le soleil des eaux from the same CD? I think it is a really wonderful, sensuous piece! And good evening to you, Karl.

Quote from: vandermolen on November 20, 2021, 10:55:18 AMA great CD featuring my favourite craggy HB cover image. The performance of the epic Symphony No.10 is, if anything, more moving than the later recording with a professional orchestra on Dutton (although I wouldn't be without that one either).
Quote from: vandermolen on November 20, 2021, 11:01:23 AMThe LP release of that recording had a huge impact on my younger self - a marvellous performance of a great symphony.
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on November 20, 2021, 03:38:38 PMThe other day I was listening to this performance of the 3rd SQ as well, but I wasn't convinced. They lack certain rusticity this work needs to be more enjoyable, or at least for me anyway. Technically flawless, although with some lack of personality. The Melos Quartett and the Verdi Quartett are my reference recordings for these pieces.
