Quote from: Roasted Swan on June 22, 2024, 11:47:59 AMWow 17 long discs of Reger Organ Music - that is devotion to duty!  The one piece of Reger's organ music I have in my collection is "Variations and Fugue on "Heil Dir Im Siegerkranz" (God Save the King)".....

I have high expectations of these organ works by Max Reger. The first CD I that I have listened to clearly aroused high expectations. I'm especially looking forward to the Choral Fantasien. :)

Haha. No sorry required! I need to have an extended exploration of Brian's symphonies to increase my appreciation. I've listened to all of them in fits and starts over the years but they have sat pretty patchily with me, really. I guess that's inevitable with such a large output.

I remember that in Hermann Hesse's Demian, there was a brief scene an organist at a church played Reger's piece. Hesse may have liked Reger's music. At least HH knew about Max Reger.

I've been eagerly awaiting this new recording. As Mandryka mentioned: excellent!

Mahler: Symphony No. 2

Initial impressions were pleasant enough and the vocal and choral sections made a good contrast, will listen to it again at some point 8) .


Mandryka

Just finished a concert -- Wihan Quartet playing a couple of Haydn pops in London this afternoon, The Emperor and The Lark. Upholstered Rolls Royce luxury blend sound, good cellist, utterly boring music making for me, I thought I would die of boredom.

What to say about Hildegard's music, connoisseurs know what to expect. It is beautifully performed here.

Hah!  "pleasant enough" seems like rather damming faint praise for a work that should surely be literally raising the dead!!!!

I'm not sure the dead care much about Mahler.

I think a work called resurrection is about raising the dead - no??!!
