Quote from: Daverz on April 07, 2023, 06:35:45 PMBarati, George: I have one CD on CRI. One of the works was recorded by Ormandy and Philadelphia. As I recall, his music is neo-Classical and motivic, perhaps a bit "standard" for that era, but pretty good.

Quote from: Mapman on April 14, 2023, 03:28:21 PMBeach: Gaelic Symphony, Op. 32Järvi: DetroitThe first movement seemed fairly average for a romantic symphony of its time. However, the other three movements gave me a more positive impression. The highlight of my first listen was the 2nd movement, an interesting slow movement/scherzo hybrid, which has a wonderful duet for oboe and English horn. There's other lovely woodwind writing, including a bass clarinet solo in the 3rd movement. I'm glad I finally listened to this.

Quote from: VonStupp on April 16, 2023, 05:41:03 AMBolcom has 2CD's worth of piano rags, the best found on Hyperion in my opinion. I find them interesting, but your mileage may vary. Also, his Songs of Innocence and Experience, despite its 3 hours, received a fair shake with Slatkin on Naxos. Otherwise, I never really got on with his symphonies, but leaned towards his cabaret songs with his wife. An eclectic musical voice, for sure.VS

Quote from: Papy Oli on April 16, 2023, 02:03:57 AMAlso yesterday:Amy Beach - "Gaelic" symphony: pleasant overall but not much more than that for me.John Adams - Harmonium: Felt a bit wishy-washy, didn't grab my attention at all.
Quote from: Karl Henning on April 18, 2023, 06:50:56 AMI find Amy Beach's chamber music much more engaging.
Quote from: Papy Oli on April 18, 2023, 07:01:14 AMNoted @Karl Henning , I'll try further. The recs included "piano quintet, Piano Trio, Violin Sonata". Any favourite of yours ?
