Quote from: Guido on March 14, 2009, 03:15:32 PMHave been listening to these Symphonies again recently as well as the violin concerto - these are just fantastic works.I would be very keen to hear the concerto for viola, piano and winds - has anyone got that CD? Also I really want to find the missing cello concerto now!
Quote from: snyprrr on March 15, 2009, 01:19:43 PMHarry, you said the SQs were "daily fare." Being as I'm mostly into SQs at the moment and have been mulling over Hartmann, can you give me any go through? I hear the 2nd is the better. I started the Pfitzner thread to get some thoughts on the last generation of the German romantics (I mean as opposed to Stockhausen, that is): Schmidt, Pzitzner, Hartmann, Hindemith, Eisler, Weill. Can't think of anyone else.I take it Blacher would fit more with the younger generation.always saved that Hartmann/Metz box for a rainy afternoon...
Quote from: edward on March 15, 2009, 11:26:01 AMI'd love to get hold of that CD, but so far it has proven elusive. I'll keep looking, though.Have you heard Schneiderhan/Kubelik live on Orfeo in the violin concerto? For me, it blows other recordings out of the water--amazing intensity.
Quote from: edward on May 08, 2009, 11:54:28 AMA new Hartmann recording that looks mighty tempting, out soon:http://www.mdt.co.uk/MDTSite/product/NR_June09/WER67142.htmBenjamin Schmid in the Concerto funebre might be something special, not to mention the less well-known works here.

Quote from: Harry on April 17, 2007, 07:46:00 AMThanks Don, it seems there is a consensus about the Metzmacher.

Quote from: snyprrr on May 22, 2012, 07:46:45 PMCPO vs Nimbus in the String QuartetsAnyone?I'm happy with Nimbus, haven't heard CPO.
Quote from: jlaurson on May 23, 2012, 03:17:02 AMNeither contain the two Concertinos for string quartet... but for just SQ4ts 1 & 2, I say stick with the Vogler over the Pellegrini's (fine though they also are).
Quote from: snyprrr on May 23, 2012, 08:54:35 AMThanks! I really like Hartmann's SQs here. They really satisfy the need for a "post-war" German perspective, Pfitzner seemingly representing the "even more" depressed ethos (though his Late music tends more towards "Mozart" (Schubert?), rather than Hartmann's more "Beethovanian" take?).I am slowly finding the high points of the 1940s SQs. I like the Hindemith 5-6 (or 6-7,...if you include...), the Chavez 3, Vaughn Williams 2, Malipiero 5, Hartmann 2,... surely others (Myaskovsky, though different,... DSCH 4-6,... Prokofiev 2)... they all have an accumulated nobility, a certain standard of received pathos (minor ninth/major seventh?,... very Stravinskian?)...Forgive me, but I DO seek out works forged by horror... Bridge's Piano Trio No.2 being my most famous example... would love to hear more (but only for the right reasons of course!!)Shostakovitch + Hindemith = Hartmann?? (just in these SQs?)
