Charles Ives
Three Places in New England
New England Holidays
They Are There!

Baltimore Symphony Orchestra & Chorus
David Zinman


Zinman and Baltimore are a little too gentle with this music, but it is a decent recording of Ives' homage to his home.



Interesting.

Do I remember this 'Ilya Muromets' having cuts?

Ach! Ormandy!

The Viola Sonata (arr. from his Clarinet Sonata) is a real stunner. I dare to say it sounds better on the viola.

Kodály: Sonata for solo cello

This work has its reputation very well gained. One of the crowning achievements for solo cello music. The performance is just flawless.




Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 2

The 1st movement possesses a sort of bittersweet lyricism, whilst the 2nd one is sweeter, even tender. I didn't recall how magical that movement is. The final movement contains the pyrotechnics of the whole work, but it's the least interesting overall.

Fabulous piece & execution (the Kodály)! I love the last mvt of the Prokofiev g minor vn cto!
