Quote from: vers la flamme on March 15, 2023, 02:01:30 PMInterested in this revival of enthusiasm in Bacewicz's work. I have had the set of her string quartets on Chandos for years, and I always enjoy revisiting them. Have not heard anything else. Is there a best place to go next? The violin concertos on Chandos look good.

Quote from: OrchestralNut on March 17, 2023, 04:38:25 AMSecond listen to this marvelous disc! A recommendation for @vers la flamme Confession: The Concerto for String Orchestra, upon the very first time I heard the opening notes to it (and in turn the first notes I had ever heard from this composer), four years ago, signalled that I would be one day exploring this composer's music. Okay, so I am late in following up on this, but better late than never. Four years ago, I had listened to a YouTube performance in preparation for my local symphony orchestra's presentation in concert the following day. I really enjoyed the work and it made an immediate impression on me.
Quote from: Løvfald on March 20, 2023, 05:23:32 PMThere's an increasing interest in Bacewicz by several record labels lately, and the more, the better, more so if they are first recordings.
Quote from: Maestro267 on March 10, 2023, 08:10:09 AMThanks for solving this mystery. I wonder if it exists or has been lost.

Quote from: Franco_Manitobain on May 04, 2023, 05:35:00 AMI'm finally getting around to listening to this disc, and it is outstanding! I'm particularly floored by the 3rd symphony (Dramatic, jaunty, lively, a great mix of heaviness and lightness!). This is great music, and I cannot wait for Borowicz and CPO to release Symphonies 1 and 2! The plan is apparently a three volume set of symphonic works.
Quote from: Harry on May 04, 2023, 05:38:47 AMI did not expect any other reaction as the one you wrote. I believe I was the first one that sung her praises on GMG, regarding this release, and still am duly impressed. As to the follow ups, I am always a bit apprehensive in this regard, since CPO to often stopped series that were supposed to go on with several follow ups. But lets be optimistic.
Quote from: Franco_Manitobain on May 25, 2023, 05:11:01 AMJust finished listening to this marvelous disc of solo piano music, featuring Peter Jablonski.I really should stop being surprised by how good it is, because I keep waiting to be disappointed by something Bacewicz wrote, but it hasn't happened yet. In fact, the Concert Krakowiak has become an instant favourite work of hers.For those who might have a pre-conceived notion (admittedly like myself) that a female composer's music might be more dainty, prettier, lighter hearted, etc......Bacewicz' music will smash that notion.Bacewicz' music in general, is one I would describe as high octane, energetic, muscular, propulsive. In the vein of middle period Beethoven muscularity. It's just fabulous. She really knew how to write for both the piano and violin.
Quote from: Spotted Horses on May 25, 2023, 05:19:12 AMI've listened to the Kupiec disc of solo piano music and it was superb. I hope to make my way to this disc as well.
Quote from: Franco_Manitobain on May 25, 2023, 05:21:05 AMKupiec is on my wish list. Both for solo piano and the piano/violin music.
