Quote from: Harry on April 19, 2007, 07:07:58 AMNot much in my collection from this composer but this one is recent.Have not given it a spin yet.
Quote from: Captain Haddock on April 19, 2007, 06:30:31 AMYes, it is v good. I have both the piano and orchestral versions. I like "Visions and Prophecies" piano version of "Voice in the Wilderness" on Chandos. Do you know it?

Quote from: aquariuswb on April 19, 2007, 08:11:44 AMNo, I don't, but perhaps I'll check it out. In the mean time, here is a file I just uploaded of my girlfriend playing "Poems of the Sea" at our piano recital last year (the file will expire after 7 days): http://download.yousendit.com/AC20170D0E1129AC
Quote from: Corey on April 04, 2008, 02:58:41 PMAre there any recordings of his complete string quartets?
Quote from: vandermolen on April 04, 2008, 03:09:37 PMThere is a very fine Decca Oriinal Masters CD of string quartets 1-4 (he wrote 5) played by the Griller Quartet. They recorded them before Bloch wrote No 5 but there are other recordings of it. String Quartet No 1 is one of Bloch's finest utterances, lasting almost one hour. I strongly recommend this set.http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bloch-String-Quartets-Griller-Quartet/dp/B000276K3M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1207350610&sr=1-1
Quote from: Daverz on April 04, 2008, 03:20:34 PMThe Pro Arte Quartet recorded them all for Laurel Records, and these are all currently in print. I ordered them directly from Laurel Records. Oddly, the recording of 5 seems to be in mono, at least to my ears. I guess they recorded it that way live and decided to wax it as is. I should add that otherwise the production quality is very high.http://www.laurelrecord.com/
Quote from: Corey on April 04, 2008, 03:30:07 PMYes, I knew about that recording, but I was looking for one with all 5. How is the sound on this set?Thanks!
Quote from: vandermolen on April 04, 2008, 04:24:11 PMThey are mono recordings from 1954 but very effectively remastered.
Quote from: erato on April 04, 2008, 11:58:01 PMThe Griller set is one of the absolute essential string quartet sets and Blochs 1sr quartet is a staggering work.I would like to direct you all to this blog entry (read a little down the page) with some interesting information on both Bloch and the Grillers:http://www.overgrownpath.com/2006/11/schoenberg-on-toscanini.html
