Quote from: SonicMan46 on June 03, 2018, 02:33:41 PMBOY! Julius Röntgen (1855-1932) - looking through this short thread, I have just one post back in 2009 and must have just started to collect his wide variety of recordings - one of my interests, as a retired radiologist, was his relationship to Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, discoverer of X-rays - indeed they were distant cousins (see first pice below - Source) - I now have 10 CDs of this composer (listed in the quote) - one has an interesting cover w/ a chest X-ray. Now, I've not listened to these in a while but have pulled out the stack and will in the upcoming days. Thanks for the reminder - Dave
Quote from: SonicMan46 on May 04, 2020, 11:29:22 AMWell, now reviewing and listening to my modest collection of Julius Röntgen's works - last time mentioned (2nd quote at bottom) was nearly 2 years ago in this thread when I had 10 CDs - now I am up to 15 discs (1 MP3) (first quote) - I've been starting w/ mainly the chamber works (7 of the 8 shown below) - attached are numerous reviews of nearly all of these recordings for those interested and just wondering what to purchase first (or stream - many Röntgen albums are available on Spotify).I'm enjoying all of these performances; the first 2 CDs shown are great 'starters' w/ excellent reviews - love the Lendvai Trio gals but would probably recommended the middle two volumes. The Storioni Trio is also quite good and there is a 2nd volume. Julius was a long-lived and prolific composer w/ well over 600 works to his credit - a detailed list can be found HERE - will post my remaining recordings in my next entry - not sure that I want to add much more (maybe the 2nd Storioni Trio recording)? BUT, much is missing, e.g. String Quartets (he wrote about 20 according to the link) and his solo piano works (on Amazon, 4 volumes are listed w/ Mark Anderson). Dave
Quote from: mc ukrneal on May 04, 2020, 11:34:34 AMGreat Stuff. I've been interested in those piano volumes. Maybe next time presto has a sale on those downloads, I'll consider it...

Quote from: Symphonic Addict on September 05, 2023, 06:11:05 PMI decided to explore his chamber music and the journey began with his First Cello Sonata in B-flat major, and I have to say it's a most phenomenal work! I wasn't expecting to be that good taking into account it is a relatively early work (from 1872-73). Both the piano and the cello have inspired writing and the same importance, the dialogue between two instruments make a quite compelling listen. Looking forward to the rest of these pieces.
