Quote from: Artem on June 30, 2022, 12:07:28 PMThis disk was my introduction to Strauss music, specifically the Alpine Symphony. Not an easy piece to enjoy for me on the basis of a single listen. Maybe it's not an especially good version?
Quote from: VonStupp on June 30, 2022, 11:16:00 AMDave, I know The Unknown Strauss 15-CD collection filled in some orchestral holes for me, although not all of it is 'unknown', and Rickenbacher is not a favorite Straussian of mine.Of course, each were released separately for picking and choosing so you can avoid the operas and choral music.VS
Quote from: SonicMan46 on June 30, 2022, 04:12:28 PMThanks VS - I've looked at the 15-disc box which would more that double my collection of Strauss - not sure that I want much more that already owned - I'd like to explore his 'piano music' but not sure if there is more that a couple of worthwhile discs and uncertain of the 'best' performances. Comments much appreciated - Dave
Quote from: Jo498 on June 30, 2022, 11:24:12 PMI am pretty sure the "Unknown R. Strauss" would be a bit much for a casual fan... I didn't even know there was solo piano music, this is a tiny niche within a niche of youthful/unknown works.According to your lists you are already rather well provided with some of the rather unknown chamber pieces. As mentioned above, I am still not sure if you have two major pieces, the Burleske and the violin sonata (often coupled with non-Strauss). And IF you like tone poems, make sure to try the lesser known ones such as Macbeth, Sinfonia Domestica or the earlyish suite/tone poem "Aus Italien" (From Italy).You already know that you are missing the more important half of Strauss if you cannot get into opera (or lieder).
Quote from: VonStupp on July 01, 2022, 05:16:05 AMNot even I invested in all of these 'unknown' works. Mostly to fill out some vocal/orchestral numbers I wanted. VS
Quote from: hvbias on September 22, 2022, 04:10:12 PMI'm looking to explore some more performances of Salome if anyone has suggestions. I have Solti and Karajan.
Quote from: DavidW on February 16, 2023, 01:03:55 PMThat is a great set. All around great performances in excellent 70s analog.
