Pijper was mentioned on another thread, and I had never heard of him, but his first symphony was Mahler-influenced, so I'm listening to it right now.

Pijper- Symphony 1

An evening run with this disc. First acquaintance with Paderewski - what an excellent pianist! :)

I somehow had the expectation that he would be an over-the-top Romantic, but none of that.

Did I mention before that the transfers in the ASV historical series are excellent? Pity they focus mainly on the usual repertoire everybody else has done - the Weingartner Brahms symphonies being an (important) exception.

Now playing CD1 from the following twofer, a recent arrival for a first listen ...



That must be absolutely yummy!  :) It has been lingering (high) on my wish list for some time now.. ::)


First listen
CD VI, of this set, of which I must say, exceeded my expectations far into the realm of Vocal heaven. Why on earth I had so many misgivings about Paul van Nevel is beyond me, but stems from a recording I heard many years ago which unsettled me into misgivings. Probably a bad potato I had eaten, yes that must be it! ;D
Well again the singing is precise and well in balance, in fact that excellent, that I know not many choirs reach this perfection. The sound is always matching. The music on this CD impressed me by its originality, and wonderful harmonies, creating a warm involvement, and must have made quite a impression in his time. Wonderful.

Matthaeus Pipelare. ( 1450-1515), Miss "L homme arme", Chansons-Motets. Recorded in 1995.



I'm so glad that - amongst other things - my enthusiasm for this set has won you over, Harry! :) For anyone interested, my own comments on the disc are found HERE.

Ballet music:
MESSAGER Les Deux Pigeons - suite,  Isoline - suite
(I saw the "Pigeons" at the Sadlers Wells several years ago, it had two very well trained pigeons, probably an impediment to the work being more widely performed)
HAHN  Le Bal de Béatrice d'Este
Orchestre de Paris      /Jean-Pierre Jacquilllat
KHACHATURIAN     Spartacus  excerpts from Act 2 and the Adagio from Act 3
USSR State Radio Orch.      /Alexander Gauk
