Great Recordings and Reviews / Re: New Releases
« Last post by (: premont :) on Today at 03:08:57 PM »
The pedal clavichord recording is by Erik van Bruggen. But I forgot that there’s a beautiful clavichord recording of the sonata by Leonhardt no less.

By mistake I wrote "sonata" instead of suite. The Yoann Moulin recording contains the sonatina d-minor (usually performed on organ and BTW also recorded by Leonhardt on the Schnitger/Norden) and the suite c minor, the only two works of Ritter, I knew. However the suite Leonhardt plays on his clavicord recital CD (Philips) is listed as being in f sharp minor. So if this is authentic it must be another suite by Ritter. At IMSLP one can find free scores to the two suites without any editoral comments as to authenticy.

I ordered this:



Excited to check it out.

A great disc! I wish Rozhdestvensky had recorded more of her work.

Composer Discussion / Re: Gubaidulina's Canticle

Some of my favorite Gubaidulina works: Sieben Worte, Fachwerk, Viola Concerto, Pro et Contra, Offertorium, Music for Flute, Strings and Percussion, Piano Sonata, Garten von Freuden und Traurigkeiten and Alleluja. She was a difficult composer for me to get into because I didn't quite understand where she was coming from musically. Sometimes it takes awhile to assess a composer's style(s) and Penderecki was another one that took me quite some time to get into. She's not easy and her music doesn't fall on the ears like a velvet blanket, but I think she's an incredible composer and has a phenomenal ear for sonorities.

General Classical Music Discussion / Re: Purchases Today

From FNAC in Madrid:



Possibly (nay, very probably  ;)) more Saint-Saëns —34 CDs— than I’m willing to listen to, but the price was right, my interest in French music justifies a deeper exploration of the composer’s music and, who knows, I might be in for some pleasant surprises.  :)

Hurwitz covered the box:

I'm mortified to admit I have never heard the work and have no recording of it, despite an embarrassing large collection of classical CDs. :(
It's like 15 minutes long, vivacious, and full of horn calls. A delight, be happy you have such a well-made trifle yet to enjoy!

The real Miz.

I think this will keep me occupied for a few weeks.
