Quote from: OrchestralNut on Today at 09:14:38 AMI know next to nothing about Hovhaness, but isn't there a Whale Symphony?
Quote from: Papy Oli on Today at 09:09:24 AMI have enjoyed his No.1 and No.50 earlier, his Cello concerto on the other hand didn't really work for me. I'll need to try his 2nd symphony as well. Thank you again for those pointers.
Quote from: foxandpeng on Today at 08:47:11 AMI love both of these pieces. Great choices. I have a deep affection for 22, in particular.
Quote from: Harry on Today at 06:35:02 AMWilliam Byrd.
Leon Berben plays on th the Historical Organ At Oosthuizen (C.1521)
Recorded in May 2007 in the Grote Kerk, Oosthuizen, The Netherlands.
Octaaf 4 (doubled from a' onwards)
Mixtuur II – III
Sexquialter Diskant II
Compass: F, G, A – g'', a''
Mean-tone temperament, a' = 465 Hz.
During the 2002-3 restoration, the pipe-work was
carefully re-examined and restored with great care. The
note markings on the pipes bear the handwriting of
organ-makers that suggests the assembly was the work of
Pieter Backer, active around 1670. He seems to have
used and combined parts of other organs, perhaps those
previously in the churches of Monnickendam, Hoorn
Frankly I never heard many of the recorded works on this disc played on the Organ, but it works, maybe not in all the works, but as a whole its reveling and well argued. The Organ is a beautiful instrument, pure and well tuned. The Pitch: a'= 465 Hz, so it will be a bit strenuous on the ears, albeit not in such a way that it bothers me much, but it can bite in a few pieces on this disc. Berben makes a feast out of it, by playing Byrd's music almost lovingly on this Renaissance organ.
