That's the one I ordered
There's some Couperin available on Spotify. Couldn't find any Rameau. Don't recall about Scarlatti.
A review of Grimaud on Water.
From what can be seen in the picture, she seems to be wearing some elegant platform shoes suitable for the "subdued sloshing" necessary for the pianist to get to the instrument. I would love to hear the program, but unfortunately I have not a bit of it, except for the Ravel (Casadesus).
Did you see the concert John?
Speaking of the Grimaud recital, I remember Luciano Berio (and Cathy Berberian) being a hot topic back in my college days, but now almost nothing. I have nothing by him on my shelf...
Sylvius Leopold Weiss – Lute Works, Vol.1 — Lutz Kirchhof, baroque lute & theorbo lute (Vivarte / Sony Classical)
Now: Dvořák: Symphony 7, Op.70; Elgar: Enigma Variations, Op.36 - Pierre Monteux/London Symphony Orchestra - Decca/Eloquence
I'm going a week from Sunday.
By the way, judged purely as a concert event, I'm paying $45 to see one of today's leading pianists - that's not bad.
The amount of lute music Weiss produced is astonishing.
I'm a huge fan of hers, but this strikes me as extremely gimmicky. Maybe it was better in person.
Is Dorian still in business? It has produced a number of excellent recordings over the years ...
I love the performances of Cto No. 2, 4 and 6. There are few recordings out there that can surpass these performances, HIP or not ...
Looks like she is the new goddess of piano, taking over from Martha ...
It's an art installation. Music is part of it. Hardly uncommon. Live performance by a major artist is considerably rarer.
Now's a good time to buy used classical music CDs. I just purchased 20 Telarcs for $50 shipped! The shipping was way more than the discs themselves.
This should be an interesting conversation - which major artists whose live performance have we attended?
Dorian is no longer.
Another review (with multiple photos):
New York Magazine's Vulture page was less enthusiastic. Such is the norm with art.
What a great conductor Monteux was. I'm really looking forward to the new big Monteux RCA box that's just come out here.
soloists? conductors? Orchestras? or all?
Last week I bought this record. I'm a big Argerich fan, but I haven't had the chance to listen to it yet. Any thoughts a forum member could share with me?
Who took over Dorian's catalog? Dorian was a bit player that its demise was not even widely known ...
All of the above.
IIRC, Neville Marriner studied conducting under Pierre Monteux somewhere in Maine, USA.
