Obviously not that stuff. I meant of the albums listed, I have all but two.
This may be the only Rudolf Baumgartner's box in my collection. The soloists were quite outstanding from the 1960's and 70's ...
I see now
The recent "There Is No More Firmament" is brilliant (another chamber work disk, some current Zorn concert pieces from that disk that a few ensembles are currently touring, I enjoyed the hell outta that one!)
More on Elgar's graduation music ..
Elgar's march was used for the coronation of King Edward VII. It first became associated with graduations in 1905, when it was played when Elgar received an honorary doctorate from Yale University in 1905, but it was played as a recessional, not as a processional, at the ceremony.
Or, better known around these parts as the "George Washington Bridge Song".
Lutoslawski's infectious Symphony no 3:
CD 55 on Spotify Premium.
Ravel: Daphnis et Chloé, M. 57
I don't often play Beethoven's first two symphonies, so this morning I'm going to revisit the 2nd. This is Antal Dorati leading the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. My notes from a previous playing indicate a "fine performance of No. 2, but a really superb Prometheus overture!"
This is a Mercury "Golden Imports" record, made in the Netherlands, from around the mid-70's.
Did not know a thing about this guy. I was intrigued by the striking cover presentation of this box. Went on YouTube and listened to a selection of his solo recordings. Went online to order this box from the Moose (and also the prior 5xCD box of complete concerto recordings from ImportCDs.) Hey, I'm impulsive like that.
Congratulations. So far I've listened to two of the CDs and really enjoyed them. Hope you will two. Thanks for the tip about the concerto box.
Good morning everyone! On the TT....before we take of to the start of this summer dollar sale at the local used records store. YAyyyyy
So glad you invested in acquiring his work. I've been lucky to know him since I was very young and see him in concert as well.
I'm sneaking up there one day and buying everything, mmmmmwwwwahahahahahaha!
100k records for $1 each... I'm envious! Sounds like heaven. Have fun!
Putting my favorite Brahms concerto on the TT. This is one of my favorite recordings of it, with Geza Anda and Ferenc Fricsay.
Recorded in May, 1960. Germany.
Does it take that long to cross the GW? I hate crossing that bridge in the mid afternoon when I returned home in Westchester NY from work in Newark. I chose the Garden State then Tapanzee instead ...
I think I have a very limited number of LP's by him ...
Completed listening to the last few movements on the above CD and the following CD over this morning 2-mile walk. Listening for the rest of today will be in the air-conditioned music room ...
Will need to give this CD a second spin as I was not too impressed on the first listen ...
I do like Veronique Gens have seen her live a few times
A lot of Yepes's concerto recording recently reappeared on stereo/quad SACD, for those interested.
