Now on the TT, a 1974 Columbia Masterworks album of Murray Perahia playing Chopin: Sonata No.2 and Sonata No.3.
It is worth noting that Perahia has written extensive liner notes for the LP jacket wherein he describes the more prominent structural features of each movement, in each sonata, and the reasoning behind his approach in playing them. This included researching Chopin's original manuscripts to sort out what changes publishers had made from what the composer had actually written. A fascinating read which adds appreciably to deeper understanding of these works--and particularly Perahia's performance--while listening to the album. I wish more performers did this.
Now streaming on Spotify, "Into the Labyrinth" performed by Sarband on World Of Sarband.
Never heard this before, and am not sure exactly where it fits on the music spectrum, but it's 'early' music, so...
I haven't even opened my copy yet
I'm not much of a fan of Elgar's music so that would have probably delayed me buying another classical album for years.
On the TT....
Now on the turntable, "Tchaikovsky - The Seasons" performed by Brigitte Engerer on Philips.
Chant Sans Paroles
Continuation of the Fournier I listened to last week (1-4), now playing 5 and 6 by Starker. Even on the non-full range ESL57 there is amazing depth of sound, I plan to replace these with Vivid Giya G2 or G3, the former the most neutral speakers I've heard besides Revel Salons
Now on the turntable, "Dvorak - Czech Suite/Serenade" performed by The Musica Aeterna Orchestra led by Frederic Waldman on Decca.
It is almost a certainly that @bluemooze has this LP ...
This SACD twofer is worth some $$ these days. I have the recordings in the following mercury box ...
The best performance of these works is actually on the following twofer ...
Come on, you need that graduation procession music. IIRC, Yale was the first school in the US playing that piece and the recent South Korean presidential inauguration also used the piece ...
Kubelik excelled in works by Dvorak and Smetana ...
I certainly would have it if I had ever come across it.
The 'George Washington Bridge' song.
Now on the turntable, "Mahler Symphony No. 5/Adagio (Symphony No. 10)" performed by the Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by Bernard Haitink on Philips.
A semi- cheesecake cover from 1984. Music by Couperin, Widor, Vierne & Guillou. From Vogt Quality Recordings of Needham, MA. Recorded & mastered by Robert A. Vogt. Ms. Long is also a pianist, harpist & soprano and is available for weddings.
I used to walk past the St. Paul's Chapel almost everyday but had never gone in ...
1984... and the label still feels it necessary to assure that it is "compatible stereo."
Yes, I noticed that & the catchy "Stereo" logo. It's a good sounding record.
Soooo... what is that? Gilels plays Beethoven sonatas?
Sonata No. 8 D Minor Op 13 "Patetieskya"
Sonata No. 14 D flat Minor Op.27 "Eunnya"
My Russian is better than I thought. Shouldn't sonata no. 14 be in C# Minor?
Thank you! (I can't read a word of Russian...)
If that "Sonata No. 14" is supposed to be the "Moonlight," then it should be in C# Minor.
