    Arvo Pärt - Tabula Rasa (ECM)
    This is the album that sent me on a buying spree of Pärt's music. I didn't even notice that Keith Jarrett played on the opening track until months after owning it. o_O

    I've heard that before but I still haven't heard that recording. What is it about the RCA recordng that makes it stand out?

    We need something serious to balance the fluff you people have been posting. :) This is from 1965. Previn was pretty much past his jazz pianist phase & beginning his conducting career. He was also still composing for films & turning out pop/easy listening albums for Columbia. Three of the numbers on this were written by Previn & his then-wife Dory Langdon, although only one, the movie theme song "Goodbye, Charlie (you can look it up) has Langdon's lyrics sung, in this case by an excruciatingly annoying female chorus. Paich was a great jazz arranger, but jazz content is minimal. Previn plays harpsichord on some cuts.

    This is strange. I hear everybody here refer to Rampal as The Man with the Golden Flute but I was under the impression it is this chap....

    Recorded 11/80, Philharmonie, Berlin. Producer: Michel Glotz. Engineer: Wolfgang Gülich. An early digital recording that sounds warm rather than harsh. This time I really noticed the early Sibelius links to Tchaikovsky.

    I have that one, as well as most of the recordings he did for the Contemporary label. Not one of the great jazz pianists, but interesting with lots of technique. He returned to making jazz recordings in the 80s.

    Some (including me) feel he should have stuck with his classical job :)

    Now it's disc 8 of Mozart 225 The New Complete Edition. This disc almost completes the piano sonatas (there's one final sonata on disc 9) in recordings by Mitsuko Uchida and Maria João Pires:

    There's also Adagio in B Minor K540 from Alfred Brendel:

    And finally K574 and K355 from András Schiff.

    I'd love to have that. Manha de Carnaval is one of my fave movie melodies - period. The movie Black Orpheus very memorable.

    Nothing beats this version :love:



    and this is a close second for me. :love:

    Wow, took me a long time to find this on Spotify. Never did find it by searching for the title, composer or group. I ended up doing a Google search and there was a Spotify link there I could use. As I initially couldn't find this recording I started listening to another group playing the Brahms quartets and was enjoying the warm rich sound. Switching over to the Amadeus Quartet was a bit jarring at first due to the sound quality difference. I found it quite cold and bright in comparison but got used to it after a bit. The playing is wonderful.
