Now playing this CD from my Rachmaninoff collection ...
I enjoy that one though...maybe its the music itself with the ensemble isnt a good match.
Home with the Missus, Stuart?
I was thinking more like this:
Fretwork's great. I think they simply were having an off day. Compare the sonorities of the two discs—the engineers certainly had a better time of it with Alio Modo than with Art of Fugue.
is this new?
It's a package containing an older recording of "Art of Fugue" with a more recent "Musical Offering." I think the box came out about five years ago. Savall leads a mixed ensemble of strings—mostly viols—and woodwinds in his realization of Der Kunst der Fuge. It's slower, more graceful and much better recorded than Fretwork's version.
no, but it is a repackaging of the two separate discs.
Amazon's price now beats ImportCD's by almost $3 since it provides free shipping. This set is looking very interesting ...
Just ordered this Ring this evening at some of the best prices I have seen in years and I already have this Ring on LP. This is Ring Cycle #5 for me ...
Holy Cow heading for Thread #19 already!
Where does the time go?
When I am at work the time slows to a crawl. When I am not, it flies!
Got to get to bed. Goodnight, Classical mavens!
Nothing a good ole Brahms Lullaby won't cure!
It's all about spelling on threads such as this, but when I meet the occasional classical music lover in the flesh I have some trepidation with the correct pronunciation of certain names. (I recall some question earlier about "Boulez.") Here are a few I need some input on:
I guess it "Depends."
Penderecki—I've heard Pen der ek EEE with the emphasis on EEE.
Celibidache—Various pronounciations/mispronounciations. Mine is CHELL a ba da CHE, but I've heard others.
Chailly—ditto, I say Chai EEE.
For G-d's sake—somebody correct me before I embarrass myself in public!
Moracec— It's Moravec, Ivan and I've always heard it as More a VEK
My nomination for prettiest piano tone, all-time.
Perahia— Sounds just like the social ones.
Gekić—Who? Is this what Horton hears?
Takács—I've heard Tock OCSH, mostly.
BTW—It's Pin-SHAUN for all you Pyn-Heads and Zombie Freaks out there who might be grazing on the interwebs right about now.
Sergiu Celibidache - the Romanian pronunciation is ˈserd͡ʒju t͡ʃelibiˈdake
Chailly - ʃɑ.i
I am fairly certain about the following, in other words, when I say these names I never feel uncertain and say them with authority like I know what the hell I'm talking about!!
I am more comfortable with this pronunciation than the one that stressed CHAY at the end.
The "dache" at the end of Celibidache is pronounced "dah-ke", the "ch" is a "k" here.
I think we have a winner!
Penderecki is pronounced "Penderetsh-ki: pɛndɛˈrɛt͡skʲi
Thanks, I thought it was pronounced as it was spelled.
Continue here please:
I have asked a Gort to lock this thread, as we are at our limit. Please post in the new thread (linked above) only. Thanks.
Separate names with a comma.
