Thanks, Andrei. I just reserved them at the library.
This one is from 1951, in "Rom" (which I take to mean "Rome"). It is on the Archipel label, and looks as if it might be part of a box set called Music from the Paradise.
I'll try the Wand. Didn't he record Bruckner twice? If so, which one are you recommending?
This a.m., I'm listening to Bruckner's 4th, by HvK, and am liking it plenty.
Praetorius published 312 short (most no more than two minute) dance pieces in his Terpsichore volume. In comparing the track listings between these two, there are a number of duplications, and there are also many more dances not duplicated on both discs. I have not heard the Pickett disc.
Ordered. I'll be making plenty of Merthe soon. Thanks.
And don't forget taking a Pickel with you!
I had the Susskind and sold it!
The Dutiot was plenty good nuff for me and selling the Susskind helped my collection grow by 5-6 CD's.
Let me know how ya like it!
Dunno why but many of those Early Music/Consort CD's once they are OOP become like gold!
This is another EXCELLENT collectible from BSL but it's already gold @ $35+.
Being that it went OOP in 2006 even while BSL was still in biz.
I managed a deal for mine off ebay ULN $22 shipped.
It's expensive only if one wants the MFSL SACD, but there's still the original Vox CD which adds Smetana's Ma Vlast as bonus and costs about $5 at the USA Amazon Marketplace. IMO, at that price the Susskind can be considered (as well as the Boult) a great atmospherical/esoterical addition to the Dutoit's more straightforward spectacular.
Few other early music CD's on my future to get list!
These 2 can be had REAL cheap too.
(My birthday is Feb 22nd.....hint hint)
(No decent graphic for this one)
And you'd better stick a Regenmantel in your Lederhosen.
The fresh air will do me good.
Yes—I do like Bruckner
Ok, might be yet another performance.
Yes, at least twice. I'm thinking of his last recording, with the Berlin Philharmonic on RCA:
Doubtless. Bruno Walter, Karl Bohm, George Tintner, Furtwängler and Jochum are also great in Bruckner's "Romantic" Symphony as well.
Try his Karajan Gold recording of Saint Saens Organ Symphony. Yikes.
I hope you do not have it in your collection. I do but am thinking of selling it.
But not in public ....
One of my favorite symphonies the 4th. Ya know what is a sleeper recording of the 4th....
Pickett on Decca is the one I have - actually the only Praetorius I own. It's a fine disc.
Somehow I remember Wilson recording for Atlantic, though.
Now playing CD5 from this set for a first listen ...
here's another direct-to-disc lp i got for a quarter:Tchaikovsky,Capriccio Italien/
Rimsky-Korsakov,Capriccio Espagnol/Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops.Crystal Clear

mastering engineers:George Piros,Stan Ricker & Richard Simpson.special equipment:
John Meyer.console design:John Curl.my pressing says it was made in West Germany.
i also have this on cd:Orinda Records OR 7003-CD.the cd is from a digital tape recorded
by Soundstream,Inc. & its' founder,Thomas G. Stockham.Whyte is listed as the recording
engineer & a note says that "although still LIVE,the performances and frequency balances are different." (from the direct-to-disc recording.)they also say that "during the
Direct To Disc sessions,the simultaneous use of Analog Tape and the newest technology,
Digital Tape,was employed as well." digital mastering specialist:Bruce Leek.
the cd playing time is the same as the lp,only about 32 min.my cd was actually manufactured by Columbia House,a div. of CBS,& it says "first released as a compact
disc in 1987 by Bainbridge".it has more recently been released on cd by Laserlight.
Did Naxos do many DVD-As? I would not have figured.
Naxos has lots of piano music played by Jenö Jandó, one of the best at playing Beethoven.
Whose Beethoven have you compared Jando's to? I found his Op. 2 disappointing and haven't bothered to get more of his Beethoven.
His Liszt got rave reviews in the Penguin Guide but it does little for me.
Yep, These Sibelius works are in the DG box set from japan..
Atm. Gaydn is the man.
After the London ymphonies by Jochum I am playing THE SEASON at least 3 times in its entity since yesterday. The version by Rene Jacobs with the RIAS Choir and the Freiburger Varockorchester sounds so beautiful with a warm tone and more colors of sound than I heard before. Talking about the first 2004 reading. Also mentioned in Stereophiles Records To Die For thread of 2010.
HAYDN: The Seasons
Marlis Petersen, soprano; Werner Güra, tenor; Dietrich Henschel, baritone; RIAS Kammerchor Freiburger Barockorchester, René Jacobs
Harmonia Mundi 901829.30 (2 CDs). 2004. Alan Blyth, prod.; Martin Sauer, eng. DDD. TT: 2:05:00
As music descriptive of nature, Haydn's Die Jahrzeiten has probably never been bettered (sorry, Vivaldi): we get sunrises, storms, birds, bees, the grim approach of winter, and the hunt, complete with horns that make you want to get on your horse and race after a fox. Scored for the usual strings as well as double winds, a double-bassoon, four horns, piccolo, three trumpets, three trombones, timpani, triangle, tambourine, and fortepiano continuo, the colors are brilliant. And this, Jacobs' first recording of the work (and not to be confused with his more recent recording), has top-drawer playing and singing: the latter simple storytelling rather than operatic turns. It's a positively exhilarating experience, gorgeously recorded, with ideal balances. It's like a walk in the countryside. (XXVIII-4)
Heartically recommended !
Cjance of the day - be quick
I watched this very wonderful reading of FAURE-REQUIEM this morning at arte tv .
Played on historical instruments from his own handwritten manuscript.
Sophie Karthäuser sings the wonderful sopran and the cjoirs and orchestra in this setting give this a nearly transcendental excperienxe of heavens.
Best of all
you can watch it here http://videos.arte.tv/de/videos/das_requiem_von_faure-3692762.html for another 16 hours !
Das Requiem von Fauré
Es spielt das "Chambre Philharmonique" unter der Leitung von Emmanuel Krivine.
The setting and acoustics make this different. watch the heavenly angels singing the last part from upstairs,...
Naxos did a lot of them, usually accompanied by SACD of the same title (SACDs usually have separate stereo mixes, while DVD-As are multichannel-only). The company abandoned both formats several years ago, but you can find some DVD-As at JPC.DE as well as at eBay. You may read some reviews, for example, here and here.
I'm currently listening to this performance for the first time:
I only heard Mahler's 6th for the first time a couple of weeks ago when I purchased this recording:
So far, the LB seems a bit more exciting and lively. I'm quite enjoying it.
