    I agree. I've remarked here and elsewhere before that Dvorak somehow always manages to seem optimistic.

    Outstanding! I love Bernstein’s traversal of Mahler on Columbia. Certainly explosive performances captured in great sound.

    One does wonder what relation these Dutilleux works have in common with the Gauguin painting?

    They were both French? If you read the blurb on the back cover, it mentions Van Gogh's Starry Night as an inspiration for the Timbres, so perhaps that would have been more appropriate as a cover.

    Edit: Just googled "Dutilleux Gauguin" and it appears that his Symphony No. 2 was inspired by that painting of Gauguin and especially its title “D'où venons-nous? Que sommes-nous? Où allons-nous?” ("Were do we come from? Who are we? Where are we going?").

    Very cool. I just read about that connection between Dutilleux’s 2nd symphony and the painting by Gauguin. Interesting. Thanks for the feedback.

    Starting the day with some Haydn keyboard works.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Joseph Haydn - Piano Sonatas XVI:41, 16, 2, 32 & 46 - Bart van Oort, fortepiano

    Spotted a sort of pattern in my listening:

    1. Buy mini-box set (5-15 CDs)
    2. Listen to at least 1CD per day, both to hear the new stuff and check all the CDs play correctly.
    3. Due to the resulting slight over-exposure to said artist/medium, put the box aside for a while.
    4. Rediscover it a few months later, and enjoy just dipping in at random.

    Anyway, re-arranged my CDs yesterday and discovered I have plenty of space to expand. Expanding my meagre collection of Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Shostakovich is the top priority, and perhaps some more Schubert.
