    There's actually three pieces on this recording: Carmen-Suite and Concertos for Orchestra Nos. 1 & 2.

    I like Minimalism if it's combined with other styles like John Adams for example. A work like Harmonielehre is much more than Minimalism. It's almost like Maximist Minimalism. Boy, that's a mouthful. :D

    This is worse. The 6 minute track stopped playing after 21 seconds. Bit rate 36!

    It's corrupted file from a FLAC album download I bought over at Presto. Usually, CD track rips don't just abruptly stop or end up with a bitrate of 36.

    I like his Violin Concerto "Scheherazade 2" very much, but it's not typical minimalism.

    Adams is a hit/miss composer for me. Scheherazade.2 is a work I need to listen to in order to have any kind of opinion of it. And yes, it's quite far removed from minimalism. But this can be said of many of his later works where it seems he has broken away from that kind of style.

    A great program of works. I always felt that Dance Panels was underrated in that it seldom gets mentioned in the same breath as Appalachian Spring or Billy the Kid. It's a fine work.

    In fact....

    Dance Panels

    All new to me (composer and performer). Sound is good and the music interesting half-way through.

    Final CD for the day:

    [​IMG]

    Recorded in 1949 when Karajan and Walter Legge were establishing their EMI catalogue. They balanced popular releases like this with less well-known (at the time) works such as the Richard Strauss Metamorphosen (CD 4 in this 10 CD box).

    Sprightly playing from the VPO. I'm also liking the sound in this remastered set (I bought the 101 CD compilation of the 13 smaller boxes).
