RE: Re: What are you listening to?

I've been steadily working my way through this 50 disc set:

Mostly pretty standard repertoire but the performances are anything but and as a record of the development of one of the world's finest orchestras it is wonderful.

I've also been listening to many other discs including:

That looks nice. I'll have to give some of those a go if they're on Spotify.

 

I've been listening to one of Vivaldi's String Concertos today played by Giuliano Carmignola. I think that this might be one of his lesser known pieces but it sounds fabulous and I've just orded the CD from Amazon.

RE: Re: What are you listening to?

For years I've loved Ashkenazy's recordings of the Rachmaninov Concertos with Previn, but today I've been listening to his earlier recording of the 3rd with Fistoulari conducting and they are even better.  There is a fleetness to Ashkenazy's playing here which reminds me somewhat of certain aspects of Rachamninov's own playing. It is a much nicer sounding piano than on the later set as well - less of the slight aggressiveness of a modern Steinway and more warmth and depth to the sound.

 

 

Also, today Karajan's intense and beautiful recording of the string orchestra version of Verklarte Nacht (Schoenberg), and Blomstedt's reading of the Alpine Symphony (R.Strauss).

Back to simplicity, focus on what matters - the music.
