    I pre-ordered the Arturo Toscanini RCA Collection today (84 cd's + 1 dvd)


    This set offers a reissue of RCA’s 1992 compendium that encompassed all the recordings that Toscanini made with the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and NBC Symphony Orchestra. It also features two CDs of previously unreleased recordings with the BBC Symphony from the 1930s that were not included in the 1992 edition.

    Monks of the desert (Sony Music)
    Blessings, Peace & Harmony
    www.christdesert.org


    Monks of the desert.jpg

    A CD of Gregorian Chant by the Benedictine Abbey of Christ in the Desert

    This is soothing and beautiful plainchant.

    Track 1 (Alma Redemptoris) Advent Season starts with bells, moves into chant in the Lydian mode, Mode V.
    Track 2 (Salve Regina) Ordinary Time, Mode I - Dorian chant
    Track 3 (Salve Mater) Mode V - Lydian
    Track 4 (Sequence: Ave mundi spes Maria) Mode VII - Mixolydian
    Track 5 (Sequence: Stabat Mater) Variously attributed to Innocent III and Jacopone da Todi Mode II - Hypodorian
    Track 6 (Kyrie IV) Mode I - Dorian
    Track 7 (Gloria IX) Mode VII - Mixolydian
    Track 8 (Sanctus IV) Mode VIII - Hypomixolydian
    Track 9 (Agnus Dei IV) Mode VI - Hypolydian
    Track 10 (Rorate caeli) Advent Season Mode I - Dorian
    Track 11 (Puer natus) Christmas Season Mode I - Dorian
    Track 12 (Parce, Domine) Lenten Season Mode I - Dorian
    Track 13 (Alleluia, O filii et filiae) Easter Season Mode II - Hypodorian
    Track 14 (Salve festa dies) Easter Season Mode IV - Hypophrygian
    Tracks 15-18 (Mass III, Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Agnus Dei) Mode IV - Hypophyrgian
    Track 19 (Alleluia, Confitemini) Easter Season Mode VIII - Hypomixolydian
    Track 20 (Alleluia, Vir Dei) Gospel Acclamation for Saint Benedict Mode VI - Hypolydian
    Track 21 (Alleluia, Iustus germinabit) Gospel Acclamation for Doctors Mode III - Phrygian
    Track 22 (Alleluia, De profundis) Gospel Acclamation for the 33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time Mode VII - Mixolydian
    Track 23 (Alleluia, Paratum cor meum) Melody is possibly from the beginning of the 11th Century Mode III - Phrygian

    I wish I had had this CD when I was learning the medieval modes. The information is so dry without actual chant in that mode to listen to - and so rich when one actually hears it in context.

    I enjoy Gregorian chant and this is one of the best recordings of it that I have.

    Edit. I did turn it down for Beethoven: the String Quartets [Box Set] Beethoven comes first. Might still get Dvorak though in the future but Beethoven will be my concentration for now.

    Ok, big day.



    Not sure how I decided to get this. I had it on my wish list a long time, but the truth is I don't need it! I have Zinman in the Holidays and Bernstein in the other pieces, but of course other recordings can be interesting and it's like $7 or so. Also, I didn't know until I looked at the track list here that there are two versions of "The Unanswered Question."



    Never heard this before and it turns out it was a big hit once upon a time. I do like Weill though.



    This is the crowning jewel of this order. I'm really, really looking forward to this.

    A little off-topic perhaps, but I got these too:

    That is an excellent recording if you prefer two male voices in Mahler's Lied. I waver back and forth - this is a great one, but sometimes I also prefer this:

    Thanks neoshredder - yes this is some awesome Music and so much of it to listen to as well!.
    If you like Haydn I can definetely recommend the Quartets, they are some of his greatest works!.

    I made a mistake some years ago thinking I'd never want that many of Haydn's quartets, so I skipped the box and bought the op. 76 CDs. Then I got the 7 Last Words. Then I got the op. 77, and the op. 33. Soon I will get the op. 20.

    Always buy the box, my friends. Always buy the box.

    Sonatas for Cello And Piano {Analekta}.png

    Normally I don't buy recordings simply for one piece, but if that piece is Brahms' op. 78 I often make an exception. Though usually recorded as a sonata for violin, there are several cello versions out there as well.

    What I didn't expect is that this recording of Brahms two cello sonatas would be so fantastic. In fact, in just a week of listening to this CD, I'm ready to list this as my favorite recording. I own Rostropovich/Serkin, Isserlis/Hough, Barenboim/du Pré, Pöntinen/Thédeen, and Moyer/Green, and this is my favorite. A lovely, balanced, and nuanced recording. This is my introduction to both gentlemen, so I'm interested if anyone out in TC has additional recordings by them.
