    Richard Strauss: Burleske
    Weber: Konzertstucke, Op.79 Claudio Arrau/Century Symphony Orchestra (Chicago Symphony Orchestra in disguise!!)/Desire Defauw
    Albeniz: Iberia Books 1 and 2
    Debussy: Pour le Piano/Estampes/Images Books 1 and 2 Claudio Arrau

    This wonderful set continues to provide some of the most transcendental pianism that I've ever heard. I was staggered by the performance of Strauss' Burleske, it is stupendous, and I've never heard better, nor indeed as good. The reason for the anonymity of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra was down to RCA releasing it on their Camden label, they felt that it would be embarrassing for the artists were their names to appear on a bargain label, so orchestras were given fictitious names, and conductors and soloists omitted!! At any rate this is a superb performance, as is the Weber work on the same disc. The Albeniz is extremely well played and Arrau's Debussy is always a joy, he really understood the French master. The remastering of the recordings leave nothing to be desired, and thus far (I'm now just half way through the 12 cds) this set can be confidently recommended.

    Antonin Dvorak: The Noonday Witch Op.108, Symphony No.8 Op.88
    Claudio Abbado & the Berliner Philhamoniker


    Whilst I am awaiting the arrival of my order of Rusalka, I have decided to dip into Dvorak's orchestral output with this Symphonic Poem, performed magnificently by Abbado & the Berliner Philharmoniker. I have not really listened to the tone poems very often so this is a most pleasant surprise.

    The Symphony is excellent and the performance here does the piece justice.

    I had forgotten just how much I enjoy Dvorak's music. When the time comes to revise my list of preferred Composers, Dvorak will be making a compelling case to make the top 10 or top 11 on joint position with Brahms.

    Franz Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsodies 1-5
    György Cziffra (Piano)


    A small selection of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsoies before turning in for the night.

    Fine performances from Cziffra on this EMI recording from CD5 of their collection 'Liszt - The Piano Collection'.
