    Sibelius: Symphony No. 3 (Vladimir Ashkenazy, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra)

    This is another good version of the symphony. The third movement has the most excitement of the three.

    Chopin: 24 Preludes (Samson Francois)

    He is the first I've heard that impressed me with Prelude No. 7 and Prelude No. 14. Other great ones from this performance were 3, 10, 12, 22, and 24.

    Sampling a 2009 recording. These works had been absent from the collection for a long time... since culling Manze & Egarr.

    So ordered!

    Scelsi

    Chukrum (1963)
    for string orchestra



    The more I listen to Xenakis and Scelsi the more I wonder why I listen to anything else. So many similarities in atmosphere and evocation - mysticism, reflection, divinity, nature; a sense of both wonder and terror as the individual faces the eternal.
