    Default Current Listening Vol IV

    A new thread for the same subject matter.

    The previous thread, Current Listening Vol III, has become another huge file, and because this particular thread is the most popular one on the site, we have created this new volume to continue posting.

    (referring to the last posts on Volume III)
    Pandolfi, and Biber, attracted my interest because they helped expand the technique of the violin. Their music is also interesting because of its chronological position in the era before tonality and CP practices got fully solidified. This makes for some interesting dissonances in places. The Ucellini is interesting for this reason as well.

    I have to check out the Uccelini soon. (I`m a Biber lover for sure). I have the Marini album and will give it another spin soon.
    Now I`m listening to this at work:

    Simon Rattle & the Berliner Philharmoniker are performing Mahler's Seventh Symphony live at the BBC Proms.

    I'm recording it for the Weekend but I did cheat and listen to the bulk of the first movement and I have to say it pleasantly surprised me.

    The Seventh is not as accessible to me at present but this performance knocked the door enough to let some light in and pique my interest. I am certainly looking forward to giving this piece and performance the time it deserves.

    Simon Rattle has impressed me quite a bit lately and has won me over from being a sceptic of his. His Sibelius and Stravinsky are excellent as is his recording of Brahms' Deutsche Requiem.

    Late night listening for me however is Mendelssohn's Lieder Ohne Worte again performed by Daniel Barenboim. This time it is Opus Nos. 30 & 38.

    Contrary to rumor, millionrainbows does not win a car for being the first non-administrative poster of Current Listening Volume IV.

    Sampling a recent release, Reger: Violin Sonatas (solo), Op. 42. I own Wallin's excellent Schnittke (BIS), so I was anxious to sample this. Comparatively-speaking for Reger, Op. 42 recs., it goes to the head of the line. An impressive balancing act of performance & sound.
