    This looks like a great release. I`m not a great fan of the music,but looking at the the players it seems I might have to change my mind.

    I should add that Trifonov played in the New York area last week, to great reviews.

    His latest Liszt disc is also a must have , if you like Liszt and Daniil playing that is .

    He seems to be the "darling" of the critics here in New York. They go overboard when his concerts are reviewed. A review that I read on a French site a while back thought that he is outstanding, but not the 7th Wonder of the Piano World. Only time will tell of course.

    Trifonov plays Scarlatti as if he's Chopin. Mannered!

    He should stay with the Romantics. That's his wheelhouse.

    Bach to chamber music:

    Mendelssohn Complete Quartets, Emerson String Quartet.

    The guy is 26 years of age, and has a very great future ahead of him and believe me, not only New York has endorsed him, it's world wide.

    The Emerson recording is one that I like very much. There are several complete recordings that are quite good, the Mandelring Quartet and the Pacifica Quartet are right up there with the Emerson. It seems that the Mendelsson works bring out the best in the those that record them.

    My win-the-lottery dream is to throw a house concert, hiring a noted string quartet, and perhaps a scholar/lecturer, to do a bit of background and Q&A before hand. I can't think of a better evening.

    I would, of course need a nicer house. But hey, I win the lottery first, right?

    Good luck on that, I buy a "Mega" once a week. So far I am batting zero!

    Yea, I hear ya. More likely is I will tax refund, upgrade my speakers, invite friends over for pizza, and play a CD.

    All Haydn string quartets - or, in a pinch, all from op.20 on. I've been seriously addicted to these for a year!
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.
