    stravinsky dorati petrouchka le sacre.jpg

    Arriving in today's post all the way from Germany, Antal Dorati leading the London Symphony Orchestra in Petrouchka (1947 verison) and Four Etudes for Orchestra and the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra in The Rite of Spring.
    There's no point being grown-up if you can't be childish sometimes!

I guess, with this omission, one could argue this set is not complete. Notwithstanding, this is a great way to start a chamber music collection.
    Traverso, I have this Brilliant box in different packaging. Many, even most of these are top-drawer performances. The Tokyo SQ have never been excelled in the Op. 51 quartets, and likewise the Nash Ensemble performances of the piano quintet and horn trio are first-choice for me. I can say nearly as much for the KLR Trio in the three piano trios. Only the sextets really disappoint.

    None lately!!! I'm pretty excited to say it. My music purchasing had become a problematic compulsion...beyond the usual tee-hee spent too much on music this month discussions we have here. As I. I spent a mortgage- payment's worth on music last year. I have been using cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques (no joke) to control my spending impulses. And it's working!! My goal is no purchases until my medical bills are paid off, and at least until September. Then no more than one a month

    To counteract Sonata's latest achievement, I bought several records:

    Sometimes you come across such a huge and brilliant bargain that it almost makes you well up...well, it does me anyhow. I found these three vinyl box sets at a car boot sale yesterday. They are in superb condition and cost me the total sum of £6.

    A couple of HM chamber recordings on order. I've been streaming the Arcanto Quartet's recording of the Schubert C Major Quintet for a few days now & am convinced it is much the best recording of this work currently available. It's stunning.

    Bach - Kunst der Fuge - Max Pommer & ensemble / capriccio 2 LP (1984)

    Found this one cheaply - didn´t even know it existed. Am a big fan of Pommer, and this is very nice, especially, it seems, LP no 2.

    Just ordered:

    Xenakis: IX
    Hybrid SACD - DSD

    Kuniko, percussion

    includes:

    Pléïades
    Rebonds

    Kuniko - Xenakis.jpg

    http://www.allmusic.com/album/iannis...x-mw0002833154

    "Among Iannis Xenakis' most frequently performed and recorded works are his solo percussion pieces, Pléïades and Rebonds, which stretch the limits of a performer's dexterity, speed, and stamina. As part of her touring Project IX, Kuniko Kato has performed Pléïades in a multimedia presentation with dancer Megumi Nakamura, and Rebonds has been a part of her repertoire ever since she became a professional percussionist, so she has a thorough knowledge of Xenakis' system of notation and methods. This hybrid SACD from Linn provides the best format for capturing the subtle nuances and timbres of the instruments, which include pitched and unpitched percussion, and the multichannel recording reproduces the wide dynamic range and spatial dimensions of Kato's performances. Listeners who are coming to Xenakis for the first time may find the percussion works quite accessible, and they will appreciate the precision and power of Kato's virtuosic playing. Highly recommended. "
    "I propose to create a heroic, monumental style of composition simple enough to inspire all people; completely free from fads, artificial mannerisms and false sophistications; direct, forceful, sincere, always original but never unnatural." -Alan Hovhaness
