    What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

    This will be my first exposure to Rachmaninov's recordings of his own work, after hearing Earl Wild, Van Cliburn, Vladimir Ashkenazy, et. al.

    Having heard so much about Mravinksy's interpretations of Tchaikovsky, I'm finally going to pick this up.

    I'm discovering Schubert, and this is part of my education.

    At very modest prices, the Zinman set was surprisingly good, the Nordheim violin concerto and supplementary Valen recording excellent.

    Amalie Malling plays the Fantasiestücke and Faschingschwank Aus Wien very well, with a good deal of temper; the disc also includes a reconstruction of Schuman´s Piano Sonata no.4

    I paid full price for both

    I've ordered some books about composers actually. Luigi Nono, Pierre Boulez and Edison Denisov, to broaden my horizon while listening. Also ordered a double CD of Promoteo by Nono. These guys are my favorite modernists at the moment.

    Two orders:

    and

    I eagerly anticipate their timely arrival (I hold out little hope though, Australia Post being what it is)

    Nice. Any Denisov works you like in particular?

    For a long time I only knew the guitar sonata, which I'm scared of (never played it live), and 4 orchestral pieces on a BIS recording I bought early 90's. Those are pieces written in the 80's. Two pieces I discovered lately are Three Pictures after Paul Klee, and On the Surface of a Frozen Pond, that I've heard several times. Right now I regard him as my favorite modern composer. Also the flute and guitar sonata is really nice. I might by lying in the first sentence here...I also listened a lot to some flute/piano pieces The Guitar Concerto and Chamber Symphonies are nice too. Unfortunately the man died after complications from a car accident in 1996. He seems to be overshadowed by his contemporaries Schnittke and Gubaidulina, whom I also like a lot...Just put on the Cello Concerto.

    '

    Interesting, some works I don´t know, but I've got the Chamber Symphonies & quite like them. The Cello Concerto is great (if dark), agree; I have both the Georgian/Kityaenko recording, which I prefer, and the Vista Vera one. I´d choose it as a representative work as well.
    The works for flute & piano on Vista Vera is among Denisov´s most approachable works, they sound quite French too.
