    Default New musical discoveries!

    Post here any piece you have discovered recently that you have really enjoyed. I have recently been getting a little bit into Faure, and discovered this very beautiful little gem:

    Mussorgsky, the Intermezzo from Khovanshchina, known on this CD as Galitsin's Journey, and the Chorus of Priestesses from Salaambo. Galitsin's Journey would provide a nice ending to a CD featuring Liszt's From the Cradle to the Grave and his Orpheus; while the Chorus of Priestesses might nicely complement a CD featuring Debussy's Nocturnes and Szymanowski's Third Symphony.




    I disclaim all responsibility for Stokowski's conducting:

    I was trying to get just the nocturne variation that goes from 8:15 to 10:24 in, but nobody on youtube had the variations broken up that way, so here is a big chunk of Britten diversions.

    That is such an excellent recording!

    See what you think of this Alfred Schnittke piece. I heard it on the radio but didn't catch the full title and had to hunt for it.

    Mozart's SQuintet K. 516 in G minor. I was pretty surprised to like it on first hearing (I'm not Mozart's no. 1 fan)

    Here is a lively little gem I recently discovered by Faure:

    Poulenc's Nocturnes for Piano, particularly this one:

    After I get tired of Prokofiev, Poulenc is my next victim.

    Today: Debussy's Fantaisie (okay), Bartok's piano concerti (blew my mind), Pierne's piano concerto (pretty darn good first movement), and Brahms' Haydn Variations (very good, though I wonder how much Mitropoulos' conducting and the Minnesota Orchestra's playing had to do with my opinion).

    Yes, doubly sure now. How arrogant of you to ask!

    (Oh, yes, the piece was nice though.)

    This Chopin waltz entitled 'Melancholique'. It's quite un-Chopin, if you ask me :P
