    This is very old news. Why don't you join us who have already been listening and enjoying. Do a search for the Furtwangler thread.

    Since latest Gatti/Concertgebouw thread was closed out for awry arguments, I'll bring the latest news here: Settlement between Gatti and the Concertgebouworkest

    It's an statement by the Orchestra thanking him for his services and settling that they will all part ways and make no more comments about the sexual misconduct allegations and following dismiss.

    Particularly funny that Salome, of all pieces, will be released 'posthumously', for which Gatti himself could well be casted as one of the main characters. The story is a bit different, but his head sure ended up on the silver plate of the Concertgebouw without trial, after two female singers #metoo'd him.

    Musically, it is sad that Gatti's beautiful 3rd Mahler will not be released, as this was a real milestone.

    Did you listen to it in a live performance? I would love the RCO released it to hear if it's as good or better than the No.2. I think the Jansons Mahler cycle in Amsterdam was caught at the end of a recording technique that was left out by another richer one that boosted the new Gatti recordings for the same orchestra.

    I heard the 3rd on the radio only, most others live, also by Jansons.

    Note that there is an online recording of Gatti's 3rd Mahler available on the Dutch Public broadcast website: https://www.nporadio4.nl/componisten/mahler-gustav. I have trouble in opening the name of the performers, it only works with firefox. Gatti's 3rd Mahler with RCO can at least be recognized by its timing 1.44.22.Mahler3 (002).JPG Enjoy!


    I would think that the difference you notice between Jansons and Gatti has not so much to do with recording technique, it actually reflects the musical taste and style of both conductors. Jansons will give you a more subtle performance (at the risk of flat and even dull) and Gatti would give a more outspoken, analytical view, at the risk of becoming too fragmented. If everything fell in its place, both would be able to present stellar performances from the orchestra, but still very different. The orchestra is the continuous factor here. It sounds different depending on the conductor. If there is chemistry in the air, the Concertgebouw orchestra is the best in the world. I dare to say this as I have heard BPO and VPO a few times recently.

    Musically, it is very sad that Gatti was fired.

    Default Bach's Cello Suites for violin (Rachel Podger)

    Rachel Podger has recorded Bach's Cello Suites on violin - released today.

    The baroque violinist's own transcriptions of one of the pinnacles of the cello repertoire have an integrity and intelligence that's entirely convincing on its own terms, and the music never stops dancing.
    From the booklet:
    'Since, I have spent a fair bit of time coaching cellists, both modern and baroque alike, and found myself playing along to demonstrate various points I gradually could feel these pieces joining the violin partitas and sonatas as another kind of ‘daily bread’; I started catching myself playing some of the movements I particularly loved while warming up, and realising that it was actually possible to play them on the violin, and to find a special expressive vocabulary at the higher pitch.
    How could one possibly justify it, especially with works that have peppered the recording catalogue with some of the most iconic and adored string performances of all time, the Casals, Fourniers, Torteliers or Starkers? But what I was doing also seemed very much in keeping with Bach’s own habit of recycling his own compositions for different instruments and different uses. The examples are endless but I immediately think of the concertos appearing as sinfonias in cantatas, or concertos for violins turned into harpsichord concertos.
    The more I reflect, the less I feel the need to be defensive because Bach did far more outrageous things! Think of the Prelude of the E major Partita for violin turned into a full orchestral cantata movement with trumpets and drums…' (Rachel Podger)

    I purchased a Furtwangler based on someones recommendation and when I posted it, it got a thumbs down. Can you imagine that?
    Sig: I am currently traversing some of my French collection of music. I think that for the most part it is lovely.

    Les Six: The members were: Georges Auric (1899–1983), Louis Durey (1888–1979), Arthur Honegger (1892–1955), Darius Milhaud (1892–1974), Francis Poulenc (1899–1963), and Germaine Tailleferre (1892–1983). Marcelle Meyer was not an official member but had an association with Les Six.

    Do make note that the cover makes no claims that the CDs are remastered.
    The only part of this release that is "new" is the HiRes BluRay disc.
    And we won't know for sure how "Hi" that is (48K, 96K, or 92K) until more images are posted with the back cover included.
    I am 99% certain 96K is the best we can expect, as these were previously put on SACDs in Japan, and the only time UMG puts out 192K HiRes versions has been when the material was never previously on SACD.
