    This new Matsuev/Gergiev sounds interesting--the Japanese-English translation is hilarious!



    http://www.kinginternational.co.jp/classics/mar-0587/

    Some highlights:
    * By Matsuefu & Gergiev strongest combination, Concertos too terrible
    * all three hen are made ​​in order to play the composer himself, we each also remains recordings charge of solo. All you are required flame finesse, but huge finesse reproduced without any bitterness of Matsuefu

    Google translate is bad in any instance, but it seems especially inept at understanding Japanese.

    "Concertos too terrible" would be better rendered "an overwhelmingly amazing collection of concertos" or something similarly hyperbolic.

    "Hen" in this instance refers to the pieces (the term can also mean "volume" or "part" or similar).

    ^^^ Oh wow. Oh wow. ok. Yeah. ok. That is an incredible program. I am pretty in love with Levit's late Beethoven sonatas. I don't feel like I need new recordings of any of these pieces, but to hear him tackle them all. Eeek. Ok. yeah. I don't think a pianist has recorded all three of those pieces before. That's a gonna buy for sure.

    Very ambitious.

    Perhaps surprisingly, not all of the pieces are for both violin and piano; there is one solo work for each instrument as well.

    The Sonata for Solo Violin is a monster and rarely recorded--thanks for the listing.

    Duly noted. I like both his Beethoven sonatas and Bach partitas very much.

    How cool is this? I'm still looking for "my" version of the Bach concertos, although Café Zimmermann, Pierre Hantai, and the Retrospect ensemble have done good stuff. But the Freiburgers have done some really good albums (their Bach Overtures are my go-to version), and Staier I trust blindly.

    This is a stunner, as one would expect from Tennstedt live. Sound quality is stupendous. I had some issues with the downloads I bought from Presto Classical, but they're all sorted out. If you're a Mahler and/or Tennstedt fan, I rank this as a must have. This is only with respect to Sym. No. 5, I did not get the Kindertotenlieder as part of the download.

    Listening again. The Adagietto is so exquisite, among the very best I've heard. Must not get misty at the office.
