    It's taken a long time for Rattle to record these works, and it's a job well done. Performances are from attractive middle-of-the-road readings, and enhanced with probably the best available sound.

    It's a pricey ticket, this CD and Blu-ray package. For a similar outlay, one can obtain most of HvK's symphonic work with the same band (DG Symphony Edition boxset, incl. '71 Schumann cycle).

    For those with the VPO/LB and/or Dresden/Sawallisch Schumann, those recorded performances have not been surpassed.

    Vaneyes,

    Do you have a link for this CD? Is it a pre-release?
    Unfortunately I can't see the Label (Record Company) in this picture. Do you know which is/will be?

    Thanks!

    [Edit] Ignore it please. I just found. It is from the new BP label and it will be released this week.

    I'd be interested in your take on this. I have it and find it a bit...unusual.

    The Gaudier Ensemble on Hyperion, very good performance!

    I'm a bit sad that the original "Current Listening" Thread capsized, pity the forum software don't harbour massive undertakings like it..

    Webern: String Quartet
    Julliard Quartet


    Webern really throws a hail Mary with this one. The three movements form as compact a playbook as one might expect from the home team when the clock is ticking down and there are no timeouts left, but fortunately the Julliard Quartet are there as the wide receivers to make the catch. All in all, if not a touchdown, at least a first down that puts our team in position to score a field goal.

    There does not seem to be a better quality version on Youtube and this makes me very sad as the music feels very suppressed !



    The cadence of the first movement makes me feel so happy.

    ^^Gondur, I wonder if you'd mind not embedding videos in this thread - there is another 'Current Listening with Videos' thread (or similar title) for that very purpose. It can make pages on this thread very slow to load at times.


    Currently listening to:

    Bruckner - Symphony No. 3 in D minor (1873 Original Version, ed. Nowak)
    Georg Tintner, Royal Scottish National Orchestra [Naxos, 2000]



    This is really growing on me now that I've heard the third symphony a few times. I really love Bruckner's use of a restricted palette of orchestral 'colours'. The result is grand, austere and dignified. After listening to a Bruckner symphony, I sometimes can't get the themes and their elaboration out of my mind for hours (this is a good thing!). A few weeks ago I accompanied myself (in my head) all through a 5 mile walk in that way.
