    Default In which there was Schubert

    symphonies abado.jpg

    Sleep is eluding me once again. Oh well. Time for some Schubert. Symphonies No. 3 and No. 4 'Tragic' with Claudio Abbado leading the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

    EDIT: Still going with the same set and listening to the Symphony No. 8 'Unfinished' and Joseph Joachim's orchestration of the 'Grand Duo'.

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
    Horn Concertos
    Pip Eastop, natural horn
    Anthony Halstead conducting the Hanover Band

    This is immediately my new favorite set of Mozart's horn concertos, eclipsing the Radovan Vlatkovic set with Jeffrey Tate and the English Chamber Orchestra. This disc also includes the horn quintet which I have not got to yet.

    Good Morning TC!. Let´s we start this week listening to Johannes Brahms´Piano Concert Nº 1, Played by Krystian Zimerman and Sir Simon Rattle with Berliner Philharmoniker. I love this concert, albeit I prefer Zimerman/Bernstein, the sound quality is much better in this one.

    I especially love the spirited, majestic, and noble last movement of Karajan's sixties DG Tchaikovsky's Fifth.

    The morning started a bit too early today

    Yawn. Stretch. Yawn.

    To fill the gap, I've selected this from my collection, already on my second traversal:

    51JiRMn1PlL._AA160_.jpg
    Bruckner Symphony 6
    Nagano, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin

    Bruckner never altered or revised this one. Cheeky! Mahler conducted at the première in Vienna just a few days less than 116 years and one month ago.

    It is my beloved wife's birthday and my son's first day of spring break.

    Bacon and chocolate chip pancakes are on the grill.

    Our soundtrack to this wonderful morning is:

    Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849)

    Chopin: Late Masterpieces (2010)
    Stephen Hough, piano

    currently: Nocturne (No. 18) in E major, Op. 62/2 (1846)

    Chopin - Hough 2.jpg

    Everything that this man has done in the past 15 years is pure magic. Sorcery at it's finest. One of the best albums from one of my favorite pianists. Almost better than bacon.
