    Not my favourite Brahms ... but it was my favourite in my early days when I was finding it difficult to like the Brahms symphonies. But Klemperer's Brahms is different and distinctive and therefore might earn a place is a collection with multiple sets.

    Mornings this week

    Saint Hildegard of Bingen, A Feather on the Breath of God


    Telemann 12 Fantasies for solo violin, a new purchase. Quite nice.


    Bach Orchestral Suites, a terrific recording of these wonderful works


    Bach Complete Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin. A fantastic recording, the slight reverb gives these an expansive feel. I haven't listened to the complete set for quite a while, as I usually play a few of these myself each week.


    Bach Mass in Bm

    I have had this CD for a long time - I got it when it first came out - but never really enjoyed it. I just felt that the thematic material of such old music was a little limited. But now, after spending quite a bit of time listening to quite a lot of early music or different types the music opened up to me nicely and on this spin the music sounded ... like real music!

    Six symphs on a single CD!!
    Carl Friederich Abel (1723-1787):
    Symphony No.1 in G major
    Symphony No.2 in B flat major
    Symphony No.3 in D major
    Symphony No.4 in F major
    Symphony No.5 in C major
    Symphony No.6 in E flat major

    Cantilena
    Adrian Shepherd - conductor

    Don't mistake #3 for WA Mozart. It's really Mr. Abel.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Friedrich_Abel

    One of Abel's works became famous due to a misattribution: in the 19th century, a manuscript symphony in the hand of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was catalogued as his Symphony no. 3 in E flat, K. 18, and was published as such in the first complete edition of Mozart's works by Breitkopf & Härtel. Later, it was discovered that this symphony was actually the work of Abel, copied by the boy Mozart—evidently for study purposes—while he was visiting London in 1764. That symphony was originally published as the concluding work in Abel's Six Symphonies, Op. 7.

    In the mail, just received Boulez conducts Messiaen on the original issue DG, to replace my Musical Heritage Society copy. I'm glad I got it for a reasonable price, as it now seems to be going way up.

    First listen to Poulenc in quite a while.

    The sound is extremely crude on these recordings. The Marche Slav sounds terrible.

    PS The Firebird Suite fares a bit better.
