    Bill Kanengiser. Very exotic middle-eastern sounding guitar in alternate tunings.

    Is Vladigerov well known in this circle?
    Aleksandr Rachkofiev – I can’t answer your question whether Vladigerov is widely known within TC. But I do know this composer, at least certain works. My discs:

    Chamber Music
    (Vardar – Rhapsodie Bulgare; Deux Improvisations; Deux Morceaux; Ratchenitza [from: Deux Paraphrases Bulgares, no. 2]; Piano Trio)


    Works for violin and piano
    (Ratchenitza; Chant; Sonate; 4 pieces; Rhapsodie Vardar)


    performance of „Ratchenitza“


    Violin Concerto (coupled with the violin concerto by Sibelius)


    Yesterday and today I relistened to the three discs and enjoyed them all, though the violin concerto a bit less than the other works. But I did find a very positive review of the violin concerto on musicweb-international:
    http://www.musicweb-international.co...FON1402016.htm

    Thank you for reminding me to continue some investigations into Vladigerov’s other works. I will listen to his piano concertos via YouTube.

    Do you happen to know Myriam Marbe? The recent German music magazine “Fono Forum” presented a list of the ten best female composers. I don’t buy the concept of “best” and felt that somehow the term “the best” got confused with “most famous” ... Yet one name stuck out: Myriam Marbe. I listened to various YouTube links and the music really made a deep impression! – So just in case you don’t know her music: very recommended.

    Myriam Marbe: String Quartet no. 1


    Myriam Marbe: Concerto for viola da gamba (or cello)


    Myriam Marbe: „Haikus“ for flute and piano

    Yes, they are often excellent, as are the sleevenotes.

    Kubelik/Bavarian Radio Symphony - Mahler's Symphony No.1 in D major. Time may make a Mahler fan of me yet. Really enjoying it so far. I liked the way the droning introduction burst into the swirling lyrical themes in the woodwinds and gave way to a generally lighter development than I was expecting from the heavy start. Very well done symphonic writing. Also, the sound here is incredible. Crystal clear, especially for such a large ensemble, I feel like I can hear every part.

    Suzuki's Bach cantatas are incredible. I have not heard any from that volume though. Any major ones worth checking out?

    This symphony is blowing my mind. I didn't want to do it, but I'm tempted to get Kubelik's box set of all 10 Mahler symphonies. It's available for pretty cheap and I'm really impressed by his approach. The levity of his orchestra is a good complement (or mitigant ) to the thick solemnity of the composition itself.

    Having greatly enjoyed the great account by Anderszewski yesterday, another two Diabelli Variations. One by Serkin and one by Staier.

    Vaughan Williams, Symphony No. 5

    Having listened to Barbirroli's recording yesterday, I prefer this one. It is more atmospheric and evocative, if that makes sense.
