    I feel that Abbado's conducting combines craftsmanship with artistry which sets a graceful elegant pace with a beautifully lyrical sense of melody and rhythmic agility.
    Very quality pianist the Nikos! I will have also something with him in the near future. This is the kind of artists I'd like to see. With quality, dedication, love, etc. for the instrument. And ETHOS! (a FFFFFing nice Greek word for a FFFFing good Greek pianist).
    Alles Vergängliche ist nur ein Gleichnis; das Unzulängliche, hier wird's Ereignis;
    das Unbeschreibliche, hier ist's getan; das Ewig-Weibliche zieht uns hinan.

    I was looking for some viola music last night and came across this performance of the last movement of fifteen-year-old Mendelssohn's Sextet in D (which is really more a piano concerto for tiny orchestra) and it was a lot of fun.

    That's disgusting! Why must Mendelssohn remind us how valueless we were at 15?? No excuse for Felix! I'm sure Mozart would agree.

    Wow, I heard this live in a Church in Venice in 1988, my first Monteverdi experience. Never knew there was a recording of it

    Klemperer was my gate for Brahms. I found Brahms boring until I heard him. Now I like his Brahms well enough and yet prefer many others ... but it was Klemperer who got me there. Back then there was no Gardiner who is fast and easy with Brahms and who did actually introduce me to the German Requiem.
