    I know his symphonie concertante for organ and orchestra. I discovered it when I was in love with Saint Saens organ symphony and was searching for some other organ symphonies. He is good.

    Sergei Rachmaninov: ‘Prince Rostislav’ & Symphony No.1
    Vasily Petrenko & the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra


    After re-listening to my previously posted trio Rachmaninov pieces by these forces, I have moved on to ‘Prince Rostislav’ and Rachmaninov’s First Symphony.

    I am really enjoying Petrenko’s approach to Rachmaninov and musicianship of the RLPO is superb. I’m enjoying listening these works.

    Scott is cembalist. I speak for piano interpreters. Certainly Scott is great with Domenico.

    A recent acquisition, with a story behind it. In 2001 my late son walked from Paris to Santiago de Compostela. It was a life changing experience for him. Sadly he was killed in 2006. I am grateful, though, that he had the opportunity to make the Pilgrimage. He would have enjoyed this recording.

    Disc 1 of 2 - David Temple leading the Hertfordshire Chorus and London Orchestra da Camera in choral music by Michael Hurd:




    The first CD in this set is so good I've only listened to the second disc once or twice. Hurd's choral music is simple, elegant, and immensely lyrical. Temple and the Hertfordshire Chorus perform this music wonderfully.
    I love music. I want music. I need music.

    Ives Three Places in New England Zinman Baltimore

    Ives amazes me in his ability to pile melodies some familiar some original on top of other melodies some original some familiar. And every once in a while, after your ears have been working overtime, he gives you a break with a truly original melody that stands alone. It is said he developed the concept at a parade when he heard two marching bands one receding and one approaching. My guess is that his brain was just wired differently : ). And we are grateful for that...

    I really love this cycle. I just ordered the Keller Quartet Bartók cycle and I’m excited to explore that one more thoroughly.
