    Farrenc_Symph13_400x400-1.jpg

    Louise Farrenc Symphonies 1 & 3
    Johannes Goritzki/Radio Philharmonic Hannover

    I was promised music that was Mendelssohnian in character, and I was delivered the same. Very engaging and worthy of more play in concert halls. This is a nice DDD recording from 1998.

    Wonderful songs and a diverse blend of seriousness and absurdity.

    Maurice Ravel: Piano Concerto in G major. Philippe Entremont, Eugene Ormandy, Philadelphia Orchestra. Great performance. On par with my old standby, Samson François/André Cluytens/Conservatoire. I picked up this disc after I saw someone post about it the other day in this thread. Really glad I did.

    Don't know his songs yet, but I do rank Poulenc very highly. Absurdity is a good word to describe some of his music, also good humour, spark, wit and a sense of elegant profoundity (albeit not always).

    Bruckner: Symphony No. 5
    Barenboim, Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra

    I seldom listen to Bruckner due to the length of his symphonies. I decided to try this one out after reading D Smith's recommendation. I liked the first movement quite a bit, and the other three all had their moments. I would find intensely focused listening to this symphony a bit boring, but it made a nice accompaniment to my work this afternoon.
