    Listening to number 2 today.
    From Bychkov to now Nelsons.
    Fine recordings.
    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    Listened to the remainder of Liszt Harmonies poétiques et religieuses (Miserere, d’après Palestrina, Andante lagrimoso, Cantique d’amour), all three poetic, meditative pieces. Howard's performances are satisfying here.



    Now, the question raised by this set, do I go back and listen to the earlier version of the same piece, also recorded in its entirety in this set? I think not, at least not at this time. Maybe back to some Dutilleux.

    How does it compare to my favourite - the 1950 Talich set on Supraphon?

    I believe that the purpose of this wonderful BS isn't to have the best of the best performances, but to have everything the Master composed under one celling. Leslie is giving us many top interpretations but also other which aren't so good. This is very logic. Despite some weaknesses this is The Master Set and we are super happy to listen to it and to enjoy it's unique music.

    Yes, through his performance and scholarship Howard has in some sense occupied Liszt's identity, bringing us all of the music in respectful interpretations. A remarkable project. I don't think I'll live long enough to listen to it all.

    Mendelssohn, Piano Concerto No. 1

    Stephen Hough will be playing this with the Nashville Symphony tonight, but it's too doggone cold out, so I'm cocooning with Jaime Laredo and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. Yep, I'm a terrible person.
