    I rarely give Barber's music much of an airing but after ripping this one to the car USB I've been enjoying it today. I particularly like the School for Scandal Overture.

    After this, I would like to continue with more violin sonatas but my listening time for today is done!

    Belohlavek and the Czech P.O.(Chandos)

    Martinu-1st Symphony.

    Might displace some of my established favourite recordings.....glowing and lyrical, and I feel as if I can almost detect a 'wit' about this particular interpretation...….

    Sibelius, Symphony No 2 - Berlin PO, Karajan.

    I don't know what it was but there was something missing from this - first listen I will try again, it might be me.

    Mozart, Symphony No. 29.

    Recorded back in 1937, this is Mozart done all kinds of wrong by today's standards, but hey, I'm a Beecham fanboy, so I'll sit through it looking for something I haven't heard before.

    Re: Magic Flute

    My top performance for this opera is Norrington/London Classical Players. The next tier down has Klemperer, Bohm, and Abbado.

    Rach 2 with Anna Vinnitskaya & die Elbphilharmonie/Urbanski. I think it's great! Been doing some yoga to it actually and balance training. I managed 1 minute on each leg a couple of times! My balance is kind of not good...

    Default Yesterday was a day of distractions, so the journey was delayed

    but today the phone is off, so my Beethoven quartet journey can continue as I near the end, I decided to listen to a couple newer recordings for Quartet 15 & 16 rather than old favorites .

    Ludwig van Beethoven
    String Quartet no.15 in A minor, op.132


    IMG_1721.JPG

    Cuarteto Casals


    The Cuarteto will release their final set of 3 CDs to complete the cycle in April, I just added it to my want list.
