    I demand to know why there is no complete Barbirolli edition!

    The composer C.F.E. Horneman was acclaimed by his famous fellow-countryman Carl Nielsen as “the bright flame and lambent fire of Danish music”.

    I am not a great lieder/song aficionado but there some works I enjoy greatly.
    One such being Ravel's Sheherazade - having read a decent review of the 1948 recording by Suzanne Danco conducted by Ernest Ansermet I listened via Qobuz and was impressed by the performance of Danco and equally happy with the remastered sound quality.

    Henri Dutilleux: The Centenary Edition on Erato.
    Dutilleux.jpg

    Disc 3 from this set completes my listening to this 7 CD set. This features orchestral music:
    - Mysterie de l'instant
    - The Shadows of Time
    - Le Loup

    The Shadows of Time struck me as particularly beautiful.

    John Adams: I was looking at the ceiling and then I saw the sky The Band of Holst-Sinfonietta conducted by Klaus Simon on Naxos
    Attachment 130732

    This 'Song Play' has Adams adopting certain popular music styles mixed in with his customary styles. It's energetic and enjoyable - but I do have reservations. Occasionally sections almost make me cringe, but there are many really strong sections.

    An interesting experiment if not wholly a success!

    Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Sonata No.14 in C-sharp minor, op.27 no.2, "Quasi una fantasia" aka "Moonlight". Glenn Gould. Listening on account of DavidA having referenced this recording in another thread. A totally unique reading, way way too fast in the first movement, but not entirely without merit. I actually like it a lot. This is apparently one of Gould's favorite Beethoven sonatas, something he once admitted to while in the same breath disparaging the Appassionata as one of the worst.

    Symphony no.3 in D-minor - Nowak edition of the 1889 version (1873 - rev. 1874, 1876, 1877-78 and 1888-89):

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    Einojuhani Rautavaara: Piano Concerto No.1, op.45. Laura Mikkola, Hannu Lintu, Royal Scottish National Orchestra. I read that this is supposed to be an obscenely difficult piano concerto from the soloist's perspective, and I can see that. I've been listening to a lot of ridiculously challenging concertos today: Bartók 1, Mendelssohn 1, Prokofiev 5, Franck Symphonic Variations, Barber, and now this.

    & now for a little more...

    image (78).jpg

    Einojuhani Rautavaara: Études for piano, op.42; Partita for piano, op.34; Piano Sonata No.1, op.50, "Christus und die Fischer". Laura Mikkola. She is an astonishing virtuoso and really brings this unusual music home. What I am hearing is somewhere between Scriabin and Debussy, filtered through more of a late-Modern lens, feelings of stillness. I wonder if Rautavaara was interested in Cage and Feldman. Wow, it's amazing stuff. I wish I were in the mood for it more.
