    It is generally agreed that Mutter has a fabulous technique, though some think that her ease of execution tends to lead her into interpretive excess. I've always enjoyed her flamboyantly personal style and she is one of those violinists I can often recognise on a blind hearing. In this live recital from 1995 she certainly takes risks, but they pay off splendidly. Superb accompaniment from Lambert Orkis and the audience is admirably quiet.

    I find this an exceptionally good Bruckner 3 - really quite beguiling.

    György Ligeti - various works part three this morning and early afternoon, focusing on the composer's first decade after leaving Hungary in which his music made a real quantum leap.

    Artikulation for tape (1958):
    Apparitions for orchestra (1958–59):
    Atmosphères for orchestra (1961):
    Aventures for soprano, mezzo-soprano, baritone and seven instrumentalists [Texts: György Ligeti] (1962):
    Nouvelles Aventures for soprano, mezzo-soprano, baritone [Texts: György Ligeti] (1962–65):
    Requiem for soprano, mezzo-soprano, mixed choir and orchestra (1963–65):

    Lontano for orchestra (1967):




    Lux Aeterna for unaccompanied mixed choir (1966):

    '...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).

    Felix Mendelssohn: Piano Trio No.2 in C minor, op.66. Trio Wanderer. Awesome performance. I love how fast Mendelssohn's music often is. It's all Molto allegro, Presto, Allegro appassionato, etc. I don't know of many other composers whose music is so frequently at such a high tempo.

    Me too for some Villa Lobos, a composer who fascinates me ... I keep thinking he is going to get really kitsch but he stops short of that and does something really interesting but perhaps this is less in the symphonies than some other works. Here the 1st is a little dull but 11 is a very fine work.

    It worked fine here in Canada and I had a friend check it out in the States and it appears to work there as well. I will check it once again after it's officially released and see if I can post a link which will work in the UK.
