    A. Bruckner: Symphony No. 8 in C minor
    Wiener Philharmoniker, led by Pierre Boulez

    4596782.jpg

    It's a terrible pity that Boulez never recorded any further Bruckner symphonies; I think he conducted the 6th and 9th, at least! His complete cycle could've been as thought-provoking as his wonderful Mahler project. Oh well, can't have it all...

    For me tonight, mister Heinrich Isaac Missa Paschalis, i all ready had this one on another label, than one might had wwhat your problem deprofundis, well it's Cappella Pratensis ensemble, iit's complimented whit organ orchestration, the other one is a suprise, why not? Claude Le Jeune::mon dieu mme paist(featuring also Claude Goudimel, very nice album, a pleasant suprise.I would like to point out it my second weeks whiteout smoking tobacco, thank god anyway.

    Im a big fan of Isaac and a lllesser fan of Le Jeune, but i still have the cd of claude le jeune perform by ensemble huelgas leead by brilliant Paul Van Nevel, what about claude goudimel well i had a cd on naxos of him, quite religieous and preachy in a way, i supposed Goudimel was a priest, easy guest, we all know the story he got killed at st barthelemy slaughter aaand that about it folks have a good night.

    I listened to
    Paul Hindemith "Das Marienleben" Annelies Kupper - Hindemith considered this his best work. I listened to the whole thing yesterday and it is brilliant, the piano and the singing, his capturing of the expressionistic atmosphere of the Rilke poems
    Rimsky-Korsakov - The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh - very good opera, I listened to the orchestral suite and to about 1 of the 3 hours of this opera.
    Suk - Asreal Symphony - wow, this has to be the best depiction of death in music, maybe only second to Mahler 9

    LOL. Mr. Kuhn has recorded a Schumann cycle and a Beethoven cycle with this ensemble. I've not heard the Schumann cycle but apparently its very good. I have a few of the Beethoven symphonies and they're pretty good. I only discovered the Brahms cycle due to my obsession with LvB symphony cycles. I have even more obscure cycles than these tho.

    I agree, Janspe. Before listening to Boulez' recording of the 8th I was morbidly curious to find out whether he was intending to entomb it under a deep layer of Darmstadt perma-frost. He didn't. Yes, I really like this one.
    '...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).
