    Pugg, can I assume that the Liszt lieder has your recommendation? I have enjoyed music from both the singer and pianist in the past.
    You are right, I always spin things I like, no matter what critics saying about it, ( see Kontrapunctus signature) this two made a wonderful disc together, you have to like Liszt though.

    Third and final part of Franz Liszt's orchestral works this afternoon (with a break for the Scotland-England rugby match), plus a nicely-sung but rather woolly-sounding Via Crucis.


    Via crucis (The Fourteen Stations of the Cross) for soloists, mixed choir and organ S53 [Text: V. Fortunatus/P. Gerhardt/J. Rist/Book of Matthew/Book of Luke/Roman Catholic Liturgy] (1878-79):




    Piano Concerto no. 1 in E-flat S124 (1835-56):
    Piano Concerto no. 2 in A S125 (1849-61):
    Totentanz (Danse Macabre) for piano and orchestra S126/2 (by 1849 - rev. 1853 and 1859):




    Faust Symphony for orchestra, with finale for solo tenor and chorus S108 [Text: J.W. von Goethe] (1854 - rev. 1857–61 and 1880):

    '...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).

    Dame Joan Sutherland BBC Recitals, 1958-61



    Anyone who question Sutherland as the greatest coloratura soprano of all time should listen to this CD. She sings with complete control in all the arias. I think that Mozart had her in mind for the Constanza aria. Sutherland before 1975 as a dramatic coloratura soprano is simply without peer in this and any other century. A must have!
