    Current Listening Vol V

    A new thread for the same subject matter.

    The previous thread, Current Listening Vol IV, has become another huge file, and because this particular thread is the most popular one on the site, we have created this new volume to continue posting.

    Second and final part of Gabriel Fauré's chamber works, plus one apiece by Bedřich Smetana and Antonín Dvořák.

    Note how all of Fauré's works are in minor keys. In fact, out of the ten major chamber works that he wrote only the first (Violin Sonata no. 1 in A) was in a major key.


    Violin Sonata no. 2 in E-minor op.108 (1916-17):
    Cello Sonata no. 1 in D-minor op.109 (1917):
    Piano Quintet no. 2 in C-minor op.115 (1919–21):
    Cello Sonata no. 2 in G-minor op.117 (1921):
    Piano Trio in D-minor op.120 (1922-23):
    String Quartet in E-minor op.121 (1923-24):





    Piano Trio in G-minor op.15 (1855 - rev. 1857):
    String Sextet in A op.48 (1878):

    '...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).

    I have been a huge fan of Nielsen's symphonies for years now. But I am just getting into some of his other major works. His Clarinet and Flute concerti are amazing. The Wind Quintet is also quite nice, more traditional than I have come to expect from Nielsen. The violin concerto seems a bit bloated on first listening but I'll see what I think after a few more listens.

    No idea why my attachments are no longer showing up in-line... Plus each time I try to post it takes me to a screen that says I have to wait 30 seconds between posts.
