    Default Toccata Classics

    Hello TC Members:

    Berkshire Record Outlet has quite a few Toccata Classics restocks. Any recommendations?

    I have the Schnittke disc 'Discoveries' (TOCC 0091) which can be found on pages 126-150. If you like Schnittke but are unfamiliar with the pieces on this disc I say go for it - it's a good gap-filler as none of the works are to be found on either Chandos or BIS, the two labels which have served Schnittke the best.

    I'd be tempted to go for Ernst Krenek's Piano Concertos vol.1 (TOCC 0323) as well - that one's on the final page.
    '...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).

    The Festival Overture by Leopold Damrosch I would recommend and the playing of the Azura Orchestra (at the private university in California) is excellent. You can hear the whole work and other complete works free at toccataclassics.com -- applies to at least some other recordings too. The Egon Kornauth might be worth checking out too.

    The disc of piano music by Nikolai Peyko. I haven't heard this one, but I enjoyed volume 2.

    'Music for Alfred Hitchcock' is good if you like film music.
    See the results of my polls: most-liked composers and most-liked works.

    don't know if you'd count this but Schumann's Toccata in C is awesome.

    The Leipzigs' performances of Beethoven's String Quartets are well worth having. Very well recorded and energetic performances. Buy with confidence.
