    Some of the fillers for the Mackerras Jánaček opera sets.

    The Cunning Little Vixen - Orchestral suite
    Jenůfa - Jealousy Overture

    Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra - Sir Charles Mackerras

    Capriccio, for piano (left hand) and wind instruments
    Concertino for piano and chamber ensemble

    Paul Crossley (piano), members of the London Sinfonietta - David Atherton

    Lachian Dances

    London Philharmonic Orchestra - François Huybrechts

    The trouble with fill-ups on opera sets is I rarely listen to them. If I've been listening to the opera, I'm quite happy to stop listening when it finishes and then I forget about them so rarely pick them out to listen to them separately. Trying to repair that omission today.

    Incidentally, I have been listening the The Cunning Little Vixen yesterday. What an amazing opera and orchestration.

    Jean Sibelius - various works part seven for this morning.


    Barden [The Bard] - tone poem for orchestra op.64 (1913):




    Two Serenades for violin and orchestra op.69 (1912 and 1913):

    Incidental music for the tragic pantomime Scaramouche by Poul Knudsen for orchestra op.71 (1913):

    '...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).

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: String Quintet No.6 in E-flat major, K614. Amadeus Quartet + Cecil Aronowitz on second viola

    Love Mozart's string quintets. I need to get around to working my way through the quartets now; I only know a couple of them. I might get the Amadeus Quartet set. I love the sound and interpretive qualities of this recording and would expect them to be just as effective with the SQs.

    Leonard Bernstein: Mass: A Theatre Piece for Singers, Dancers & Players. Leonard Bernstein, Norman Scribner Choir, Berkshire Boy Choir, unknown orchestra, w/ Alan Titus in the central vocal role.

    Had to set aside a Sunday morning to listen to this for the first time. So far, so good. Really enjoying the all-encompassing nature of the music, and the structure and orchestration are just brilliant. This is about as good as it gets for postmodern quasi-liturgical music, despite the less-than-steadfast spirituality...
