    Recent listening

    Labyrinth. Khatia Buniatishvili. A concept album that explores the human psyche supposedly. It has works by Chopin Bach Glass Ligeti and others. She even included 4’33”. While some of the performances are stunning like a four hand arrangement from the Orchestral Suite No. 2, for me the sum was less than all the parts.



    Arnold: Symphonies 5 & 6. Andrew Penny, National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland. I don’t listen to Arnold much but I’m always impressed by the number of ideas he works in. This was a good performance.



    Vivaldi: Violin Concertos Duilio Galfetti, Violin - I Barocchisti - Diego Fasolis. Good for brightening up a rainy day. Well performed.



    Bruckner Symphony No. 9 Abbado, Vienna. I like this one for its beauty if not the transcendence of other performances.



    Bach: Goldberg variations. Glenn Gould. Spontaneous and joyful, still a favourite.

    Mozart, Symphony No. 35

    In case anyone thinks Mozart is boring, van Beinum proves them wrong by taking this symphony and electrifying it. Nobody is sleeping through this one.

    Time for some Australiana, in the form of a 19CD set of Percy Grainger's works from Chandos, various performers. Am picking and choosing my way through as the mood takes me.

    Glorious Carmen Transcription (1906) from Maurice! Such transcription quality only from my Master I have heard. Must listen.

    Buxtehude, Membra Jesu nostri - Koopman.



    I gave this recording a listen via Qobuz as I am considering the box below, any thoughts anyone has about the quality of these performances would be of interest, thanks.
