    Mostly Maria Callas for me today, including this album of arias from French operas:




    And just now listened to Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No. 1 with David Oistrakh and Philharmonia Orchestra/Gennady Rozhdestvensky, from this:

    Happy Haydn Birthday!

    Haydn: Symphonies 63, 43, 28. Giovanni Antonini & Il Giardino Armonico. Excellent performances, espcially Le Roxolana. Also on the disc are Bartok’s Romanian Folk Dances.



    Haydn, A. Stamitz & C. Stamitz: Concertos. Ana de la Vega, Ramón Ortega Quero, Trondheim Soloists & Geir Inge Lotsberg. Concertos arranged for flute and oboe. Delightful.



    Haydn & Hummel: Trumpet Concertos. Alison Balsom & Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. Plus Torelli & Neruda.



    Haydn Violin Concertos 1, 3, 4. Lisa Jacobs & The String Soloists. Pleasant enough. Soloist was excellent.



    Haydn: String Quartets, Op. 20, Volume 1, Nos. 2, 3 & 5. Dudok Quartet Amsterdam. They have great tone and a well considered approach to these. Looking forward to their next Haydn disc.

    Johann Sebastian Bach: Johannespassion, BWV245. Masaaki Suzuki, Bach Collegium Japan.

    I don't have my book in front of me so I'm not following the story, but I think I can remember the gist of of it from Sunday school. —I'm just listening to the incredible music. Bach had a great sense of dramatic flair that I wish he employed more often, and never better than here. I listened to the B minor Mass this morning, one of his other great choral works, and the two works are completely different in character, with this one resembling a Handelian opera more than what we traditionally think of as a sacred work, from Bach or anyone. This recording is amazing, and in great recorded sound. I got it for free several months ago from a local record store, whose owner forgot to put a price tag on it, and decided to throw it in free of charge along with my other purchases

    Right now: Mozart, Piano Concertos - G-Dur / In G Major / KV 453 · C-Dur / In C Major / KV 467, with Geza Anda and the Camerata Academica Salzburg. Very nice DG LP from the remoted 1964, with very good sound. I need some Mozart to calm down my nerves…
