    Currently listening:



    Bedrich Smetana: String Quartet No.1 in E minor, "From My Life". Stamitz Quartet.

    Haydn Symphony # 91 E flat major:

    "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have." Thomas Jefferson

    “A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned — this is the sum of good government.” – Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, 1801

    I think the Naxos motets are a very good alternative to Jochum. But maybe you prefer wider vibrato, and if so, you wouldn't have a problem with Jochum.

    Anyway, I'm following my advice now and cranking up the volume on the Te Deum.

    Default A " failed" Haydn quartet cycle,

    there were two attempts to record all of Haydn's string quartets, both the Pro Arte Quartet and the Schneider Quartet failed to reach completion due lack of funds, both are magnificent failures.

    CD12

    Joseph Haydn
    String Quartet no.41 in D major
    String Quartet no.60 in G major
    String Quartet no.61 in D minor

    Bruckner: Symphony No. 3 Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by Mariss Jansons on RCO Live
    Bruckner Symphonies .jpg

    Bruckner's Third Symphony from this rather good 2 CD set (with the Fourth Symphony). I listened to the First Symphony earlier this evening, and this is a significant advance on that. I'm not familiar with the Second Symphony, I guess I should remedy that.

    Hopefully I'll take in the Fourth Symphony tomorrow evening.

    Dmitri Shostakovich: Cello Concerto in E-flat major, op.107. Mistislav Rostropovich, Eugene Ormandy, Philadelphia Orchestra.

    Man, I don't like all of the Ormandy/Philadelphia recordings, but when they're good, they're damn good. This is one of those times. I think this was the Western première recording of the work and you can tell they're playing as if to prove to the world that it is great music. I don't think as highly of the Oistrakh recording of the VC on the same CD; I have yet to really fall in love with Oistrakh's playing, oddly.
