    Carl Orff: Carmina Burana. Herbert Blomstedt, San Francisco Symphony & Chorus. Not going to listen to the whole thing, probably, but enjoying what I'm hearing, for now.

    Edit: There is a cult-classic black metal album, Murmüure by Murmüure, that samples the Primo Vere movement from this work for its intro. So cool hearing that connection!

    ^ Wasn't Orff a "musical" Fascist?

    Participating in the "1980-2000 Listening Group", I have listened to the piece Living Toys three times. It has been quite a while since I heard it and was instructive to actually give it some time and focus.

    Not sure what you mean by that. I have heard that personally speaking he had ties to the Nazi party. Are you suggesting that this is something that is audible in his music? I don't think I'm familiar enough with Orff or his music to comment on any fascism, musical or otherwise, in Orff. It's a big charge to level against someone.

    Frédéric Chopin: 14 Valses. Dinu Lipatti. I got this CD last week and this is my first time listening to it. I am a new convert to Lipatti's pianism, on wonderful display here, and in perfectly acceptable mono sound. These works appear to be his calling card, along with music of Enescu and Brahms. But today is the birthday of Frédéric Chopin, so that's what I'll focus on for today. Happy birthday to the master!

    I believe he was an enthusiastic member of the Nazi party. Perhaps inspired by this, many critics have found musical Fascism in parts of Carmina. I suppose there must be defenses of him against these accusations but I haven't seen them. I thought you might have had a take on the subject which is why I asked. I agree it is a big charge.

    That's very possible. I'll have to do some reading up on it. But my first impression didn't include any traces of fascism to my ears, anyway, it seemed to be a really fun, somewhat lighthearted piece (despite the ultra-serious O Fortuna that starts it all).
