    Default Drean recording

    Hi all. I would be interested in your ideas on one hypothetical question. What would be your dream recording (composer, piece, soloists, orchestra, conductor) that doesn't exist? They may be living or late artists, even those whose artistic paths have never intersected. Imagination has no limits...

    My dream could be realized, and I hope it is someday:

    Reinhold Gliere: Symphony no. 3 "Ilya Murometz". Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Neeme Jarvi conducting. Chandos SACD.

    There is no better orchestra for this massive score, Chandos has as terrific track record in Chicago and there's no conductor out there who understands that late-romantic Russian repertoire like Jarvi.

    A Mahler 9th from Furtwangler and the BPO would be the absolute height of ecstasy for me. Also, a complete Beethoven cycle from Beecham and Bach from Emil Gilels would be great.

    In my opinion, a talented person with genius skills and imagination would benefit the world greatly by working.

    Brahms Symphonies complete, Carlos Kleiber, Vienna PO,
    Beethoven Symphonies complete Carlos Kleiber, Vienna PO,
    Beethoven Missa Solemnis Carlos Kleiber, Vienna PO,
    Beethoven Missa Solemnis Furtwangler VPO or BPO
    If VPO or BPO not available any good one would do. Examples: SFSO, CSO, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Boston, Chicago, LPO, NDR so, NYPO, LSO, Philharmonia, RCGO, BRSO etc.

    If had to only choose 1, it might be Brahms 1 Kleiber.

    I’ve been into vocal music recently, so my dream of the week would be Mendelssohn’s six duets, Op. 63, with Kathleen Ferrier (mezzo/contralto) and Olaf Bär (baritone) accompanied by Gerald Moore. I’ve heard these with two female voices (soprano, mezzo) and a female and male (soprano, baritone). I think the contralto+baritone duet with my two favorite voices would be so beautiful with these Lieder.

    I want to hear the Levin completion of the Mozart requiem performed at Bohm's or Celibidache's tempo (taking over 1 hour for full performance). Does anyone know of any recording that satisfies that requirement?

    Carlos Kleiber (still with the VPO) doing Beethoven's 3rd. If he can't do that, I'll settle for the 9th.

    Martin Steiner playing Bach's Passacaglia. This was available on vinyl aeons ago, but as afaik has never seen the light of day in digital. Lost to the world, I fear.

    Mstislav Rostropovich recording the 3rd Britten Cello Suite.

    Or a studio recording of Gloriana conducted by Benjamin Britten.

    Am I allowed Johann Sebastian Bach conducting his own Cantata BWV 140?

    Oh well, in that case, I'll take Benjamin Britten conducting all ten Mahler Symphonies, please (with the tenth being the performing edition he himself composed for the purpose).

    Well seeing that Dizwell's mentioned the man himself, I'll join in too...
    Britten never recorded much in the way of standard piano repertoire but if he had, I would have liked to hear him in some of the big concertos, or perhaps the complete Mozart and Beethoven sonatas, or the clever finger work in some Schumann. I'd also include Bach and earlier keyboard works too if I could wave that wand...(not a euphemism).

    Britten's facility and touch was unsurpassed and he is rightly considered as one of the 20thC's finest pianists. Gerald Moore, who was considered the best accompanist in the world said he was the second best compared to Britten.

    We'd never hear any Brahms though as Britten didn't rate him.

    Liked him a lot in his youth, but rapidly went off him, to the point of disgust, in fact.

    Emil Gilels completing Beethoven sonata Cycle
    Emil Gilels to do a complete Bach cycle
    Sviatoslav Richter completing both Schubert and Beethoven sonata cycles


    Then of course provide modern recording possibilities to those in the below list:
    Sergei Rachmaninoff
    Heinrich Neuhaus
    Samuil Feinberg
    Maria Yudina
    Vladimir Sofronitsky
    Alfred Cortot
    Artur Schnabel
    Edwin Fischer (younger years)
    William Kapell


    amongst some other that are escaping my memory at the moment.

    On top of that if we could get Franz List to honor us with some of his own recordings!!!!
