    This year one of my long-term listening projects has been to listen to all the major works of Berlioz throughout the year. He is a composer that I run very hot and cold on and can't take in large quantities, but his music is always full of life and passion. This great work - one of my favorite Requiems - is probably my most treasured composition of his oeuvre. How I would love to see it live, preferably in a cathedral. It's a coin flip for favorite recording between this impassioned recording by Munch and Bernstein's equally committed rendition with a French orchestra and chorus.
    Bernstein has the best Lacrimosa but Simoneau in the Sanctus on this recording has ruined every other Sanctus for me. It's too good.

    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." Hamlet

    [QUOTE=Manxfeeder;2137893]If you want to explore Victoria further, this is a nice set, though Michael Noone tends toward coolness over passion, so I'd recommend listening to sound clips to see if his style floats your boat. The Tallis Scholars also have a well-done recording of Alonso Lobo, and I like their Victoria Requiem also.



    I had forgotten about Lobo, I have this one, quite good too. Thanks for your advice.

    This is a disc I've highlighted before - for me it is a great alternative to the traditional style of recording these trios from the likes of the Beaux Arts Trio. I hasten to add there is nothing wrong with the traditional style but a wee bit of variety is never a bad thing in my book.

    Haydn, Piano Trios Op 75 Nos 1 & 2 - Trio Goya (Kati Debretzeni, violin / Sebastian Comberti, cello / Maggie Cole, fortepiano).

    I've not had a lot of time for music over the last couple of days and even less for posting about it. Yesterday I did get to hear:

    The Chiaroscuro Quartet playing Schubert's 13th quartet (D 804 - "Rosamunde") and Mozart's K 465 ("Dissonance")



    ----

    Schubert's 15th quartet (D 997), the 10th (D 87) and 12th (D 703 - single movement) played by the ABQ

    This disc landed on the hall mat today deposited there by one of Royal Mails finest (I have to say that as my next door neighbour is my postman).

    Janáček: String Quartet No. 1 'The Kreutzer Sonata' - Pavel Haas Quartet.

    Wow - this is a super performance, in great sound - so good I played it twice.
