    Shostakovich

    Symphony No.2 "oktober"
    Chor und Sympphonieorchester des Bayerichen Rundfunks

    Symphony No.12 "The Year 1917"
    Sympphonieorchester des Bayerichen Rundfunks

    Yesterday I really enjoyed the first CD from this set, especially Symphony No.15 with its references to Wagner was very special. I had also listened to the adagio in the performance with Ashkenazy but there the references to Wagner were less noticeable.
    So a very good start for this set.

    Bruckner, Symphony No. 8

    Well done. It isn't particularly "revelatory," but it sounds like the way I like the piece to sound.

    The Quatuor Ébène playing two classics (well, one classic and one soon to be classic I think), and an original composition by Raphaël Merlin, the cellist of the group. A very nice composition, similar to Dutilleux's and incorporating melodies from known jazz standards

    I love Jordi, I have not heard this one, I have it on now.

    In February of 2017 I saw him play in one off the smaller halls at Carnegie Hall. The program, Musica Nova: Venetian Influences in Musical Europe was one easily one of the finest moments of music I have ever been privy to.

    Included in the program were Dowland's Lachrimae pavan and The King of Denmark’s Galliard.

    A photo from the evening.
