    I am enjoying music from St. Malachy Roman Catholic Church - The Actors' Chapel this morning as I do every Sunday morning since the pandemic began.

    Mennin is a tremendous symphonist. His symphonies are well worth the listen.

    Dmitri Shostakovich - symphonies, concertos etc. part six for late afternoon and early evening.


    Symphony no.13 in B-flat minor [Babi-Yar] for bass, bass choir and orchestra op.113 [Text: Yevgeny Yevtushenko] (1962):




    The Execution of Stepan Razin - cantata for bass, mixed choir and orchestra op.119 [Text: Yevgeny Yevtushenko] (1964):




    Cello Concerto no.2 in G-minor op.126 (1966):




    Violin Concerto no.2 in C-sharp minor op.129 (1967):

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    ὃν οἱ θεοὶ φιλοῦσιν ἀποθνῄσκει νέος [Those whom the gods love die young] - Menander

    Bartok-Sonata-Argerich-Freire.jpg

    Like the Bartok more with each hearing, but still working on it. Solti makes something of the Hungarian nature and the second movement as Hungarian night music. Makes me think about Laszlo Krasznahorkai's novels, which are certainly dominated by darkness and meandering in the night. The book translated as The Melancholy of Resistance, made into a dark movie by Bela Tarr.

    i understand more of the structure from having listened to and watched the YouTube of Solti and Perahia's rehearsals. I would like to hear their recording, but I can't imagine that the virtuosity of Argerich and Freire can be bettered, probably can't be matched. Actually, I know that Argerich can't be matched.

    The Ravel is gorgeous as well, of course, but a slightly more indestructibly lovely piece. I don't know, this piano version gives any orchestral performance I've heard a run for its money.
