    Monteverdi, Vespers

    This is Gardiner's first recording of the vespers, back when he was still hungry. The word that comes to mind from this choir is verve. They are on the edge of their seats or on the tips of their toes, giving it everything they've got.

    Presto currently has Harmonia Mundi 24-bit FLACs on special offer, so I snapped this up.

    Weinberg - Symphonies 2 and 21
    Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Gidon Kremer

    Inspired by Malx’s SQ choice this week, I’ve been getting acquainted with this fascinating composer. Yesterday it was the cello concerto with Rostropovich, now these haunting and dreamy works. Stark yet deeply beautiful soundscapes, portraying something of the pale Russian winter sun shining over the cruel Soviet regime (highly arbitrary interpretation alert...)

    I am glad to see this Brazilian composer getting some attention. A precursor to Villa Lobos and Milhaud, Nazareth is hardly remembered today.

    If you haven't heard this recording, it offers a nice selection and with the addition of the bandolim, a more idiomatic performance of his music:

    Ernesto Nazareth madeira amorim.jpg

    Maria Teresa Madeira (piano) and Pedro Amorim (bandolim)
