    Extraordinary music. These works sound creepy at moments.

    Ernest Bloch's only opera, written in his mid-twenties, in Paris and in Geneva. He invested a lot of orchestral music in that work and it's wonderful! The story is told as much by the orchestra than by the singers. The style is a successful mix of Mussorskian drama and Wagnerian leitmotiv. While I enjoyed the music a lot, I was less appreciative of the French pronunciation of German speakers. Call me old-fashioned but I like to understand what is sung. Thankfully, an English translation was done in the 1970s and this opera has been performed in Manhattan, Long Beach, and Chicago.

    In the chronology of Ernest Bloch's artistic development this opera coincides with his realization that he could not make a living just by composing music. Opinions differ on when this opera was completed but clearly a long period of compositional inactivity followed, until his first Jewish cycle, beginning in 1912. During those years (1906-1912?), Bloch helped his family business, lectured at the Geneva conservatory, conducted orchestras, and raised his family.
    I really like when posts like this one are informative and not mere pictures or text that already appear on the cover art.

    Don't encourage me. I'll write long posts that nobody will read. lol I do like to listen to music in its biographical context. Sometimes personal life and composition intersect nicely.

    Very fine Mahler's 2nd, with (also) super sound and material quality. The item is out of print and this makes it also (even more) suitable for collectors. (Esoteric SACD from DG)

    just the Psalm so far, big, big rich piece. Needs another listen but worthwhile, interested to hear Salome tonight. This is slightly out of the mainstream because of the dominance of German repertoire in concert life and recordings, but the French tradition is worth exploration. Schmitt's music for 2 pianos has appeared here and some of it is fantastic.
