    Haydn: Piano Sonatas 37, 40 & 52 plus Andante con variazioni in F minorAlfred Brendel on Philips

    Attachment 157567

    The last disc from this 4 CD set. Haydn at the top of his game, and the same can be said for Brendel!

    Listening to Enescu’s great opera Oedipe has piqued my interest into the relationship between classical music and ancient mythology. Thus:



    The luscious sounds that the LSO makes here under Monteux’s streamlined direction are truly incredible.
    "If we understood the world, we would realize that there is a logic of harmony underlying its manifold apparent dissonances." - Jean Sibelius

    "Art is an attempt to transport into a limited quantity of matter, modeled by man, an image of the infinite beauty of the entire universe." - Simone Weil

    "Ceaseless work, analysis, reflection, writing much, endless self-correction, that is my secret." - Johann Sebastian Bach

    Beethoven: Piano Concertos 2 & 5 'Emperor' Martin Helmchen with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin conducted by Andrew Manze on Alpha

    Beethoven piano concertos.jpg

    Nice accounts of these works.

    Ive already listened to the second piano concerto earlier in the evening and suggested even Beethoven didn't think it one his best works. I'm sure he felt the Emperor was one of his best, but strangely I have always had reservations with it, as I much prefer the 4th Piano Concerto.

    Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 "Eroica"
    Berlin Philharmonic - Karajan (1977)

    Probably the last leg of my 'Eroica' marathon for now, although I may possibly throw in Monteux's recording later.

    Beethoven, Waldstein Sonata

    I've been told that the sound on this merits a relegation to the trash heap, but I don't know any better, so it sounds okay to me. I

    Steven Stucky: Rhapsodies, Concerto for Orchestra
    Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Gil Rose

    Both of these are excellent pieces, but really Stucky's Concerto for Orchestra is especially a triumph. BMOP and Gil Rose are as sensational as always.

    Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 "Eroica"
    Vienna Philharmonic - Monteux (1957)

    Monteux's recording is in fact the last leg of my 'Eroica' marathon for today.

    William Schuman: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra
    Paul Zukofsky
    Boston Symphony Orchestra, Michael Tilson Thomas

    I've always thought this was a really cool concerto from my earliest acquaintance, and I still do.

    I was going to comment that it's been a long time without updating that edition, then I noticed that there is a new one which claims to have been remastered from the original 78s.



    Of course, the first edition also state it was remastered from 78s (without the word original). I wonder if the new edition sounds any different. (I have to old one.)

    Charles Wuorinen: Genesis
    Minnesota Chorale and Orchestra, Edo de Waart

    This piece has never quite stuck in my head. Giving it another go.

    Wolfgang Sawallisch conducts Schubert - The Complete Symphonies. Staatskapelle Dresden. Philips 5LP box. Release date unknown, but probably late 70’s. Originally 1967.

    Not sure how many of the Symphonies I’ll listen to, but starting at No. 1. Sounds very good after a long week.
