    I have the Pearl restorations. I don't know the comparison really. Schnabel is a challenge for me. Never been my go to Beethoven. Better in the earlier works.

    This morning, a miniature choral music journey from one end of Europe to the other - Renaissance Spain to Russian Orthodox liturgy...


    Victoria - Missa O Magnum Mysterium


    Schnittke - Choral Concerto

    The Schnittke is surely one of the most moving a cappella works I have ever heard, worthy to stand alongside Rachmaninoff’s Vespers as a sterling example of the extraordinary power of Russian Orthodox music.
    "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

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

    I quite like Wuorinen and have all the Naxos recordings of hid chamber works, but I've never heard this - looks interesting, will give it a go ....

    I bought that box a while back for £20 and to be quite honest, I was a little disappointed. I found it a bit low-voltage for the great man. I'd been listening to his 1950s Philharmonia Beethoven (Pristine remaster) and perhaps that's a hard act to follow.
