    I own the cycle, of course. He's awesome, better than St Clair.

    Other than almost killing myself with a very long walk on a very hot, humid day

    Too complex for the congested Melodyia recording. Can't really judge a lot of the performance because it's too compressed and ratty sounding. Very unfortunate.
    So I turned to the Chung, virtues of a good conductor (I don't think I've ever been anywhere he conducted, interesting to not have ever seen a reasonably prolific guy like this), a magnificent orchestra and a recording that lets them sound.

    This work is off the rails, more material than should be packed into a single symphony. I don't think he had complete control of what he wanted to do yet. I really like it, but it has the constant sense of "too much".
    That sort of fugato thing for the strings in the first movement is a wow moment if ever there were one. Philadelphia strings indeed.
    I find much of the material very attractive. But i still say it might have been pruned to good advantage. But then it wouldn't have been the unhinged masterwork it is. I'm sure that's in the Russian indications in the score: unhinged.

    Did I mention that it's hot?

    Haydn: Creation Mass & Missa 'rorate coeli desuper' Collegium Musicum 90 conducted by Richard Hickox on Chandos

    Haydn mass.png

    Two masses by Haydn.]

    The Missa 'rorate coeli desuper' is a very early work which was lost for a long period. And there has been some dispute if it really is Haydn. Late in his life Haydn created an index of his works - and this is listed, but it is a thematic index and the theme listed does not exactly match that in this work. But that may just be an error in the index. It's quite possible that this Mass was produced with guidance from a teacher. Anyway it is a long way from the mature Haydn masses.

    The Creation Mass is one of Haydn's late great masses. It is so named because in one section it quotes a theme from the oratorio 'Creation' - then a major hit. The recording includes an alternative version of the Gloria (as well as the original). The original contained a musical 'joke' and the wife of Emperor Francis II (Marie Therese) was offended by this in the context of the mass. Now Marie Therese was an avid collector of Haydn's music, and Haydn provided her with an alternative non offensive Gloria!

    I just read Sophocles’s original play of the same name yesterday, so I figured I’d follow it up with Strauss’s thrilling opera. It seems to be a polarizing work for some folks, but for me it captures all the immense horror and suffering of Greek tragedy, wrapped in Strauss’s signature masterful orchestration and dramatic sense. Inge Borkh turns in one of the greatest dramatic tour de forces I’ve ever heard.
