    Today's Beethoven quartets:

    1. CD 4 (minus the Grosse Fugue) from this ABQ set.





    Their Op. 130 is slower than the three I heard in the last couple of days but filled with delights.

    2. CD 7 from this Borodin Quartet set.





    This Op. 130 is closer to the ABQ speed but probably less of a delight. Finally, I have found a slight preference among the recordings I have of Op. 130 ... all the others are so filled with good things and are so different from each other that I am not able to choose between them.

    NP:

    Mahler
    Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor (Live recording, 1988)
    LPO
    Tennstedt




    Generally speaking, I prefer Tennstedt’s live recordings to his studio cycle. Thankfully, EMI (Warner) has boxed up all of theirs and the London Philharmonic house label has also boxed up their Tennstedt recordings. The odd recording out here is the one he did of the 3rd on ICA Classics, but then there’s several on the Profil label with German orchestras that I actually haven’t heard (or own). Anyway, this is an outstanding 5th from him and the LPO.

    I heard a bit of Jansons' Dvorak 7 on the radio today and thought to listen to the whole thing. An excellent performance.



    Elgar himself conducting his violin concerto (with a very young Menuhin) and cello concerto (with Beatrice Harrison). Both are exceptional performances and I would not argue with anyone who claimed they are top of the pile for those works. The sound is historical but quite acceptable and, with music making this great, I always find I'm forgetting any reservations about the sound within a minute or two of starting. This is a really great set!

    New arrival. Op. 50 represented a lacuna in my Haydn quartets collection, now corrected.

    A delightful day dedicated to listen (parsimoniously) this box with amazing works by Boccherini:

    Octet (Divertimento notturno) in G major op.38 No.4, G.470
    Concerto for Cello & Orchestra No.10 in D major, G.483
    Concerto for Cello & Orchestra No.11 C major, G.573
    Symphony in C minor op.41, G.519
    Symphony in D minor op.12 No.4, G.506 'La casa del diavolo'
    Anner Bylsma, Jeanne Lamon & Tafelmusik
    Sonata for Cello & b.c. in B-flat major G.8
    Sonata for Cello & b.c. in F major G.9
    Anner Bylsma, Kenneth Slowik, Bob van Asperen

    Just to cite some of them. And I don't even started with the string quintets!



    Trivia: I had the opportunity to see the five Stradivarius Palatinos in the Palacio Real, Madrid. But four of them, the traditional string quartet, are decorated and are called Cuarteto Palatino or Cuarteto Decorado. I suppose a lot of Boccherini music was played in these.
