  1. 2021 Listening Project - Feb 28

    First, three more brief pieces from the Brilliant "French Piano Concertos" box set.

    Cécille Chaminade
    Concertstuck for Piano and Orchestra
    Rosario Marciano, piano
    Luxembourg Radio Orchestra
    Louis de Froment, conductor

    I'd never heard of Chaminade before purchasing the box set. I found this piece enjoyable. I'd definitely listen to her other works.

    Darius Milhaud
    5 Études
    Michael Korstick, piano

  2. 2021 Listening Project - Feb 27

    Bach
    Sonata for Solo Violin, No. 1
    Sergiu Luca, violin
    Nathan Milstein, violin
    Paul Galbraith, guitar (his own transcription)

    I own three recordings of the complete Bach solo violin (Luca, Milstein, & Galbraith), plus Hilary Hahn's incomplete set from 1997. I am going to try to listen to all recordings for a given piece on the same day, to try to compare them. The music is sufficiently great that I think that won't get repetitive.
