Pohjola Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2 Finnish Radio Symphony Orch/Oramo

This was a happy accident! Was searching for something else, and came across this new-to-me composer. Lush, richly orchestrated and cleanly performed. Both are modern, but very accessible works. The 1st was composed in 2002, the 2nd in 2006.

I really like that recording. His string quartets are very good, too.

I'm currently addicted to this work. It's actually caused me to re-listen to several works of this instrumentation like the Ravel, Martinů, Honegger, Schulhoff et. al.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Symphony No. 36 in C major, KV 425, “Linz”
Leonard Bernstein: Wiener Philharmoniker (1984)

Beautiful, string-saturated playing from the Vienna Philharmonic. Bernstein is no Szell here, but he capitalizes on the orchestra's strengths to create a really lovely recording. I don't think that the criticisms often given to Bernstein apply all that much in this recording; he acquits himself well.

An evening of Hildegard von Bingen at the Basilique de Saint-Denis in Paris in 2014.


In the magnificent Basilica of Saint-Denis, France, star trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf, the maîtrise de Radio France, as well as a brass ensemble including Clément Saunier interpret and recompose Hildegard von Bingen's Canticles. The music of the 12th century composer and abbess finds new life under the fingers of Franco-Lebanese artist, laureate of the 2016 César Award for best film soundtrack, who deploys all of his creativity and sensitivity along the course of this concert.
One of the most poignant elements of this performance is Maalouf's use of unique extended techniques to recreate the plaintive and passionate chant of higher voices or to magnify harmonies. If one listens closely enough, one might also find virtuosic prowess such as melodies played on the quarter tone. This atypical program, along with its wonderful interpreters, allow us to immerse ourserlves in a new, captivating universe that we do not want to leave.

I want to introduce you guys to a great love of mine...



On April 16th (2021) Cappella Records is proud to present the release of Hymns of Kassianí performed by Cappella Romana, Alexander Lingas, music director.
Discover the world’s earliest music by a female composer: 9th-century nun, poet, and hymnographer Kassianí (Kassía).
The same men and women of Cappella Romana who brought you the Lost Voices of Hagia Sophia bestseller (44 weeks on Billboard), now sing the earliest music we have by a female composer, including long-suppressed hymns recorded here for the first time.
They close with two medieval versions of her beloved hymn for Orthodox Holy Week.
Cappella Romana is the world’s leading ensemble in the field of medieval Byzantine chant. Building on its extensive catalogue of this repertoire, Hymns of Kassianí is its 25th release. This is the first of a planned series to record all of Kassianí’s surviving works.
