Just returned from two days of the quarterfinals of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. 
18 pianist x 40 minutes of play.  Have to admit we skipped some of them from sheer fatigue.
I won't be spinning any Prokofiev on the turntable for a while as it seemed that ever other competitor played something by him.

I heard the Nigel Kennedy Simon Rattle Lark Ascending on the radio the other night.
This is a truly amazing performance from two of the best at their craft.
Recording is incredible, you can hear all the wood on his string, but the compression is not obnoxious.
I've owned the CD for years but everytime I hear it again I am so amazed.
"Kennedy" as he likes to be called now is very different player than the regular crop of new young violinists. Almost like the last of the old breed. His musical presence is enormous, and cocky. Love it!
And this is Rattle with City of Birmingham where he made his mark on the world before moving onto London Philharmonic and global stardom.
The Elgar Concerto ain't so bad either.  :thumb:
Great album, not to be missed!

Philipp Heinrich Erlebach: Trio Sonatas



"In 1694 Philipp Heinrich Erlebach, kapellmeister at the court of Count Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, published a collection of trio sonatas for a typical German ensemble of the period: violin, viola da gamba, and bass continuo. Pairing the violin with the viola da gamba seems to exemplify the fusion of Italian and French musical traditions, and this same fusion is found in the forms of these compositions, with an Italianate sonata followed by a suite of French dances – a model that Johann Sebastian Bach would later recall. These sonata-suites are endowed with undeniable charm and an infectious liveliness, and François Joubert-Caillet, with his ensemble L’Achéron, give us a particularly seductive interpretation of them."---from the liner notes

This is a tiny piece of the now completed project by Decca to record, for the first time on period instruments, all 107 of Haydn's symphonies, 79 of which were with the AAM under Hogwood.  The performances here are quite good while the sound is just OK.  The ongoing Haydn symphonies project on the Alpha label by Giovanni Antonini with Il Giardino Armonico and Kammerorchester Basel is my first choice for these superb works.

Franz Joseph Haydn: Symphonies Nos. 61, 66 and 69



This latest installment of Antonini’s traversal of Haydn’s symphonies for Alpha is particularly welcome for me in that it perfectly fills gaps in my in my collection as all of these works were new to my ears. Highly recommended!

Hey!  I'm listening to that exact recording right now too.  Exceptional recording quality and reference level performances.  Man they really know how to make Haydn exciting and compelling to listen to.  Other performers should take note!  :lol:

Hey!
   I've noticed this series of Vivaldi work on CD. I love the Four Season and that's pretty much the only one I know from Vivaldi. So, any recommendation of which of these series should I check out first?

The entire series is great.  The ones with Fabio Biondi are especially great.

Hey!

   Thanks I'll definitely check them out. I love the Four Seasons and after I watched PBS "Now Hear This" about Vivaldi that got me interested in his other works that were not well known.
