What classical music you listening to, luv?
« on: 16 Jun 2009, 06:05 am »
Last night, Vaughn Williams- Pastoral Sym and no.4 (EMI).  Tonite, Ravel's Gaspard de la nuit and other piano works - Boris Berezovsky (Teldec).  Late at night listening for me.

Listening to Hamelin's CD of Chopin piano music.  Surprisingly subtle and musical, for someone that specializes in more breathtaking fare.

Now, I'm listening to the Art of Fugue (Bach), the Aimard recording is top-flight from a sonic standpoint:

I want one!  Have both works by different orchestras on vinyl.  Favorites of mine, too. 

Romances and Elegies for Viola and Piano- Kim Kashkashian and Robert Levine (ECM New Series).  Very nicely recorded and enchanting stuff (various composers).  Whoa!  My Enigma IS by Boult with the LPO!   :beer:

Are the last two considered classical music? 

Anyway, been enjoying a disc of very interesting early 20th century Russian piano music by Alexei Stanchinsky. To quote the blurb on the insert (which might be a little over the top): "Declared incurably insane by the age of twenty, and dead, perhaps by his own hand, six years later, Stanchinsky is a lost genius in Russian music, writing in a late Romantic style that may suggest Scriabin, by turns epic, nervy, voluptuous, abrasive, bleak, visionary, sombre and cynical."

Alicia de Larrocha playing the piano music of Manuel de Falla.  1975 London ffrr.  She is just marvelous, especially on Spanish music and de Falla is well worth seeking out if you don't know him.  Before this I was playing "A Connoisser Society Recording" of Manitas de Plata (Silver Hands) a sobriquet given to flamenco guitarist extraordinaire Ricardo Ballardo.  He is a Spaniard of Gypsy origins and one of the monsters of the instrument - you must hear it to believe it.  I guess it is a Spanish night - who would have guessed.

I'm the dummy what named this topic "what are you listening to" forgetting that if you saw it on the home page and wanted to rave about a new punk album or something, a member (clever remark) would click on it and be in the wrong place without knowing it, maybe.  So, I changed it.  Mo betta, now.

Young feller, a rhumba from Viva Manitas de Plata! on Connoisuer Society willl be heard at the forthcoming analog meet with the audio group I belong to courtesy of me.  Pretty amazing that a recording this good can be made with a portable tape deck and a couple of mics.   Would that be the recording you are refering to?  Tho Ballardo is on several of his, me thinks.  Cheers.

Good point!

Randy, would you mind to provide a link for that CD (or LP)?
Thanks
