Friday October 15th
Johann Sebastian BACH (1685-1750)
Keyboard works Carl Seemann (piano)
rec. 1953-1958 DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON 477 8049 [59:34]
Carl Seemann brings bright, clear energies to his Bach program.
Andrea GABRIELI (1533-1585)
Motets & Organ Works Weser-Renaissance/Manuel Cordes
rec. 2018 CPO 555291-2 [69.07]
Despite some caveats, there is some
very fine singing heard here and some
wonderfully warm and nimble instrumental work.
Nikolay MYASKOVSKY (1881-1950)
Vocal Works Vol.
1, Violin Sonata Tatiana Barsukova, Elizaveta Pakhomova (soprano) Marina Dichenko (violin)
Olga Solovieva (piano)
rec. 2007-20 TOCCATA CLASSICS TOCC0355 [68:27] [GT]
A very valuable release.
Franz SCHUBERT (1797–1828)
Schwanengesang; String Quintet Julian
Prégardien (tenor), Martin Helmchen (piano); Christian Tetzlaff (violin), Tanja Tetzlaff (cello) rec. 2020
[61:22 + 51:52]
Anyone who wants these two works together can safely invest in this twofer.
Ralph VAUGHAN WILLIAMS
(1872-1958) Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis London SO/Sir Antonio Pappano
rec. 2020 LSO LIVE LSO0366
Not quite the equal of Pappano’s LSO recording of Symphonies
Nos. 4 and 6.
Leo Blech (conductor) 150thAnniversary Album Berlin State Opera Orchestra,
Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra,
London Symphony Orchestra
rec. 1919-30 PRISTINE AUDIO PASC627 [79:10 + 68:05] [JW]
Rigour and eccentricity: a doughty Wagnerian’s Beethoven and Schubert on 78.
Ivry Gitlis (violin) In memoriam "inédits et introuvables" rec. 1937-2010
RHINE CLASSICS RH-019 [9 CDs: 662:00]
