Johann Sebastian BACH (1685-1750) Goldberg Variations -
Glenn Gould (piano)
rec. 1955 PRISTINE AUDIO [RMo] I would not, on this occasion, recommend Pristine over Sony.
Hans von BÜLOW (1830-1884) Piano Music Volume 2 -
Mark Anderson (piano)
rec. 2012 NIMBUS [CC] Writing of splendid finish and invention in performances of great panache.
Dieterich BUXTEHUDE (c1637-1707) Complete Harpsichord Music - Simone
Stella (harpsichord) rec. 2010 BRILLIANT CLASSICS [JV] High quality at budget price.
Claude DEBUSSY (1862-1918) Reflets dans l'eau Images Books I & II and other works -
Kotaro Fukuma (piano)
rec. 2012 EDITIONS HORTUS [BR] Another excellent album by a first-class pianist who’s still flying under the radar.
August KLUGHARDT (1847-1902) Symphony 5, Im Frïhling,
Anhaltische Philharmonie Dessau/Antony Hermus
rec. 2012 CPO [RB] Klughardt’s is by no means an original voice but he makes pleasing music and we need more of it.
Wolfgang RIHM (b. 1952) Dionysos Johannes Martin Kränzle (baritone)
Matthias Klink (tenor) Mojca Erdmann (soprano) Vienna State Opera Concert Ch, Deutsches SO/Ingo Metzmacher rec. 2010 EUROARTS [PCG] It is doubly valuable to have this recording
on DVD - and so well presented too.
Antoni RUTKOWSKI (1859-1884) Piano Trio,
Violin Sonata -
Paweł Kukliński (violin)
Tadeusz Samerek (cello)
Rafał Lewandowski (piano)
rec. 2013 ACTE PRÉALABLE [JW] A little known figure from the Polish nineteenth century.
Pablo de SARASATE (1844-1908) Music for Violin and Orchestra Vol. 4 - Tianwa Yang
(violin) Navarra SO/Ernest Martínez Izquierdo rec. 2009 NAXOS [BR] Most of the best music was in earlier volumes,
but this is still lovely and brilliantly played.
Giuseppe TARTINI (1692-1770) Violin Concertos Vol. 17 - L'Arte
dell'Arco rec. 2010 DYNAMIC [Byz] L'Arte dell'Arco's cycle is truly worthy of the great composer's name
… thoroughgoingly impressive.
Giuseppe VERDI (1813-1901) Messa da Requiem - Dimitra Theodossiou
(soprano) Sonia Ganassi (mezzo) Francesco Meli (tenor) Riccardo Zanellato
(bass) Parma Teatro Regio Ch & O/Yuri Temirkanov rec. 2011 C
MAJOR [DM] Dire soloists and dull conducting; a dismal performance
of this great work.
