  1. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Listening to this now via Spotify. Wow. I'm going to have to get this CD!
  2. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Brahms: String Quartet No. 1 in C minor, Op. 51 / New Budapest String Quartet Lovely.

    I'm now listening to Hermann Scherchen & the London SO perform Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique:
  4. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Yes. I agree. It's a desert-island disc for me as well.

    Now spinning this LP, prompted by soulpope's G├ęza Anda records earlier in this thread: I love the absolute directness of Anda's Chopin playing. No perfume, no fussiness. "Manly" Chopin. Not that other approaches to this music are off-track. It's just that Anda draws out aspects of this music that others sometimes overlook -- a sort of pithy strength.

    That looks interesting! NP: Brahms: Lieder / Margaret Price, James Lockhart (Orfeo) Exquisite in every way.

    Thanks for the heads-up on Izlaz, mjazzg! I wasn't familiar with that one. I do have several of Texier's other recordings on Label Bleu with his European bands. . . . I'm probably in the minority here, but I gotta admit that I prefer Colonel Skopje to some of Texier's more well-known records like Mosaic Man. NP: We all hear things differently. Often one person's dross is another person's gold -- and vice versa.

    Henri Texier - Colonel Skopje (Evidence/Label Bleu) I discovered this CD, recorded in 1988, just last year. It's wonderful. Joe Lovano & John Abercrombie fans take note!

    Enrico Pieranunzi - The Day After the Silence (Alfa Music) Richie Beirach - Common Heart (Owl) Yeah!
