  1. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Rogue Art has sale (€10 instead of regular price of €15) on a few of their CDs this weekend: https://roguart.com/
  2. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    I agree - Richter / Schubert is an interesting combination. Schumann, I think, is just a natural fit for Richter. I am not the biggest Richter fan - find him too harsh and loud. I thought it was funny that in a documentary on him he repeatedly stresses the importance of being able to play pianissimo - and then it is repeatedly illustrated by the concert footage of him banging the piano. I am also not too interested in his core repertoire (well, I am interested in Bach, but his performances of WTK are just awful IMHO) - but I would very much recommend his Debussy (whom Richter mentioned as one of his favorite composers) and Ravel recordings.

    Thanks to mikeweil for recommendation. This is great stuff.
  4. Discogs Collection option

    I remember CATRAXX, I tried it way back when, but I liked Collectorz more and settled on it.
  5. Discogs Collection option

    Yes - if you input the data on individual musicians, of course.
  6. Discogs Collection option

    It does. It's a good solution, I've been using it for 15 years now. I don't like the web version (Music Connect) that much, but the desktop one is good. Allows you for a decent degree of customization (e.g. I made custom tick boxes like "OOP" and I can sort my collection to show only the OOP items... or only the ones bought directly from the artists... or only the ones bought in 2019). Their development team is responsive too - I sent them a few suggestions over the years, and most of them were eventually implemented.
  7. Discogs Collection option

    Whenever I am on Discogs I mark a few my CDs as "in Collection", and by now have a sizable part of my collection input. I have not really played with the settings, but it is not bad. The items are sorted by First Name, rather than Last name, which is not how I would prefer it, and customization options are limited, so I would not use it as a primary database (for this I use Collectorz: https://www.collectorz.com/music ), but it is OK for what it is, and I guess Discogs will develop it further.
  8. John Butcher

    John Butcher just posted a few albums / tracks on his Bandcamp page. Some new stuff, as well as the long OOP duo with Dylan van der Schyff on Meniscus. https://johnbutcher1.bandcamp.com/

    Listened to this one on Spotify. Beautiful indeed!
  10. Raphe Malik

    I am not a fan, but Malik's album with Joe McPhee and Donald Robinson on Boxholder is really excellent: https://www.discogs.com/Malik-McPhee-Robinson-Sympathy/release/3218423
  11. Well, here are ten I've listen to most in the last year. I guess do I enjoy them. I have to be considerate of what my family can tolerate, so more ugly / noisy stuff (that I enjoy just as much) is played less frequently. J.S. Bach - Cello Suites - Ophelie Gaillard (Aparte) J.S. Bach - Cafe Zimmermann - Concerts avec plusieurs instruments (6-CD box) (Alpha) J.S. Bach - Six Suites (Piano) - Irma Issakadze (Oehms) Johann Molter - Trumpet and Clarinet Concertos (Coviello Classics) - unexpectedly good baroque composer C.P.E. Bach - Piano Works - Ana-Marija Markovina (26-CD box) (Hänssler) C.P.E. Bach - Concertos & Symphonies (two volumes) - Berliner Barock Solisten (Deutsche Harmonia Mundi) Sylvius Leopold Weiss - The Famous Weiss. Solo Lute Works - David Miller (Timespan Recordings) - mikeweil will say these are no good, and he is probably right, but what can I do, I still love them Morton Feldman - For Bunita Marcus (piano) - Ivan Ilic (Paraty) Georg Friedrich Haas - In Vain - Klangforum Wien (KAIROS) Pascal Dusapin - Quartets 6 & 7 - Arditti Quartet (aeon)
  12. Alexander Hawkins - Iron Into Wind

    I look forward to listening to it once it's available on Spotify.
