Great live set of interesting compositions. Will have to explore some of the other

volumes in this series.

This one is good:

Though I didn't care much for the Tan Dun.

Apologies for size of Prokofiev - doesn't seem to exist in modest dimensions. Just Symph 7 - my favourite of Prokofiev's symphs.

Thnx for the hint reg my "mishit"  - as being forced to write via mobile phone currently  the so called "autocorrection" changed the context to concerto - without any reason .... but staying with the Piano Concerto - Aimard is here on top of his game too ...

Hard to see the last one - music by Sculthorpe, Sallinen, Glass, Nancarrow & Hendrix. Listened to this for the first time on Spotify yesterday - recall it being very successful when it came out. I've certainly heard 'Purple Haze' on the radio a fair few times over the years. Britain's Ligeti Quartet, who I've been so taken with live this year, seem to he heavily influenced by the repertoire approach of the Kronos Quartet (if not their Newyawk Hipster visual image [not complaining - certainly beats penguin suits]).

This is the 1953 recording.

I don't think I've heard this Berlioz work before.  Some very beautiful music here.  

I sought out a recording of this work because last month my daughter sang in a concert as a member of the choir of the Richmond Symphony Orchestra.  (I wasn't able to get down there to hear it, alas.)
