    One thing that irks me about the Sony box is that I already owned the Boulez complete Webern 3CD box, but can’t get rid of it because the big box includes only 2/3 of the contents, omitting the solo piano works and songs that do not require a conductor. Yet they still saw fit to reproduce the full original track listing on the mini-LP sleeve.

    Just received the DG box last night; digging into disc one right now.

    Those of you with the Boulez DG set...your assignment is Daphnis et Chloe with the Berliner Philharmonic. Absolutely incredible recording! La Valse is great too...completely manic. But that Daphnis is to die for...this is where PB excels - extreme clarity and insightful without any bloat or ego.

    For my grad school recital, I did a medley I put together of Oh No and Dvorak's Humoresque on marimba. I called it, "Does Humoresque Belong in Music?".

    OK, bye.

    I haven't heard the Dvorak piece. I'll have to give it a listen and try to imagine a medley.

    I'll get to that eventually. I listened to one of the Debussy discs from that set, the one with La Mer and Nocturnes on it (and the Hokusai artwork, which I believe is said to have been Debussy's inspiration for writing La Mer). I have a Ravel CD conducted by Bernstein, that has Daphnis & Chloe on it, and I remember listening to it the first time, and I thought, "That sounds like some of the music from Flipper". I don't think it's the actual literal same piece of music (I believe Ravel's work would have been still under copyright during the 60's), but I noted on IMDB someone else apparently made the same connection. I'm assuming whoever was composing music for Flipper must have been inspired by the Ravel piece, I think.

    The true story is that Ravel traveled to the future (where most of us will spend the rest of our lives) and was so blown away by Flipper, music and all, that he went back and did Daphnis et Chloe.

    You'll recognize the Dvorak as soon as you hear it. The medley might still not make any sense, though.

    Alfred Schnittke is a name I've run across, but never really dug into his music at all until he was mentioned under this topic. Being half German and half Jewish and coming of age in the context of WW2 during the purge of the German Volga, I think is reflected in the intensity, polarity and pathos of his works. The polystylism technique exhibited in the concerto below being a case in point. Other works are more conventional and melodic but still have the intensity and pathos. Not easy listening, but it does seem to me that Schnittke may have broken some new ground.

    I like this piece and recently played it for a few people recently only to have them all get up and leave the room within five minutes. Par for the course. At least they didn't run like they did when I was playing Art Zoyd's Phase IV at high volume. I wish I could form a local Avant-Guarde Music Drinking Night at a local pub to commiserate and share with like-minded people. Oh well.

    A fascinating and adventurous composer! I collected quite a few recordings about a decade ago including the symphonies, piano, and cello concertos, concerto grosso 1 & 2, etc.

    Not easy listening, but hardly music to clear a room with. I would use Magma for that.

    LOL. I must tell you, that in my experience, Schnittke will end a party far faster than Magma, but perhaps you dwell in more sophisticated circles...

    I'm tempted to start a thread "Albums you love that are guaranteed to quickly end a party". I have some experience with that...

    I am currently jamming out to my boy Holmboe and his Four Symphonic Metamorphoses.

    I don't have that much experience. I know that once someone put Nektar A tab in the ocean on in some place were I had lunch with my colleges and they didn't know how quick to remove it. I bought that album after someone played it at a birthday party at my house. I remember Yessongs didn't work well on a party.

    I might consider Station a good party-stopper as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=So8zE_AgNqc
    I always describe it as ELO goes punk. Prog connection, Sebastian Oberg, who played with Fläsket Brinner was a member.

    Until/if I get a chance to listen/think about that last one (Speicher) musically more carefully,an old dialog mentioned to me facetiously at Orion decades ago comes to mind:

    - when are they going to stop tuning and start playing?
    - actually they're into their 3rd song

    :-)
