Thread: Classical music

    So, I bought a few Glenn Gould albums from Discogs, so that's a lot of what I've been listening to the last three days. I listened Gould's Toccatas Vol. 2 and the English Suites albums. Those are all Bach, btw. And yesterday, finally, the three CD set of Gould's recordings of the Beethoven piano concerti (three of which were conducted by Leonard Bernstein), arrived. I listened to disc one last night before bed, listened to disc two just now, and I'll probably do disc three in just a few minutes.

    I need to check out that Swedish Xmas stuff. Bach Gould is Gold.

    Right now I'm spinning RVW Fantasia on Christmas Carols and Hodie (Xmas Cantata)...both are totally killer. Awesome shit.

    Messiaen's organ works, Mahler 4 and 6, and Hitoshi Matsumoto's orchestral OST for Final Fantasy XII have kept me company during this weird December.

    Considering re-exploring Erkki-Sven Tüür and Arvo Part's older works next month.

    I've been listening to this French composer lately. He died during WWI while defending his house from Germans. He wrote 4 symphonies and some other works still survive, but I've heard that many of his works perished in the fire in his house when he died. Sad.

    Thank you very much for your post. I have not heard of this composer before. You should never be sure that you already know everything and have heard a lot. You can always find something incredibly beautiful by chance!

    This is really some seriously scary shit. The MET still calls my cell constantly asking for donations. Seeing Die Walkure was one tje grestest musical experiences in my life. They have to survive this, its a must. I might donate again, I feel terrible.

    It's a drag! And I don't know how many of the world's orchestras and chamber groups are going to survive without massive support from donors? BTW, Julia Bruskin and her husband are the artistic directors of the Skaneateles Festival up here in the Finger Lakes region. I've seen her play several times and she is a badass!
