[#12] What are you listening to? ( classical musi    
Last night, I revisit Bruckner Symphony No. 8. These soul shaking music once again left me speechless, they are like the great cathedral of europe, I cannot stop amzing at its greatness.

I found these music especially suitable for Vienna Philharmonic, the long and grand slow movement that never end is a excellent vehicle to show off their famous gorgous strings. No wonder Karajan choose to recording with Vienna instead of his own Berlin Philharmonic.

However, these music are repectable but not lovely, my wife protest to me that it is too noisy, may be these music is really too difficult for her, hope that one day she will me mature enough to appreciate its greatness. Eventually, I change to Schubert string Quintet in C.

Schubert's string Quintet is a perfect encore after the music of Bruckner, and also a perfect music before sleep. The second movement of string Quintet in C is justly famous for its beauty and transquility, Rubinstein specially request this piece of music to be his funeral music, and most important of all, my pregnant wife and the baby inside would not protest again.

Hollywood string quartet's recording was in excellent mono, but their playing quickly let you forget the shortcoming in engineering.

冇晚期vpo個隻咁凝重深刻,朱里尼早期d呢個version著重音樂的流動性,聲部平衡木管非常美麗,慢板結尾樂章好純淨聖潔。

ocean:

Zimerman was my favorite pianist. In Debussy, his approach was totally different from those from older generation. While Gieseking's Debussy was dreamy, atmospheric and hammerless, Zimerman's playing was more modern, clean and dynamic. But despite the difference, both were regarded as the greatest Debussy player of their time.

The greatest Mahler bargain ever (~200 for full set, chepest place is Central Pro Sound), not one loser among them. Recording is German Radio, garanteed excellence.

Light and cheerful music, really cheer me up after the boring morning session.

zimerman is my favourite too. i remember his concert showed that everything was prepared in the most thoughtful manner, yet the playing was full of surprises and the music utterly convincing. i'm not sure if you agree, but i think he has become bolder in his phrasing since the debussy recordings.

the other artiste i can think of with a similar approach is perahia, but there were more similarities between zimerman and perahia in the past than they are now.

as to the bruckner recordings, why wouldn't anybody mention Celibidache's?

Perahia and Zimerman are two piano giant of our generation, but they cannot be more different.

Perahia play in a natural, spontaeous fashion, his tempo will neither be too fast or too slow, he let the music speak for itself, he let music flow, as a result his best moment are in baroque, classical or early romantic piano works like Bach, Scaletti, Mozart or Beethoven.

Zimerman play in romatic style, his tempo are usually slow but his tempo change deliberately, his playing is inspired, thoughful most of the time yet he may be exciting when music call for it. He excel in romantic to late romantic piano works like Chopin, Ravel, Debussy.

Perahia can be regarded as Rubinstein of our generation while Zimerman can be reagrded as Richter of our generation.

It is great to share my thoughts with people who listen to music here! Yes, Perahia, Zimerman and Richter are all wonderful musicians and I enjoy their recordings tremendously.

Perahia has this exceptional ability that makes all music he plays sound so natural. He plays with very strict discipline and structure, and build the tension and claimx as it should be. Yes, all of his recent Bach recordings are my favourites, but his earlier recordings of Brahms, Schumann, Liszt and Frank are also wonderful.

I have more reflection on Zimerman, as he came to HK just recently (were you there?). His playing has become a lot more scrupted comparing to about 10 yrs ago. His tempo is not fast, but they do not sound slow at all. He allows room for the music to unfold. I've never heard him play Bach, Scaletti, but his Beethoven and Schubert are as convincing as his Ravel and Debussy. Just when I thought he was already a very complete musician, he just moved on to the next level. Full of suprirses.

Richter is another giant figure. His phrasing is always direct and straightforward, sometimes provoking, but his sound - what a big, solid and penetrating sound. I suspect he has been like that throughout his career (from his 1930s' Pictures to his late recordings).

Rubenstein, I just wish I could listen to more of Rubenstein. It would be great if you can enlighten me.

My listening seeion last night start with something modern:

POULENC: Organ Concerto / Concert Champetre
Composer(s):
Poulenc, Francis
Conductor(s):
Casadesus, Jean-Claude
Orchestra(s):
Lille National Orchestra
Artist(s):
Chojnacka, Elisabeth; Lefebvre, Philippe
Label: Naxos

Poulenc's music is light, resembling famous organ concerto by Handel in its conception but modern in its blood. Although I found modern music very difficult to accept, this one is definitely an exception, moreover, no complaint received so far either from my wife or from neighbour in my late night listening session ( after midnight).

As an encore, I run through half disc of Horowitz in Moscow. I think everyone would be quite familiar with this disc.

I listened to Schumann too (after Mahler) - Richter's recording of the Schumann Fantasie on EMI.
