[#52] What are you listening to? ( classical mus    
I don't know much about Bartok, but I like his Bluebeard's Castle - got the recent recording by Ivan Fisher on Philips. Shall explore more.

I am more into the Russians - Prokofiev, Shostakovich, and Schnittke. Schnittke, in particular, is a gem. His music is real fun. He incorporated so many different styles and melodies. The Concerto Grosso no.1 by Gidon Kremer is my all time favourite - he performed it some years ago at the City Hall. Anyone remember that?

Sibelius is another one I like (esp symphonies no. 4, 5 and 7), but don't know very much.

Good morning to all,

Last night was windy, as a result, my focus last night was on wind music. These light and tuneful music was refreshing after two consecutive night of Bruckner.

I started off with Haydn's wind concerto:

Haydn: Trumpet Concerto, Horn Concerto No.1, Oboe Concerto in C Major


I found haydn to be under-rated, his music were as good as, if not better than Mozart, most importantly he infuse a sense on humor into his music. Trumpet concerto was known to many after being chosen as the title music of BBC, the other wind concerto are equally enjoyable.

The second disc was by Mozart, and was lovely in its own right.

WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART (1756-1791)
Wind and String Chamber Music
THE GAUDIER ENSEMBLE

MARIEKE BLANKESTIJN violin
IRIS JUDA viola, JANE ATKINS viola (K407)
Christoph Marks cello, DOUGLAS BOYD oboe
RICHARD HOSFORD bassett horn (K580b), clarinet (K452)
NICHOLAS RODWELL clarinet (K580b)
ROBIN O'NEILL bassoon, JONATHAN WILLIAMS horn
SUSAN TOMES piano

Oboe Quartet in F major K370 [17'05]
Horn Quintet in E flat major K407 [18'28]
Quintet Movement in F major K580b [12'42]
Quintet for Piano and Wind in E flat major K452 [24'53]

Mozart was always interesting, ever entertaining, and I found his wind music to be fantastic. Mozart's wind concerto was my all time favorite and a perfect candidate for indroducing classical music to beginner.

chankaiming and minpin,

It is joyful to read you2's post because I find our similar taste to music. Meanwhile, I have taken the same view as you toward Perahia and Zimerman, two great pianist of our generation.

Zimerman's Debussy is his only record of my collection but it has already told me a lot of his style, approach, etc. However, I am not very interested in his concerto plays...

Perahia is truely my beloved musician. A well educated and gentle person who was a friend and fan of Horowitz.

Years ago I attended his concert in HK who played Bach English Suite 3, Beethoven Piano Sonata Moonlight and Chopin's. Three different kinds of musical works that he managed very well.

Sitting at the quite front left row, I got a pretty clear observation on his fingering and posture. He did not have much body movement or facial expression (closing eyes sometimes) even during the aggressive portion and this reminded me Horowitz who did not have much body movement either.

The Suite 3 and Moonlight was very attractive and well balance. I thought he would further explore Beethoven's work in coming his recording. But it turned up that he released several Bach's recordings within a short period and of course very successful.

Personally, I don't like strong body movement or facial expression in live playing because it is very distorbing to me. But to some new generation pianist, especially Chinese, it becomes a must as if it helps the interpretation!?

Haydn's trumpet concerto is a masterpiece!

My favorite trumpeter is Maurice Andre.

Yes, London Symphony Winds.

The Gran Partita is a masterpiece but really difficult to play well!

Perahia was versatile and he excel in many different field, but if I forced to choose one, I would choose his ` Songs without words'

In this disc, he play transcriptions by Bach, Liszt transtription of Schubert's songs (Liszt transcription make Schubert songs sing on piano) and Mendelsohnn's songs without words. I choose this as background music of my wedding party.

Last night was an night of discovery, I listen to a new piano concerto which I found interesting:

Hummel: Piano Concerto in C major, Op.34
Composer: Johann Nepomuk Hummel
Conductor: Howard Shelley
Performer: Howard Shelley
Orchestra: London Mozart Players
Audio CD (July 27, 2004)
SPARS Code: DDD
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Chandos
ASIN: B0002AAP9Y

Hummel was a contemporary of Beethoven and Schubert, after listening to his music, I am not surprised that he is more famous than Beethoven in his time but less so after he pass away. His music is tuneful and brilliant, and most important very good vehicle for pianist to show off their extraordinary piano technique. However his music lack the depth exhibited by Beethoven but I will qualified him as a composer better than Liszt, at least his music was more tuneful than Liszt.

Recording is very trueful, again no objection received from my tasteful wife or my troublesome neighour.

I follow up with Trio by Chopin and Tchaikovsky, I found Chopin really lost his magic when he go out of his comfort zone, that was his piano. Chopin's piano trio is boring, but Tchaikovsky's Piano trio is as tuneful and lovely as any of his piece. I must take time to listen more from Tchaikovsky.

Morning!

Chopin's cello sonata is supposedly a masterpiece, but I find it difficult too.

Listening to the cheap 5 CD French EMI Zacharias set. Light touch, straightforward, good D664.

Haskil introduce me into the world of Mozart, Her playing have a sense of vulnerability making her a perfect player of Mozart.

I found her Beethoven too soft, Beethoven should be played in a rage manner, I found Kovacevich more convinicing in this piece of music. In fact, Kovacevich's Beethoven piano concerto No3&4 is acutally the first classical music CD that introduce me to classical music. First love is always the best.
