Weinberg String Quartets, over the last 2-3 days, Nos. 5-10 at various YT's, 5,8,9 particularly striking, 9 a real tour de force, but all worth hearings. Hope to get to the rest soon. Also his Cello Concerto ; wow,
Inspired by his string quartets, I explored some of his piano sonatas, all of which seem to be at YT. ##2,3 made the greatest impression on first hearing, can recommend the music ( also great pianism each case ) :

Carlos Kleiber conducting Borodin's Symphony No. 2 in B Minor - a work with which I'm totally unfamiliar. Just glad to hear anything at all with the name Kleiber attached to it!! :D

Concentus Musicus, Wien/Harnoncourt/Arnold Shoenberg Choir, "Alexander's Feast". Recorded at Melk Abbey in 2011: not the very best version I've heard (a bit soft around the edges), but enjoyable.

Absolutely magnificent; I didn't know of this work: those jarring dissonances and that translucent sound on period instruments!! Perfection. And just right for the contemplative mood today, Good Friday.
