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.

Actually, and very curiously, the instrumentation sounds more like the period of Monteverdi while the choral sound is definitely early 18th century at times. The Keiser (1674-1739) (attrib.) Markus Passion reveals the influence of Monteverdi, Schutz and Biber. The recitative is certainly more 17th century than 18th. The positive organ and lute/chittarone accompaniment was standard practice before Bach, but this BC is filled out rather more in that it has some interesting ostinati and in this sense it's of a later time. The Lutheran chorales sound like Bach but at least one is accompanied by a violin which is more reminiscent of the Italians and Vivaldi. The movement, in a very pronounced way, from tonic to dominant is very Bachian.

It's musicologically a very interesting, somewhat hybrid, piece and absolutely gorgeous to hear. Ergo, I would question the date of 1705.

This is a truly great performance and we're very lucky to have it. Act 2 reached a special height, as Hugo Burghauser of the Vienna Philharmonic and Toscanini himself acknowledged at the time and afterward.

London premiere ( World premiere was a week earlier at Salford ) of Gerald Barry’s brief Viola Concerto ( 2018-2019 ), Lawrence Power, Thomas Ades, Britten Sinfonia, live at the Barbican, my first hearing of the Irish composer’s ( 1952 - ) music, not auspicious for me :

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00057k2

About his new concerto, Barry says :
"I partly discovered music through exercises. I did not distinguish between these exercises and art. They were the same to me as Mozart or Schubert. Exercises have always been pure things for me, clean, unaffected by dreaded profundity. They are liberating and free, and I always feel good psychologically and physically after playing them. This Viola Concerto is, I suppose, a homage to their ecstasy."
