Young violinist Augustin Hadelich plays my fav VC, the Sibelius, at 2019 Salzburg Festival, with Orchestre symphonique de l'ORF under Kerem Hassan , also Shostakovich’s 10th Symphony ( I did not hear ) :

Hadelich’s 2014 Avie cd of the Sibelius with Lintu / Liverpool got largely rave reviews at Amazon-US. I have not heard the cd. To my ear, there is an austerity,urgency,darkness to the Heifetz/Beecham recording which despite dated sound remains my fav, but Hadelich very fine here.

Carl Tausig, "The Ghost Ship". I just found this on U-Tube and was bowled over by the virtuosity of the piece - in the style of Liszt, naturally enough:

The late Koho Uno in 1995 conducting the Shinsei Nihhon Symphony Orchestra: LvB Sym 2 and 6. Top-notch interpretations by a celebrated Japanese music critic turned conductor in the vein of Mengelberg, Knappertsbusch and Furtwangler. I had never heard of him in either role.

Here's his Schubert 9 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXgkiI0VfMs

Interesting, dark, percussive work , virtuosic for both piano and orchestra , but probably a one-hear for me.

Dunno. IIRC, (having listened to the audio w/o watching), it unfolded in one long sequence. It has been posted on symphonyshare if you have access to that forum.

My daughter and I heard Goode live in Severance Hall around that time in an all-Beethoven recital. Introspective playing, as in this recital, cf. the soul-stirring Bach in this Paris recital!
