Actually, I find I erred; per Wiki Rachmaninoff revised the work substantially in 1917. Not sure I’ve heard the pre- Dahl.

My recording with CSO as well , if London Decca.

Fww, Kurt Masur programmed the work for his NYPO debut as Music Director. Apparently, the NYC critics were not happy as I recall.Was televised I saw. First half was a John Adams brief work and Copland's "American Songs" with Thomas Hampson.

A unique, sonorous,very somber, dark, at times almost bellicose reading of the Ravel I suspect influenced by the moment.Impressive. Before his compelling encore by Ukrainian composer Sergei Bortkiewicz , Giltburg addressed the audience , in French , about the War. I heard the entire programme except for the Rachmaninoff. Macelaru addressed the audience before the Silvestrov.

En direct du Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles,Brussels, March 11,2022:

Valentin Silvestrov: Hymn for Ukraine

Leoš Janácek - Taras Bulba

Maurice Ravel - Concerto en Ré Majeur pour piano et orchestre, "pour la main gauche"

Sergueï Rachmaninov - Danses symphoniques, op. 45

Boris Giltburg , piano
Karol Mossakowski, orgue
Orchestre National de France
Cristian Macelaru

Good lineup, Neil. I've never heard of a commercial recording of Nevsky with Leinsdorf, though. Was that a concert performance, or are you thinking of the Reiner recording on RCA?

Actually, you could wager any sum of money it's the Reiner. It's out of my Time/Life Great Men of Music set....drawn from RCA's back catalogue.

I'll check when I get home.

Came across this recently. Wonderful Scriabin playing by a pianist unknown to me.I dont think the Op.22 Preludes are played live often, or even recorded often, jewels, of which I try to play No.1. Op.8,Nos. 3 and 10 are real feats, No.11 another jewel. Eteri Andjaparidze, pianist, live in Moscow,1992 , 30-minute video in fairly good quality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M97cvwBp4HE


4 Preludes, op. 22
Etudes op. 8 nos.1,2,3,4,8.10,11,12
Feuillet d'Album, op. 45 no. 1
Feuillet d'Album in F-sharp major (1905) ( Briefest work in the solo piano repertoire ? )

Philip Glass ‘ “Double Piano Concerto” for Two Pianos and Orchestra (2015) , the Labeque sisters with Rotterdam Phil. directed by composer John Adams, live in Utrecht,October,2021. My first hearing. Wonderful work, I shall look for a cd recording, but apparently no cd yet , even none by the sisters for whom it was written. The first and third movs. were very interesting, the second a bit long for its material. On balance, a very lyrical yet somber work, even though it opens exuberantly.

Buketoff, a vastly underrepresented figure on CDs. He's quite famous in Philadelphia as a choral conductor. He recomposed his own version of Mussorgsky's "Boris Godunov" that was produced at the MET some decades ago, and led the premier recording of Rachmaninoff's opera, "Monna Vanna" starring Sherrill Milnes on Chandos:

IIRC Beethovens rarely played own shorter cadenza for this movement. I agree that the recording with Leopold Ludwig surpasses the recording with Szell, but in a way I like the somewhat departure mood of the latter. Gilels also recorded this concerto with Masur and Sanderling.

Pappano goes from one success to another, no matter whether it's opera or orchestral. I love Georgian violinist Lisa Batiashvili and will definitely get to this. Thanks!

Two live BSO tapes I've resurrected from the dead:

Ravel's Bolero, led by Ansermet
Debussy's La mer, led by Martinon
Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphoses,led by Szell
Good music is that which falls upon the ear with ease and quits the memory with difficulty.

Many fine treasures in those broadcast concerts.

One box I'm particularly proud to own:

I recently bought this set from jpc.de and it is excellent:

Joseph Haydn
Symphony No. 39 in G Minor, Hob. I:39 "Tempesta di mare"
Gluck: Don Juan
Joseph Haydn Symphony No. 49 in F minor 'La Passione'
Joseph Haydn Symphony No. 1 in D major

Il Giardino Armonico
Giovanni Antonini conducting


Giovanni Antonini is planning on recording all of Haydn's symphonies, the project will finish in time for Haydn's centenary in 2032. The first 10 CDs in the cycle are now available at a great price. Highly recommended if you love Joseph Haydn's magnificent music.
