Some Iranian classical music, free and improvisatory in a culture we often view as the opposite, may have influenced Scarlatti, a pity that while the World has gotten smaller in many respects , we have gotten more distant in many other respects:

Thanks, Sean. Those are excellent (I've heard them on Spotify), and I've been holding off for a box. I'm sincerely interested in Haydn, and we play through the excellent box of complete symphonies by Adam Fischer on a regular basis.

I wouldn't leave it too long Brian as they may not be available for long. It's a great cycle. The Fischer cycle is excellent.

Been listening last several days to the Bartok String Quartets, Emerson Quartet's 80's cd set on DGG.

I find that repeated hearings over several days help make these less complex, more attractive; on first hearings years ago they were nigh impenetrable for me.

I have that set, and agree with your listening preference. They certainly have grown on me over the years.

Copland's The Cat and the MOUSE:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Okar6gdxlGI

Here's a piano roll of Copland himself doing it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcsMhuREKbw

You know, as a highschooler, a friend of mine in Longmont whom I got to see only once a year, worked up this piece for the IMMT piano auditions. We both had the same teacher, who drove me & her other students up there to do the pieces we studied (varying levels). Everyone was floored by this piece, which follows a very simple story--cat chases mouse, mouse escapes, cat chases mouse, so forth and so on, until the feline kills the rodent, and eats him! I was determined to do this piece, but instead our teacher recommended me a piece that seems to follow a similar story, Debussy's Feux d'artifice. It sort of reveals what would've come about if Debussy had written Cat and Mouse. I slaved over it for the following year, and when we went up there that year and I played it, my friend was knocked out. He agreed that it had basically the same plotline and wanted to work it up, too.

I really had no business playing this piece--didn't have the equipment for it--and I later coerced my teacher into letting me do Ravel's Alborada del gracioso, a piece I had even less business tackling. Ah, the follies of youth!

Here's Casadesus doing Feux d'artifice:

Great story Neil, thanks. Whatever your limitations, I admire your willingness to tackle such repertoire.

I discovered at a very early age that I did not have the chops to become a working pianist when I taught myself the Schubert/Liszt "Serenade" and Mendelssohn's "Spinning Song." My mother had taught me music theory and how to read music (She could play Chopin quite brilliantly.), so I had ambitions myself. I won first prize in a school competition playing those two works, but in the process discovered that I simply did not have the quickness in my fingers to tackle more demanding repertoire, so decided at age 10/11 to sing and conduct and leave the dexterity problems to those who could manage them.

From 2022 Aldeburgh Festival, Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No.2, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, City of Birmingham Orchestra, Ludovic Morlot.

In the World today, “ I feel I am sitting on a volcano that could go off any second, and that’s how I play this concerto” , says Kopatchinskaja.

Audibly barefoot, as she says she needs a stable platform to really play well.

Of course I have his London/Decca CD of these, so I must check this out. Thanks!

Streamed it earlier today. Fabulous playing for a 22-year-old. The vinyl noise didn’t interfere with my enjoyment.

Quite agree. Just finished hearing, and I noticed some interesting differences from his Decca LP, most notably in the intriguing and very effective shaping of the "Aolian Harp" etude. Very well done. Thanks, Joe. A fascinating website that I have now bookmarked to revisit.

My annual hearing of Solti's Ring. Easy enough to stream all of it from LP.
Two distinct LP issues to choose from.
Full scans of the original LP booklets available for each one.
Minimum of surface noise. Actually, I hear none most of the time.

This was three years before his stroke; and I've looked askance at any conducted recording by him made after that.

Thanks, Neil. I've not heard this and will definitely check it out soon. Today is opera day, but tomorrow looks promising. :)

As for Stravinsky's later recordings, I admire them, of course, knowing that Robert Craft had much to do with the preparation. Certainly they were released with Stravinsky's OK, and he did conduct them in the studio.

Or you can just follow the link and stream it @190kbps.

I downloaded the 24/96 flacs, downsampled them to normal 16/44 wav format and burned them to cdr. I am a Francescatti fan but didn’t have this recording.

If I had the LP, I'd do the same. I still prefer vinyl and have kept most of my good sounding classical stuff and all operas for their librettos. Gave away or threw away the rest.

On Juneteenth I was the subject of a family intervention and ended up with an iPhone SE 3. Believe it or not, I taught 3 different digital graphics courses for over a decade. Only bought two computers ever — one for my wife and the other I gave away to my son. I still use school computers.

Actually, you're not far behind me. I finally caved in to the 21st century about a year ago and bought an android 5G phone, but I still won't do banking on it like the younger crowd. It just doesn't feel safe, and I have no idea how to install a VPN anyway.

In time, perhaps...

Cyprien Katsaris plays Beethoven/Liszt Sym.No.9 :

Katsaris adds some of own ideas to the Liszt. I have Sherbakov’s Naxos recording of the original, but Katsaris’ is quite an “ improvement." 65 minutes, audio only.

Glenn Gould playing the 3 piano sonatas of Paul Hindemith, 1992 Sony cd. Wonderful music wonderfully played, a mystery to me why not more popular.One of Gould’s best IMHO.
Again today; better each time. A different recording of all 3:

Handel was a genius. This opera is stunning.
