Re:

I decided to take my current exploration of early music as far back as I plan on going, right to Hildegard von Bingen. Medieval music is quite old enough for me, almost assuredly, as I have no real interest in listening to how people think the Romans may have listened to music. I

Re:

This has to be my favorite post on here. I am a great lover of all the standard classics and still listen to them often. But I am always looking for new listening experiences and this post has been a great source of new listening experiences to try.I have made several new purchases of new composers music based on recommendations on here. Please keep them coming, if I have anything I think is of value I will post it. Thanks.

Having enjoyed all of the recordings of music by Ahmed Adnan Saygun, I figured I could go for another one, and I settled on a CPO disc devoted to his Third and Fifth Symphonies. It

Re:

Continuining on with more Renaissance music, I decided to move north a bit and try some Orlande de Lassus. (Though not the recording recommended earlier in this thread.) Philippe Herreweghe has recorded enough music by Lassus to seem a safe bet, and so I grabbed his latest offering, the Cationes Sacrae for six voices. The recording is both spectacular and a bit disappointing. Let me

Re: “New” Music Log

This CD may not be fancied by many, but I sure love it. The harp is IMO a beautiful instrument, especially when played by a virtuoso like Nora Koch.

Clair de Lune is one of my favourites, and - again IMO - it's at least as good as the classic piano versions.

On this CD there's pieces by Faure, Tournier, Salzedo, Marescotti, Tchaikovsky, Spohr, Grandjany and de Falla as well.

Re:

Where have you been all my life? I pondered this question, not exactly seriously, while listening to another disc of music by Roussel conducted by Mr Eschenbach. This disc, with the large-scale, serious symphony, and two suites from Bacchus et Ariane, made for a perfect follow-up to the prior disc of Roussel

I haven't heard Tryptyque. It would be worth the price of the disk just to hear it.
