Just finishing listening to all the late Beethoven works (and Villa-Lobos guitar concerto Bream/Previn).  After a couple more hearings of Missa Solemnis (John Eliot Gardiner), I will move on to my second “in car” listening of Scott Ross complete Scarlatti Keyboard Sonatas in Kk order from  Kk 1 to Kk 555.  2-3 listens per CD then put in the next.  This works great in the car.  Harpsichord cuts through wind and road noise well and there are no dynamics so I don’t need to keep adjusting the volume.  This might seem a little obsessive compulsive, but maybe this is also true of Scarlatti for writing them and Ross for recording them.

Considerably preferable to Wangs and Bangs. Very fine performance and i enjoyed watching her play as well as listening.

Top marks.

The 3 Korngold (1897-1957) string quartets performed by Doric string quartet on Chandos label.  Doric came to town a couple weeks ago in Pennsylvania and performed Korngold’s 2nd quartet along with a Haydn quartet and Beethoven Op. 132.  I never heard any works by this Viennese composer before.  He writes in the late romantic style.  These quartets are great!  The Doric string quartet is from UK I think.  The cello player (all are young in age) spoke with a great British accent and was so nice I bought this CD on sale at the concert for $20 instead of buying a used copy on the internet.  The second Mvt of the 2nd quartet (written 1933) sounded just like music I heard in a Charlie Chaplin movie (so I thought).  I listened to the sound tracks of about 4 Chaplin films to see if Korngold stole this from Chaplin.  Just my crazy imagination at work.  Who knows?

This will be my last post for a while.  I will be back for a short visit this summer.  Happy practicing!

George

I think that piece/performance has it, or lacks it rather.

There's something when the performer is being too careful or is something like "too controlling," listening too intently, not letting the music flow out.  Something that should just be tossed off freely isn't.  You can tell the performer is listening all around the notes, but by doing that, they don't release it or just let the music play itself.
