Mdt has a sale on albums from the Mode label, and I'm curious about a couple of them:

Should I order Feldman's second string quartet? It's so tempting, but mostly for the sake of curiosity. Has anyone here actually heard the whole thing, all 5 cds of it? Is it even listenable, or do you just zone out after ten minutes?

Also, what is Roger Reynolds all about? I'm looking at a cd with two symphonies and a pulitzer-winning work called "Whispers out of Time".

Wow Rasmus! You are going to be busy...with much listening and reading to do. You don't need me to say it but I will anyways...ENJOY!

Posted on Jun 15, 2012 9:15:06 AM PDT
Rasmus, good call on the superlative Bach-Fellner WTC. The other one (inventions etc) is darn good too.

David and Zadok

Thank you both - I will look forward to getting those next week and maybe post about them on the listening thread if I have the time.

Big order! Let us know how you like Tortelier in the cello suites. Which other recordings do you have? I am fond of Fournier.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 15, 2012 11:06:27 AM PDT

I will try and report about the Tortelier on the listening thread.
I have about 15-20 recordings of the cello suites.
The one I'm most fund of for the moment is Gavriel Lipkind's: Bach: Six Suites for Cello Solo
Here is what I wrote about it on another thread:
>>His approach is very special or wayward if you prefer that word.
He takes the slow movements very slowly and he makes the music sound as if it was composed for an orchestra.
I wouldn't want to recommend it to anyone as their only or first rendition, but for those who already know the work it is very interesting.
It's the only recording I know of that takes up 3 cds.
The Allemande from the 6th suite takes more than 12 minutes vs. Queyras' ca. 7 minutes!<<

I know that Piso shares my enthusiasm for the Lipkind Bach - and Mandryka kinda liked it too - I have a feeling that Mandryka might be a little hard to please ;-)

Another recording I love is the SIGISWALD KUIJKEN on a shoulder-cello - radically different from the Lipkind with its authentic apporoach on what Kuijken believes is the instrument originally intended for the suites.
Bach: Cello Suites

Mandryka prefers Kuijken's pupil Badiarov, but I didn't like it that much - that might change - it took a while for me getting used to Kuijken.
Cello Suites

Truls Mørk on Virgin is another recording that has really grown on me - it didn't get very good reviews when it came out, but I think it's terrific.

That's what comes to mind right now.
I hope you don't order any of these, since it will ruin your ambition of only ordering music you don't own - I have the same goal - but as you can see it's not working for me.

You'll probably like the Neil Young album the best !!

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 15, 2012 12:14:49 PM PDT

yes, I already listened to it on Spotify - great stuff!
He is interpreting American classics like "This Land is Your Land", "Gallows Pole" and "Oh, Suzannah".

What, no Alabama?
Maybe next: a tour with the remains of Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Recently ordered and received:

Michael Haydn: 20 Symphonies

These symphonies sound like FJ Haydn with more focus on horn parts.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 15, 2012 3:38:55 PM PDT

You sorely test my resolve to not buy anything I already have - not that I've been tremendously successful in resisting temptation so far. I've always wondered where to go after Fournier. I've sampled some of the favorites but haven't been suitably impressed. I like Kuijken's work in all endeavors, so the disc you mention is tempting.

Piso Mojado says:
Emmerich Kalman's "The Circus Princess", German operetta, which is currently playing live ion Chicago at the Chopin theater with Kalman's daughter in attendance. It had not been performed anywhere in the U.S. for 85 years, having premiered in 1926 and been performed in 1927. I've ordered a German recording in that language. The Chicago run is in English, alternating with Kunneke's "The Cousin from Nowhere".

Rasmus forgive me, for I have sinned. I bought:

Bach: Six Suites for Cello Solo
Bach: Mass in B Minor
Weinberg: Complete Music for Solo Cello, Vol. 1
Complete Music for Solo Cello 2
Weinberg: String Quartets, Vol. 1 - Nos. 4 And 16
Weinberg, M.: String Quartets, Vol. 2 - Nos. 7, 11, 13 (Quatour Danel)

The Lipkind is available on NML. I cannot believe how amazing that sounds!

You are going to love thr Butt Messiah on Linn!
Happy listening...let everyone know what you think after listening. I bought it when it first came out a few years ago.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 16, 2012 2:01:10 AM PDT

you have my blessing.

For more inspiration regarding Bach's cello suites this thread on the forum might be of interest:

the Butt Messiah was an impulse purchase (the price was low). I only have one recording to compare it with, but I will do my best to post about it on the listening thread.

Posted on Jun 16, 2012 8:44:07 AM PDT
The Butt Messiah (can`t help but smile when i write that) is excellent. It's a reconstruction of the first performance of Messiah, so parts of it will surprise you if you know the piece well. The Marriner on Decca is another excellent early version, and one of the few Baroque recordings by the ASMIF that I like.

I have a Butt set of rimsky korsakov symphonies.
Symphonies 1 & 2 as part of the giant brilliant symphony box.

does the fact that it is a different Butt make it even funnier? of course two discs doesn't have to create a
but the term 'butt set' is just an 'X' away from comedy gold.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 16, 2012 9:11:10 AM PDT
-- I'm glad to hear that that recording kicks Butt.

Posted on Jun 16, 2012 9:35:19 AM PDT
If you have Amazon on speed dial, you could accidently "Butt dial" and "Butt order" the Butt Messiah. But..., I suppose that would be a miracle.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 16, 2012 9:43:42 AM PDT
I fear the implications of a Butt Messiah. What would that make the 8th gate of Jerusalem?
