    Re: Classical Music Only | What You're Listening to Now, Or Very Recently | Any Mediums :

    Mendelssohn - Violin Concerto - Symphony no. 5 - The Hebrides
    Freiburger Barockorchester, Pablo Heras-Casado
    Isabelle Faust, violin
    Qobuz 24/96




    We're just back from Bruges where we saw Collegium Vocale, directed by Philippe Herreweghe. This ensemble celebrates its 50th birthday!
    A programme with motets from Mendelssohn.
    This in the Bach weekend, the 10th organised in Brugge.
    Because Mendelssohn was instrumental (pun intended) in reviving Bach, and also because he composed religious music inspired by the great master, this cooncert fitted perfectly in a Bach weekend.
    These motets are wonderful pieces, seldom played and recorded.
    Herreweghe admitted they were new for him too.
    I'm going to examine these on Qobuz, but a quick first search was fruitless.

    So I played this wonderful album, also with a baroque orchestra that plays Mendelssohn.
    You can hear this, and it is a nice flavour.

    It's not entirely my thing either, but... it attracts young people.
    We experienced this during a concert of his, a couple of years ago.
    A lot of youngsters cheering as if he were Justin Bieber!

    My youngest daughter loves him (we took her with us).
    She plays the piano, and his pieces are easier to play than Bach or Satie.
    She started to play and listen to Einaudi and now listens to Satie, Chopin and Ravel.

    Re: Classical Music Only | What You're Listening to Now, Or Very Recently | Any Mediums :

    Shostakovich
    Rachmaninoff
    - Sonatas for cello and piano
    Alexander Warenberg
    Guiseppe Guarrera

    trptk
    Qobuz 24/96




    Very beautiful sonatas.
    If you're in a rather mellow mood, don't be afraid, this is very 'sweet' music!
    Wonderfully recorded, as always with trptk.
