that sets is liszt only isn't it? does it contain the recordings that are in the 5 cd set?

I was at Northpoint the other day and bought more cds:

Geoffrey Tozer- Medtner Concerti
Mozart complete piano concerti on Phillips
Earl Wild- doo dah variations and gershwin concerto

at this stage i can say that i'm pretty much broke so i won't be buying more cds for a while.

Actually, no; Liszt isn't predominant in the Introuvables CD collection. In fact, I'm about to start another topic in this area to post the entire repertoire list...because it's mouth watering. Also, the CD should come in two or three more days...

I realised today that it's been "long enough" since I last bought something and happened into a store where, as I found out happily, I could take advantage of a "buy 3 get one free" sale. So, I got these four cool CD's:

Bartok: Sonata for unaccompanied violin; Two Rhapsodies for violin and piano; Rumanian Folk Dances for violin and piano; Contrasts for Violin, Piano, and Clarinet (Helios)

Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem, Otto Klemperer (EMI: Classics)

Paganini: Violin Concerto no. 1; Sarasate 'Carmen' Fantasy (supercool piece, I heard it on the way home); Introduction et Tarantelle; Zigeunerweisen, Itzhak Perlman and Lawrence Foster, conductor (EMI: Classics)

Brahms: Symphony no. 1; Gesang der Parzen op. 89, Claudio Abbado and the Berliner Philharmoniker (Deutsche Grammophon)

All are pieces that I haven't actually heard yet, with the exception of the first violin concerto of Paganini.

Hmm either we forgot about this one as well, or I missed another one of those memos....

Anyway, I just got the "Liszt vs. Thalberg" CD with Steven Mayer playing:

Liszt: Niobe Fantasy, Carl Maria von Weber's Konzerstuck in F minor trans., Benediction de Dieu dans la solitude

Thalberg: "Moses" Fantasy; Fantasy on God Save the Queen

It's an interesting idea for a CD and I really just bought it for the Niobe and Moses Fantasies (I mean, come on...), but I think it could be a lot better. The pianist is mediocore, and has a very stereotypical "American" sound (not to offend anyone here...), but I must say I just finished listening to his Moses Fantasy and I think he did an admirable job with that. The technique doesn't seem to bother him at all, but as is the case with a lot of pianists, he doesn't really capture the real spirit of the music. Although he has the sort of restrained refinement needed in Thalberg, he doesn't seem to "let loose" as much as he should for the Liszt; and the Benediction piece actually kind of irritates me, because it doesn't fit in at all with the other pieces, and takes up a huge amount of space on the CD. These people always want to show us that they "are artistic poets as well" blah blah blah...but, I mean, if you're going to do a CD about the competition between two excellent Romantic salon pianists (and it's a great idea, I'd like to do a recital like that some day, as some of you know), you have to get into the MOOD of flat-out no holds barred competition. It's great that you can play slow stuff as well, but for such a setting, there is a certain degree of showiness and flamboyancy required, I think. Well, that isn't to say he does a bad job--the rest of the CD is quite average, well-done but not superb, it's just that the actual *choice* of the Benediction was highly unecessary. He could have easily fit on another Liszt, or preferably Thalberg, operatic fantasy, maybe the Don Juan or something....but no...

Oh and I also (finally) got the first volume of the Liszt Etudes from Dover. I officially declare it my life's work to learn every last one of those etudes...

Some CDs I just got from the library : Perahia playing both Opp. 10 & 25 of Chopets, Richter playing Rach 2nd and Tchaik 1st PCs, the "Gouldberg Variations" (figure that one out Wink ) and Frederic Chiu playing the Chopets and four Chopin Rondos. All great stuff!

Just bought two of the best CDs I've gotten recently, without including the Cziffra Society discs:

Rubinstein collection Vol. 21: Brahms
Piano Sonata op. 5 in F minor
Capriccio op. 76 no. 2 in B minor
Intermezzo op. 117 no. 2
3 Rhapsodies: op. 79 no. 1 in B minor, 2 in G minor; op. 119 no. 4 in Eb Major

Glenn Gould Edition: Richard Wagner
Siegfried-Idyll, Glenn Gould Conducting--last ever recording and his conducting debut
Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg (Prelude), Piano Transcription of Gould
Gotterdammerung (Tagesgrauen und Siegfrieds Rheinfahrt), Piano Trans.
Siegfried-Idyll, Piano Transcription

...Great CDs. Rubinstein's Brahms sonata is excellent (I haven't gotten round to the rest of the stuff), though I'm not exactly a Brahms expert, and the Siegfried Idyll conducted by Gould is very touching. I can't wait to hear the piano transcriptions, as I've been scanning over the sheets to the Siegfried Idyll transcription for a few weeks, playing parts of it but never too sure how it's *really* supposed to sound, though on paper it looks very simple.

I recently borrowed Brahms PC 2 played by Zimmerman. I never heared any Brahms piece exept the variations on Paganini. The PC was great but it was in 4 movements wich I found strange for a pianoconcerto.

Also I borrowed volum 1 of Håkon Austø playing Debussy. It was like a new world had open itslef to me. Debussy was really a great composer.

Scriabin: Etudes Op. 8 (Peters, I had the Dover but these seem better)

And maybe some other stuff, but I forgot

CD's:
Hough: Liszt recordings
