    Curiouser and curiouser.
    Pettersson's 7th is rapidly becoming one of my favourite symphonies.

    Bach – Goldberg Variations (for two pianos)



    Nina Schumann, Luis Magalhães

    A superb, lively and dynamic recording played with verve.

    A delight, - contrasting with the, IMO, rather pedestrian and un-involving performance by Tal and Groethuysen:

    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Something soothing and not too taxing:

    Harp Concertos



    Works by Handel, Mozart and Wagenseil, played by Nicanor Zabaleta.

    That's fine (actually I ordered the Tal and Grethuysen version based on your mention). But I did say "in my opinion", and as Jerry (jokingly) said: "One can't have too many versions of the Goldberg Variations.

    I would love to know if the Lebeque sisters ever recorded the Goldberg Variations for two pianos.

    Why do you think I was joking?

    It's good to see RVW being taken increasingly seriously outside this sceptered isle.
    Excellent recording of some rarely heard works. They are wonderful, though.
