    Investigating Schnittke: always liked the symphonies and chamber, but this was new to me

    Schnittke - yep, love some of his music, have yet to come to terms with some.
    Choir concertos and piano concertos are my favourite, I think.

    Beautifully mysteriously haunting ...
    Two violin concertos.

    By A customeron 21 March 1999 - Published on Amazon.com
    For those who have grown weary of the accepted wisdoms of classical music through the ages and the one-dimensional, dynamically compressed nature of most contemporary music, Giya Kancheli's compositions are a breath of fresh air. The music swings from barely-there echoes from the netherworld to visceral blasts of unrestrained passion.

    The only Kancheli I have listened to has been 'Little Imber':



    Interesting, but it hasn't so far turned me into a Kancheli fan. Ought to listen to some more!


    Oh, and 'Themes from the Songbook':



    Perhaps I ought to try some of his symphonic works. What would you recommend?

    I played quite a bit of Reger in the days when I was forced to learn modern stuff (mainly for exams) alongside my usual renaissance, baroque and classical fare. Enjoyable stuff.

    Just reminded me to dig out Rheinberger/Reger arrangement for two pianos of the Goldbergs. For non-fans of the Gouldberg versions this is the perfect antidote.

    The Aria is fairly conventional but it soon moves into its own world ...

    Study: Speakers - Tannoy DC6; Amp: Pass Aleph 'Mini'; tube preamp - Gate Audio tube; Vinyl: Garrard 401 with AT1503 Mk I tonearm and vintage Ortofon SL-15e with matching Ortofon 2-15k SUT; Phono Stage from Gate Audio preamp; Digital - Trichord Genesis III CDP + Arcam rBlink.

    I like the sound of that, so just ordered it from Amazon.

    Do I take it from your pun that you are not keen on Glen Gould's interpretation?
