    Far from it though a little goes a long way ... I think Gould's idiosyncratic approach has its merits and certainly its fans, it's brought a lot of people to this music who might otherwise have never had it come up on their radar, leading them on to explore further.

    What I meant was that it's the opposite of Gould's dry, intellectual (though still passionate) presentation, it's a big, bold sound-scapey performance (as indeed is the other one that Jerry found - I hadn't been aware of that) where unlike in Gould's version, it's impossible to be conscious of ever note, just as you can't be in a piece of Chopin or Liszt.

    I first heard this in a record, CD and new-agey tat shop in a small town in the Nordheide south of Hamburg. The aria came on and I set myself a task to see if I could figure out whose it was. When the first variation came on I was completely flummoxed by all the extra notes, then captivated, and I just had to come home with a copy (in fact, the CD that had been playing as they only had the one).

    This is a very interesting take by a living composer of the Goldbergs - not on Spotify unfortunately as it's Hyperion....

    I find Reger quite difficult.
    This is by far my favourite music by him that I have heard - solo violin sonatas - superb sq here, too.
    I've had the CD for decades, and now on Spot.

    Yep, he seems to have shrugged off his fearsome technical formality (which is how I hear much of his music) and is just having some post-Bachian fun, just reveling in making beautiful music.

    A bit of unashamed Romanticism here, longings of old Vienna...

    Can't beat a theorbo for a proper baroque rhythm section!

    Gave this a spin tonight on CD, very interesting ... about as un-authentic, non-original, plain 'wrong' a performance as you'll find - in fact I thought playing Gibbons on the piano was probably made a criminal offence around 1975 or thereabouts - but somehow quite captivating.

    Tsk tsk - I am deeply shocked - your old music professors will be turning in their graves, assuming they are now in them.
    You'll be listening to the Goldbergs played on an accordion next, Tom.

    Ooo, I do enjoy a bit of Turina chamber music now and then. It's got a nicely 20th century edge to it, but still full of melody and sumptuous textures.

    These are wonderful cello-like pieces - I'll commit heresy and put them on a par with Bach's cello suites.
