    Interesting video of Barbirolli rehearsing Bruckner 7 - agonizing over every note - never realized just how pronounced his cockney accent was -

    Believe it or not, I actually have this box as well but it is still in shrinkwrap. So a one-hit wonder composer has his own box of CD's ...

    I subscribed to the magazine for about twenty years. Approximately sixty CDs from that time are worth listening to more than once.

    Menuhin & Grappelli: Friends in Music

    "This 4 CD set containing all the recordings that the two legendary violinists Yehudi Menuhin and Stéphane Grappelli made for EMI is a further release in the EMI Classics ICON series.

    The 4 CDs contain 86 songs, many by the great American songwriters George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin and Cole Porter, as well as jazz standards like ‘Sweet Georgia Brown’, ‘Lullaby of Birdland’ and ‘Crazy Rhythm’. There are also 13 items composed by Grappelli himself, several of which were written specially for Menuhin.

    The song ‘I didn’t know what time it was’ by Richard Rodgers on CD 2, recorded in Holland in October 1977, is being released here for the first time.

    Arrangements are mostly by Max Harris, but those from the LP called Top Hat are by Nelson Riddle."

    Icon: Menuhin and Grappelli

    "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing"...

    There are 86 tunes spread out over the course of these 4 cds...

    You can randomly choose any one of the 86 and I guarantee within like 30 seconds you will immediately be able to identify Menuhin from Grappelli... With all respect to Menuhin - who I greatly admire - he just can't swing and he gets consistently outplayed by Grappelli over the course of each of the tracks.

    You'll get a pretty good idea of the difference at the 2:10 mark of this video -

    Got my amp back yesterday. Haven't listened to anything until now, and decided to play this Wasowski 2CD-set and see/hear if everything is OK:

    Another BBC Music Magazine CD. Includes The Creatures of Prometheus, Op. 43. I have John Lill's ASV 1970s Beethoven sonata cycle (reissued on Brilliant), which doesn't get a lot of attention, but I think it's very good.

    That took some time, hope the amp plays fantastic again.
    Did they tell you the reason of the mailfunctioning?

    Nope, neither my dealer nor Latham, the importer, could find anything wrong with the amp, although my dealer heard the crackling noise once, as he told me yesterday. Should it occur again, the amp will go straight to Salisbury, UK, where Naim is based. I really hope it won't be necessary, the more so since it will then probably take many months and the upcoming final Brexit may cause additional problems at the border.

    A good way to start Sunday morning. Bruno Turner directs the six singers of the Pro Cantione Antiqua, London. Recorded 1978, St. Trudpert. Recording: Dr. B. Bernfeld & P. Casulerras. Technical equipment: Sonart, Milano. It appears that St. Trudpert is a former Benedictine Abbey in the Black Forest of Germany, now occupied by a community of nuns. CD from 1990.

    ...and I think it's precisely those qualities that make Sinopoli a great opera conductor that inspire his orchestral conducting as well. We have seen the same with other great "opera" conductors like Carlo Maria Giulini, Ricardo Muti, Antonio Pappano, James Levine, Georg Solti and Gustav Mahler.

    Memphis is quite different from the other three largest cities in Tennessee. (Nashville recently passed Memphis to become the largest, both nearing 700,000. Chattanooga & Knoxville are nearing 200,000.) The land there is flat, with Mississippi just to the south & Arkansas just across the big river. You can divide our state into three "divisions", West, Middle & East. Memphis is West, Nashville Middle, Chattanooga & Knoxville East. Memphis in some ways belongs as much to the Delta region of Mississippi & Arkansas as it does to Tennessee.
