Yes, Todd seems incredibly knowledgable; as are others from that website.

 

😅 You are fully entitled to your opinion, but would be fun to discuss it here. Now I know how you are going to vote in the ABC Classic 100 Beethoven 😄

Hi LHC,

Actually that quote above was me quoting tonyg. I like Beethoven's concertos, in particular David Oistrakh playing the Violin Concerto in D Major op. 61. I have a nice US Angel Records pressing, posted  here recently:  https://www.discogs.com/master/view/250242 may be i should vote for this in the classic 100?

 

As the for the Sonatas, not really across them, but I like Rudolph Serkin's three Favs:  https://www.discogs.com/master/view/383929 

Et tu?

Nigel North, Johann Sebastian Bach ‎– Bach On The Lute volume three. Linn Records ‎– CKD 049 UK 2007.


I only have vol. 3 , it is a very good transcription by Mr North. The good folk at Linn Records say on the CD that they sound better played on a Linn CD player, well they would say that. If they could only see my cheap & cheerful portable I use when working (supposed to be writing an overdue report), they would shake their heads....

I don’t think I’ve posted here before. Only in Jazz and regular currently spinning so... hi.

 

My 8yo asked me what the saddest song I know is so I played her Richter’s On the Nature of Daylight and this

I never really saw the point of pianoforte. I thought, why bother when it just sounds weak and insipid compared to a piano. This recording, particularly “moonlight" completely changed my mind. The first movement sounds so much darker and more grim than on the piano and the third has way more urgency and desperation. It totally changes the tone of the piece for me

Andreas Staier, Concerto Köln,  Antonio Salieri, Joseph Anton Steffan  ‎– Concertos for Fortepiano. Teldec Classics ‎ 4509-94569-2 CD, Germany 1995.

 

Speaking of fortepiano, I 'recently' heard (in the pre-novel coronavirus world) an underwhelming recording of someone playing one of the late romantics (maybe Schubert) restored fortepiano. For all the hoopla they were making about it (ABC Classical), it sounded like a expensive assemblage of kindling to my ears, not that I want to ignite or inflame any tensions on this thread.

 

Then today I listened to this CD of Andreas Staier, a fortepiano specialist and what a difference in SQ. I have other good recordings of fortepiano works played on an original instruments, but this build; a fortepiano made by Monika May, Marburg 1986; after Anton Walter c. 1785, has an especially pleasing tone.  Better to play on a 'replica' perhaps, than something that sounds like a worn out Celesta...
