March 9, 2014
Etude in A-flat, Op. 25 #1 - Chopin - Alfred Cortot
weightless, faerie
Overture, Scherzo, and Finale, op. 52 - Schumann - Seattle Symphony Orchestra, Gerard Schwarz
phrases with hinges, sequences slipping cogs
Sonetto de Petrarco No. 104 - Liszt - Vladimir Horowitz
seizing stillness, staring straight
Scherzo in E-flat minor, op. 4 - Brahms - Yefim Bronfman
scary story but reliable :: delicate, witty :: ssbr :: dreamy, ardent :: ssbr
Selections from Die Walküre - Wagner - Seattle Symphony Orchestra, Gerard Schwarz
such long lines to hang from
near Burns, Oregon, 1990

Concerto in A - Liszt - Musica Orchestra Vienna, Michael Gielen, Alfred Brendel
going nowhere. disinclined to allow alternatives to going nowhere.
NB: of all the pieces I listened to this week, I keep coming back to think about this one.
Night on Bare Mountain - Mussorgsky - Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Fritz Reiner
Fritz&crew take this at a helluva clip.
Jeux d'enfants - Bizet - Arthur Gold, Robert Fizdale
idealized play (no bickering), before the fall from prettified fairytale into myth

Symphony in C minor, op. 68 - Brahms - Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Charles Mackeras
triumph of the sensible - though it's fun to hear the snarl of open horns and the differentiation of entrances among the string sections various strings. I probably listened to this piece too often as a teenager to be able to hear it properly anymore.
Guide Right - John Philip Sousa - Philip Jones Ensemble, Elgar Howarth
In Session at the Tintinabulary
