Hi Sorin!
Kujiken's Petite Bande and The Age of Enlighment
It must be a good recording!
If I find it in one of my usual on-line stores, I will put it in my whishlist.

How is this? I really enjoy his chamber music (check out the Chamber music topic to get some samples), but wasn't aware of any sacred music that he'd written.

It's a masterwork. Great.

About this particular (good) recording, I have seen that is not not common in on-line stores, and probably is little known out of Italy.
Here is the download page from a French site

Link

In Amazon.com I have found this:
a double CD full of interesting stuff (along with the Stabat Mater, there is also the d-minor Symphony "La casa del diavolo" = The Devil's House: rococo Paradise and Hell together :lol: ):
Link
There is also another double CD with I Solisti Veneti, conducted by Claudio Scimone and the soprano Cecilia Gasdia:
See details here

Go to the YouTube section: in one of the last posts I have put the video of the I movement (Stabat Mater Dolorosa) from another recording.
To day or later i want to open a topic about this work and unpload one or two short mp3s.

Right after I asked the question I saw the YouTube clip. I loved it, and will probably pick it up (at least it's added to my huge list of stuff to buy should I ever win the lottery).

Right now listening to "On the Way to Bethlehem (Music of the Medieval Pilgrim)"

Boccherini again:

Quintets for guitar and strings:
no. 2 in e maj
no. 7 in e min
op. 30, no. 6 in c maj "La ritirata di Madrid"
no. 4 in d maj "Fandango" (obviously the last mov., the fandango, is in d min!)

Pepe Romero guitar
Marina Sirbiu / Cristina Dancila violin
Massimo Paris alto
Mihai Dancila cello

Image

I have not found this record (music for UNICEF) on sale on the web
By way of compensation, you can listen to the Fandango from the website of the Stradivari Quartet
here is the LINK:

Homepage Quartetto Stradivari
enter - listenings
there's also a track from Haydn's "Sunrise" quartet

Now, from YouTube: Scott Ross plays the Fandango of padre Antonio Soler

Hi Sorin!
Kujiken's Petite Bande and The Age of Enlighment
It must be a good recording!
If I find it in one of my usual on-line stores, I will put it in my whishlist.

I've given this a good listen-to, and it is indeed a good recording. Some consider La Petite Bande's Haydn symphonies to be 'definitive,' though I'm not sure I'd go that far. They have a good romp with them, I'll say that much. The Violin Concerti and Sinfonia Concertante are why I bought it though and they certainly didn't disappoint; hearing the former on period-instruments makes them seem much more substantial, and the latter was a true joy. The album is pretty cheap, so it's definitely worth the price.

Here it is again:

That's a disc that I listen to from time to time when I'm in the mood for something older. It really is good stuff! 8)

This week I've been on a bit of an Alkan odyssey...

Charles-Valentin Alkan
Concerto for solo piano
Marc-Andre Hamelin
Hyperion

Image

Alkan charts a course for the furthest horizons of the piano and Hamelin takes us there in great style. A must have! :D

I'm always willing to investigate different concerti, but what's up with that album artwork?! Freaky!!!
