What are you listening to right now ?

This same thread idea has been very popular at Amazon.com, so I will start it here.

I am presently listening to Carl Reinthaler's oratorio "Jephta und seine Tochter", conducted by Wolfgang Helbich on CPO.

atm, listening to Weingartner's 2nd |Symphony, conducted by Marko Letonja, also on CPO - great music, great recording, great performance! :)

Thanks for the info about Weingartner. Been looking at getting all the symphony once they're all issued...

Listening to Hummel's Oratorio "Der Durchzug durchs Rote Meer", on CPO also.

A.P:
Tell me more about the Weingatner.
I've been reading reviews of the string quartets recorded on CPO. Is he like a more Wagnerian Brahms ?
Regards

I'm listening to Karl Czerny's "The art of finger dexterity" played by Francesco Libetta.....amazing! I've had it on order with Amazon since March and they were finally able to trace a copy----fantastic! Now I'll be better able to bridge the gap between me and Czerny!

I'm listening to Tchaikovsky's symphony number 3 - the "Polish". Wonderful as always with Tchaikovsky. I'll have to check out the Weingertner.

William Alwyn Piano Concerto No.2
Naxos recording
Excellent, underappreciated work available for £5
Think Rachmaninov mixed with some Elgar and a dash of Prokofiev / Ravel

G. G. Durante :
You have piqued my curiosity about Alwyn...

Listening to sound bytes of Carlos Mena singing Sances' Stabat mater on Mirare. Haunting stuff.

Exactly at this moment, Love and Other Demons, the new opera by Peter Eotvos on BBC Radio 3 (very good it is too - actually logged on to look for CDs of his music). More generally, the Beethoven symphonies, in pairs: in the original versions played by the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique under John Eliot Gardiner and then in the solo piano transcriptions by Liszt played by Leslie Howard.

Listening to Magdalena Kozena's CD "Songs my mother taught me". Beautiful.

I would love to know a bit more about Weingartner's 2nd symphony or even his symphonies. I am a Mahler, Brahms and Schuman fan. How would you describe Weingarters symphony for someone like me. Anyway happy listening.

Smetna, Má Vlast, Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra on Naxos.

I thought I was buying something to stretch my musical appreciation, little did I realise just how much I knew of it already.

Schumann violin sonata No. 2. My first hearing. Sublime. Part of a 6-CD Schumann box which was very cheap - even in a chain store.

Czerny wrote far far too much, but there's some amazing stuff buried away under those 1000 opus numbers. Try the piano sonatas too . . . and don't forget he contributed to the Hexameron Variations (compiled by Liszt on a theme of Bellini which also includes a stunning variation by Chopin). Long may our fingers be dexterous!

I agree, Mr. Pritchard. Not just the famous Vltava movement. The whole work is vigorously performed on this Naxos recording by the excellent Polish National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Antoni Wit.

Leading up to Christmas: Handel Messiah with The Sixteen and Harry Christophers as cond. This is the finest recent recording of this work.
Also, sang it last weekend, in chorus - Simon Berridge was excellent tenor soloist.
