What are you listening to right now?

OK, it's a tried and tested forum topic, but I thought it might give some insight into members' tastes, and hopefully lead to some new discoveries.

So I'll kick off with

RE: What are you listening to right now?

Speaking of Hindemith, we should not forget his actual masterwork, the Opera Mathis der Maler. We are fortunate enough to have two very competitive recordings: an older one with a stellar cast, led by Dieskau, under the baton of Kubelik, on EMI, and a newer one with a good competitive modern cast under the strict and powerful baton of Simone Young, on Oehms.

Ah, Naupilus, now you are in a core repertory field. There is a saturated market of recordings for Brahms and even Schumann's Violin Sonatas. The latter's exist in at least two (quite good) versions with Pianoforte too!

Can you let me know which recordings you are about to explore? (For Herzogeberg, I presume there should the one on CPO). We might have something to discuss on these works and their recordings.

I am familiar with the Brahms sonatas and have a slight knowledge of the Schumann. My only recordings here are:

Brahms violin sonatas - Schneiderhan & Seemann (DG - I really love Schneiderhan. The Beethoven violon concerto remains a personal favourite, deft and with the wonderful  cadenza from the piano transcription). I also have the Zuckerman/Barenboim recordings somewhere in a box - I may dig those out too.

Schumann violin sonatas - Gringolts (Onyx)

Herzongenberg - as you say the CPO recording

I will be also adding the Gernsheim sonatas (Kirpal, Brilliant) as I think these will add to the mix.

 

I have a love hate relationship with Brahms - at times I find the music just a touch worthy. But then, in the hands of a great musician, I find there is an ebb and flow of tension underpinning all Brahms best work that speaks to a deep comtradiction in Brahms. There are moments and movements that have extraordinary passion (the last movement of the 4th symphony is unleashed in a tempest). Fascinating composer... but I can't forgive him for falling asleep while Liszt played.
