Written in the summer of 1910, Symphony No. 10 was Gustav Mahlers final work. At the time of the composers death, the composition was not fully orchestrated, and was unperformable. The version performed here is the Deryck Cooke final version. The Seattle Symphony performs this monumental composition under the baton of Principal Guest Conductor Thomas Dausgaard. On this live performance: It was impossible to be in the house and not realize that something rare and significant had taken place. (The Seattle Times)

Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra summon a magical set of distinctly American impressions. Morlot is a sorcerer with this kind of music, finding balance between the work’s myriad events: ominous strings cast dour moods, while woodwinds interject with unanswered questions.

Genre: Classical, Opera | Label: Opera Rara | Catalog: ORC48

Caterina Cornaro was written in the extremely productive last period of Donizetti's life (between Don Pasquale and Linda di Chamounix) and was the last of his operas to be premiered in the composer’s lifetime. Like every other work of this period, it is intensely original, in this case being unusually dark in both subject matter and general musical tone. This is the only opera of Donizetti’s later period not to have had a quality modern recording.

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 02:23:42 | 688 MB
Genre: Classical, Choral | Label: Nimbus Records | Catalog: NI 5709/10

With so many fine-to-great Messiah’s already available, who stands to benefit from this lackluster, hardly serviceable offering? William Boughton’s conducting is pedestrian at best–the performance lumbers along politely, ignoring every one of Handel’s many opportunities to soar. This is especially excruciating in the choruses: rarely have “And he shall purify”, “Lift up your heads, O ye gates”, and “Let all the angels of God worship him” not to mention “Hallelujah” advanced with such leaden, dispassionate propriety.

Soprano Greta Bradman has selected a touching programme of pieces that root her to her family, from “O Waly, Waly” and “Songs My Mother Taught Me” that transport her to the farm where she grew up, to memories of her grandmother through “The Last Rose of Summer”. “Every Day Is A Rainbow Day For Me”, written by Greta’s grandfather, the great cricketer Don Bradman, for his wife, is a particularly charming moment, and performed in a magical arrangement. A joyful album from start to finish.

Janis backed by one of the greatest symphonies ever assembled (the 50's/60's Chicago Symphony under the baton of the micromanaging Fritz Reiner) put together in short a legendary and frenzied performance of the Rachmaninov Concerto No. 1. I wish I could stop there, but unfortunately this recording was coupled with a stale performance of the No. 3.
