Jorge Bolet (piano): RIAS - Volume 1 (rec. 1962-73)
Yeah, Teri is great. He finally has a show again, Mondays on WKCR, I believe from about 9:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. He's a very knowledgeable guy, and I was thinking you might have known him, or about him, by your reference to HIP puriists". Out of curiosity, do you know where you encountered that term?
In my mind...
I was thinking that when you capitalized "HIP" that it might stand for "Historically Informed Performance (practice), the way Teri used it!
That's the way I normally see it written.
Oh, so when you said HIP, you did mean "historically informed performance practice"?
If so, I guess this phrase is more out there in the vernacular than I realized!
Indeed to both!
Ok, I gotcha!
One doesn't really look to 1960 Soviet era recordings for an audiogasm, but this sounds pretty decent overall--I can hear some obvious compression/gain-riding and spot mic'ing, but it's perfectly listenable. No, the bass drums don't shake my house the way Andris Nelsons' does, but Kondrashin's is perhaps the most brutally intense version I have heard. The Moscow Philharmonic play as if their lives depended on it.
Brahms two-CD set on Pilz. I grew up on these sets and discovered some wonderful recordings are sometimes among the best (I kid you not).
I did enjoy this album, though didn't listen critically.
All with the Munich Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Helmut Bucher. The violinist on the concerto isn't listed.
Symphony No. 2
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Libor Pesek
Gächinger Kantorei, conducted by Helmuth Rilling
And then for something completely different:
Definitely preferred the Brahms!
Another wonderful recording and pressing from this artist.
