Musical Wish List

Postby Catmando » Fri Jun 16, 2006 8:52 am

Here's a post for music fans to share their "Wish lists" for CD's or concerts at your local symphony.

I know my wish list changes (or I should say increases!) daily!

Today, on my way to work, I heard a Ballade for piano by Brahms in G minor (I don't remember the opus number), but it was swashbuckling and it's the latest on my wish list! :)

Hmmm...everything classical. With just two CDs in my collection (actually four, I also have 25 Mozart and PIT Favourites) you can expect my wishlist to be quite long. So here goes... (just off the top)

A complete cycle of LVBs symphonies
The Four Seasons
Brandenburgs
Bach's Violin Concerti
Something Tchaikovsky

I've been thinking about this CD that contains the 1812 Overture, Marche Slave and a few other of Tachoikovsky's works. Bernstein and NYPO - it has a (colour) picture of Bernstein conducting on the cover...at the moment I can't find it on Amazon. Got any opinions on it? I'm just itching to get a couple of other CDs....listening on the internet is getting too expensive. I might just get some tomorrow.

Navneeth,

Would it be this one?

I have one that is similar on vinyl, from the old Columbia Masterworks collection. It's very good.

Yes, I think that's the one - the picture matches. Although, I don't remember seeing anything from Hamlet.

It says it includes bonus tracks, so I would guess that Hamlet is one.

Navneeth,

This is the Vivaldi disc that I have at home. I enjoy it very much, it's fairly inexpensive. It includes the Four Seasons concerti.

I got myself the violin concerti performed by Menuhin along with the Bath Festival Orchestra and the PIT CD mentioned earlier. :D Shap, it does contain the Hamlet oveture. :)

(Well, those tags are supposed to strike off the two from the list. )

My current wishlist (which is long!):

Bruckner - Complete symphonies

Dvorak - Complete symphonies

Brahms - Complete orchestral works

Beethoven - Choral Fantasy, Mass in C, Missa Solemnis, Christ on the Mount of Olives, Piano Trios, Diabelli Variations, Cello Sonatas.

DeBussy - La Mer, Claire de lune, Prelude d'un apres-midi d'un faune

Chopin - Piano works

Stravinksy - The Rite of Spring

Saint-Saens - Danse Macabre

Jerry Goldsmith - The Omen (1976 soundtrack)

Michael Oldfield - Tubular Bells



Oy vey! A long list.......

Any recommendations on any of these, especially the non-Beethoven works, are welcome. :shock:

My only suggestion: Re: Tubular Bells Get the original 1975 version, none of the later releases lives up to it!

Shap - I gather you are referring to the Tubular Bells II and III?

Thanks for the tip! :)

I was planning on only getting the original, for now.

Tubular Bells II and Tubular Bells III, Orchestral Tubular Bells, and Tubular Bells 2003. :(

Poor Mike, his only hit. Rather than building on it, he just redid it, and redid it, and redid it. Talk about resting on your laurels!

B.com had a recording of Tubular Bells 2003, which Dan Played once.

He kinda learnt from Vivaldi, didn't he?

I guess there is a precedent for that sort of thing, isn't there.

I guess that lets Sylvester Stallone off the hook, as well. :D

And I don't like Tubular Bells. I do, however, like Vivaldi's concerto that he wrote those infamous four hundred times. :D

Haven't decided about Rocky. When does Rocky XVII come out?

Selma,

I think it was six hundred times. :D

Mike Oldfield has some catching up to do, even if he just wants to keep up with Stallone.
