Wow. I was actually looking for a list of requiems recently but didn't find anything like that.
Hah..Oh yes, his Requiem is very nice, in a third tier kind of way... First tier would be Mozart, Brahms and Faure
Let me first say that Klassik is glad that the ranking of composers no longer seems to be a thing at the Wigwam! The Wigwam must have been going through some troubled times five years ago. Let me then add that Klassik can already hear @Le Baron pounding his fist on the table when he sees that Schubert was put in a list of greats. xD Of course, Klassik does not disagree with Le Baron in that regard.Is your 1st tier only for the absolute greats like Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Schubert?
Well 6 years later, this came through the door today! Look forward to listening later... (very gratified (yet somewhat saddened) to see this thread is still near the top of p1 of this sub-forum!)This cd has superlative sound quality, especially if you can play SACD: https://www.chandos.net/CD_Notes.asp?CNumber=CHSA%205104
To be fair, this subforum has been pretty dead lately. Klassik's post about the Saint-Saëns piano trios almost exactly a year ago seemed to be enough to keep this thread near the top. :S(very gratified (yet somewhat saddened) to see this thread is still near the top of p1 of this sub-forum!)
Yes, let's dust the cobwebs off this place!What?
I'm being poked to post about classical again? Ah, right, Josh is back.
Oh no.. well let's revitalise it. Is @SSM still around?My previous efforts were so popular that a new classical blog thread was started to avoid the one I ended up as the sole poster on.
Interesting. I didn't know the 2nd PC was an homage to Bach. I'll go listen again. The version I have is Idil Biret and James Loughran conducting. I'll check Tomsic out.The 2nd piano concerto is my favourite piece, his magnificent homage to Bach. Especially as performed by Dubravka Tomsic.
Interesting, I'll check some of those out thanks. BTW what's with the third-person referral?Klassik quite enjoys Saint-Saëns' orchestral works, but Saint-Saëns had some chamber works which are real winners. The Carnival of the Animals is obviously the famous one, xD , but there are also the piano trios (along with the Septet and other chamber works for strings and piano that will surely infuriate @Le Baron including the absolutely obscure piano quartet in E which remained in manuscript form until 1992 ) Klassik mentioned earlier and, of course, the violin and cello sonatas which are excellent in Klassik's opinion.
There actually are specific reasons for why El Klassiko speaks in the third-person at the Wigwam. Without going into great detail, Klassik has found that Klassik's third-person posts are not nearly as misconstrued as Klassik's first-person posts and, thus, conversations are more successful. Given that success, Klassik is sticking to the third-person.Interesting, I'll check some of those out thanks. BTW what's with the third-person referral?
