Excellent album of the Elgar and Dvorak cello concertos by Noras on Finlandia, very much helped by the clear and vibrant recording.

Sergei Slonimsky.
The composer on everyone's lips.
Err, probably not!

But this album is very good - a very Russian choral/vocal suite followed by an excellent sinfonietta.

I bought this disc in 1990 a year after it was originally released in 1989. I very much prefer Klara Kormendi as a Satie interpreter over many of the more well-known standard interpreters like Reinbert de Leeuw (too slow & overdramatic), Jean-Yves Thibaudet (patchy), Aldo Ciccolini (some good pieces, but he got lazy & rattled off some later recordings). Kormendi's version of Gnossienne no.2 treats the opening c-d repeated quavers with a touch or rubato, in a way that doesn't make it sound like a mechanical piece.

Before I got this CD the best versions I had of Satie's works (and there wasn't all that much before 1990) were the multi volume vinyl by Jean-Joel Barbier (60s-early 70s?) & the selections album by Peter Lawson (1980) which has the best versions of the melancholy nocturnes 2 & 4.
