I hear that. Maybe I just need more coherence... a la Steinberg's Passion Week.I agree the music doesn't "come together" as coherent musical works. It's more a stream of consciousness type of thing, just moment by moment creating a beautiful place to be.
This is annoying, I heard Kogan with MRSO here, which was great.musicbox wrote:
Au contraire, mon ami! - I'd rate it above the Tchaik or Mendelssohn VC any day.
Played by Rosand or Kogan though (among others, I am sure) and it is a most wonderful piece of music .....
I don't intend this as a willy-waving contest (please pardon my French) but what violinists have you heard play the Khachaturian VC, mb? I am genuinely curious.
I have not seen the YouTube Moscow performance you linked to before.
Wow, that's a stunning performance and recording.
If you click the return arrow on a quote it'll take you to the post being quoted!I had to dig back to 2007
Sorry, missed that. I can't find that recording online anywhere so will have to make do with Kogan, which is fine I'm sure.I mentioned the conductor being Bakels.
I had a feeling Moscow would be better - I guess just Ruskies playing Ruskie music. I'll likewise save the piece - it was very good.Performance-wise.... there's a wonderful sense of flow in Moscow, more velvet to the sound as well.
It's good to have both, but I'd be happy with only the Moscow on YouTube
