Handley ??Enigma Variations .....Handley, Boult and Barbirolli are still the default choices for this repertoire, of course.
I must have missed reading something elsewhere: didn't know you and Handley were on the outs.
I heard a radio interview with Handley once - he took pride in his undemonstrative approach to interpretation. Fair enough - the guy clearly knows what he wants to achieve, and is talented enough to achieve it.I must have missed reading something elsewhere: didn't know you and Handley were on the outs.
that's a sneaky turnaround to having your blunt ways again.Not everything is going to be to everyone's personal taste. Are we not allowed to share dis-likes as well as likes around here?
Other parts of the Wigwam have interesting exchanges based on different points of view, explicitly stated. Why not here?All conductors gain critical immunity after death.SS
Forgot to pop in the winkey emoticon in earlier message.
Isserlis? - thanks for the tip - I shall look out for it on eBay !thanks for the postings - we seem to be meeting in other threads too!I've got a few recordings of the cello concerto, and the one I return to is by Steven Isslerlis -on Virgin Classics (2cd set). It's not only the Elgar, but his Faure is wonderful too- I always enjoy the tone of the gut, and his interpretation is just right for me - he provides a wonderful bridge into the music.
