Gilding Dark (an ambient orchestral piece) has been judiciously rearranged and rereleased, and is now available on Bandcamp. Over a week’s worth of work, condensed into two minutes and five seconds of alternatively sonorous and discordant tonality.
Sergei Taneyev : String Trio in E-flat major Op. 31 (1910-11) – a performance on violin, viola and cello.
Vasily Kalinnikov – Symphony no. 1. – a majestic symphony.
Frescobaldi’s Toccata by Rob Dougan (Orchestral Session) – a lively, commanding rearrangement of Cassadó Gaspar’s Toccata in the Style of Frescobaldi (1925).
Sergei Rachmaninov : The Isle of the Dead, Symphonic poem Op. 29 – Andrew Davis – performed by the philharmonic orchestra; conducted by Sir Andrew Davis. Inspired by the work of the Swiss painter, Arnold Böcklin.
S. Prokofiev : Dance Of The Knights by the Boston Symphony Orchestra – one of the better recordings of the piece I’ve heard (its often played far too fast).
Froberger Suite by Marco Mencoboni – a excellent harpsichord performance.
