Im just enjoying the Adagio from Dvorak's 4th symphony - one of the most beautiful and neglected slow symphonic movements I know:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bI64Tsw1zHc starting at 12:25

The beginning reminds me a bit of the Tannhauser-Overture, but then it develops in a most haunting cantabile manner how only Dvorak can do it!

Love the new Beethoven symphonies (1 and 3) from Philipee Jordan and the wiener symphoniker. Looking forward to the rest as they get released. Could be competition to the excellent Chailly set.

I will have to give a listen to some of his music. Did any of Messiaen rub off on him?

I've a feeling most everyone here is already familiar with this, but...

The other day I followed a YouTube recommendation titled "The Piano Documentary," which turned out to be NOT about the piano itself (as I had assumed), but some of histories acknowledged "great" pianists. Some very fine performances are heard/seen, along with interesting commentary. I am especially happy that it includes Richter's video performance of Chopin's "Revolutionary" etude with better (but not stellar) audio quality than its standalone YouTube equivalent.

Good question. The use of pre-serial techiques applied to rhythm certainly was a factor: see his Modes des valeurs. You can find out more about this on the web very easily, Sorrano.

That was a good listen. However it took a bit to get into it as I had just been listening to some excerpts from Bartok's Bluiebeard's Castle. That was a contrast!

Thanks!

Listened to a videoed concert performance of Schecharazade at YouTube the other day that includes a most "interesting" take on the final movement. I'll start the link at the beginning of that movement, though what causes me to single it out starts some way in.
