I'm just catching up on other BaLs too.  Clarke's Viola Sonata from 17 October.  I think Helen Wallace also gets this right - Tabea Zimmerman.  It's less obvious this one.  And I wish Kim Kashkashian (don't mix her up with Kardashian!) had recorded it - she has a fabulous sound.

My goodness. It's the first time I've heard any of that Isabelle Faust/ Claudio Abbado performance. Even from those extracts it just seems to contain everything you could possibly hope for. What do you reckon, Tommo?

Very fine.  I didn't hear the whole thing, but the clips on BaL were very good, as was that Berlin Phil clip.

Kate Molleson chose Itzahk Perlmann as the finest of the "older-school", and I am surprised to say I agree with her there too.  Berg in the tradition of the full 19th century violin concerto a la Brahms.  Not quite right with today's ears on, but a different direction away from Krasner....  And still good.

I really must knuckle down and learn this concerto!

[Alastair - if you had wanted to avoid CHEEBSE, then Epoisse, would have gone instead of Exmoor Blue.  But I think I am now going to call Cheese, Cheebse.  It has a certain ring to it.....]

Anyway, back to the ranch....

Listening to BaL on Berg's Violin Concerto right now.  Kate Molleson seems to have given the game away very early - anyone wager she'll go for Isabelle Faust?

I do have to agree though on a lot of her choices and decisions to knock off the list.

The Krasner recording at the outset was amazing!

I am afraid I now cannot do Saturday 25th. Poo.  Plan to be there on 28th.  Even if I have a quiet drink alone!

Ohh - ploppy ploppy poo plops.  I was looking forward to getting my hands on those.

Actually, thinking along those lines, can we do two small gatherings - meet ups on 25th and 28th?  People can choose what day they like.  I can do both.

Anyway, nom nom

25 may be doable for me.  Would be good to meet HtoHe.  But 28 is by far the better date, personally - if there are other takers?

Shall we plump for 25 July, 7.30, George?

Since the traditional June assembly has been missed, how about one in the second half of July?

Still applicable to 2105.....

Anyone fancy a MeetUp?  28 July would be great for me, but actually any date after 23rd is manageable.
