All three of these recordings are indeed quite excellent.

The Chausson Poeme with Oistrakh is also quite beautiful if you come across it.....

Are you guys talking about this one? 

 

 

On a side note got this one for Christmans. I know that a few of you guys don`t like Abbado but I did enjoy this CD.

That's the Previn disk we're talking about. It's been out of print for a long time. I have no idea why.

I don't often listen to Russian music, but I was impressed with his earlier Tchaikovsky with Chicago and some Mussorgsky excerpts. (Of course, I doubt Berlin hired him to play Tchaikovsky, which might explain some of the opinions.)

Yes it's amazing.

I love this video. Watch in HD. It's easy to let your eyes close, but it's worth it not to.

Thanks Bunnyfluffy for this vid. The music was great and it is always a pleasure watching a conductor how knows how to conduct an orchestra. Too often conductors are so flamboyant that it detracts from the orchestra's performance.  Unfortunately, even great conductors can fall into this latter category i.e. Leonard Bernstein. A solid conductor who guided wonderful orchestras but often thought that conducting was a performance art.

It is all a matter of interpretation how a conductor is to communicate with the orchestra..

 

This boring old Bernstein 'the egomaniac performance act' conductor  story is dead wrong, if only because when one starts filling in individuals motives it becomes mere projection of what you want it to be..

 

It is the music that counts, not the degree of visual distraction..

 

Just sayin :wink_face:
