Can you imagine a popular cartoon doing parodies of a current conductor today??

You're welcome !

 

Frankly - no. IIRC Andy Warhol got paid for doing the cover for Rolling Stones album he actually never made - because armada of lawyers representing each musician remotely connected with that recording(s) usurped his place for like three days, and after 75K $ worth of consumed alcohol - they could agree on one point only - that they can not agree on anything ! Some 30 or so years ago .

 

With today's PR & lawyer armada(s) - shuddddddeerrr ...

Do you use speakers for listening mostly or headphones?

Compressed with JPEG Optimizer 2.02, www.xat.com

 

 

Can't speak to the new cd versions(Got it on vinyl) of this recording but this is essential listening for any Bartok fan.

I don't think there's even been a conductor in the USA the general public could even recognize after Bernstein.

 

NOTE: I did say "general".

 

Bases on your sig I'm guessing you're not living in the USA though.....

I'm afraid you might be right regarding "general" public recognizing conductor in USA these days.

 

Even on global scale, few generate stir anything approaching Stokowski, for example, did. Gerghiev comes to mind.

 

You guess right - so far, never been outside the limits of Europe.

 

>On the sunny side of the Alps< is a direct translation of a slogan for tourism in my country, Slovenia , described

I *guess* you will have to enjoy the online translation(s) though...

I'm a HUGE Bartok fan and also a fan of Boulez and Shaham.

Waited for this with great anticipation and was left feeling a bit cold.

 

I'll give it another go tonight.

Out of curiosity could you tell me what qualities make it 

a "favorite" over all the many other great versions of this piece?

Cold is a good word for me to describe how Bartok should sound for my taste ..and the great dynamics and wonderful, very thoughtful violin player is very nice as well

I like everything about it, I don't have that often..

I like Bartok when it reflects the Hungarian folk element. I'm not so crazy about Boulez.
