Very drole, salymap!!
Been listening to:-

San Fransico Symnphony,
*Debussy: Le Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian.
Irene Jacob(narrator) Elizabeth Atherton(soprano)
Jennifer Johnson, Tove Dahkber,(mezzo sopranos),
BBC NOW Chorus and Orchestra,
*This sounds like a really good recording and performance of a work that I havnt heard before.
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life(Berthold Auerbach)
Winterrreise op.89 D.911 (the latest BBC MM CD)
Symphony no.2 (1955)
Firebird (suite 1945)
String quartet no.6 (2010)
Making the most of my 48 hour pass at the Berliner Phil's Digital Concert Hall, now listening to Berio's Sequenza X. Lots more listening to do there before my time runs out. Fortunately things are currently running more smoothly than they did for the Rattle Bruckner 9 (in the 2010 revision of the Samale et al completion) this afternoon. I did eventually get to hear it all.
William Alwyn String Quartets / Naxos
"Music is the best means we have of digesting time".
W. H. Auden
Liszt, B minor sonata played by Clifford Curzon (Decca studio recording).
James Dillon, Philomela (Aeon).
Earlier on R3: Mozart Rondo Alla Turca from Sonata K331 played by Murray Perahia. Brings back happy memories of Richard Burnett playing it [with prepared piano], at his wonderful Finchcocks keyboard instruments museum in Kent.
Villa-Lobos: Bachianas Brasileiras No. 4, No. 2 & No. 3*
José Feghali (*piano)/Nashville Symphony Orchestra/Schermerhorn
Stravinsky: Symphony in Three Movements
Brewer (soprano)/BBC Symphony Orchestra & Chorus/Sir Andrew Davis (BBC MM)
