Lovemyguitar wrote:That is a very enjoyable recording, but do be aware that most of the pieces are very much arranged, sounding quite a lot like the music of the arrangers (rather than like the music of Beethoven!). I am not knocking it -- it is a very lovely CD, played beautifully by Elias and his cohorts -- but it is only the merest of glimpses of the great composer!

Hopefully you will be encouraged to seek out some of Beethoven's other works in their original forms, and I would highly recommend almost any of his chamber music (piano sonatas, violin sonatas, piano trios, string quartets, etc.), as that is where much of his most sublime music can be found (although, if symphonies and concerti are your thing -- by all means, try those, too). Enjoy -- Beethoven's music is an exciting and intoxicating place to be (I visit there often!).


Thanks for advice! I will now also need to hear some non-arranged Beethoven originals. Right now I'm listening to Diabelli variations, played by Andreas Staier on a fortepiano. I'm not a huge fan of symphonies, but I will definitely go and listen to the main solo piano and chamber works of Beethoven.

That's great! I hope you love them as much as I do!

Handel's "Messiah" as I do every December, it's just so uplifting - and I'm an atheist and a fan of both rock and classical guitar. Different types of music shouldn't be mutually exclusive, it's all music when all's said and done isn't it?
It doesn't take any brains to listen to music.

Respighi. Ancient Airs and Dances, Suite no. 2 movement IV , Bergamasca , Allegro .

It's very uplifting and beautifully written. I'm listening to the Naxos recording on Spotify.

Schlagsaiten Quantett "Gypsy Punk" ... a local band, acoustic guitars, bass and cajon. An interesting mix of rock, swing, gypsy, flamenco. Like them.

Golgotha by Frank Martin
Nikolai Kapustin's 24 preludes and fugues
Henry Martin's 24 preludes and fugues
Rodion Shchedrin's you can take a guess here. ;)

I'm liking the Kapustin so far and the Shchedrin has some inspired moments but I'm starting to gain more appreciation for the DSCH cycle in comparison to these sets.

The Ben Johnston string quartets that were finally recorded by the Kepler quartet are well worth listening to.
