Must admit I've never been a big fan of the oboe. Perhaps My view's been coloured by my experience in the local school's windband as a kid. The first oboe was a right dick, made a horrible quacking noise, and we'd take the piss out of him for going purple. Amyway, Albrech Mayer has changed my mind about the instrument - even if he does go a bit purple in places - and if you haven't come across him he's definitely worth checking out...

Nice. :swoon:

One of the comments, translated from Italian via Google:
Given that classical music must first of all be listened to, and only secondarily watched play (with the exception of course of opera), this seems to me an excellent performance. However, since even here the performers are observed, the enormous difference in dress between the male instrumentalists, all elegantly bundled in their throat-tight bows and tight jackets, and the female instrumentalists who flaunt very abundant parts of their body always stands out. Of the two, either the instrumentalists decide to dress a little more soberly, or the instrumentalists must be able to free themselves from these constricting clothes.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

:roll: You see that kind of stuff all the time don't you? So much so that you might take it as normal if you didn't stop and think about it.

Yes, particularly in this clip in which the sole female musician flaunting her very abundant parts of her body had an actual view of them obstructed by her viola or the oboist almost all of the time. Whenever neither did so, they were hidden by her dress.

I often peruse comments in order to find information not provided in the uploader's description. In this case I wondered where the encore came from. Someone obliged.
The piece played after the concerto is an arrangement of the prelude 'Ich Ruf zu Dir' from the Little Organ Book, (Orgelbuchklein) by J.S. Bach.
The misspelling of 'Orgelbüchlein' was easy to forgive.

Finnish composers of the 1900s are definitely an acquired taste ("unpopular music") . I had good recording of Sibelius and Klami. They've compiled 5 CDs worth. Only the vocal disc is something I am unlikely to play. Generous samples to play at the link:

I still don't get why you want to pay 50 dollars for a digital collection. If I bought that I would immediately burn copies on CD. So why not buy the CD? In my lifetime we are not going to run our of CD players.

The FLAC copy is 60 dollars. Only sells based on instant gratification (see my post in books on the dopamine book).

But the CD coming into the mailbox, or even a specific delivery date in "tracking" raises my dopamine.

Since we appear to be on a recorder binge, the fourth Brandenburg concerto should fit in just nicely.







Euroarts used to have this one and the other five available along with the actual video, but they seem to have disappeared. Luckily I downloaded them all. (I also bought the DVD on the strength of them. The sound is just better.) If anyone wants to get a hold of the deleted Youtube clips I'll make them available somehow.

Meanwhile, the concerts - sans visuals - are available here.

I have a good number of recordigs. Dutch recorder recordings are the best. Heard these in a church in MO:



that was the encore. They played Vivaldi and consort music, English.
