What Classical are you spinning?

Just got a shipment of 3 out 5 Naxos CDs from Presto Music’s recent sale (2 are back ordered). Starting out with this very nice recording of Beethoven’s “The Creatures of Prometheus.”

I don’t have any other recordings of these pieces to compare this to, but I’m enjoying it greatly. I like Alsop’s work anyway. She used to guest conduct here in Indy with some regularity, and I still recall a particularly effective reading she did of James (or Jimmy, as she called him) MacMillan’s “Confession of Isobel Gowdie.”

The fact that Leif Segerstam is the conductor makes interesting! Here are some of his sayings:

“The kaleidescopic flexator on the podium — the conductor.”

“The winds can rehearse the length of the teedle-eedle-boom.”

“Keep the fermata of the rest interesting.”

“It is very beautiful what you played, but you are forgetting one thing that makes it tomorrow too loud.”

“We get a plankton plasmatic flimmer.”

Those are great! I admit to not being familiar with either him, or this orchestra (though I see in the liner notes that the orchestra traces its origins back to 1790, when it was founded as “The Turku Musical Society”).

Fins seem to pay good attention to classical.

I have been enjoying this CD quality ad free station for years :+1:t2:
I tune to it using streamers.

Playing something for @stevensegal …interesting modern ballet music if you’re in a relaxed mood and let it flow.
