Wilhelm Killmayer's Hölderlin Lieder.

I'm listening to the version for voice with orchestra. To be exact the first Zyklus. The use of the orchestra is absolutely splendid.
I also listened as a comparison to the version with piano. Here also the voice with the texts are the stars. The piano is backing up. Surprisingly the same happens in the orchestral version!

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948

Very acceptable, Mr. E ! Are you listening on 'classical-music-online' ?

For anyone unaware, this resource has a significant amount of Killmayer's work available(+ many hundreds of other composers !).

I'll let you know in a week or two.... got sidetracked listening to Klami's symphonies.....

I enjoyed just walking into Ondine's headquarters retail shop in downtown Helsinki and purchasing some CDs....reminds me of the old Tower Record days.....

Mr Clive,

Indeed, I listened to it on Classical Music Online, and decided to download the files of the orchestral version. The piano version was already in my collection, from a broadcast by the Bavarian Radio, quite a few years ago. After listening to both versions, I can not decide which one is my favourite. This orchestral version does not overpower the singing voice.

No, it doesn't - so, for me, the orchestral version will always win; the bigger picture, eh....actually, just means I'm too stupid to appreciate the subtleties of piano-only accompaniment !

Anyway - current listening ! Came across the chance to get hold of a good collection of work by Erland von Koch, & working my way through some of the concerti, for guitar, oboe, saxophone & tuba. Very melodic, delightful compositions.

Currently enjoying this cd,which arrived today. The cd has been deleted by Chandos,although it is available as a download.I managed to buy an inexpensive one from a seller on Amazon. The only other copy was being advertised at around £150,or thereabouts!! Lovely,lyrical,beautiful music,all of it,and with an admirable economy of expression. Not a note too long! And,I might add,wonderful performances! Like the two Lyrita cds it is hard to see why this beautifully written music is so neglected by the cd labels and,with the exception of one or two of her most popular compositions,here in Wales,of all places! Sad

I notice the £150 ish pound copy (of Grace Williams 'The Dancer' cd) is gone from the Amazon listing! Does this mean someone actually paid that much?!! Shocked Of course,perhaps the seller just removed the copy! Mine was a couple of pounds! They could have saved a few bob! Described as in "Good condition",I would describe it as "Very good". A few minor marks on the cd itself,aside!
