Hendrik Andriessen, Symphony No. 3 (1946) - Andriessen probably my favourite Dutch composer:

Now listening to a work by the english (born bulgarian) composer Dobrinka Tabakova:
Immortal Shakespeare, for chorus & small orchestra.

If you're not aware of her bulgarian start, you would be certain that you listen to a very english work.

I picked up the new CD of Atterberg Vol 2 with Neeme Jarvi conducting....  seems somewhat faster tempo's  as compared to the CPO release.
After that I picked a used copy of Eduard Erdmann Sym no 3 on CPO....   new condition CD at just $4 bucks...what a deal!   I love used bookstores...

Just put the brand new Zara Levina Piano Concerto 1 and 2 in the CD player....if you remember, the Piano Concerto no 2 was a poor recording on the Russian Disc label as Nina Makarova: Symphony in D minor / Zara Levina: Piano Concerto 2..

this new recording on the Capricio label is sharp and crisp.  The piano performance is wonderful.  Maria Lettberg is on piano with the Rundfunk-Sinfonie Orchester Berlin.

Hendrik Andriessen, Symphony No. 3 (1946) - Andriessen probably my favourite Dutch composer:

I was once at a concert where I sat directly behind the composer Louis Andriessen. I had such a temptation to lean forward, tap him on the shoulder, and tell him how much I enjoyed his father's music.

 Grin Cheesy I sat directly behind him about ten years ago during a re-enactment in Utrecht of his father's 'The Fourteen [Canonical] Hours', whilst he was sitting next to the -then- Roman Catholic Archbishop (even Cardinal) and heard him accept the latters congratulations with his father's music.  Cheesy Cheesy Wink (Hendrik was an staunch Catholic BTW).

And I personally grabbed him with his neck (literally, I blush to confess) twenty years ago, after a concert, in the pub next to the Amsterdam Concertgebouw in order to introduce him to Pēteris Vasks (whose Third SQ had just been premiered there by the Kronos Quartet).

But to do Louis a little more justice: here he is (after 22 seconds) in the audience, clearly moved by a superb RCO performance under Reinbert de Leeuw of his father's fine Ricercare:

I found numerous orchestral pieces by Charles Wuorinen on YouTube, had never really explored his music before, not too interested in the electronic things but very much enjoyed these instrumental pieces.

On today's menu is some modern Swedish music:  Blomdahl's Three Symphonies on BIS, and Rosenberg's Sym no 6 and 3...then I've got the new Tuur CD "Peregrinus Ecstaticus" from Ondine with the Finnish Radio Sym Orchestra.

Michael Nyman's 'Musique à grande vitesse' was the last work I listened to today. It's a hypnotic work; the moment you're beginning to think about quitting the work, the orchestra changes and you're (or at least I was) captured again.
