Just testing: can't-tell-you.

(I typed the same word, and had the same - very curious - outcome.   Huh

This is very weird. In my last post the word i_p_h_o_n_e (without the underscores) was replaced by "can't-tell-you". What gives?

apparently the admin has auto changed the word eye _p_h_o_ne  to i can't tell you....i don't know why..??  who knows... its silly... we are all big boys here.

stumbled on a used CD of interest in a used bookstore:   Stankovich's Symphony of Pastorals/Chamber Symphony... on the Consonance label with the Ukrainian State SO performing and Fedor Glushchenko conducting.. and some Berwald Symphonies with DNRSO performing Dausgaard conducting. 

some times these used CDs are 50 cents USD...wonder how they stay in business.....

Respighi - wonderful composer ! Didn't have the Concerto a Cinque...rectified that, thanks !

May stick to Italy for tonight's music - the 3 Ps...Perosi, Petrassi, Pizzetti; + 1 more..Procaccini, then some Ghedini & Rendine, plus to finish the marvellous Malipiero.
Sure there's a bottle of verdicchio to go with that !

I just ordered a "bootleg" copy of Shteinberg's Symphony no 5  Symphony Rhapsody by the St. Petersburg SO (rehearsal performance).  Looks like it is 42 min long.. divided into 4 movements  1. Lento  2. Lento non troppo 3. Moderato, alla marcia, 4. Lento   

Notes says Symphony-Rhapsody based on Uzbek tunes-folk songs and by K. Djabbarov and S. Kalanov.     

Hoping to share it, however, since its coming from St. Petersburg.. it may take a while.

Agree about Respighi, especially the 'later, lesser-known'. Own a couple of recordings of the late (1933) Concerto a Cinque, but I think I like this one - the earliest, also the first one I heard - most. I don't think it's a masterpiece, but thoroughly enjoyable it certainly is. A bit like the even more strictly 'neo-classical' Harpsichord concerto in Manuel de Falla's oeuvre or like Samuel Barber's Capricorn Concerto (or even Stravinsky's Ebony Concerto for that matter).

Surprising - to me at least - how much Respighi produced beyond the 'obvious'...& it's all lovely stuff.
 See where you're going with Barber Capricorn & De Falla harpsichord - but not a huge fan of the 'Ebony', I'm afraid. Maybe the YT commentator who suggests Stravinsky didn't fully understand the jazz idiom is onto something; it does seem a bit of a mess to me.
Dunno - I'm no expert !

Love the harpsichord, so a few pieces involving that tonight sounds promising:
Dutilleux -Les Citations for harpsichord, oboe, double bass & percussion
Aperghis - Le Reste du Temps for cello, harpsichord & ensemble
Henze - Apollo & Hyazinthus for soprano, harpsichord & ensemble
Tabakova - Suite in Old Style for viola, harpsichord & strings
McCabe - Concertante for harpsichord & chamber orchestra
Szymanski - Partita 3 for amplified harpsichord & orchestra
