Another cracker! Mosolov, The Iron Foundry. An amazingly inventive piece; unique, indeed. I have the Concertgebouw version conducted by Riccardo Chailly

Yes, Iron Foundry (1926-27) is a seminal work, together with Prokofiev's equally decibel-busting Scythian Suite (1915-16) and Varèse's Amériques (1918-21, rev. 1927). Quite a trilogy...

...well worth getting to know. Just make sure the neighbours have safely toddled off to the supermarket for the large weekly shop.


Agreed. I have several recodings of both the Scythian Suite and Amériques. I once attended a concert at the RAH (don't ask me when) in which the Scythian Suite was programmed. I didn't know there were that many professional percussionists in London, and to have them all in once place...!
