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...!

I don't know but I'm guessing Biber. A quick factoid: I taught Roy Hay long ago in the days when I was a pedagogue.

Yep, that would have been good. Or one with their fingers tied in knots!

Fiendishly difficult and mind-blowing: I love his large scale choral works with their multiple choirs, such as the Missa Salisburgensis (Paul McCreesh), the Requiem and the Missa Bruxellensis (both Jordi Savall). Great stuff!

There you have the advantage of me: I only have recordings of the Rosary Sonatas and some other instrumental stuff. I will sample the choral works on Youtube (if I can find some).

Yes, do acquaint yourself with these works, and the Battalia a 10 (also Savall) - it's truly bizarre!

Oh yes I do have a couple of recordings of the Battalia. Bizarre is right! What on earth was he on? (Whatever it was, I wouldn't mind trying some...)

I think the 17th century incarnation of Florrie may have popped round with one of her potions...



...purely medicinal, of course.

Aye, a little bit of this, a little bit of that and a little bit of the other can produce great results...



...in a limited number of cases.
