Alexander Grechaninov - Suite for Cello and Orchestra Op. 86 - Aram Khachaturian - Concerto for Cello and Orchestra - Bamberger Symphoniker, Alexander Symeonides - Werner Thomas, Cello - Koch Schwann 1986

Of course my wifi seems to be stable again, now that I have to get dressed for work and haven't slept at all. Sheesh. For this reason, I can't not post at least one more recording before leaving; too frustrated from the 'net issues from earlier on! This is an out of print disc from the Koch label, which I obtained this cd for the Grechaninov (I already was familiar with the Khachaturian Concerto, which is very fine) "Suite for Cello and Orchestra" which Grechaninov composed during the 1920's (I'm not sure of the actual year/date, and the booklet notes share my ignorance as you will see) and it doesn't disappoint. I especially love all of the Grechaninov recordings on Chandos, and also the chamber music discs on MD&G and Hyperion. Then there's good older recordings on Marco Polo and I think a couple of more recent on Naxos....and so on. My physical copy of this disc is god knows where and this older rip I have on a hd, hopefully whenever I find it again I will update and encode the files to AAC.

That's all for now, I hope everyone enjoys!
