Howdy folks, Catching up on some work before my day off tomorrow, Whit Friday Marches (http://www.whitfriday.brassbands.saddleworth.org/intro.html), going to need plenty of Chop Saver after this!! Anyway, listening to the following CD , North German Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by John Eliot Gardiner play Rachmaninov : Symphonic Dances, Janacek : Taras Bulba. (Deutsche Grammophon, 445 838-2) I played the Rachmaninov some years ago with National Youth Orchestra of Ireland (www.nyoi.ie) and really enjoyed it. If I remember we did Janacek Sinfonietta the following year (Mahler 5 was the "other half" of the program!), and Tarus Bulba the year after I left. Anyway, I quite enjoy the above CD. Anyone else played these works or have any comments? Manny?
