The Classical mixtape #007

Notes about update #007 of The Classical mixtape.

Talking about Jean-Philippe Rameau. The true classical recording of his piano music is probably the one that Marcelle Meyer did in 1953 and 1946. She worked with Lex Six and they had her as their favourite pianist. She also made a number of recordings and the one with music by Jean-Philippe Rameau is legendary. I usually find it difficult to appreciate really old albums but this is really good.

You don’t hear the the symphonies of Villa-Lobos that often. Naxos is currently making a series of albums with them. The eleventh, for instance, is really good.

Lastly I must mention Valery Gargiev’s recording of the sixth symphony by Tchaikovsky. Such power.
