Foerster:  Piano Trio No. 2//Novák:  Piano Trio No. 2//Janáček:  Pohádka//Fibich:  Trio (Kinsky Trio Prague) (it's nice to see Klaus Kinski and daughter Nastassja and son Freddo getting together to make music)

Jealous of the Birds:  The Moths of What I Want Will Eat Me in My Sleep

Beethoven:  Symphony No. 9 (Jones/Schwartz/Kollo/Moll//Bernstein/Vienna Philharmonic)

Beethoven:  Missa Solemnis (Moser/Schwartz/Kollo/Moll//Bernstein/Concertgebouw Orchestra) (the Manfred Honeck performances I had planned to go to see in Pittsburgh were cancelled -- but this is some recompense)

Franck:  Fantasie/Pièce Heroique/Cantabile/Grande Pièce Symphonique//Guilmant:  Organ Sonata No. 1 (Alain)

Grieg:  Album Leaves/Improvisation on Two Norwegian Folk Tunes/4 Piano Pieces/Poetic Tone-Pictures/Humoresques/Nordic Dances and Folk Tunes (Austbø) (OK, this is the kind of music that, in theory, I hate.  But played here by Austbø, I am quite charmed.  Am I that susceptible to anything Nordic?)

Bach:  Toccatas Nos. 1-7 (Esfahani) (interesting but clunky)

Renata Flores:  "Mirando la Misma Luna"

Rentata Flores:  "Mirada"

Renata Flores:  "Tijeras"

Renata Flores:  "Qam Hina"

Sibelius:  Overture/Kuolema/Two Songs from "Twelfth Night"/Kung Kristian II -- Complete Incidental Music (Pajala/Torikka//Segerstam/Turku Philharmonic Orchestra) (am I deluded in beginning to think that Exemplary Post-Modernist Leif Segerstam is like the best Sibelius conductor ever?)

Mozart:  PIano Concertos Nos. 17 & 24 (Shaham//Robertson/St. Louis Symphony Orchestra) (it takes a lot to find something to say in these familiar pieces without resorting to gimmickry -- but Orli and David somehow do!)

John Adler/Adam Cuthbert:  Scarlet Rising Moon

Smetana:  Má Vlast (Hrûša/Bamberger Symphoniker)

Brahms arr. Schoenberg:  Piano Quartet No. 1//Schoenberg:  Accompanying Music to a Film Scene/Chamber Symphony No. 1 (Rattle/Berliner Philharmoniker) (Rattle is limited -- but there are some things he really does better than anybody)

Memelsdorf/Staier:  Delight in Disorder:  The English Consort of Two Parts 1640-1680 (two-part consorts by W. Lawes/H. Lawes/Matteis/Locke/Coperario/Purcell/Anon.) (you definitely get the feeling that Stuart England must have been a fun place to live in at least musically)

Various:  Nigeria Special Vol. 2:  Mdoern Highlife & Nigerian Blues (Vol. 1 was spectactularly good -- as enjoyable and enlivening  as pop music gets -- and Vol. 2 isn't far behind)

Ted Hearne/Saul Williams:  Place

Quelle Chris/Chris Keyes:  Innocent Country 2 (this is one of those stupid pop music attachments.  I love Quelle Chris.  I wish I were his friend)

Cardew, Material. Improv stuff, very Derek Bailey-ish.

Cardew was mentioned in the article about Igor Levit in The New Yorker, which has many interesting listening suggestions. And hey, Busoni!
