A Couple of Encores

Bach Organ Preludes and Fugues, Volume 1- Anthony Newman

Includes the "Great" A minor fugue, Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor (Not the famous one. The better one.) and much more. Recorded on a monstrous Rieger organ similar to the one above.

Beethoven- six songs- Cecilia Bartoli, mezzo-soprano, Andras Schiff, piano

These are all Canzoni, or Italian songs. A very obscure set of Beethoven works; his lieder are hard to come by. Includes Op. 82 1-4, WoO 124 and WoO 133.

By the way, happy 20,000th hit to us! We've had visitors from 43 countries, and many seem to be coming back; it makes us glad to see such a large, and growing, community of masterfaders.

Congrats on the number of hits. I hope the masterfade community keeps growing: it should - this is great music. Thanks for Cecilia. I am starting to prefer the mezzo voice to the soprano - recently bought a couple of CDs by Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, and she is marvellous. Recommended listening for all masterfaders.

Thanks for Beethoven's songs! Too bad Op.82 isn't complete...

I could be wrong, Aleksandar, but the only other part of Opus 82 is a duet. So all the solo lieder in the opus is on the given download.

Please, please, please more Bach keyboard works - complete organ works would be wonderful. This a great blog you have, I plan to visit again.
