INDEX

(INCLUDES INSTRUMENTAL)

The index below lists augmented captions for "BEST FINDS OF LAST YEAR", CROCKS Newsletter reviews of the "CHAMBER" (includes instrumental) genre, which earned their "BEST FIND" stripes back then (see the CLOFO homepage). They're alphabetically listed by caption category, i.e., "COMPOSER", "PERFORMER" or "ALBUM TITLE", under similarly marked headers.

Each augmented caption ends with a "Continue" link that not only calls up the parent newsletter, but moves to the starting point of its associated review. What's more, there's a product "AVAILABILITY" table below the commentary, showing retail web sites that stock the subject album. Clicking a retailer's name invokes their corresponding product page, thereby facilitating the ordering process.

Folkertsma: Stg Qts 1 & 2; In Memoriam... (stg qt), Andante (vc & pno), Romance (vn & pno); Soloists/Vondel Qt [Aliud]
RECOMMENDED BEST FIND (1 CD)
Born and trained in the Netherlands, Paulus Folkertsma (1901-1972) spent most of his career as a teacher, but would also manage to write over a hundred works in a variety of genres. As performed here, five in the chamber music category fill out this new release from Aliud, and judging from the quality of this music it's hard to believe he was entirely self-taught. These are the only recordings of... Continue

Reger: Cpte Org Wks; Bach, J.S.: 30 Hpd Wks (org arr Reger); Haas/Albiez Org, Mutter Kirche, Frankfurt [MD&G]
AUDIOPHILE BEST FIND (14 CDs)
German composer Max Reger (1872-1916) left an immense oeuvre, subsuming many organ works in which he seems to have inherited the mantle of J.S. Bach (JSB, 1685-1750), The latter have never fared better than on these fourteen MD&G discs with Max' complete output in the genre on recordings made between 1988 and 1993. Originally released separately at full price, here they’re offered in a bargain box at... Continue

Taneyev, S.: Stg Qts Cpte V5 (8); Stg Qnt 2; Buswell/Carpe Diem Qt [Naxos]
AUDIOPHILE BEST FIND (1 CD)
It's taken almost ten years for the Carpe Diem Quartet (CDQ) to complete their survey for Naxos of Sergei Taneyev's (1856-1915) nine completed works in the genre. This final installment features what's referred to as his "eighth". But as mentioned before, chronologically speaking their numbering is totally misleading.

Walter, Bruno: Pno Qnt, Vn Son; Liu/Vida/Peherstorfer/Häusle/Huber, Sato/Frolova [Naxos]
AUDIOPHILE BEST FIND (1 CD)
The year 1876 saw the birth of Bruno Schlesinger in Berlin, who’d go on to become one of the twentieth century’s best loved figures. But not by that name as he changed it in 1896 to Bruno Walter (1876-1962), to get his first conducting position in what was then Breslau, Germany (now Wroclaw, Poland; see album notes).

He started out as a composition student at the... Continue

AUDIOPHILE BEST FIND (1 CD)
Born in Rolle, Switzerland, Julien-François Zbinden (b.1917) makes his CLOFO debut here. At age ninety-eight as of this writing, he can claim the title of the oldest living composer in these pages!

After receiving his musical training in Paris, Zbinden would first pursue a career as a pianist in the pop field until 1947. He'd then go on to head the music departments for a couple of Swiss Radio... Continue
