Clearly left nearer the end in favor wider appeal - actually this is quite good - of instrumental and expensive to stage opera performances attracting top tier performers throughout. Solo voice with sparse accompaniment is a subtler more personal experience not everyone will sit through.

I still thank the stars naïve was folded into their distributor allowing this series to continue.

A release came to mind I believe satisfies all the preconditions of this request for someone of your activity and interest level. Album in question exists outside the criteria of this discussion. So it will be suggested elsewhere.


Recent months have shown off the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Elim Chan almost breaking out in tears of joy at being on stage. Coming from Ma/Ax* this revels in escapism (while meeting every government imposed regulation on gathering to perform).


First movement of Beethoven Symphony No. 8 with doubled horns



* MaAx sounds like exactly the wild ride you were asking for. :D
Thank you very much.
I will try to find this on Qobuz

Somehow her last album had a quiet reception at release as well. A spark escaping last century finally collected and set back among the other sources of inner warmth is what the look of reserved contentment promises.

Oddly enchanting opening piece given a studied performance. Rather a successful full album statement artistically, unique. I put on a few Schulhoff albums before listening through this one raptly.
