ERNESTO HALFFTER: Carmen (film score) – Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra/ Mark Fitz-Gerald – Naxos
First recording of a remarkable film score for one of the many silent versions of “Carmen.”
This is down-home, driven Darmstadt doodling in my book.
Harmonies/Orgel Modern = KRENEK: Four-Winds Suite, Op. 223; LIGETI: 2 Etudes; CRISTOBAL HALFFTER: Ricercar; SCHNITTKE: 2 Little Pieces; ZSOLT DURKO: Andromeda; RAINER BISCHOF: Cadenza, Op. 19/2 – Martin Haselbock, organ – NCA
Amazing vibrant sound, but probably for specialists.
