In Reply to: RE: Oh: also, Challenge's new Shostakovich VC 1 is out, with Lamsma and Gaffigan; you've likely heard more posted by firstname.lastname@example.org on April 09, 2017 at 19:19:18
Better not to take the chance on being labeled a misogynist. ;-)
BTW, I have Simone's Elgar album on Naxos - I like it! I think she's appeared a couple of times with the SF Symphony, but I missed them both.
Actually, I think her cover photos on the Challenge label show her in a more flattering light - especially the "big hair" Mendelssohn/Janacek/Schumann album:
D'oh! There I go again - I just can't rid myself of my misogynist ways! If only those record companies wouldn't put those lurid photos on their covers!
Lamsma played the Britten concerto with the Cleveland Orchestra, as a replacement for Janine Jansen. A lot of the performance was out of tune. Maybe she had an off-night...
. . . after one of her appearances with the SF Symphony. Since I don't trust our local critics, I kind of dismissed his remarks. But since you mentioned the same weakness in her playing, it would seem that there IS something to that observation. (The Elgar CD I mentioned seems fine to me in this respect however.)
Well, Lamsma is coming back for another Cleveland Orchestra appearance in the upcoming season. I'm no longer a season subscriber, so I definitely won't be attending.
