Discussion: In the Shadow of War

I recently received a batch of Bis discs that have been released over the past several months. This one is, by far, my favorite. Nothing profound to say, but this is special music, performed beautifully. I just wanted to call people's attention to it, since the title may be offputting to some.

I like it very much, too. Superb performances and sound.

It occurred to me last night, there is the Pentatone SACD from 2011, Music for a Time of War. Similar title, although the cover image is not as specific, great music too.

I am ordering a bunch of BIS SACDís this week and this one is on the list. Of all big name cello concertoís Schelomo, if we can even call it a concerto, is my all time favorite particularly the orchestral part which really comes to life in an uncompressed recording.

The Schelomo's quite good, though it's nowhere near as high on my personal list of favorites as on yours'. But the real gem is Frank Bridge's Oration, an absolute masterpiece in my book. And Stephen Hough's mini-concerto is a very pleasant surprise. All in all it's a wonderful disc.

Bill, agree completely. Has given me much pleasure in a contemplative sort of way. I think Oration may be Bridge's masterpiece. Many thanks to BIS/
