Post Subject: Jerry's Anton Nanut CDsPosted by JANDL100 on: 10/4/2007
Here's a list of my current holding of Anton Nanut CDs ....

Beethoven symphonies 1 to 8

Beethoven overtures: Leonora III, Coriolan, Fidelio, King Stephen, Ruins of Athens

Beethoven Mass in C

Berlioz Harold in Italy & Roman Carnival ov.

Brahms piano concertos 1 & 2 (with Tomsic)

Bruckner 8th symphony

Dvorak 8th symphony

Fererro - orchestral pieces

Mahler symphonies 1, 4, 5 & 6

Mozart piano concerto No. 13, KV415

Mozart Clarinet and Bassoon concertos

Rimsky Korsakov Scheherezade

Schubert 8th symphony

Shostakovich 7th symphony

Strauss - Also Sprach Zarathustra

Tchaikovsky symphonies 4, 5 & 6

Vivaldi assorted concertos

.... hmmm, I think that is all.


For some reason I find myself less enthusiastic about some of Nanut's concerto recordings.  There is a complete set of the Beethoven piano concertos, but I don't find his usual soloist, Dubravka Tomsic, much to my taste - she often sounds a little 'clunky' to me. Also I recently obtained and then threw away a Dvorak cello concerto that didn't seem very special.  The Brahms PCs listed above are OK, nothing more.  Nanut is best when he is in complete control - just Nanut and an orchestra.

I would love to hear his Brahms symphonies, but have never come across any recordings.  Also more Bruckner - the site Romy found says that all 9 were in Nanut's repertoire, but I somehow think he only recorded the 8th - I would love to be proved wrong!

Rgds, Jerry
