roopoo neat non-folk CD's (12) RE: neat non-folk CD's 15 Mar 01


I've loads of stuff I like, but here's two of 'em:

I got the album by the girl string quartet Bond. They're a bit on the lines of Vanessa Mae and all have varying careers outside the group, from working on rock videos to serious classical performance. (For all you blokes out there, they don't wear much when they perform, either. My 14 year old daughter keeps nicking off with it). My 20 year old daughter has also bought a copy. She has fairly broad tastes in music, but with a Metallica crazy boyfriend, you can tell which direction they tend to go in! There's a cracking "1812" on it as well as some of their own stuff and even an adaptation of a Russian folk tune.

Another good'un I've got is the 1929 recording of Rachmaninov playing his Piano Concerto #2, and the 1939 recording of #3. By 1929 he was sick of performing #2, but it doesn't show. My dad used to have the original 78s, but they were disposed of after he died, and you needed twin decks or a stacking player for them as side 1 had side 10 opposite.
