In spite his persona lost part of my consideration, I still like his musicianship

Aging is tough, but it's a nice set of tunes. I didn't know the song titling the album is giving its proceedings to the starving children in Gaza. https://album.link/i/1737901577. It's available on Qobuz too.

I completely understand. However, for myself I just can't listen to his music anymore. Whenever I do I just get mad at how big an asshole he is. The same goes for Van Morrison.

The older I get, the more I refuse to support anyone pushing a message that threatens my way of life.

I will no longer watch Wheel of Fortune because of Pat Sajak's MAGA leanings.

Though it seems tonight is his last show at any rate.

Does my one man boycott make a difference? Maybe, maybe not, but I sleep better.

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 13 - Part: De profundis

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 13 - Part: De profundis
by Estonian National Male Choir (2024)

https://album.link/i/1733353649

https://open.qobuz.com/album/q8ujtzimaqpca -- I probably won't keep up this double posting, if it is me it is on Qobuz..

Example:

Good Chandos recording and performance. It only really suffers from the fact that I don't really treat this as a 'symphony', it is much more of a choral work for me. When I want Shostakovich symphony I turn to the 8th or the 5th. This one I have to be in the mood for the choir. 

I know that there is controversy around this work, and I don't know if this is the censored or uncensored version, I don't speak the language. But it is an epic piece.

Mozart: Violin Concertos, Vol. 2

Mozart: Violin Concertos, Vol. 2
by Francesca Dego (2022)

https://album.link/i/1635576309

Example:

Chandos kind of day... 

I have never been one to really go in for Mozart's super early Concertos, but here, contrasting the 1st and 2nd with the 5th really shows the growth factor, and I feel that the 5th shows him coming on-line as a composer. This version of the Allegro aperto I really liked. Sir Roger and the Scottish I feel give a great platform for Francesca to shine. A touch slow? yeah, but lovely expression.
