The latest round of rediscoveries hits Lincoln Center next week: the Beethoven
Project Trio will present the New York premieres of one rediscovered and two
little-known Beethoven trios on May 18th at Alice Tully Hall. A new recording of the rediscovery,
a piano trio in E-flat Major, will come out from Cedille Records the following week.
I have two questions relating to this event.
1. Can anyone name a recent rediscovery or reconstruction of a work by a
major (dead) composer that is particularly notable, or made a strong impression,
either in performance or on record?
2. There exists a huge repertoire of pieces that aren’t “undiscovered,” yet
are seldom played. What neglected piece would you like to hear on a concert
program in the next season or two that you feel is unfairly
Have at it.
