Sound Check: Listening Picks from Alexander Platt | July 2021 

Each month here we visit with a member of the community to find out what music they’ve been digging.

Ever since the pandemic began, I’ve been listening even more to chamber music and old-school jazz, which I guess makes sense in a time of solitude. So far, my favorites have been the old recordings of the middle-period Haydn Symphonies by Antal Dorati and the Philharmonia Hungarica—really, chamber music in its ultimate form. Also: the new release of Ella Fitzgerald:The Lost Berlin Tapes; the Prague Quartet’s recordings of the complete Dvorak string quartets, truly one of the great journeys in the history of music; and Erroll Garner’s Magician, the last album he ever made.

Alexander Platt is a conductor and the musical director of Maverick Concerts in Woodstock. Maverick’s 2021 season begins on July 18 and runs through September 12. Maverickconcerts.org.
