HD-Vinyl 96/24 (HM) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – 2 Piano Concertos (KV 246 & 537 – Jörg Demus)

Reposted, now with FF links
It is a phrasing and articulation briliance that Mr. Demus brought up again to the audience. His marked, singing rubato in melody line still strong in acurate accompainment and right choose of tempos makes this performance remarcable and superior over many other that I’ve heard so far.

Still today after +50 years, this is – IHMO – the best recording (in technical sense) and the best performance of Cho-Cho-San “Butterfly”. If you always looked for a reason to love on your knees Leontyne Price, this is the right time to do it.

Thank you Mr. Trottar for this great vinyl!
Brailowsky’s is still the definitive interpretation of these Chopin masterpieces. The spirit, emotionality, and technical excellence with which these polonnaises and other beloved Chopin piano works are rendered is irresistible. Does he pound the piano? Oh, yes! I wouldn’t have it any other way.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Philips) Ludwig van Beethoven – Missa Solemnis (Sir Colin Davis)

front_small_boxset
Many thanks to a special guy from the Michigan Lake for this vinyl-donation
This performance of the Missa Solemnis Op. 123 is inspired, rich of sensitiveness, deep, well balanced, but vivid and not obvious. Colin Davis smoothly matches the global vision and the richness of details.
R.I.P. well, Maestro!

Claudio Abbado is one of those rare conductors who seem to get more youthful and enquiring with age, while at the same time his music-making takes on an ever greater profundity.
