Special HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Decca) Joaquin Rodrigo – Concierto de Aranjuez (for harp)

front_small_boxset
A particular and rare gem – enjoy ! Reposted, now with FF links.
It’s lovely to hear from Mme. Robles in her concerted repertoire. The Handel, Boieldieu and Rodrigo concerti have hardly ever been in better hands (the Rodrigo transcription was made at the request of the Spanish harpist Nicanor Zabaleta, who played it brilliantly as well), and it’s a delight hearing them again in such excellent sound.

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/96 (EMI Columbia) Camille Saint-Saëns – ‘Organ’ Symphony No. 3 (Louis Fremaux)


Without a doubt, one of the best performances of SS’ 3rd Symphony
Fremaux’s performance of the “Organ” Symphony is the only version I have ever felt was worthy of mentioning in the same breath as Charles Munch’s famous 1959 RCA recording with the Boston Symphony. What’s more, the Fremaux performance deserves its multiple releases. The interpretation displays energy, zest, excitement, and grace aplenty, with a second-movement Adagio that flows over the listener in soft, warm waves.

# Composer: Camille Saint-Saëns
# Organist: Christopher Robinson
# Orchestra: City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
# Conductor: Louis Fremaux
