Besides the “epochal” interpretation of the magnificent Wiener Philharmoniker and the presence of the – maybe – most famous Beethoven piano interpreter of the XX century (Backhaus is here at 75 of age (1958-’59), the recording is a perfect example of the astounding sound quality that Decca’s engineers could achieve in the decade 1958 – 1969

Super HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Mercury) Antonin Dvorak – Cello Concerto (Starker/Dorati) 180g Speakers Corner Edition

front_small_boxset
Many thanks to our friend ONKLE, who made possible this audiophile legend comes through!
There is a rival to this recording out of Berlin, with Rostropovich playing the cello and von Karajan playing the conductor. But Starker and Dorati are so fine in the Dvorak — and the Mercury recording is a marvel of clarity and body — I’ve been able to pass on to other things, never feeling the need for an alternate view. This disk seems to project Dvorak’s view itself, what need for another?

High-Definition Vinyls 96K-24B (EMI/Angel) Giacomo Puccini – Turandot (Nilsson/Corelli)

front_small_boxset
Complete new rip, with the new engines – many thanks to a friend from the Lake Michigan for this precious box-set
At the Met, in the mid 60’s, she was the reigning Turandot. She sang opposite dramatic tenor Franco Corelli in productions which became legendary and were always sold out. This recording provides us with a glimpse of what it must have been like at that point in time. Corelli and Nilsson are the power behind this splendid album.
