HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Requiem (Barenboim)

front_small_boxsetThis recording is a gorgeous performance of Mozart’s excellent Requiem. Sheila Armstrong, the soprano, has a shimmering, pure, beautiful, above all a Mozartian voice – she shines in this recording. Baker has a rich voice that she uses with intelligence. Nicolai Gedda is radiant in the tenor role and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau is at his considerable finest as the baritone. Daniel Barenboim conducts extremely well, and gets great singing and playing from his chorus and orchestra.

HD-Vinyl 24/192 (EMI) Carl Orff – Carmina Burana (Frühbeck De Burgos)

front_small_boxset
This copy seems to be a promotional one, because of a sticker on the rear cover, “telling” that this is “Manufacturers Property Not For Sale”.
This recording was made shortly after Frühbeck de Burgos had lead the piece in concert with the New Philharmonia. The performance, which he conducted from memory, was hailed as a breakthrough in nuanced yet sometimes barbaric intensity. The chorus and soloists gave Frühbeck de Burgos everything he asked for in this recording. I highly recommend this recording.
