Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Angel/EMI) Pietro Mascagni – L‘amico Fritz (Freni/Pavarotti)

front-small-boxset
The best Pavarotti recording ever !
If you want to enjoy in Pavarotti’s great talent, don’t look any further. In this great opera Pavarotti shows why he became one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. But to put it this way would be unjust towards all the other musicians that contributed to this fabolous recording. All, without exception, are inspired. Probably thanks to the electrifying presence of Gavazzeni, the gifted although not so famous director. It must be him, I don’t see any other way that every single musician could bring out the best in him or her for this recording. This recording truly deserves EMIs title of “Greatest Recordings of the Century”.

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 96/24 (Delos) Antonio Vivaldi – The Four Seasons (Schwarz/Oliveira)

front-small-boxset
I have many versions of the Four Seasons but in my opinion this is like being in the Audience! There is something about the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra under Schwarz, with Elmar Oliveira the violin soloist and as a person who spent many years in the Pro Audio Business i know a good recording when i hear one. Maybe it’s the Auditorium in this case “The Bridges” in Claremont California. Wonderful stuff, get it while you still can, and you will see what i mean.

Audiophile HD-Vinyls 96/24 (Decca) Charles Gounod – Faust (Sutherland/Corelli/Ghiaurov)

front-small-boxsetIf you want to know this great masterpiece composed by Gounod, or if you are just adding one more recording to your collection, please get this recording! You WON’T be disappointed! I have listened to many of the other catalogue recordings of this opera and this recording leaves them in it’s shadow. The orchestral playing and conducting are a revelation. Corelli is a ‘force of nature’. He portrays Faust as a tortured man. Sutherland is a stupendous Marguerite and Ghiaurov is a herculean Mephistopheles.
