HD-Vinyl Stereo 24/96 (DGG) Eduard Lalo – Symphonie Espagnole (Perlman/Barenboim)

front-small-boxset
As great as other violinists on some outstanding “Symphonie Espagnole” recordings are, Perlman really goes to the front of the line in my opinion. His beautiful intonation, amazing technique, and feel for this music (not at all self-indulgent) are just about as perfect as one can hope to get. The acoustics and sound of this recording are just as glorious as is the playing. Highly recommended.

Box 05 with 5 LPs
This is a project I wanted to realize for my life and I started to buy the box-sets from all over the world. It took me around 3 years, because I wanted only Mint or NearMint box-sets. So 3 of them are Mint and never played, all the other are NM. The whole collection costed me almost 600 EUR…if you feel, you want to contribute to this Herakles-work, so you are welcome.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Harmonia Mundi) Ludwig van Beethoven – Symphony No. 7 (Collegium Aureum)

 front-small-boxset
Reposted, now with FF links
Collegium Aureum, led by its first fiddler Franzjosef Maier, was the Grandpa of all period instrument ensembles, way before it became a fashion. The Ensemble was founded in the early 1960s (between 1961 and 1963, sources differ), on the initiative of the music label Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, and, like the later ensembles, started with music of the 17th and 18th Century but slowly moved, in the late 1970s, into the 19th Century and early Romantic repertoire.

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Smithsonian Institution) Johann Sebastian Bach – 6 Sonatas and Partitas For Violin Solo (Jaap Schröder)

front-small-boxset3
Many thanks for this beauty to our friend Booksaregood
How wonderful to have a fine period violin recording of the Bach unaccompanied sonatas and partitas at budget price! Japp Schroeder does a fine, reliable and even job with these hallowed pieces, beautiful in tone (where period playing is sometimes harsh), and historically accurate without opting for eccentricities.
Recorded 1984 and 1985 in the village church of Oltingen in the canton of Basel, Switzerland
