HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Decca) Giacomo Puccini – Turandot (Sutherland/Pavarotti)

front-small-boxset
This is not the rip from 2010 and not from 2012 but a complete new rip (Oct. 2015) in 24/192
This is the best „Turandot“ you can find in this world, my friends. Maestro Mehta and the fabulous dream-team Sutherland/Pavarotti are not of this galaxy. Add the great and wonderful voice of Ghiaurov and an angelic Caballè, perfect choir, a speedy drive, perfect tempi and intonations….i could continue ’til Xmas……not at last the stunning audiophile sound.
You‘ll never find a better „Turandot“ – Sutherland was ideal for roles like the cruel chinese princess and Pavarotti was born only for the role of Calaf. Finally, Maestro Mehta was born only to create this “work of the century”.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Turnabout) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Complete Music For Two Pianos (Brendel/Klien)

front-small-boxset
Many thanks to our friend Trottar and Jean-Luc for this gem
The Concerto
K 448 receives a stupendous performance at the hands of the young Alfred Brendel and Walter Klien (an old campaigner). What a delight this is. The soloists are utterly synchronous with one another to the point where their tone is near-identical: I cannot tell who is who. Their high spirits and éclat are unsurpassable. They also join forces for the Double Piano Concerto, K 365, which Mozart wrote for his sister Nannerl. Again, this is a triumph of exuberance – and the orchestral forces, conducted by Paul Angerer, impart grace to proceedings.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (RCA) Giacomo Puccini – Turandot (Nilsson, Björling, Tebaldi, Leinsdorf)

front-small-boxset Many thanks to our friend Bob for this gem
Even though I prefer Sutherland over Nilsson in the role of Turandot, this is the BENCHMARK. Even though Pavarotti & Caballé with Sutherland, Fernandi & Schwarzkopf with Callas and Corelli & Scotto with Nilsson on the other album are excellent, Björling & Tebaldi are the pick of the litter! The role of Calàf as sung by Björling, is one of the most beautifully sung portrayals in recorded music (subjective, personal opinion). Tebaldi’s pianissimi are absolutely ethereal, easily rivaling Caballé and surpassing Scotto. For early “Living Stereo”, the sound is surprisingly spacious and clean. This I believe was Björling’s last complete opera recording; the Verdi Requiem closely following.
