Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Telarc) Modest Mussorgsky – Pictures At An Exhibition (Maazel)

front-small-boxset
A heartly “thank you” to our friend Mats for this gift
Ihmo this is one of the very very few performances (if not the only one) that comes very close to the millenium-recording by Fritz Reiner from 1958. Perfect in any way: tempi, coordination, dramatical atmosphere, sound. Don’t ask me why a digital production, presumably made with 16bit/44.1kHz technology, sounds ways better from vinyl than from CD. I don’t know. Try and believe.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Gustav Mahler – Symphony No.4 (Bernstein)

front-small-boxset
Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this very rare live gem.
Leonard Bernstein’s earlier recording of this symphony for Sony was, and remains, one of the best. This new one, however, really is something special. As in his recording of the First with this orchestra, Bernstein’s tempos have markedly speeded up, especially in the slow movement. He seems to have really discovered the secret of the music’s essential innocence, and he now knows exactly when to make a point and when to just let the music speak naturally. The use of a boy soprano in the finale is unique but not unexpected. Mahler himself thought about it but opted for an adult soprano because he believed that this would prove less limiting to future performances of the work. He was right, of course, but so is Bernstein for letting us hear the composer’s original thoughts in such a pure and enjoyable form. –David Hurwitz
