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.

Superb HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI 12 LPs) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Complete Piano Concertos (Barenboim)

front_small_boxset
Note: the record with Concerto No. 12 had a big, hugly and very deep scratch, ca. 4 cm, exactly in the middle of the grooves, touching the whole 2nd mov. of this concerto. Impossible to restore (pick-up jumped at every turn like a frog), record is destroyed. Mov. 1 and 3 were restored, but I had to take mov. 2 (44.1 kHz/16 bit) from the CD-Edition, that Mr. Whatever offers. The cover was restored by me in a long Photoshop session.
