HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Georg Friedrich Händel – Royal Fireworks Music

Reposted, now with FF links
Why, folk, while main DGG productions always sound well or very very good, the Archiv productions by the same house DGG sound much better?
Can someone lift the curtain from this mistery?

  1. Bob: Rachmaninov, you live in Germany, right? Have you ever seen a copy of EMI’s 1965 Kienzl’s Der Evangelimann by Heger, Gedda and Rothenberger?

    Didn’t see a response on the other message program, so I thought to give this a try.


    • sorry Bob…once i had one “Evangelimann” but it wasn’t EMI….
      Is underrated among the collectors and consequently it is pretty scarce

    • Bob……don’t be angry if you did not receive a response to your questions in a hurry….i think, Mr. Whatever deserves a lot of days to be with him self in peace…he really works very hard on this “our” blog.
      Me too, but i try to keep my eyes open, if he isn’t here
      (i need a long, very long vacation…..)

  2. Oh, Rachmaninov and/or Whatever,I’m not at all angry. Rather I’m delighted with the work of you both more than I can make words say. Both of you are like an encyclopedia of knowledge in both the genres of classical music and the technology of sound reproduction. My questions are not out of anger, but out of respect for you both.May you be blessed with long life.

    Thank you for your response here. I wasn’t sure which was the better place to write so you would see it.

    To my beneficent benefactors, from your humble recipient,

  3. Thank you, Rachmaninov, great work as always.

    By the way, a little question, are you by any chance il maestro Catalani in some other website or someone is again uploading your hard work as if it were his?

  4. thank you.
    Archiv label was separate from DGG.
    The recordings were better and with selected performers.
    This one appears to be selected re-issue/compilation of
    Archiv Produktion – 198 146 Released: 1962
    Archiv Produktion – 14139 Released: 1959

    • I got a few Archiv records and for all of them the sound engineer is a DGG one, K.A.Naegler. You can search for Naegler on discogs.com. I tried to search also with other names of DGG s.e. of the 70’s and the 80’s. All of them worked both for Archiv and DGG.
