HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Philips) Georg Philip Telemann – Horn Concertos (Baumann)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to our friend Mats
This disc features four concertos and one suite by G.P. Telemann where horns play a prominent role, and it’s a pleasant 58 minutes of largely but not exclusively bluff, bouncy Baroque music played on modern instruments. Whether under the direction of Neville Marriner or, as in this case, the late Iona Brown, the members of the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields know their stuff. (The recordings date from the mid-1980s, when the hyphens were still there.) Hermann Baumann is the leading horn soloists, though only one concerto calls for a single horn. In three other works he is joined by Timothy Brown and in the single piece involving three horns Nicholas Hill joins in as well. Ms. Brown provides the solo violin parts. Dyed-in-the-catgut fanatics may not view these renditions as authentic, but though modern they are light on their feet, exquisitely played and sound wonderful. Quintessential Telemann wonderfully rendered, it’s worth hearing again and again.

Ripping Info

Monitoring

If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
My rips are almost rough rips.

  • Software: iZotope RX 4 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Super light de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removing, no de-noising
  • DR-Analisys before converting to Flac
  • Converting Wave -> Flac: Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Artwork: Sony Alpha 350, Epson Perfection V750 Pro, Photoshop CS 5.5
