HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Philips) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Symphonies No. 34 & 38 (Marriner)


Many thanks to our friend Dagote for the immortal Marriner
Trust Sir Neville Mariner and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields to handle Mozart–whether early, middling, or late–with brio. Then add the technical excellence of Philips to the value inherent already in the great composer and one of the twentieth century’s finest houses for Baroque and Classical music. The result is of unsurpassable value. This is another great listening experience performed by The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, under Sir Neville Marriner. The interpretation is outstanding, though a little different than what we traditionally hear for Mozart.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) Antonio Vivaldi – The Six Concerti For Flute (Petri, Academy SMITF, Brown)

front-small-boxset
Many thanks to our friend Mats for this wonderful record
It is a fine academic point whether these Op. 10 concertos were originally written for recorder or transverse flute. When the recorder is played with such brisk virtuosity and faultless intonation as Michala Petri consistently provides, only a dullard could ask for anything more. At a rather piping modern pitch (a sopranino recorder is used in Nos. 3, 4 and 6) and sympathetically accompanied by the ASMF, these concertos come over as fresh as paint on vinyl with just an occasional gargantuan breath from Petri to show that she is human.’

Piggybacking on Alf’s recent Brendel posts..

For those not familiar with Brendel, his mastery of the keyboard is at a level that few will ever be able to reach. Here, though back in 1982, Brendel has already “owned” the works, playing each Mozart work with fluidity, precision, and smooth sonority. Brendel’s playing is a delight, and that is true regardless of how many other recordings you might have of the Mozart piano concertos.

The recording here by Philips is very good, and the trademark smooth and rich Philips recording characteristics are in full play. It is unlikely you’ll have much, if any at all, issues with the technical aspects of the recording itself.
