Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Angel/EMI) Pietro Mascagni – L‘amico Fritz (Freni/Pavarotti)

front-small-boxset
The best Pavarotti recording ever !
If you want to enjoy in Pavarotti’s great talent, don’t look any further. In this great opera Pavarotti shows why he became one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. But to put it this way would be unjust towards all the other musicians that contributed to this fabolous recording. All, without exception, are inspired. Probably thanks to the electrifying presence of Gavazzeni, the gifted although not so famous director. It must be him, I don’t see any other way that every single musician could bring out the best in him or her for this recording. This recording truly deserves EMIs title of “Greatest Recordings of the Century”.

Super HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Angel) Charles Gounod – Roméo et Juliette (Freni/Corelli)

front-small-boxset
Thanks to a friend, I can offer you the possibility to compare (sonically) my UK EMI 1st edition with this US Angel 1st edition
This is maybe the best possible tragic-love story by Shakespeare you will ever listen to. Young Mirella Freni and Franco Corelli (oh, what a dream-team) weep all doubts away. When you have listened to the grandious sounding opening sequence of this opera, you’ll be sure: this is the best “Romeo and Juliet” on earth.

HD-Vinyl 96/24 (EMI) Aaron Copland – Symphony No. 3 (Mata)

front_small_boxset
With the famous “Fanfare for the common man” at beginning of part 4. Again the evidence, that a digital production sounds on vinyl much much better than on CD. Eduardo Mata’s recording of the epic Third Symphony of Copland is one of the very best performances of this work on record.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI) Richard Strauss – Ein Heldenleben/A Hero’s Life (Karajan)

front_small_boxsetIf you are looking for a definitive version of “Ein Heldenleben” this is the one, so beatifully recorded and phrases are just fantastic and clean. The powerful berlin philharmonic orchestra has never been so huge and strong as in this recording. A must have.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Requiem (Barenboim)

front_small_boxsetThis recording is a gorgeous performance of Mozart’s excellent Requiem. Sheila Armstrong, the soprano, has a shimmering, pure, beautiful, above all a Mozartian voice – she shines in this recording. Baker has a rich voice that she uses with intelligence. Nicolai Gedda is radiant in the tenor role and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau is at his considerable finest as the baritone. Daniel Barenboim conducts extremely well, and gets great singing and playing from his chorus and orchestra.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI) Giuseppe Verdi – Requiem (Giulini)

front_small_boxsetEven though the corruption of the Heirarchy, mainly about power, put him off the Church, and made it difficult for him to believe, Verdi expresses here his faith, or longing for faith. The Giulini recording of Verdi’s “Requiem” has long been a favorite of many listeners, both for the conducting and the quality of the soloists, most of whom were at the peak of their careers.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (EMI/Angel) Sir Edward Elgar – Violin Concerto (Menuhin/Boult)

front_small_boxset
Menuhin’s actual violin timbre is uniquely soulful and produces for me a sense of longing and possible regret for times past which seems to perfectly match with so much of Elgar’s musical psyche.
