Brutal HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Telarc) Aaron Copland – Appalachian Spring/Rodeo/Fanfare For The Common Man (Lane)


The eternal question: Why does a digital recording sound much better, when played from vinyl, compared to the CD? Indeed, this is fact on almost all recordings. But in this case, Telarc used the full benefits of the master tapes (“only” 16 bit & 50 kHz its time), that were played in the full range, not beeing reduced to 44.1 kHz for the CD-norm. The HiFi-sound becomes a Hi-End-sound and you remain speechless and want to hear it again and again. Enjoy!

You are warned: take care of your amp and (more) of your speakers. Don’t play it too loud, until you know, how loud you can get it. Telarc’s timpani and bass drum are terrific!

HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Telarc) Hector Berlioz – Requiem (Shaw)

front-small-boxset
As one would expect, Robert Shaw’s rendition of the Requiem is magnificently polished, with choral singing that is beyond compare. The drama is not quite as pronounced as with Davis and Munch, but the work’s majestic architecture stands clearly revealed. For once, Telarc’s thunderous, bass-heavy pickup adds something to the sonic picture. –Ted Libbey
Any one not familiar with Berlioz’ “Te Deum” should also give this careful consideration. I personally prefer the Te Deum over the Requiem and wonder why the two works are not equally known. This Shaw, although very very good, is (IHMO) slightly under the level of Davis, to call one, but technically is it one of the best (maybe THE best) among all releases of this underestimated masterwork. Friends of HiFi and owners of a very good equipment will find this absolutely amazing. Anyone who catches onto this neglected masterpiece should also investigate the Inbal (on Denon) and the Davis (on Philips).
